Music Promoter Chitimbe Faces Rape Charges
Music promoter and entrepreneur Nhamo Chitimbe is out on remand after being charged with rape.
The popular reggae promoter is accused of drugging and then raping a female friend last week.
It is said that he met the complainant and a friend on 3 February at Newlands Shopping Centre where he asked the woman to accompany him into town to get some stuff after which he would bring her back. He however drove her to Mbare where he bought a bottle of Johnny Walker and handed her a spiked drink. She then passed out after which he took her to his home in Greencroft. She awoke to find herself naked and with him on top of her.
She pushed him off, took a bath before Chitimbe took her home. She then reported the matter to the police.
He is out on $200 bail with conditions that require him to report to the police, submit all his travel documents and not interfere with witnesses. He denies the charges
If true, this would be a blow to the reggae community which views him in high regard. Losing a man of his stature especially in such disappointing circumstances would be a huge blow. However if it has happened the woman needs her justice.
