MyGokwe learnt of a dramatic scene which took place at Guruve Magistrate Court when a 40 year old landlord pleaded guilty for bedding a tenant’s 15 year old daughter

Trying to defend himself, Silos Jawo of Forester E, Mvurwi told the court in front of magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa that he did it as a way of comforting the minor

Your Worship, I bedded her once, I wanted to comfort her since she had confided in me that she was pregnant and her stepmother was always harassing her, chasing away potential suitors and blocking employment opportunities. I was however unaware that she was a minor.

The old man’s story could not fit to the minor’s story who adamantly claimed that Jawo was aware of her age since he once wished her a happy 15th birthday few weeks before the act.

Prosecutor Carson Kundiona alleged sometime in July the complainant was seen coming out of Jawo’s bedroom by his daughter and quizzed on her move she spilt the bean leading to the arrest of Jawo.

The case to be heard on the 9th of September
