Married woman jailed 9yrs for sexually molesting boy

HARARE - A Harare magistrate has jailed a married Chitungwiza woman who forced a 16-year-old boy to have sexual intercourse with her.

The 22-year-old Shelter Chimusaru will spend the next nine years behind bars for abusing the teenager.

Harare regional magistrate Sandra Mupindu, initially sentenced Chimusaru to 12 years in prison before suspending three years on condition of good behaviour within five years of her release.

Chimusaru shocked the court after revealing that she sexually abused the teenager on the pretext that she was initiating him into adulthood.

Her desire for sexual intercourse with the boy led to the minor’s illness, resulting in him revealing the abuse to his brother and mother.

Chimusaru, the court heard, started having sexual intercourse with the boy in August last year when he visited his mother at the farm on holiday.

The woman, who is married and has one child, called the boy to her house one day on the pretext that she wanted him to fix her DVD player.

Prosecutor Liberty Gono told the court that when the boy entered the house, Chimusaru locked the door after which she undressed and ordered the minor to have sexual intercourse with her.

According to State papers, the boy refused but Chimusaru threatened to kill him with a knife. She forcibly grabbed him, removed his trousers and forced him to have sexual intercourse with her.

After the initial encounter, Chimusaru continued sexually abusing the boy and threatening to kill him with a knife if he revealed the ordeal.

Each time she met the boy, Chimusaru would call the boy “my husband”.

The boy developed a swollen manhood and sought assistance from his elder brother who then questioned him, leading to Chimusaru’s arrest.

She was charged with indecent assault but she was convicted while denying the allegations. - Tendai Kamhungira
