A Gutu man who sexually assaulted his 14-year-old niece has been sentence to three year in prison.
Isaac Masvingise (34) from Matungamidze Village under Chief Mawere appeared before Magistrate Nyasha Vhitorini on Monday.
Prosecutor Agatha Gabriel told the court that on October 17 2013 in the afternoon the accused went to the juvenile’s homestead.
When he arrived at the house he noticed that the minor was alone with her young sister.
Masvingise decided to send away the young sister and he told her to go and gather some wild fruits (matamba).
When they were just the two in the room, he then fondled the juvenile’s breasts and then he took her hand and used it to caress his privates.
The juvenile reported the matter to his father and the uncle was arrested.
