DEAF AND DUMB BOY, 15, RAPES HIV POSITIVE GIRLS AGED 11 &15
A deaf and dumb boy, 15, at Boyeyi Primary Boarding School in Maun has been accused of molesting two HIV positive deaf and dumb girls.
Despite the Maun Council Administration Authority (MAA) efforts to sweep the sex scandal under the carpet, Voice investigations have unearthed information indicating that one of the abused deaf girls aged 11 has reported the boy for rape to the school authorities.
Contacted for a comment, the boarding school matron, Tshebo Sebusang confirmed the incident but refused to elaborate further. He referred all questions to Assistant Council Secretary, Masiela Mandozi.
Confronted with the allegations, Mandozi said the incident happened but refused to give details. “I can confirm that there is a case of that nature but I cannot comment further on it until I get written details about it from the school,” he said.
The School Head who only identified himself as Mr. Taolo refused to cooperate with this reporter.
He refused to provide the names of the parents of the children involved. When further asked to at least help with names of PTA members who could assist in the matter, he said; “I don’t know PTA members, their numbers or where they stay, I am sorry I cannot help you.”
Boyei Primary school is a boarding facility for children with disability.
Neither the school nor Mandozi had seen the need to inform both the parents of the two girls and the boy about the incident.
Meanwhile reliable sources within the MAA have revealed that only the boy’s mother was told that her son needed to be removed from the boarding facilities without telling her that the reason was because he had sex with two girls who were under ARV therapy aged 11 and 15 respectively.
The Voice has it on good record that the two girls have not been counselled either despite the younger one’s queries.
Efforts to follow the boy’s parents to Habu where he comes from did not bear fruit as the village social worker contacted could not help.
