62-year-madala rɑpes 10-year-old girl, photographs her privɑte pɑrts


A 62-year-old Concession man is appearing at the Bindura Magistrates Court facing allegation of ƨǝxuɑlly-abusing his neighbour’s 10-year-old daughter and taking pornogrɑphic pictures of her.

The abuse started in 2020 and the man was sold out by the nɑked pictures of the minor that he kept in his phone.

On November 16, police received a tip-off that the accused had semi-nude photos in his mobile phone involving a learner at a local primary school leading to his arrest.

He appeared before Magistrate Mr Amos Mbobo and is in custody.

The Prosecutor Mr Carson Kundiona said the 62-year-old man is self-employed as a brick layer.

The court heard that sometime in 2020, the accused person visited the workplace of the complainant’s mother and bought quarry stones.

The complainant was with her mother and he invited her to his house.

When the minor went to the old man’s house he then showed her some photos of his house which were in his mobile phone.

On another date, the complainant was on her way from school when she saw the accused person standing by his door.

He called her into his house and asked her to sit on the sofa.

He pulled up her school uniform and ƨǝxuɑlly abused her once before giving her a dollar.

He threatened her with death and told her to visit him whenever she wished before releasing her to go to school.

From that day, the minor would occasionally visit the accused and he would ƨǝxuɑlly abuse her.

The court heard that on November 13, the complainant went again to see the accused person in the morning before going to school.

He gave her his mobile phone to watch pornogrɑphic videos and he pulled up the complainant’s uniform and started touching her privɑte pɑrts.

After ƨǝxuɑlly assaulting her, he started to take pornogrɑphic pictures of her privɑte pɑrt while cɑressing it with his left hand which had an animal wrist band.

He gave her a dollar and let her go.

After the police received the tip off inquiries were made at Dandamera Primary School using the photos to identity the minor.

On November 17, the complainant was interviewed in the presence of the school’s guidance and counselling teacher and she opened up about the abuse.

She described the accused’s left hand which has an animal skin wrist band. She also described his room which she said had no floor, has black leather sofas with cream cushions, a black stove, a white fridge, a big plasma television and white curtains.

This was confirmed by the police on arresting the accused.
