A 27-Year-Old man allegedly lured 11 women from Norton, promising them employment in Harare before raping and robbing them.
Trymore Musakanya from Kingsdale Farm in Norton raped four of his victims in a bushy area in Pomona, Harare, after telling them that he was a Satanist.
He is facing 22 counts of rape and robbery.
He appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Hoseah Mujaya and was remanded in custody.
Musakanya pleaded not guilty to all counts and told the court that he loaned the women money.
Prosecutor Mr Ephraim Zinyandu, alleges that in September last year Musakanya approached a woman in Norton and sweet talked her into a job in Harare.
He promised the woman that food and accommodation will be provided and the woman was interested.
They proceeded to Harare together and dropped off before Marlborough around 4pm and waited till it was dark.
It is alleged that Musakanya led the woman through a bushy area in Pomona and attacked her.
He allegedly told her that he was lying about the job.
The court heard that he threatened that he was a Satanist, who wanted to suck her blood and cause his satanic snakes to sexually abuse her.
Musakanya allegedly snatched the woman’s handbag containing two cellphones.
The woman managed to escape.
The following month Musakanya lured another woman and attacked her on the same spot.
With threats that he was a Satanist Musakanya managed to rob the woman of cash and valuables.
A Norton teacher also fell victim to Musakanya’s tactics.
He allegedly sweet-talked her into a job as a till operator in Harare.
The pair proceeded to Harare and in a bushy area in Ashdown Park, Mabelreign, the accused pounced on the woman.
He again told her that he was a Satanist and the woman indicated that she was also a Satanist.
Musakanya snatched the woman’s satchel with her academic certificates and cash.
Two other women who were on their menstruation periods were not sexually abused but lost valuables.
