13 year old boy narrates how teacher sodomised him
A 13 year-old boy from an Islamic College in Chipata has narrated how his 29-year-old teacher allegedly had anal sex with him against the order of nature on three consecutive days.
The boy recounted the ordeal before Chipata principal resident magistrate Paul Chisha.
In a fully packed court room, the minor who is a pupil and a boarder at the same college comes from Choma district but was coming from Lusaka’s John Howard Township at the time of the incidence recalled how his teacher alleged sodomised him on three occasions.
The visibly traumatized boy told magistrate Chisha that between September 1, last year and February 26, his teacher Malik Ashtaq (29)
took him to his house situated within the college premises at around 21 :30 hours at night and had anal sex with him.
The boy who kept on breaking down during the court sessionl said his teacher, a Zambian of Asian origin was teaching him Allah and Koran in Arabic Language. The teacher lured him to his house where he had anal sex with him.
The boy who kept on covering his face when narrating the ordeal told the court that the accused took him to his house and told him to undress and bend while holding his knees as he used his manhood to penetrate his anus.
The juvenile narrated the ordeal in a somber mood told the court that the accused wore a condom on all the three occasions, though the minor was not allowed to see the manhood of the accused.
When asked whether the act was painful, the accused answered in an affirmative manner though he said he did not cry or scream during act because the accused was very gentle.
He told the court that the accused sodomised him on three consecutive days and gave him a K50, 000 and told him not to reveal what transpired to anyone at the college.
The boy explained that after the act he had some difficulties to sit as he was experiencing some pains because he his anus was swollen due to the act.
He told the court that later he started limping because his left leg was also paining.
The Juvenile said it was at this point that he reported the matter to the college principal who then took him to a private clinic within Chipata where some urine and stool specimen samples were taken from him but still he was not told the results of the findings.
The boy was at one time told to demonstrate how he was made to bend and hold his kneel as the accused inserted his manhood in his anus,said he did not how long the ordeal lasted because he was psychologically traumatized during the act.
During examination,the accuse’s lawyer Edgar Mweetwa appealed to the court to allow both the minor and the accused stand close to each other and demonstrate how the act was done.
But State prosecute Aaron Tuntulika objected to the application and said the accused could not be allowed to stand next to the boy for fear of further grave psychological effects on the boy who was already traumatized from the time the incidence took place.
Magistrate Chisha granted the objection but only allowed the accused to step down from the dock to ascertain his height and that of the minor.
The accused is also being represented by another Chipata based lawyer senior counsel Bishop Sturbridge Chilambo.
Trail in the matter continues.
