A TEENAGE maid has been nabbed on allegations of sexually assaulting her employer’s eight-year-old daughter on five occasions and in all this, threatening the minor with death if ever she revealed the incidents, a court heard.
Tamary Muringisi, 19, was not asked to plead to allegations of aggravated indecent assault when she appeared before Harare magistrate Barbra Mateko.
She was remanded in custody and was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
It is the State’s case that in the first encounter, Muringisi exploited the absence of adults at the house and forced her fingers into the minor’s rear.
She is further alleged to have forced the child to lick her skin, threatening to kill her with a knife if she revealed the abuse. It is also alleged that she would caress the minor’s privates without her consent and at one point, undressing and sitting on the minor’s stomach and private parts.
The matter reportedly came to light when the child urinated in blankets and upon being asked, she said she was dreaming about Muringisi making her urinate on her.
