A THIRTEEN-YEAR-OLD girl yesterday narrated in the Livingstone Magistrate’s Court how her 19-year-old lover of Kazungula defiled her twice.
She was testifying in a case in which Nicholas Muzamai of Makalanguzu village in Kazungula is charged with defilement.
Magistrate Benjamin Mwelwa is hearing the case.
It is alleged that Muzamai had unlawful carnal knowledge of a girl aged 13 on June 21, 2015 in Makalanguzu village.
Narrating the ordeal, the girl said she used to sell drinks at Kazungula border post when she met Muzamai, who proposed love to her.
“Muzamai asked me to be his girlfriend and I refused, but when he persisted, I accepted,” she testified.
She said after she started going out with Muzamai, he would always follow her at school.
The girl testified that Muzamai would always ask her for sex and that she would refuse.
The victim told the court Muzamai invited her to his place in May last year and they had sex.
She said one Sunday, she visited Muzamai’s place and they had sex again.
The victim said her mother asked her if she was involved in a love affair, which she denied.
“After I denied being in a love affair, my mother beat me up until I disclosed that I actually had been having sex,” she said.
The matter was then reported to Kazungula police post.
The trial continues.
