A 21-year-old man was last week arrested on allegations of raping his girlfriend on the pretext of testing her virginity.
Norman Marume (21) allegedly told the girl that he wanted to confirm if she was really a virgin before forcing his sexual banana into the girl's privates.
Allegations are that on 1 September, Marume met the girl who was coming from a shopping centre and asked her to accompany him to his house to see his sister. The girl reportedly agreed and accompanied him to his house. Upon arrival, they found Marume's sister in the kitchen with her boyfriend and they proceeded to his bedroom.
It is alleged that Marume asked the girl if she was a virgin and she told him that she was still a virgin. He reportedly told her that he wanted to test for himself if indeed she was still a virgin but the girl denied. He allegedly grabbed her and forced her on to the bed and forcefully played the bedroom game with her, a conduct which the State says was unlawful.
Further claims are that days after the incident Marume went to the girl's parents and declared his love for the girl. A report was made to the police and the man was arrested.
