He said after the encounter Ngandwe ordered him not to tell anyone about what had happened.
The minor told the court that he was however forced to disclose the incident to his parents five days later after noticing that he had developed sores on his private parts.
And the parents of the minor narrated that the boy was taken to the police station where a police medical report was issued which was later taken to Kapiri Mposhi District Hospital where the child was examined and diagnosed with an STD.
