Two Pregnant Women Raped At Hospital Maternity Home 

 

The police have confirmed that two pregnant women were raped at a hospital’s maternity home in Matobo district in Matabeleland South province.

The shocking incident happened last Wednesday after two men broke into the room where the expecting mothers were sleeping.

Online publication Zimlive reports that the two men broke into the room where the expecting mothers were sleeping through one of the windows.

Three expecting mothers were in the room when the men broke in. One of the three women reacted quickly and managed to flee from the room.

Unfortunately, the two other women were not as quick. There were set upon by the two invaders who went on to rape them.

The women are reported to have been at least 8 months pregnant and were being housed at Maphisa District Hospital.

Rural hospitals in Zimbabwe allow pregnant women to stay at the hospital’s maternity houses when they are a few weeks away from their expected delivery date. This is done to ensure that the expecting mothers who may be from remote areas without transport, can safely deliver and receive the medical care that they may need.

The police are yet to arrest the two men who carried out the heinous abuse of the two pregnant women.

Assistant Inspector Thabani Mkhwananzi of Matabeleland South police told the publication,

“We haven’t yet made an arrest and investigations are still underway.”

Matabeleland South Provincial Medical Director Dr Rudo Chikodzore said that ministry of health was working on plans to improve the security at the hospitals. Chikodzore told the Sunday News.

“We’ve intensified patrols by our guards and we plan to repair the vandalised perimeter fence, erect burglar bars, and screen doors in all departments.”

“The ministry has also installed a huge solar plant so we need to erect street lights within the institution as well.”

Chikodzore also said that, unfortunately, attacks on pregnant women are actually more common than people may think. However, she did not provide statistics for the attack.
