London: Gangs of pretty women in Zimbabwe have been raping men to harvest their sperm for use in traditional luck-enhancing `juju` rituals, according to local media reports.

Local woman, Susan Dhliwayo , claims she pulled her car over recently to pick up a group of male hitchhikers and they refused to get in, as they feared they were going to be raped, the Daily Mail reported.

"Now, men fear women. They said, `We can`t go with you because we don`t trust you’," Dhliwayo, 19, said.

According to reports, victims of the freeway femme fatales are drugged or subdued at gun or knife-point - one man was even compelled to perform at `snake-point` when his rapists brandished a live snake. The male victims are then given a sexual stimulant and forced to have sex continually, occasionally unprotected, before being dumped on the side of the road.

In November, three sisters and one of their boyfriends were charged in a Harare court for attacking male hitchhikers and collecting their semen. The Nhokwara sisters were detained when they were involved in a car accident and police found 31 used condoms in the boot of their car.

They face 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault, as a woman raping a man is not a criminal offense in the country . The sisters have claimed that they were merely hardworking prostitutes.
