    CHIREDZI – A Triangle teenager who claimed to have been raped by a 29-year-old staffer in the President's Office will do …hours community service after she withdrew the case and confessed that she had lied.

    Magistrate Mhlanga convicted Nyoni for supplying false information to a public officer and sentenced her to 245 hours of community service which she will serve at Chiredzi Provincial Court. 
    Eddy Mbavarira prosecuted.
