A 29-year-old bricklayer has been dragged to court for having annal sex with a seven-year-old girl.

When the matter came up before Lusaka magistrate Faidess Hamaundu yesterday, Teddy Siame pleaded not guilty to a charge of unnatural offence.

According to facts before court, the victim met her fate when she went to look for her mum at a bar in the company of her elder sibling in Lusaka’s Mazyopa compound.

The accused dragged the victim in an unfinished toilet near the rail line where he ordered her to undress and forced himself on her back.

This was after he gave the victim two coins which he grabbed back before taking advantage of her.
