Grandpa baits minors with $0,20

HARARE - A 70-year-old man from Waterfalls in Harare allegedly raped two 12-year-olds after luring them to a bush with 20 cents each and ended up infecting the other with a sexually transmitted infection.

Jeremiah Masimo, 70, of Blackfordy Farm Waterfalls in Harare appeared before magistrate Elijah Makomo, charged with rape.

He was remanded in custody and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.

Prosecutor Sabastian Mutizirwa alleged that on an unknown date towards the end of last year, Masimo gave the two minors 40 cents to share.

After that, Masimo began fondling the minors’ breasts one after the other.

The court heard that when the children returned to their homes they did not tell anyone about the incident.

On another date, Masimo followed the juveniles to a bush where they were relieving themselves and gave them a dollar to share.

Masimo allegedly fondled the girls’ breasts again but they still did not reveal the ordeal.

It was further alleged that on another date when the minors had gone to relieve themselves in a bush, Masimo followed again and offered $10 but told the children to share four dollars each and give him the change.

After that, Masimo then demanded to have sexual intercourse with the minors but they refused.

The court heard that he ordered the girls to follow him into a secluded area where he forced them to lie on the ground before removing their dresses and underwear.

Masimo then took turns to have sex with the minors while the other one watched.

After the act he threatened to kill the children if they spilled the beans.

The matter came to light after one of the complainants developed a rash on her privates and was sent for medical examinations.

It was discovered that she had contracted a sexually transmitted infection and she opened up about the rape.
