Man Jailed 6 Months After Impregnating 14-year-old Girl

Man Jailed 6 Months After Impregnating 14-year-old Girl

A 25-year-old man from Cowdray Park in Bulawayo has been sentenced to 12 months in prison for having sexual relations with a minor that resulted in a pregnancy.

Hilson Tatenda impregnated a 14-year-old girl who was doing Form One at a local school.

Tatenda appeared before West Commonage magistrate Sibongile Marondedze last week facing charges of having sexual intercourse with a minor.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and said he was remorseful.

Magistrate Marondedze sentenced Tatenda to 12 months in prison but suspended six months for five years on condition he does not commit a similar offence.

Prosecuting, Samantha Gubede said Tatenda proposed love to the juvenile, who is a Form One pupil in September 2021 and she agreed.

The two had consensual sexual intercourse in the same month at Tatenda’s home.

The matter came to light after the teenager’s grandmother suspected that her grandchild was pregnant. She reported the matter to the police.

Tatenda was then arrested while the juvenile was taken to the hospital for a medical examination.

@Mdluli it's the future of the child which we are talking about and the baby maybe you don't need a son in law. He comes back from prison he is now jobless and should take care of your daughter and the child , were does he start from and these children have a good age difference that woman killed the future of our daughter if it was my daughter I should not have done that , yes it happened so what is the solution this was not rape mind you. we should think before we take some decisions , so was the pregnancy terminated

@Vhitori...... So if you become the minister of legal affairs are implying that people who impregnant minors would never be arrested.....? 🙄

Having **** with a minor is a crime, the law must take it's course. The legal age for consent is 16 years. Let's not support Child abuse.

that's why they say The law is blind, whether it's culturally or morally wrong or right ppl, if the law says it's a crime then it's a crime. I just wonder why some get 7 years and some 6 months. juju iriku Shanda full time.


**** kid 2 months ago

they take into consideration the nature of the case. in some cases, the mother reports it as rape. in this case, it wasn't reported as rape rather he was prosecuted for mainly impregnating the minor. also in other cases, the minor is forced by the parents to deny that it was consentual ****, which also isn't the case here.
so since no force was used, taking into consideration that it's a first offense, that he was remorseful and also maybe that the minor was large for her age the judge then suspended 5 years just incase. to the judge, this may have been a lapse in judgement on the man's part. he may not have known she was a minor.
