On Thursday, February 7, a 40-year-old maid was sentenced to 25 years in prison for raping her employer’s 10-year-old son in Harare. It is known that the woman has deliberately infected a child with HIV.
The woman was brought before the Harare Court on two counts. She received a prison sentence for indecent assault with aggravating circumstances and deliberate HIV transmission. The maid has admitted her guilt.
As it has been reported earlier, in April last year, the maid and her employer’s minor son were sleeping in one bedroom. According to the judicial records, the maid went to the child’s bed, undressed and engaged in an unprotected sex with him. After a while, the boy was diagnosed with HIV.
