A GWERU Polytechnic college student last week appeared before a city magistrate charged with aggravated indecent assault after he allegedly sodomised a six-year-old boy.

Phineas Sithole denied the charge when he appeared before regional magistrate, Morgan Nemadire on Friday.

He told the court that the boy’s father had falsely incriminated him because he was failing to pay the $10 he owed for maintenance work on his car.

Nemadire remanded Sithole in custody to the 10th of March for continuation of trial.

The state alleges that on the 18th September 2014 and at around mid-morning Sithole was at a house in Mambo suburb, Gweru, with the complainant.

The boy, who was left in the custody of other children at the house, was called by Sithole to get into his car where he allegedly forced him to lie on his stomach before covering his (complainant) mouth with a hand and sodomising him.

When the boy’s mother returned from church at around mid-day she found him sleeping in the kitchen and looking worried.

When she asked what was wrong him the boy first said he had a headache but, upon further probing, later on revealed that Sithole had sodomised him.

The case was reported to the police, leading to Sithole’s arrest.

A medical report revealed that the boy had been sodomised.
