Women soccer coach up for indecent assault

Shadreck Mlauzi

ZIMBABWE’S national women football team coach, Shadreck Mlauzi, appeared before Harare magistrate yesterday facing charges of indecent assault.

Mlauzi (43) who was represented by Kossam Ncube appeared before magistrate Yeukai Dzuda who remanded him to today for bail application

His lawyer challenged the jurisdiction on the second count of indecent assault alleging that the offence is said to have occurred in South Africa.

“The jurisdiction of this matter is supposed to be in South Africa where it is alleged to have happened,” Ncube submitted.

However, the State represented by Lancelot Mutsokoti opposed the application saying the accused must be placed on remand on both counts.

“In this case we have a Zimbabwean accused person and Zimbabwean complainant,” Mutsokoti submitted.

lt is the State’s case that on September 26 and at around 7pm, the complainant who is not named to protect her identity was in camp at a lodge in Harare ahead of the Cosafa women soccer tournament recently held in South Africa.

lt is alleged that the complainant asked for a training programme and the accused invited her to his room. The State alleges that the complainant went to Mlaudzi’s hotel room where he forcibly grabbed her in an attempt to kiss her without her consent, but she refused.

On October 5, while at a training session in South Africa, the complainant told the accused that there were no resistance bands for use during training and was invited to his room to collect the money.

lt is alleged that at around 3pm, the complainant went to accused person’s room and was given US$20. Mlaudzi later demanded sex.
