According to her, she had traveled to Zanzibar, Tanzania to celebrate her 23rd birthday on April 16, 2021. On her birthday night, a rapist who spoke Swahili only crawled into her bed as he tried to rape her.
During her struggle, she began to threaten the rapist with the word “HIV”, so that he could leave her. Unfortunately, he didn’t really leave her, until she told the rapist to get a condom.
The rapist came out of his room to take the condom and that’s how Zainab Oladehinde went to the room in which a Russian couple had stayed. She told everything to the Russian couple.
The next morning, she reported the horrific incident to the manager, who informed her that they had gone to Nungwi Police Station. Unfortunately, the police station kicked her out after saying that no penetration had been done to her.

This incident happened a year ago in April 2021 but I could not talk about it because I have been in therapy for a year to heal from the psychological trauma of this experience.
