As part of deterrent measures to stamp out rape, Zimbabwean Information minister Christopher Mushohwe has revealed that the government has proposed a mandatory 60-year jail sentence for people convicted of raping minors aged 12 years and below, and the disabled, while a 40-year prison term is to stand for all rape cases. The proposals were said to have been made in Cabinet and would help as a guide to the proposed amendments to the Criminal Law Act.
