A 65-YEAR-OLD Mberengwa woman has appeared in court facing charges of aggravated indecent sexual assault after she was allegedly caught bedding her 12-year-old grandson.
According to a State outline, during dusk on August 7, the woman from Mabika village under Chief Mapiravana persuaded her grandson to scratch her back while in her bedroom where she allegedly had a plan to “rape” the juvenile to quench her sex appetite.
When the grandson entered the hut, the woman locked the door and undressed herself before asking the boy to scratch her back.
The juvenile obliged, but during the process the woman allegedly undressed her grandson saying she wanted to verify if he was circumcised like all the Lemba boys.
The woman allegedly became intimate with the boy once.
She reportedly threatened to disown him if he told anyone about the abuse.
However, the boy told a neighbour about the abuse, leading to the woman’s arrest.
The woman, who was the boy’s guardian following the death of his parents, was remanded out of custody to August 18 for trial.
