Police revealed that Kudyafodya who was arrested and is facing rape charges, manhandled the victim and raped her once.
The crime surfaced after the wife disclosed the rape to her husband soon after the incident.
Acting Manicaland police spokesman, Sergeant Muzondiwa Clean, said the suspect was assisting police with investigations.
"Kudyafodya asked for his friend's wife to prepare some food for his children since his wife had been admitted at Hauna District Hospital and she complied.
