Bindura, (New Ziana) – An opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party official has appeared in court in Bindura, accused of indecent assault of his 18-year old daughter after he allegedly physically inspected her virginity.
The State, represented by Patience Chair, told the court on Tuesday that MDC Mashonaland Central provincial spokesperson Saymore Mhene allegedly sneaked into the bedroom of his biological daughter, Mandivavarira, at around midnight in August last year and pulled her pants aside while she slept, and inserted his fingers into her private parts to inspect her virginity.
The daughter, who was sleeping with two other siblings, was allegedly awakened by the inspection, and asked her father what he was doing.
Chair told the court that, upon being discovered and confronted, Mhene allegedly just walked away from his daughter.
“She asked the accused what he was doing but he walked away without answering her,” Chair told the court.
Bindura magistrate Moreblessing Makate remanded Mhene out on $500 bail to October 1st.
