A 14-year-old Marondera boy was allegedly murdered by a commercial sex worker after failing to pay for her services.
H-Metro reported a source as saying the juvenile had met the woman at a bar and took her home as her mother was away. Said the source:
This young man went to a nightclub where he met a lady whom he took home.
He took the lady to his house because his mother was not around, the young man couldn’t pay for the lady’s services, which then angered the lady.
When he then failed to pay, the lady hit the young man on the head and he died and upon realising that, the lady covered him with a blanket.
Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, confirmed the incident. He said:
We are investigating a case involving a 14-year-old juvenile who was found dead after allegedly engaging with a lady of the night while his mother was not around.
We are yet to get the circumstances as to what actually happened.
