BUHERA – A man from Guvheya village under Chief Chitsunge in Buhera was last week jailed for 2 years after having a sexual affair with a Grade 7 pupil.
Isaac Mupandawana appeared before Murambinda Magistrate Dennis Mangosi.
It is the state case that sometime in April this year Mupandawana proposed to the 12 year juvenile who is a pupil at St Benards Primary School and she accepted. The state alleges that the juvenile later visited Mupandawana`s homestead and found him alone after his wife had gone to a wedding. He took her to his bedroom where he fondled her breasts and the two agreed to have sex. On 8 May the juvenile was sent to look for beasts in the grazing land but she went to Mupandawana`s homestead where the two had sex. The matter came to light after she told her uncle Thomas Tsanga leading to Mupandawana`s arrest.
Magistrate Mangosi convicted Mupandawana on both counts and sentenced him to 24 months in prison.
