Gweru- A Mkoba 3 High form 1 pupil was sentenced to a rattan cane after he sodomised three minors from the neighbourhood and bought their silence with biscuits.
The accused (name withdrawn) was sentenced to receive three whips after he pleaded guilty to the act and was charged with aggravated indecent assault by Magistrate Phathekile Msipa.
According to state papers sometime in November last year the teenager went to his neighbour’s house to watch cartoons.
Whilst watching and playing with his neighbour’s kids, the minor told the first complainant (9) that he wanted to have anal sex with him and his two brothers respectively but the older brother refused.
The accused person seduced the complainant with vanilla biscuits and later agreed to the request.
The accused went on to have anal with the 9 year old brother on different occasions while the other two brothers were watching.
The minor also went on to sodomise two other younger siblings who later on narrated the incident to their mother leading to the arrest of the accused.
Msipa said the abominable act calls for a stiff sentence hence forth since the accused is still in school he will only be canned
