The Manica Post - - Local News - Love­more Kadzura Rusape Cor­re­spon­dent

A RUSAPE man who al­legedly am­bushed two sib­lings on their way from school and sodomised them be­fore forc­ing them into oral in­ter­course has been jailed for 30 years for the heinous of­fences.

Ti­noziya Mu­jere (37), of York­shire 7C, Head­lands, who was not rep­re­sented, was con­victed on his own plea of guilty to the charges.

He was fac­ing three counts of ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault com­monly known as sodomy.

Mu­jere told Rusape re­gional mag­is­trate Mr Liv­ing­stone Chipadza that he com­mit­ted the of­fence be­cause he was sex starved.

Mr Chipadza set aside five years on con­di­tion of good be­hav­iour.

Rusape district pros­e­cu­tor Mr Tiri­vanhu Mutyasira told the court Mu­jere am­bushed the de­fence­less nine year old boy and his ju­ve­nile sis­ter be­fore abus­ing them in a drainage a few me­ters from the Harare-Mutare high­way.

“On Jan­uary 22, 2018 at around 1700hrs the ac­cused per­son was at York­shire Sec­ondary School turnoff when he saw the boy and his sis­ter on their way from school. He then held their hands and dragged them to a drainage way, about 30 me­ters away from Harare-Mutare road on the pre­text that he wanted to show them some­thing that was com­ing out there.

“When they were in the drainage way, Mu­jere went on to sodomise the nine year old boy. Mu­jere also had oral in­ter­course with the five year old girl in the drain.

“On the same day the sib­lings re­ported the case to their mother who the fol­low­ing day re­ported the mat­ter to the po­lice lead­ing to the ar­rest of Mu­jere,” said Mr Mutyasira.
