A group of female sperm harvesters is on the loose in Bulawayo after three women reportedly drugged and sxually assaulted a man who they had given a lift, with police warning the public not to accept free rides from strangers.

In the past, there have been reports of women who allegedly pounce on hitchhikers and later collect their sperms reportedly for ritual purposes.

Last month, three women allegedly kidnapped and took turns sxually assaulting a 21-year-old man in Harare. The trio gave a lift to the man, along Samora Machel Avenue, before injecting him with an unknown substance. They then took turns raping him and collecting his semen.

In Bulawayo, 2016, three women allegedly abducted a man from Cowdray Park and forced him to have sx with them before taking away his semen.

The suspected sperm harvesters were said to be driving a white Toyota Cresta.

In 2011, three Gweru women were arrested after being intercepted at a road-block with 31 used condoms containing semen.

The three, Rosemary Chakwizira, 24, Sophie Nhokwara, 26, and Netsai Nhokwara, 24, all of Mkoba Village Four, faced 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault but were acquitted due to lack of evidence.

Bulawayo provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Abednico Ncube, said on Monday evening, three unknown women allegedly waylaid a 26-year-old man from Pumula South suburb into their car after asking him for directions.

“Police in Bulawayo are investigating a case of aggravated indecent assault whereby a male adult aged 26 of Pumula South was sxually abused by three unknown female adults,” he said.

“Circumstances are that on the 27th of June 2022 at around 1900 hours the complainant was walking along an unnamed tarred road in Old Pumula, Bulawayo when he was stopped by one unknown female adult who was driving a blue Honda Fit (registration number unknown).

“The driver asked the complainant for directions to reach Ashy’s Sports Bar, Pumula South, Bulawayo. The complainant offered to accompany the accused person since he was also going in the same direction,” said Insp Ncube.

He said after gulping the drink the man lost consciousness and woke up on a bed with the three women naked.

“The complainant became unconscious after drinking the beer and only gained consciousness when he was lying on a bed in a house somewhere with one female accused person standing naked beside the bed but he cannot remember the place.

“The accused person undressed the complainant who then lost consciousness again,” said Insp Ncube.

He said the man woke up the next morning, dumped near Robert Sinyoka Primary School.
