A 14-year-old Form Two pupil from Zvishavane has been arraigned in court for sodomising two minors aged five and six. The boy pleaded guilty when he appeared before Zvishavane magistrate Mr Archie Wochiunga facing two counts of indecent assault. In his mitigation statement, the minor told the court that he had seen the act on his brother’s phone and decided to imitate. On a different day, the teen approached the second complainant who was playing with his friends and asked to be accompanied to a nearby bush. On a different day, the teen fondled the second complainant’s private part before sodomising him. The two minors told their parents about the incidents and the matter was reported to Zvishavane ZRP, leading to the teen’s arrest. Mr Tinashe Maponde prosecuted
