“I was ‘sexually charged and I couldn’t help myself at that moment and resort to having sex with her, so My grandmother cried for help but I overpowered her and had my way,” said the Luka.
“She tried holding me down but I escaped and ran to a market where I push wheelbarrow for a living.
“I later saw a group of people who came after me, beat me up and handed me over to the police.
“It is the devil’s handwork, I want my grandfather and the elders in my village to forgive me.”
Also confirming the incident, a neighbour to the victim, Mrs Mary Samuel said that she heard the victim shouting for help while she fetching water from the tap.
”I was shocked at what I saw. I tried to hold him down but he escaped. I raised an alarm and he was later apprehended in a market where he works.”
