Father physically removes son on top of his mother in a sexual intimacy stunt
THE 33-year-old woman who engaged in sexual intercourse with her teenage son on several occasions blamed evil spirits from her family for committing the Ã¢â‚¬Å“sinful actÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Shuvai Mudzingwa nee Kochi of Winnery Compound in Greenvale, Gweru and her son, Michael Mudzingwa (18) of the same address, however made a U-turn and pleaded not guilty to contravening Section 75 (2) (a) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform Act) Chapter 9:23, that is having sexual intercourse with a prohibited degree of relationship when they appeared yesterday before magistrate Ms Phathekile Msipa.
The two accused who are employed by Gollenberry Investments as gardeners were remanded in custody to 2 August for trial. Ms Msipa denied Shuvai and Michael bail on the grounds that the two resided in the same house and could thus engage again in sexual intercourse.
For the State, Ms Chipo Matshe said on 11 July at around 12 midnight, the accused Shuvai was sleeping on the same bed with her husband, Mr James Mudzingwa.
She said when she discovered that her husband was asleep and snoring, Shuvai sneaked out of bed and went to the other part of the same room, where her biological son, Michael, was sleeping in the same blankets with his brothers.
The room was partitioned by a curtain. Ms Matshe said the two engaged in sexual intercourse and were caught in the act when Mr Mudzingwa suddenly woke up and lit a candle.
The accused Michael is Mr Mudzingwa’s biological son. The court heard that Michael remained on top of his mother even after his father had caught him in the act. Ms Matshe said Mr Mudzingwa had to remove his son as he was still on top of his mother.
Ms Matshe said the two accused persons engaged in sexual intercourse again on Wednesday night at about the same time. In her warned and cautioned statement, Shuvai admitted to having engaged in sex with her son on four occasions.
She said she started engaging in sexual intercourse with her son after her husband, Mr Mudzingwa, had deserted her and indicated to her that he would not return.
Her son and co-accused, Michael, said in his warned and cautioned statement submitted in Shona that the alleged crime was committed in agreement by both parties, that is, mother and son.
“Baba vangu vakamuka ndiri pamusoro paamai vangu, . . . neChitatu takaita zvakare mukuwirirana kwedu,” said Michael. The trial of the two accused opens on 2 August at the same court.
