ZIMBABWE – Privilege Chakoma assaulted the girl with the help of her sister Annah Chakoma after she told them that she had not consented to the escapade.
It said that the two women took the girl to Annah’s place of residence, whipped her with a belt before striking her with a cooking stick.
They also took US$300 that she had been saving since last year.
The victim sustained injuries and was treated at Harare Central Hospital.
According to the medical affidavit that was tendered in court as evidence, she sustained serious injuries, bites and scars on her right shoulder and left upper back.
However, the sisters denied both assault and theft charges when they appeared before Mbare magistrate Reward Kwenda.
They were remanded out of custody on free bail to February 2 for trial.
The State, led by Lawrence Gangarahwe, alleges that on January 3, Annah went to Privilege’s house and asked the girl why she had consented to sleep with her sister’s husband.
The girl told her that she had not consented, alleging that Privilege’s husband had forced her.
Anna then took a belt and whipped the 14 year old calling her a prostitute.
She then took her to her place in Budiriro and at around 10pm Privilege followed and they teamed up against her.
They kicked her and assaulted her with a cooking stick.
Then the pair took the money in her bag and sent her away.
The 14 year old lodged a complaint with the police leading to the sisters’ arrest.
