A 26-year-old female guard at a local school in Zimbabwe is facing four counts of indecent assault after she allegedly pulled student’s privates.
Choice Muzeti who is a guard at Grasham Primary school in Zvishavane appeared before Magistrate Shepherd Munjanja and pleaded not guilty to all four counts.
The court heard that on March 12, Muzeti who was on duty at the school premises met the first complainant, in the company of other pupils. She called the first complainant to the toilet saying she wanted to check on something.
Upon entering the toilet, Muzeti instructed the pupil to remove her pants before stretching her labia saying it was mandatory for every woman to do so.
While she performed the “act”, on the complainant, another pupil entered the toilet with the intention of relieving herself.
Muzeti instructed the second pupil to open her legs so she could check her labia. She also ordered the second complainant to lie down and she started stretching her labia.
Another pupil entered the toilet, and Muzeti also instructed her to lie down. She also performed the same act saying every woman was obliged to have elongated labia.
Muzeti then stood by the toilet door and called another pupil who was passing by. She also instructed her to lie down and performed the same act.
After their “sessions”, the four pupils narrated their ordeal to their teachers. The matter was reported to the police leading to Muzeti’s arrest.
She was remanded out of custody to April 12 for full trial.
