“My case didn’t even see the light of day,” Bulawayo Model Narrates How ex-Minister Jonathan Moyo Raped Her 11 Years Later
Legendary beauty pageant instructor Sipho Mazibuko says she has been through a lot and wants to once again come out about her rape incident happened 11 years ago ex-minister Jonathan Moyo and controversial former Zimbabwe Tourism Authority former boss Karikoka Kaseke.
In a Facebook post on Friday, the beauty pageant instructor said she made a police report 11 years back at Bulawayo Central Police Station, but no legal action was taken except silencing her by admitting her at a psychiatric hospital.
The fugitive ex-Minister Prof J. Moyo who is believed to be in Kenya left Zimbabwe in November 2017 in the wake of Operation Restore Legacy.
In 2011, Sipho made headlines when she was reported mentally challenged.
She reveals now, 11 years later than she had a full mental breakdown after she was sexually abused by Professor Jonathan Moyo, then Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education and was ignored by the police.
“Well, I have decided to empty my closet and speak out about a man who sexually abused me when I was pregnant and went on to silence me because he was VERY powerful and untouchable. Please read the attached newspaper article written when I had my FULL NERVOUS BREAKDOWN, ” she began her long Facebook post about the incident.
But the police did not take the matter seriously.
” I went to the police to open a docket against these evil men who had tormented my mind with sexual and emotional abuse.
The police recorded my statement but nothing was done to investigate my case. Till today my docket died a natural death. After my police report, I was admitted and the same men made sure my admission to hospital was turned into a media curse. I was made a fool.
My case didn’t even see the light of day. The police did NOTHING to those powerful men. They continued with their lives and I languished in a mental hospital. I had given them their names in my docket but they had to be protected because they were in government offices they were ministers, ” Mazibuko narrates.
She, however, did not give many details of what transpired on the same day but revealed she was sexually abused by Jonathan Moyo.
” Well I was sexually abused by PROFESSOR JONATHAN MOYO and was too scared to even report or tell anyone until that fateful day 11 years ago when I went and told the police at BULAWAYO central police station what he had done to me years ago
It happened years ago but it traumatised me. The silence was deafening. It was a loud drumbeat in my mind and I caved in. My mind couldn’t take it anymore.”
Sipho encouraged other women who fell victim to powerful men like Jonso to come out of the closet and expose their abusers.
” Something has to give. These powerful men are still abusing women. YES, they r and I encourage my fellow sisters to STOP THE ROT. let’s expose these devils. There is no need to keep quiet while they continue abusing woman after woman
There I have spoken. A load has been lifted from my shoulders
If anybody wants to know more they can talk to my lawyers. I am freeing myself of the emotional baggage. Those men r living their full lives. They abuse us and continue as if nothing happened. I will not be silenced. They can threaten me with death but I am no longer scared of them.”
Professor Jonathan Moyo is currently in hiding in Kenya since 2017 after the ‘coup’ that removed his former boss and mentor, Robert Mugabe from office.
He faces extradition for all the crimes levelled against him, including fraud and rape.
When questions, were thrown at him on his Twitter page with regards to the rape allegation, Jonso, who just celebrated his birthday a few days ago, did not bother to entertain the subject.
