A Harare man will rue the day he laid his hands on a 14-year-old HIV positive girl after he was arrested and charged for sleeping with an under age girl. The 32-year-old man pleaded guilty when he appeared before Mbare magistrate court yesterday, who remanded him in custody to Friday for sentence. He tested positive for HIV after a test was ordered by the court. He was not aware that the 14 years old girl was already positive because he believed that she was still a virgin.
Prosecutor Lawrence said on August 11 this year, the two went to Houghton Park in Harare at the accused brother’s place. It is understood that when they left Houghton Park, they proceeded to the accuseds house where he stays with his friend.
Upon arrival, the friend decided to sleep on the bed and the accused slept on a mattress on the floor with the minor. The accused allegedly had s*xual intercourse with the minor over three times before releasing her the next day.
The complainant proceeded to her sister’s house where she divulged what had happened, leading to his arrest.
