MIDLANDS – A 20-year-old domestic worker from Gweru has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for sexually abusing her employer’s 8-year-old son and infecting him with a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Sitholokuhle Nyathi was convicted of two counts of aggravated indecent assault by Gweru regional magistrate Christopher Maturure. During her mitigation plea, Nyathi asked for a lenient sentence, stating that she was driven by a desire for sexual gratification.

The prosecution, led by Sibangani Dube, argued for a harsher penalty to deter potential offenders.

“The accused took advantage of the minor’s vulnerability and engaged in indecent assault. By engaging in unlawful and unprotected sexual intercourse with an 8-year-old minor, the accused breached the trust placed in her by her employers and abused her authority,” said Dube.

The court heard that Nyathi shared a room with the minor and had fondled his private parts before engaging in sexual intercourse. The matter came to light when the boy visited his aunt in Kwekwe and was taken to a local clinic for medical treatment. Tests revealed that the boy had contracted an STI, and he subsequently revealed that Nyathi had been sexually abusing him.

The victim’s aunt notified the boy’s mother, who made a police report leading to Nyathi’s arrest.
