Girl (15) who claims she was raped by Zimbabwean Top footballer
Retired Highlanders FC striker Njabulo “Tshiki” Ncube has been arrested for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl on multiple occasions at his house in Bulawayo since June this year.
Ncube wore a condom all the time he abused the minor.
Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League’s 2013 top goal scorer was arrested on Tuesday and is expected to appear in court soon.
Sources said the abuse came to light after the teenager reported the sexual assault to the police leading to Ncube’s arrest.
“He has been sleeping with the child since June. He is said to have been using protection in all the encounters,” said the source.
Acting Bulawayo police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Abednico Ncube confirmed the arrest saying investigations were underway.
He said Ncube, who was in custody yesterday afternoon, was assisting police with investigations.
Ncube had stints with FC Platinum, the now defunct Railstars FC and Motor Action FC.
He also played in neighbouring Botswana.
