Zimbabwean Man In Botswana Prison For Bedding Minor

A 22-year-old Zimbabwean man is languishing in a Botswana remand prison following his arrest for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old schoolgirl.

The accused, Lovemore Chivaka is said to have bedded the juvenile in Semotswane village on an unknown date between October and December 4 last year.

Tonota Police Station commander, Oteng Ngada, indicated that the parents of the girl reported the matter after she returned home late from church. Ngada said:

When the parents interviewed the girl, they found out that she was in a relationship with the suspect and they reported the matter to the police. That is when the suspect was arrested.

Ngada further pleaded with men “to respect the rights” of children.

Francistown Magistrate Court charged Chivaka with the girl’s defilement, denied him bail saying he was an illegal immigrant and a flight risk and remanded him in custody to February 8.

Prosecutor Kenneth Edward told the court that investigations were at the initial stage adding that they were yet to record statements from witnesses and exhibits taken from the complainant were yet to be taken for forensic analysis.

Edward argued that Chivaka cannot be released since he is an illegal immigrant without a permanent place of abode hence a flight risk.
