Tonderai Mutindimuri (18) from Rongo Village under Chief Chitsa in Gutu has been remanded in custody after he allegedly begged for and obtained sex from a mentally ill aunt.
He then allegedly went to sleep with the aunt regularly until she became pregnant.
The State alleges that Mutindimuri approached his aunt (30) in October 2018 while she was bathing by a stream and asked for sex and she consented.
The law says that mentally challenged people are not capable of consenting to sex.
From that day, the two had sex on different occasions. The matter came to light when the complainant’s mother Grace Mujoko discovered that the complainant was pregnant in January 2019.
He was remanded in custody for continuation of the case.
