A 14-year-old girl has told the court that she had sexual intercourse with a 20-year-old vendor for two weeks.
She allegedly met the vendor in Bulawayo’s Central Business District and the two had consensual sex after he promised to marry her.
This was revealed when Tatenda Chida (20) of Mzilikazi suburb appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Lesego Ngwenya facing charges of having sexual intercourse with a minor.
The juvenile, whose name was not disclosed, told the court that;
I slept with Chida on the first day we met and he wanted sex every day, he also proposed to marry me.
I spent the day at the rank (Renkini Long Distance Bus Terminus) looking for bus fare and I met Chida who asked me where I was going and told him that I’m looking for money to go to Harare.
Meanwhile, Magistrate Ngwenya remanded Chida to June 14 for the continuation of trial.
