Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Than­deka Moyo

A HONDA Fit driver from Bu­l­awayo al­legedly de­tained a Form Two boy at his home for five days and forced him to have sex dur­ing the pe­riod.

Price Dube (25) from Emakhan­deni sub­urb al­legedly picked the boy from his home and took him to­gether with other young­sters for a beer drink at a nightspot in the city. He al­legedly used his ve­hi­cle as bait, promis­ing the boy reg­u­lar free rides.

A court heard yes­ter­day that Dube told the teen that he was the man and should insert his or­gan into his (Dube’s) anus.

e boy was res­cued by his grand­mother who, af­ter a tip off, en­gaged the po­lice. De­tec­tives found the boy at Dube’s home af­ter he had been miss­ing for five days, the court heard.

The driver ap­peared be­fore re­gional mag­is­trate Mr Joseph Mabeza fac­ing an ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault charge.

He pleaded not guilty and Mr Mabeza re­manded him out of cus­tody to Septem­ber 30 for con­tin­u­a­tion of trial.

The State led by Mr Ti­nashe Dzipe al­leges that the boy met Dube through his girl­friend.

“On July 4 at around 11AM, Dube drove in his ve­hi­cle and found the boy chat­ting to his friend out­side his home. He asked him to jump into the car and he com­plied,” said Mr Dzipe.

“The two picked two boys and a girl. Dube then drove into an un­known bar along 3rd Av­enue and brought beer for the crew.”

The court heard that the boys and the girl drank beer till about 3AM the fol­low­ing day.

“At that time, Dube then de­cided that it was time they went home. They dropped off the two boys and the girl at their homes. Dube how­ever took the boy to his home and or­dered him to sleep on his bed,” he said.

Mr Dzipe said the boy was dead drunk and Dube re­moved all his clothes. “Dube then forced the boy to have anal in­ter­course with him without pro­tec­tion for about 30 min­utes. He then promised to give the boy $20 and they slept.”

He added that they went to a shop in the morn­ing around 7AM and bought food.

“On July 7, Dube took the boy near West Com­mon­age Court where he was panel beat­ing his ve­hi­cle. All that time, the boy’s grand­mother was not aware that he was now stay­ing with Dube,” he said.

Mr Dzipe said, “On July 8, the boy’s grand­mother went to Dube’s home ac­com­pa­nied by po­lice and they ap­pre­hended him”. — @thamamoe.
