Court Diary

A teenage girl who brought a rape charge to court  recently withdrew the matter and confessed to have framed the alleged rapist.

When it was time to give evidence, 18 -year- old Bangu Balayi instead surprised the court by asking to be   forgiven for wasting the court’s time.

She revealed that she had falsely accused her ex-boyfriend who is also the father of her two months old baby out of fear of what her mother could have done to her had she found out that she had voluntarily spent the night with the man on November 03 last year.

Tutume station commander,Vusumusi Jerome said that  the young mother had confessed to the  police before trial  that  the reason she falsely accused her ex-lover of rape was because she had overslept at the man’s house and therefore needed a reason  to avoid her mother’s wrath.

She further revealed that the accused, a 25- year -old nurse who was suspended from work pending trial, was  her boyfriend for one and a half years before the false rape accusations.
