A 17-YEAR-OLD Buhera school dropout who sodomised his 15-year-old brother was last week sentenced to receive three moderate strokes by a Rusape regional magistrate.

The teenager from Mapanzure Village in Chief Makumbe’s area, who was not represented, pleaded guilty when he appeared before Rusape regional magistrate Mr Livingstone Chipadza, who further sentenced him for two years which he wholly set aside for the next five years on condition of good behaviour.

The teenager will receive the strokes at Rusape Prison. The teenager told the court that he was an orphan who dropped out of school this year after failing to raise examination fees.

In sentencing the teenager, Mr Chipadza warned him against committing serious offences at a tender age and said aggravated indecent assault, commonly known as sodomy, was an abomination which led God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.

Representing the State was Rusape district prosecutor Mr Tirivanhu Mutyasira, who told the court that the juvenile took advantage of the fact that they were sharing the same room with the victim to abuse him.
