Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Andile Tshuma

A KOMBI tout from Bu­l­awayo has been ar­rested for al­legedly hav­ing sex with a 14-year-old pupil in a bush at Ngozi Mine. Twin­lock Moyo (21) of Cow­dray Pa rk sub­urb ap­peared be­fore Western Com­mon­age mag­is­trate Mr Stephen Ndhlovu fac­ing a charge of hav­ing sex­ual in­ter­course with a young per­son.

He was not asked to plead and was re­manded out of cus­tody to Oc­to­ber 7.

In a warned and cau­tioned state­ment, Moyo said he did not know his girl­friend’s age.

The pupil, whose name has been with­held for eth­i­cal rea­sons, also lives in Cow­dray Park sub­urb and is a Form Two pupil at a school in Mzi­likazi sub­urb.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Ms Sibekithemba Dube said the tout had been hav­ing a re­la­tion­ship with the pupil for some time.

Ms Dube said on Tues­day night, Moyo went to the ju­ve­nile’s home and asked to take her for a walk.

“On Septem­ber 27, 2016, at around 7PM, the ac­cused per­son went to the com­plainant’s place of res­i­dence and asked her to take a walk with him,” she said.

The girl agreed and they went to a bushy area near Ngozi Mine land­fill site where they had sex­ual in­ter­course.

Their se­cret al­legedly came out in the open when they met the girl’s un­cle on their way home.

“Af­ter the en­counter, the ac­cused per­son ac­com­pa­nied the com­plainant to her place of res­i­dence and on their way they came across the com­plainant’s un­cle who de­manded to know what was go­ing on,” said the pros­e­cu­tor.

The com­plainant con­fessed and the un­cle en­gaged the ju­ve­nile’s mother and they reported the mat­ter to the po­lice. — @andile_t­shuma
