MUTARE-A married Chikanga barber (18) has been sentenced to 10 months in jail after he was found guilty of having sexual intercourse with a minor.

Laston Mutasa (18) was convicted by Mutare Magistrate Perseverance Makala. His sentence was commuted to 175 hours of community service at Chikanga Police Station.

Mutasa had consensual sexual intercourse with the minor (name withheld) several times from September 2022-January 2023. The minor is doing form 1 at a local school in Mutare .

The court heard that Mutasa who is a barber at Chikomo Bus Stop in Chikanga proposed love to the minor in December 2021 and two began dating. They then began having sexual intercourse in September last year. 

It is alleged that the two would meet at the barber shop at 5 pm when Mutasa closed shop.

The matter came to light on January 4, this year after the minor did not sleep at home and spend the night at the barber shop.  Her mother quizzed her and she told her that she was dating Mutasa and had spent the night at his barber shop. 

A Police report was filed at Chikanga Police Station leading to the arrest of Mutasa.
