THE trial of a senior Lions Club International member following an allaged sex scandal with a minor has commenced at the Kwekwe Magistrate’s Court.
Sabelo Moyo (63) from Torwood appeared before Kwekwe Magistrate Miss Siamukheliswe Gumbo facing charges of molesting a minor.
It is the State’s case that on a date known by the court the accused offered the minor a lift at Redcliff shops around 18:00 in the evening.
Moyo, it has been revealed in court papers, was coming from a barber for a hair-cut.
It is alleged that the accused then went on to molest the minor by touching her thighs, sucked her breasts before he unzipped his trousers and ordered the complainant to touch his manhood before he caressed her privates.
The court further heard that Moyo then went on top of the complainant trying to plant a kiss without her approval which she resisted.
Moyo, however is denieng the allegations. He said in his defence that he only offered her a lift but the girl took advantage of the odd hours to lie since she knew that she would get into trouble with her parents at home.
“Your Worship, she is lying; she asked for a lift which l offered but she was afraid to go home because it was already late,” he said in his defence.
The complainant insisted that the accused molested her without her approval and she could not defend herself.
“He sucked my breasts without my approval and he wanted to plant a kiss after he went on top of me which l managed to resist. He even ordered me to touch his manhood,” the minor told the court.
Moyo is expected back in court on 16 November for the continuation of trial. – Zimbabwe Voice ■
