    Zvishavane – A grade seven pupil at Kandodo Primary School in Zvishavane has dropped out of school after her 20-year-old boyfriend asked for her hand in marriage.
    The two had been in a relationship for about two years since 2013.
    The matter came to light when the 20-year-old boyfriend Talent Koroni of Kandodo was brought to court for having sexual intercourse with a minor. Koroni told the court that he had offered to marry the girl.
    Last month Koroni lured the 14-year-old minor to his home and had consensual sexual intercourse. The matter came to light when the minor's friend caught the two making love.
    The witness reported the matter to her mother who took it to the complainant's mother and it was reported to Zvishavane Police station leading to the arrest of Koroni.
    Koroni was found guilty and slapped with a 12 months jail term by Magistrate Story Rushambwa. Four months were suspended on condition that Koroni will not commit a similar offence within the next five years so he will serve an effective eight months term.
