Beauty Standards Turn Violent: Bulawayo Woman Attacked Over Unshaved Privates
A woman in Bulawayo endured a terrifying ordeal when she was subjected to a knife attack, groping, and a brutal thrashing with a rope as punishment for not shaving her private parts. The assault took place after a man emerged from the bushes, leaving the victim traumatized.
Lucky Mukandawire, a 28-year-old resident of Bulawayo’s Matshobana suburb, spotted the woman from a distance and hid in the bushes near the railway line, waiting for her. As the unsuspecting woman, who was on her way to the United College of Education (UCE), passed by, the man emerged from the bushes, brandishing a knife and threatening to stab her if she made any noise.
The Terrifying Choice
According to a source close to the investigation, the woman remained silent as instructed. The assailant then presented her with a horrifying choice: either allow him to insert his fingers into her private parts or face rape. In a desperate attempt to protect herself, the woman chose the former option.
Assault over unshaved private parts
After choosing the former, Mukandawire allegedly kissed her and inserted his fingers into her private parts. He then accused her of not having shaved and thrashed her with a rope before ordering her to run away.

Following the assault, the assailant ordered the woman to flee. After walking a short distance, the traumatized woman encountered two men and bravely shared her ordeal with them. Determined to bring the attacker to justice, the trio embarked on a mission to track him down.
Apprehending the Attacker
While in pursuit of the assailant, the two men who had come to the woman’s aid crossed paths with an off-duty police officer. Joining forces, they continued their search and eventually caught up with the attacker in Nguboyenja suburb near Flyover Bridge, as he was heading home. The group apprehended him and promptly handed him over to the police.
Inspector Abednico Ncube, the spokesperson for the Bulawayo police, confirmed the incident, reported bmetro. He highlighted the importance of community members avoiding footpaths to ensure their safety.
