AN 18-year-old se x worker from Bulawayo has been arrested for allegedly squeezing sem en from a used cond om into the pri vates of her neighbour’s six-year-old daughter.
Nothando Ngwenya from Cowdray Park suburb on Thursday appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube facing one count of aggravated indecent assault.
She was not asked to plead and remanded in custody to December 13 for trial.
Ngwenya told the court that she was not sure if she committed the offence or not.
“I do not know if I did it or not because I was drunk,” she said.
Prosecuting, Ms Magret Takawira told the court that on Monday at around 4PM, the young girl, who cannot be named for ethical reasons, was asleep at her place of residence when Ngwenya came and called her out of the house.
“The young girl went outside then Ngwenya took her to her place of residence,” said Ms Takawira. On arrival Ngwenya left the girl inside her room, closed the door from outside and went out. She returned after some minutes holding a used cond om and removed the girl’s pa nties. The accused squeezed out se men from a used cond om into the girl’s pri vates.”
The court also heard that when the juvenile went home, she removed her pan ties because they were irritating her which aroused suspicion from her mother who then discovered that there was sem en on the pan ties.
The matter was reported to police in Cowdray Park, which led to Ngwenya’s arrest.
The girl was referred to hospital and a medical report may be used as evidence in court
