Sheffield – A prolific Morgan Tsvangirai party official who is seen in numerous footage standing by the MDC leader, Jenatry “Chihota” Muranganwa, has been convicted of raping a 12 year old girl.
Chihota was yesterday slapped with a five(5) year jail term for grooming and then pleasuring himself on the innocent minor.
He is set to be deported from the United Kingdom soon after his release.
The first investigative story which first appeared on ZimEye.com last year, revealed how Chihota popularly known for a long period for his energetic singing at MDC-T party meetings, had an affair with a married woman, (name withheld) whose daughter he would soon attack for his gratification.
He even at one time booked a room at a local Premier Inn and was seen pulling the minor into the budget hotel for intimacy.
When contacted by ZimEye during an investigation soon after the hotel fracas, Chinota did not deny abusing the girl.
But he soon afterwards hired lawyers attempting to block the fangs of the law.
The truth however prevailed and he was arrested and then tried. The trial which was heard on Thursday in court room 9 under case number T20147806, returned a guilty verdict for the severe statutory rape and grooming. He was subsequently sentenced on Friday morning.
