According to State prosecutor, Carol Matanga, the incident occurred on 31 January 2019 at about 9.30 am.

After the beer had run out, Ncube reportedly sent his friend to sell some groceries, in order to raise money to buy beer.
In his friend’s absence, Ncube raped the woman who had fallen asleep. The friend returned and found Ncube in the very act.
A report was made at Luveve Police Station by the woman resulting in Ncube’s arrest. The woman was then sent to Mpilo Central Hospital for medical examination.
