Figtree man impregnates minor

BULAWAYO - A Figtree man has been arrested for impregnating a minor.

Mike Mpande, 29, appeared before Bulawayo Magistrate Gladmore Mushove facing charges of having sexual intercourse with a minor.

He was remanded in custody to January 3 after failing to pay $20 bail.

It is alleged that during the course of 2005, the complainant’s mother passed away and she was put under the custody of her grandmother who stays in Figtree.

During her stay, she met up with the accused who proposed love to her.

Mpande started having sexual intercourse with the minor several times with her consent.

She did not tell anyone.

During the end of year 2012, the two were separated for a while since Mpande had moved to Norwood Resettlement.

In 2013, the girl moved to Ezihwabeni which is near the resettlement and the two met again.

The court heard that on an unknown date in the month of August, Mpande resumed having sexual intercourse with the complainant several times with her consent until November 12.

The matter came to light when it was discovered that complainant was pregnant and the girl revealed that Mpande was responsible.

The matter was reported to the police leading to his arrest.
