MDC-T president`s ralative Rayson Tsvangirai, a teacher charged for allegedly sleeping with 15 school girls in Beitbridge, has been released from custody because the Constitutional Court ruling that outlaws child marriages has not yet been gazetted.
Rayson Tsvangirai is a teacher at Vhembe Secondary School in Beitbridge.
After Mr. Tsvangirai’s release from custody, local parents whose children he allegedly slept with, impregnating some of them, approached the Beitbridge courts seeking to have him charged under the new law.
It is alleged Tsvangirai used his niece from the same school as a conduit to lure the unsuspecting schoolgirls. He would allegedly give them intoxicating drugs before sexually feasting on the hapless girls.
It is further alleged he exhibited ruthless and unusual sexual appetite throughout the night on his victims on separate occasions.
A prosecutor at Beitbridge court said:”We had to refer the matter back to the police because the new law is yet to be gazetted. As such, we have no statutory instrument provision for the issue.”
Local parents are now pushing for the prosecution and subsequent dismissal of Tsvangirai from the school.
The local community has also castigated the teacher’s alleged paedophilic behaviour calling for a stiff sentence to be passed on him.
