A former City of Harare Finance Department attachee has written to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) accusing former Human Resource Director Mr Cainos Chingombe of sexual abuse.
Rutendo Mnyamana accuses Chingombe of having turned her into a “sex slave” during her time at Town House resulting in her escaping to South Africa.
According to her, Chingombe ‘travelled with her to almost all workplaces while many saw it as a favour so as to earn extra income through allowances and make ends meet, Chingombe saw it as an opportunity to violate me”.
She says he used, “intimidating tactics…as he portrayed himself as someone who could hire or fire at will”, she says in her letter.
Mnayanama says Chingombe had multiple other women whom he abused using the same modus operandi.
“He would hire his lovers, while ladies (married or single) set to appear before hearings would have their cases disappear in exchange for sex”.
“When it came to students on attachment he slept with 99% of them in exchange for protection, money or a promise for a job after Varsity as happened in my case”, she added.
Chingombe, who has since been fired from Council on a different matter, could not be reached for comment at the time of publishing.
The complainant has since promised to write the same complaint to the President.
Below is the letter.
