Police have arrested and further identified the five female teenagers who were caught in a viral video assaulting a rival and leaving her for dead at a village in Wedza recently.

In a statement on Thursday, police spokesperson Commissioner Paul Nyathi named the suspects as Vimbai Mike (19), Rudo Manjere (17), Lilly Rose Munyoro (16), Lillian Chido Munyoro (17) and Sandra Vhumbunu (17).

They were arrested after police had launched an appeal on Wednesday for information that could lead to the arrest of the culprits.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms the arrest of Vimbai Mike (19), Rudo Manjere (17), Lilly Rose Munyoro (16), Lillian Chido Munyoro (17) and Sandra Vhumbunu (17) on 10th July 2024 in connection with the case of aggravated indecent assault which occurred at Mupfuuri Village, Wedza on 04th July 2024.

Investigations by the police revealed that on 04th July 2024 at 11 00 hours, Rudo Manjere, Lilly Rose Munyoro and Lillian Chido Munyoro lured the victim, Mavis Mada (18), to Vimbai Mike’s homestead at Mupfuuri Village, Wedza on the pretext that they wanted to give her vegetable seedlings. The suspects locked the victim in one of the huts and stripped her naked.

The five suspects took turns to assault the victim with switches and went on to insert three sticks into the victim’s private parts whilst recording a video. The victim fell unconscious and the suspects poured water on her before freeing her naked at 1500 hours.

The arrest of the suspects led to the recovery of a Vivo cellphone which was used to record the assault incident.

Vimbai Mike is detained in police custody while the other four suspects, who are juveniles, have been released in custody of their parents and they will be taken to court for the due processes of the law to take its course.

The complainant is alive and is currently receiving medical attention at Mount St Mary’s Hospital.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police implores the public to settle disputes amicably without resorting to violence. The law will take its course in this case without fear or favour.
