Sad tale for couple caught having ‘picnic' in the bushes.
The Kadoma couple was last Saturday afternoon mugged by two unknown assailants as they were having a picnic near a local hotel.
The couple was handcuffed and robbed of phones, US$150 and other valuables before being held hostage until 8pm the same day. The two accomplices then raped the woman.
Provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Margaret Chitove confirmed the incident.
“We are appealing to anyone with information that might lead to the arrest of the assailants that attacked two friends in Kadoma around 2pm on Saturday. The two lost valuables as the culprits later raped the female friend.
Cases of robberies are on the increase which calls for a deep national reflection on the moral fabric of the country.
