According to the National Prosecuting Authority, Chauke raped a woman (69) who was coming from her field on the 3rd of April 2022.

It was proved that he approached the complainant and told her that her grandchildren had stolen his property at his house.

“He hit the complainant once on the right cheek causing her to fall.

“He tied her hands and mouth and force-marched her into a bushy area where he committed the offence,” the court heard.

It was proved that Chauke committed six more similar offences involving a 60-year-old woman, a 46-year-old woman, a 23-year-old woman, a 71-year-old woman, a 36-year-old woman and a 45-year-old woman between July 2022 and April this year.

He is yet to face murder trial.
