Boy, 16, girl, 14, sneak out of prayer meeting to have sex, boy arrested

MEMBERS of a Zionist Church were left shocked after a 16-year-old boy sneaked out of an all-night prayer to have sex with a 14 year old girl congregant at the same venue in Jambezi outside Victoria Falls.

The boy and girl, names withheld, were part of the congregation that had gathered for an all-night prayer at Makala in Kanyambizi, Jambezi.

Victoria Falls magistrate Lindiwe Maphosa this week heard that the boy proposed love to the girl on October 1 last year and she accepted and the two went on to have sex the same night in one of the huts at the same homestead.

The boy was lucky to escape with a lesser charge of having sex with a young person thanks to his age and the fact that the girl had accepted his love proposal, when he appeared before court.

The magistrate postponed trial to February 27 and the boy was remanded in the custody of his parents.

Both the boy and girl reside at Munkuli Village under Chief Shana.

The girl is doing Grade 7 at Kanyambizi Primary School.

Allegations are that the boy led the girl to a hut where they had sex and were seen by his aunt.

“On October 1, 2016 the two were at an all-night prayer at Makala, Kanyambizi. During the night the boy proposed love to the girl and she accepted.

“At 3AM the same night the two left other members of the church and went to the boy’s hut where they had sex once. The matter came to light when the accused’s brother’s wife saw the two in the hut and told the girl’s aunt who then later reported the matter to the police,” said prosecutor Takunda Ndovorwi.

The girl was referred to St Patrick’s Hospital where it was confirmed that she had sex and the boy was arrested.
