Teacher accused of indecent assault


A 50-YEAR-OLD Chitungwiza male teacher who allegedly summoned a female student to his office where he hugged and kissed her and fondled her breast, appeared in court yesterday charged with indecent assault.


Cornelious Muradzi, a teacher at Genius College, however, denied the charge when he appeared before Chitungwiza magistrate Lazarus Murendo.

He was granted $50 bail and remanded to tomorrow for continuation of trial.

It is alleged that on February 5 at around 7:20am, the 17-year-old complainant was in class when Muradzi came to conduct a Shona lesson.
The court heard that Muradzi asked the complainant why she had failed to come to school the previous day. He then summoned her to his office so that they could discuss the issue.

Prosecutor Norman Koropi told the court that as they were in the office, the complainant was overcome with emotion while explaining herself and Muradzi allegedly drew closer, hugged and kissed her and fondled her breast in a purported bid to console her.

The complainant immediately stormed out of the office and informed a janitor at the college, leading to Muradzi’s arrest.
