Prosecuting, Miss Chipo Hungwe told the court that the abuse had been going on for a while until a time when the girl decided to report the matter.
“On a date unknown to the prosecutor but sometime in 2021, the accused person slept with the complainant on the same bed and he removed her clothes,” the court heard.
Accused person, as usual, took his erect manhood and placed it against the toddler’s private parts and rubbed his manhood against her until he eja_culated.
Accused person, the court was further told, always threatened to beat up the complainant if ever she reported the matter to her mother.
“The matter however came to light when the toddler was sent to buy bread and she proceeded to report the matter at Redcliff Police Station leading to the man’s arrest,” Hungwe told the court.
