FOR allegedly kidnapping and sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl, a Rusape man has landed in trouble and now faces jail for his vile actions.

Rusape police have arrested a 31 Year-old man who reportedly kidnapped a 14 year-old girl from Vhengere suburb and took her to a Harare night club where he sexually molested her.

Blessing Kanda, 31, of Mabvazuva in Rusape was hauled before Magistrate Tendai Mahwe, charged with kidnapping and aggravated indecent assault and was aised to apply for bail at the High court with his next court appearance scheduled for January 13.

It is the State case that, on or about December 28 this year, Kanda picked up the complainant somewhere in Vengere township in the small farming town in Manicaland under the pretext that he was taking her to a local shopping mall, Silverhall.

Court officials allege that, instead of driving to Silverhall shopping centre Kanda reportedly diverted and made for the capital Harare without the complainant’s consent.

Kanda is alleged to have taken the complainant to Barca night club in the city centre at which he is alleged to have fondled the juvenile’s breasts and torn her pants in the process.

Kanda was only stopped by the threat to report him to police before a well-wisher helped the victim file a report leading to the arrest of the accused.
