Randy ZRP Officer Hit With $3m Lawsuit After Locking Up Woman For Turning Down Sexual Advances
A randy, vengeful ZRP officer who threw a woman behind bars for turning down his sexual advances has been hit with a $3 million lawsuit.
Not merely content with arresting her, Zimbabwe Republic Police constable Brian Kasu brutalised Nomatter Chikunguru and filed false charges against her. Chikunguru was charged with assaulting or resisting a peace officer.
Following her brutalisation and false arrest, the 27-year-old woman was finally vindicated at the Rusape Magistrate’s court. After a full trial, Rusape Magistrate Rufaro Mangwiro found Chikunguru not guilty and dismissed all charges against her.
Following the not guilty verdict at the magistrate’s court, Chikunguru filed a $3 million lawsuit against Constable Brian Kasu, ZRP Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga and Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe.
The mortician is being represented by Peggy Tavagadza of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR). Chikunguru is seeking an order compelling Kasu, Matanga and Kazembe Kazembe to pay her RTGS$3 million as compensation for the violation of her rights by Kasu, who arrested and ill-treated her after she spurned his sexual advances.
Out of a total of RTGS$3 million, Chikunguru said RTGS$2 780 will be compensation for the medical expenses which she incurred as she sought treatment. The remaining RTGS$2 997 220 will be cover for damages arising from pain, suffering and nervous shock.
Providing more detail on the case, the ZLHR said
Chikunguru, who is employed as a mortician at Heritage Funeral Parlour and is stationed at Rusape General Hospital in Manicaland province, was arrested by Kasu, who is employed by ZRP as a dog handler, on 9 April 2021 while she was on her way home.
The arrest came after Kasu had asked Chikunguru where she was coming from and was told that she was a mortician coming from work. Kasu made further inquiries regarding whom Chikunguru stayed with and she advised him that she resides alone.
Kasu then suggested that he wanted to go to Chikunguru’s home for a sleepover and she advised him that she had no interest in sleeping with him.
Thereafter, Kasu gave orders to the police dog and unleashed it on Chikunguru without any provocation and he proceeded to force march the mortician to a ZRP vehicle and in the process bragging that he wanted to deal with her and to make sure that the dog bites her buttocks as that was the source of her arrogance.
After this ill-treatment, Chikunguru, who sustained injuries on her body, was taken to Rusape Police Station where she was detained and charged with assaulting or resisting a peace officer as defined in section 176 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.
Constable Brian Kasu is yet to respond to the lawsuit.
