Harare(ZimEye) THE BOSS for the Harare Central prison has been bedding female workers at work and was recently confronted by one of his victims’ husband and admitted he had shamefully abused his wife, ZimEye can exclusively reveal.
Christmas Tarwira, Officer in Charge at the Harare Central prison was caught ‘body on top’ with a fellow work-colleague’s wife early this year.
The victim was Tarwira’s secretary and sources who confirmed our findings said it ‘was purely an office love affair which only happened at work. Murwira, who was then fined two bulls by his victims’ husband, is partners in notoriety with his immediate junior deputy Sup’ George Mutimbanyoka who both have continued to use their positions to abuse female prison guards.
One of the victims, a female worker by name Priscilla Nyamangodo is now dead after she was found with the deadly HIV-AIDS virus.
Private Court Hearing
Sup’ Christmas Tarwira was caught having intercourse with female employee for her protection in this article will be been renamed - Shandi Dube. Shandi, is wife to a fellow male prison guard who upon discovering the sickening abuse of his wife, then confronted his father in law who coincidentally also works for the prison service at Chikurubi maximum prison. The father in law is the one who then called for and facilitated a private informal court hearing.
Soon afterwards an informal kangaroo court was convened in May this year during which Christmas Tarwira was fined two bulls as payment for his shameful notoriety, documented evidence in possession of ZimEye reveal. Shandi’s husband has now moved back with his wife following the traditional court payment.
No disciplinary action taken
No disciplinary action has since been taken against Tarwira and he continues to work for the prison service as boss at Harare’s Central Prison. “According to work ethics, both Tarwira and Mutimbanyoka should be out of work right now”, a source told ZimEye.
This is not the first time Tarwira has been caught in the act of intimacy at work. he was recently also caught pleasuring himself on another female employee while he was working at Chikurubi maximum prison.
Victim died of HIV AIDS
Another case of open sex abuses at the Central Prison is that of Tarwira’s junior Sup’ George Mutimbanyoka. Mutimbanyoka was caught by prison guards several times pleasuring himself on an office chair with the late Priscilla Nyamangodo. No disciplinary action was taken against him and his victim died of the deadly HIV AIDS virus in 2008. Mutimbanyoka is also in love affairs with two other female employees, single mothers, who he has housed at two different staff houses, ZimEye is reliably informed.
It is not clear if the prison bosses utilise condoms when they sleep with female employees.
90% of all personnel joining the prison service into senior posts and transferred from the army are reported to be all HIV positive. ZimEye advocates that the ministry of Justice has to address the concerns of the female employees who are vulnerable and all victims of abuse should be compensated fully.
Zimbabwe and South Africa have experienced a number of reports on prison officers being caught in intimacy at work and both countries have also seen prisoners escape in circumstances believed to be due to mere negligence. Barely two months ago two prison guards were caught on camera right in the act of sex while guarding a prisoner at a local hospital. (ZimEye, Zimbabwe)
