74-year-old Sekuru proposes love to 9-year-old girl, pays her 1 Rand for sex

74-year-old Sekuru proposes love to 9-year-old girl, pays her 1 Rand for sex
An elderly man from Filabusi, aged 74, shocked the court when he claimed that he first paid 1 Rand to propose love to a 9-year-old girl before having sex with her.
Sekuru James Ndlovu who hails from Mathabisa village under Chief Maduna in Avoca, Filabusi, appeared before Filabusi magistrate Mzingaye Moyo facing three counts of rape.

Sekuru Ndlovu however told the magistrate that the two were madly in love because he had proposed love to the Grade 4 girl.

State counsel Smart Tafireyi told the court that on a date unknown to the State but between 15 and 23 December 2013, Sekuru Ndlovu would use very small amounts of money, either 2 Rand or less, to lure the young girl to his home or bush where he would allegedly rape her.

The State alleged that in the first incident, the accused gave the Grade 4 girl 1 Rand and raped her. The 74-year-old man then gave the girl 2 Rand in the second encounter before raping her again. It is alleged that Ndlovu also raped the minor for the third time and bought her silence with 2 Rand.

The matter came to light when the young girl revealed the abuse to her parents who then reported the matter to police leading to Sekuru Ndlovu's arrest.


Matabeleland South Regional Court magistrate advised the alleged rapist to apply for bail at the High Court after remanding him in custody to 10 January 2014.
