Chinese National Marries Underage Girl

Chinese National Marries Underage Girl

The ZRP is investigating a case where a family married off their 15-year-old daughter to a Chinese national, forcing her to drop out of school.

The girl is said to be from Ward 5, Chief Neuso in Sanyati district, Mashonaland West province.

Reports suggest that the victim (name withheld), was married off to the Chinese national and US$2 000 was paid to her parents as bride price on 26 November this year.

The Chinese national works as an engineer at Ringxin/Mambo Mine, the report further alleges.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident to NewsDay. He said:

As police, I can confirm that we have launched an investigation into the case. For now, we can’t comment any further despite the fact that we are still conducting investigations.

Police in Sanyati on Wednesday rescued the girl but her parents say the Chinese national is their son-in-law.

NewsDay reported sources as saying the Chinese nationals working at mines near Kadoma target young girls, mostly virgins, for marriage.

Poor families in the gold-rich area marry off their young daughters to Chinese men in an effort to make ends meet, one Tichaona Mapara observed.

The problem of child marriages is said to be rife in the three Mashonaland provinces.

Sexual misconduct with a minor is a crime even though you and your father did it but were never on the hook. After the whole Anna saga people in the country are now fighting against the scouges of child marriages and sexual misconduct with a minor (statutory rape) so this Chinese national must be on the hook for the crimes. You can't have sex with a girl aged below 16 and you can't marry a girl aged below 18.

Our laws are fighting nature. Nature vs Nurture. There is nothing harmful for a girl to marry @ 14. Let people choose what they want in life

THE CHINESE PARENTS-IN-LAW ARE TOO GREEDY. THEY KNEW THAT TRADITIONALLY NOVEMBER IS A BLACK MONTH. IT IS A MONTH OF BAD OMEN. NOTHING GOOD DONE IN NOVEMBER WILL END WELL. THEY SHOULD HAVE ADVISED THEIR CHINESE SON IN LAW ACCORDINGLY.

HAVING SAID THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT I SUPPORT CHILD MARRIAGES, NO. THE LAW MUST TAKE ITS FULL COURSE. IT IS STATUTORY RAPE TO SLEEP WITH A GIRL UNDER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS, LEGALLY MEANING THAT THE GIRL COULD HAVE CONSENTED TO HAVING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH THE CHINESE, STILL OUR LAW OUTLAWS IT.

STATUTORY RAPE IS SLEEPING WITH A GIRL UNDER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS WITH HER CONSENT. COMMON LAW RAPE IS SLEEPING WITH A GIRL UNDER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS OR ANY WOMAN OF WHATEVER AGE WITHOUT HER CONSENT.

I THINK WHAT I WANT TO TELL YOU NOW IS SHOCKING NEWS. ABOUT A MONTH AND HALF AGO, MINISTER OF JUSTICE, LEGAL AND PARLIAMENTARY AFFAIRS, ZIYAMBI ZIYAMBI, TOLD PARLIAMENT THAT GOVERNMENT INTENDS TO CHANGE OUR LAW TO ALLOW A GIRL BETWEEN THE AGE OF 16 YEARS, BUT BELOW THE AGE OF 18 YEARS TO HAVE SEX ONLY, BUT ILLEGAL TO BE MARRIED. FOOD FOR THOUGHT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. YES, IT IS COMING.

LET US GO BACK TO THAT POLITICAL PARTY'S FRIEND, I MEAN THE CHINESE. THE LAW MUST TAKE ITS COURSE. HE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, ARRESTED, PROSECUTED, CONVICTED AND SENTENCED IF THERE IS EVIDENCE.

THEIR MARRIAGE MUST BE DELARED NULL AND VOID. IF THE CHINESE GOES TO JAIL, THE GIRL MAY WAIT FOR HIM AND PROPERLY MARRY HIM AFTER HIS STINT IN JAIL, [ ROOM WITHOUT A WINDOW ].

[ WE AS PARENTS, LET US NOT BE SO GREEDY TO MARRY OUR UNDER 16 YEAR OLD CHILDREN NO MATTER HOW MUCH IS OFFERED AS BRIDE PRICE ].

YOURS SINCERELY
