30 High School girls in group sex scandal

0

A RAPE claim in Gweru turned into a hoax, leading to the collapse of the trial after police established that a group of 30 secondary scholars engaged in consensual group sex after binging at a party.

Some of the students who cannot be named because of their ages have since been excluded from Mkoba 1 High School, according to the provincial education director for Midlands Province, Agnes Gudo.

Police sources said two boys from Gweru’s Mkoba Village Five area reportedly organised the parties where they would invite their schoolmates. The students would have braai, get drunk and then engage in sex orgies.

Lengthy investigations by the police and education authorities unearthed the sex scandal after some of the girls had lied to their parents that they had been raped, resulting in reports being made to the police.

“The boys and girls were in pairs. They drank and danced the night away while having braai and ended up engaging in sex,” said detectives who asked not to be named.

According to sources, a girl who was part of the wild lot, alerted school authorities who eventually notified parents of the students linked to the parties.

However, fearing reprisals from her parents, one girl claimed she had been raped, leading to a case being reported at Nehanda Police Station. Most of the group members however admitted to consensual sex when interrogated.

Police confirmed picking up and questioning some boys over the allegations after which the girls admitted they were not forced into having sex.

But one of the alleged rapes went to court only for the case to collapse after the girl testified that she had fabricated the allegations fearing her parents would beat her up.

The suspected rapists were removed from remand by the Gweru Magistrates’ Court.

Midlands Provincial Education Director, Agnes Gudo, confirmed handling the case but said the students were not expelled from school.

“The pupils organised two parties on two separate dates in March this year and this was during school time. None (of the students) was dismissed or expelled but were excluded for them to look for places at other schools so they can refocus their priorities,” said Gudo.

She added that the students were also receiving counselling services.
