A young woman living in Australia, Susan Mutami, took to a four-hour Twitter Space in July to reveal how she was allegedly raped by Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa at a young age in Kwekwe, 215km from the capital of Harare, back in the 2000s. Oppositionists and activists say his government is not doing enough on equality and the protection of women’s rights.
Mutami, who further claimed that she was sexually abused by several other politicians, including former state security minister Owen Ncube, former foreign affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo and mines deputy minister Polite Kambamura, has since filed a police report with the Australian police.
Presidential spokesperson George Charamba has since refused to speak on these rape allegations against Mnangagwa and his cabinet ministers.
