MASVINGO: A 14-year-old girl from Mucheke in Masvingo appeared at Masvingo Magistrate Courts after she allegedly invited a married tenant into the bathroom as she took a shower and asked him to f0ndle her breasts.

The girl who cannot be named since she is a minor allegedly called Onwell Tevedza (22), a lodger at her parents’ place and asked him to fondle her breasts.

 The incident is said to have happened on August 6, 2017 at around 8pm.

Tevedza allegedly complied with the minor’s request and fondled her before getting out of the bathroom. The matter surfaced when Tevedza had problems with his wife who superstitiously believed that the continuous crying of their baby was caused by her husband’s mischief.

 Trish Shokorai the wife demanded a confession from Tevedza to silence the crying baby. A pressured Tevedza eventually gave in and narrated the bathroom incident.

A misunderstanding arose between Tevedza and his wife after the confession. The noisy altercation attracted the landlord and his wife who then got to know about the issue.

The parents immediately alerted the Police and Tevedza was arrested for indecent assault.
