ZIM TWINS JAILED IN THE UK


A pair of Zimbabwean twins has been been jailed in the UK for repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl over a period of months.

Steven and Stanley Muchemwa, aged 31, were given 14 and 15 year sentences respectively yesterday at Bolton Crown Court after a judge branded the abuse "particularly shocking".

The Bolton News reports that the offences occurred at the twins' home in Dunsop Drive, Bolton, where both men raped her, usually in their bedroom and sometimes when other children were also sleeping in the same room.

During the course of the trial the girl's mother told Judge Graeme Smith that her world had "come crashing down around her" when she heard what had been happening.

The girl’s mother said she was “completely shocked” after her daughter revealed the ordeal to the head teacher at her school and “devastated” that she had trusted the men to take care of her.

The court heard that Steven first started touching the girl early in 2016 when she was just 10 years old, while the pair would go on to rape her in the school summer holidays after she had turned 11.

Both men had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, although Steven would go on to change his plea to guilty before the trial began.
