A married Zimbabwean nurse working in a British mental health hospital has been suspended from work after being accused of having sex sessions with one of her patients, Britain's biggest selling tabloid newspaper,The Sun has reported.
Mrs Rhoda Makambaire who earns £30 000 a year is accused of having sex sessions with a mentally-ill and brutal patient at Broadmoor mental health hospital in Berkshire where she is employed as a mental health nurse.
The Sun, which sells over 4 million copies everyday, says the patient involved in the sex scandal is rapist, Kelly Edney (29) who also has convictions for arson, assault and hoax bomb calls.
Mrs Makambaire, of Bracknell, Berks, is a mental health specialist nurse on the dangerous and severe personality disorder unit.
Mrs Makambaire and rapist Edney allegedly romped on the mental hospital's Epsom Ward - for patients who are deemed incurable or show no signs of remorse.
On being quizzed by police Edney said he had full and oral sex with the nurse.
Another nurse was also arrested. She is accused of keeping watch as Edney and the mum of one had sex.

The nurses, in their 30s, were quizzed by cops under the Sexual Offences Act.
They were suspended along with a third nurse who allegedly knew about the affair.
Edney was yesterday moved from Broadmoor to top-security Rampton hospital, Notts.
His room was sealed off while officers removed sheets and clothing for forensic checks.
The rapist, who also has convictions for arson, assault and hoax bomb calls, allegedly told cops he had full and oral sex with a nurse.
Broadmoor in Berkshire was last month slammed for high suicide rates and failure to protect patients. Bosses are horrified by the latest scandal.
An insider said: "It doesn't get much worse than this."
Edney, of Bridgwater, Somerset, was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
Police and Broadmoor confirmed the investigation but refused to comment further.
