Story by (2) Nyore Madzianike;
An 11-year-old’s diary chronicling her daily events brought to light her sexual abuse at the hands of her parent’s maid after her mother came across it. The girl had written that their maid Tatenda Mudzimba was in the habit of kissing and fondling her breasts and privates. Tatenda was then arrested and taken to Harare magistrates’ court charged with indecent assault. The sexual abuse came to light on March 5 this year after the girl’s mother came across the diary. The mother then went on to lodge a complainant with the police leading to Tatenda’s arrest.
