A Harare and married woman, Shorai Jaricha, 22, appeared before the Harare Magistrate, Rumbidzai Mugwagwa yesterday for allegedly intentionally infecting a minor with a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI).
It is alleged that the accused unlawfully and intentionally infected Tashinga Runganga, 17, with an STI in 2018. It is also alleged that Runganga used to visit the accused at her house to talk. One day, when the husband of the accused was not around, the accused is alleged to have seduced the minor and they had sexual intercourse. This became a norm from that day forward for as long the accused’s husband was not around.
The minor is believed to have started discharging whitish fluids in January this year. He took medication, but, when he stopped, the issue reappeared. He then informed his mother and the matter was reported to the police leading to the arrest of Jaricha.
