Munashe Mazhingi was arrested and convicted in Kariba after making another false report of armed robbery and rape.
The young man was reported by the ZBC News alleging that he was raped and robbed by women in Ngundu on his way from South Africa.
Police spokesperson, Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said Mazhingi filed reports of aggravated indecent assault at various police stations that include Chivi, Chiredzi, Karoi and Kariba and his arrest is expected to clear all these cases which had caused alarm and despondence in the country.
It has since been established that Mazhingi come from Ringa village under Chief Zimunya in Manicaland province.
He is alleged to have confessed to the police that he filed the false reports in order to get sympathy from people who would then give him money and food.
Mazhingi was arrested in Kariba after making another false report and it has been established that he was using different names to make the police report.
In some police stations, he identified himself as Tapiwa Sibanda, Tawadza Nelson Pedzisayi, Collen Chumasi and Tawanda Mlambo Dhliwayo.
Cases of males reporting aggravated indecent assaults against women has been a concern among Zimbabweans as the law does not recognise women as potential rapists.
