Chinese Offers 10kg Of Gold To Suppress Investigation Into child Marriage - REPORT

Chinese Offers 10kg Of Gold To Suppress Investigation Into child Marriage - REPORT

One of the directors at a Chinese-owned mine, Rongxin /Mambo Mine, in Sanyati has reportedly offered 10 kilogrammes of gold as “compensation” to quash the investigation into a marriage between a Chinese engineer at the mine and a local underage girl.

According to a NewsDay report, the 15-year-old girl dropped out of school after she was married off to the Chinese engineer by her parents on 26 November 2021.

The engineer allegedly paid US$2 000 as the customary bride price to the girl’s parents.

The girl was in Form 3 at Tomdrayer Secondary School at the time she was forcefully married off to the Chinese man.

The girl is from Ward 5 under Chief Neuso, Sanyati District, in Mashonaland West province.

NewsDay reported sources as saying that one of the directors at the mine has offered to pay at least 10kg of gold worth US$570 000 for the case to be set aside. Said a source:

The director of the mine is one of the owner’s daughters. She gives directives from China.

She has said they want the case suppressed by any means possible.

The main reason is that the forced marriage suspect is a key engineer at the mine and operates the underground mining department.

They do not want to lose him by any chance and are doing everything to ensure he is not jailed for marrying the minor.

In December, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed that a Chinese mine engineer who works at Ringxin/Mambo Mine had been arrested for marrying a minor.

The engineer in question last week appeared before a Kadoma magistrate, where he was remanded out of custody.

This is Zimbabwe under the new dispensation. As a result the Chinese culprit is already out on bail and can skip the country at any time(officially futi). Even if he is sent to prison, he will be released ne presidential pardon. Ukuwo mwana akatorohwa lula kudhara saka zvakatodhakwa. So better take the gold and buy chikochikari mbudzi, mombe etc

Siyai mwana aroorwe apa. It's better than the alternative where these girls end up into prostitution. If the girl wasn't forced into marriage let it be. So munhu aku reporter it was coz of jealous yekuti mwana weumwe agara bhoo. They want to girl to go back to poverty thats their aim. And some politicians who don't even care about the girl want to use her to score points.

LET THE POLICE DO THE JOB.

IT MEANS THAT THOSE WITH CASH WILL ABUSE OF OUR GIRL CHILDREN.

IT'S UNFAIR TO PUT HIM OUT OF JAIL BECAUSE OF OUR GOLD FROM OUR LAND, NEVER.

LET HIM GO BACK TO THE COURTS AND FEEL THE ZIMBABWE LAWS.

WE DON'T CARE ABOUT HIS GRADE AT WORK.

WHY DIDN'T HE CALL HIS WIFE FROM CHINA.

SUCH A RESPECTED PERSON ACTING CHILDISH.

THAT GOLD BRIBERY IS A CASE AGAIN TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR.

NO MATTER HOW RICH, EDUCATED OR CLEVER HE IS, THE HUMAN RIGHTS PERSONNELS MUST THE SAME ACTION USED TO CASES LIKE THESE.

MEMORY MACHAYA'S HUSBAND IS BEHIND BARS OF THE SAME CASE OF MARRYING MINORS.

NO FAVOURS.
PUT HIM BEHIND BARS.

THE COMPANY WILL LOOK FOR ANOTHER LEADER.

THEY WANT TO FAVOR HIM BECAUSE OF EDUCATION AND RANK, NO WAYS.
WE MUSTN'T EXPLOIT OUR CHILDREN'S RIGHTS

AMEN

WE ONCE DISCUSSED THIS UNDER AGE MARRIAGE ISSUE WHERE I SAID IN TERMS OF ZIMBABWEAN LAWS THE CHINESE COMMITTED A CRIME AND MUST ANSWER FOR IT. THIS OFFENCE IS IN MOST CASES PUNISHABLE BY A PRISON SENTENCE.

TODAY LET US EXAMINE THE BRIBE OF 10 KG GOLD. IF IT REALLY HAPPENED WHOEVER OFFERED THE GOLD COMMITTED THE OFFENCE OF BRIBE OR DEFEATING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE.

BUT THIS CHAT LEFT ESSENTIALS. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE DIRECTOR WHO ATTEMPTED TO BRIBE AND WHO WAS THE TARGET OF THE BRIBE ?

ZR POLICE MUST FOLLOW UP THIS CASE AND FIND OUT IF IT IS TRUE AND IT IS TRUE THAT DIRECTOR MUST BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE COURTS.

GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN SUGAR DADDIES SALIVATED (VAIRWERWA RUTE) FOR SOME SWEET SIXTEENS.

YOURS SINCERELY

@justas and @william

i respect you always guys but let the truth prevail here!

hazvisi kushanda zvechimu temo chenyu chekuti hee 18yrs in as much as i also wish it works, how can,we say mwana ngaa rohwe sombonyo bust asa roorwa? ko akanzwa kuda hake kuirohwa every morning before tea, maskati before and after lunch manheru 7 times zvinga buda hr pamva pane vabereki?

personally i think chinhu chinonzi KUNGODA must not be,limited to,anything because kunzi ndipoo woti ok zvakango naka pasina hondo. i think it must be a case when,it is the girl who reports and when,the girl wants to report but maparents oramba. Or when,the girl is forced to marry by the parents

zvichaka daro i think maCOURTS edu ano fana kuva independent even from some laid down,guidelines, zvokuti ano,nyatso vhunza mwana kuti wakanga wada hr irregardless of her age, kana mwana akati hongu then yapera iyo

bcoz vana vedu vashata veduwee vane kamwe kaspirit keku explorer chaiko vanotoku tarisa zvekuti uri zibenzi kana usiri kundidawo ini ndichida LET'S BE HONEST
