Lobels Boss Arrested Over Sexual Harassment

Lobels Boss Arrested Over Sexual Harassment

Lobels Biscuits Company in Bulawayo’s chief operations officer (COO) Andrew Dinhidza has been arrested for allegedly sexually attacking several female subordinates who feared losing their jobs.

B-Metro reported a source as saying four women had since filed rape charges against Dinhidza.

Complainant One

According to the B-Metro source, one of the victims is a 29-year-old woman who is employed as a packer. Said the source:

Sometime in 2017, the 29-year-old woman went to look for a job at Lobels Biscuits Company at the time Dinhidza was the Human Resources Manager and he recruited her.

After that, he approached her demanding payment for employing her. At first, she turned down his request, but he threatened to expel her, forcing her to give in and slept with him.

Sometime in October this year, the woman said Dinhidza called her to his office and demanded to have sex with her and she did not resist because she was afraid of losing her job.

The woman then reported the rape incidents at Kumalo Police station after protests were recently staged against Dinhidza over allegations of nepotism and sexual harassment.

Complainant Two

The alleged rape victim is a 33-year-old woman who resides in Nkulumane suburb.

Allegations are that the woman failed to report for duty for two consecutive days.

When she eventually reported for duty she informed her immediate supervisor who allegedly turned her away. Said the source:

Desperate for her job, she approached Dinhidza who told her that if she wanted to save her job she must have sex with him and she agreed before they had sex in his office and her job was saved.

The victim reported the alleged rape at Donnington Police Station on Tuesday last week.

Complainant Three

A 40-year-old woman from Entumbane suburb was allegedly sexually attacked by Dinhidza when he called her to his office and asked her if she wanted to be employed permanently.

He promised the complainant that if she wants to be employed as a permanent worker she has to sleep with him and she agreed before he drove to a lodge in the city centre and had sex with her.

It is further alleged that the two had sex on another occasion in Dinhidza car near the company premises.

However, Dinhidza reportedly never fulfilled his promise.

On 7 December the woman joined a protest against all forms of abuse and later filed a rape case against Dinhidza at Bulawayo Central Police Station.

Complainant Four

A 37-year-old woman who is employed as a machine operator reportedly fell prey to Dinhidza after she approached him to have her husband who had been fired reinstated. Said the source:

She approached Dinhidza in his office and pleaded with him to have her husband re-hired but Dinhidza told her that he could only be reinstated on condition that she had sex with him and she bowed down to the demands and had sex with him. After that, the victim’s husband was re-hired.

On another occasion, he picked her up at the company premises and had sex with her at a lodge.

The woman reported the alleged rape cases at Donnington Police Station on 7 December 2022 leading to Dinhidza’s arrest.

The alleged rape victims and about 496 aggrieved employees are being represented by their lawyers Task Vhiki and Mary Nyika of Macharaga Law Chambers. | B-Metro

Is there any element of rape here ?These ladies were in agreement with Dinhidza , they wanted favours , They are now reporting coz vazo dhinhidva vakawanda , I understand noone is below eighteen years which I think they are above legal age of consent, why didn't they report in 2017?

Yes, on the face of it, there are a number of elements of rape such duress & undue influence & abuse of authority. Some of the victims did not freely consent, but did so only out of fear of losing their jobs. That cannot count as wilful & free consent.

There are also issues of ****ual harassment of women at the workplace.

However a good lawyers will simply make the state witnesses look like they have no credibility. These may be work place grudges & it seems like the workers are acting in collision against a despicable boss.

why hide the names of those woman,, this Mr Dinhidza is yet to defend himself in court , so why expose his name, If a men is accused of rape noone bothers to listen to him , Look at that father of 9 year old from Tsholotsho everyone thought he was a rapist , why should men be treated unfairly, every organization supports women .

The problem with rape allegations and cases in Zimbabwe is that they allow a long period to elapse to such an extent that no traces of evidence can be exhibited before the courts. The only material that remains is the complainant's testimony upon cross examination. Any woman can report and accuse a man of rape even after 20 years and come out victorious even if it is a lie. Recently we have witnessed the case of a father who was sentenced and convicted of raping his teenage daughter after the teenage's mother had coached her to raise a false accusations against her father so the mother could level it out against her husband on a dispute they had.

This is a two sided story
Looking @Dinhidza
The likes of Walter Magaya, T Freddy who claim to be messengers of God were accused of rape even today some of these women are still reporting rape cases same to @Dinhidza.

Dinhidza has got feelings like any other men right. A health man must feel something whenever he gets closer to a woman. M.r Dinhidza was supposed to go and hire **** prostitutes to fulfill his ****ual desires. The problem is that @Dinhidza saved his pocket money by sleeping with women who value work than their **** (risking their husband's health)

Who is evil now?
@Dinhidza risking his wife's health by sleeping with hundreds of women how evil is that!
Who benefited a lot?
@Dinhidza saved his muller #Successful man
@Raped women got their **** ****ed by @Dinhidza plus were employed permanently

Looking @Raped women 💃💃💃💃💃
Women are evil 👎🏻
Who are cowards #Protesting against one successful man #Dinhidza🕺
Women serving the nation's Zimbos
Biscuit company after having **** with @Dinhidza how embarassing is that😂😂😂😂 any where not every women but others are disgusting...
