A 26-year-old man from Matsheumhlope suburb and employed at a mine in Hope Fountain on the outskirts of Bulawayo was arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old schoolgirl.
Tyson Maseko is said to have bedded the juvenile at his house on 18 March 2021. It is reported that on the day in question he invited the minor girl to his house where he allegedly had se_xual intercourse with her.
The matter reportedly came to light after her parents noticed that she could not walk properly. Upon being questioned she revealed that she had been deflowered by Maseko.
Maseko has since appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Rachel Mukanga charged with the girl’s defilement. He was not asked to plead to the charge of having se_xual intercourse with a minor and was remanded out of custody to 31 March on $2 000 bail.
