The Herald reports that Harare Slay King Denzel Chikore will spend eight years in prison after he was found guilty of raping his friend.

Chikore appeared before Harare Magistrate Mr Taurai Manuwere who sentenced him to 12 years in jail before suspending four on condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years.

The court heard that on January 14, 2023 at around 5 pm the complainant and Chikore were at number 19 Banchory road Mandara preparing for an event together with other friends.

The complainant and Chikore had dinner and a few drinks before proceeding to her room to sleep leaving the door unlocked since her cousin was supposed to join her later.

At around 2 am the complainant woke up and discovered that Chikore was having sexual intercourse with her without her consent.

A report was later made at ZRP Highlands. The accused person was arrested and brought to ZRP Highlands. The complainant was sent to hospital for medical examination and treatment.
