A Glenview 2 Primary School teacher has appeared before a Harare magistrate facing charges of raping a 14 year old girl.
Surry Pride Mandinika, who is denying the charges, is facing two counts of rape.
The state represented by Mrs. Valerie Kativhu Ngoma alleges that on the first occasion, Mandinika who stays in the same neighbourhood with the complainant saw her coming from the shops and asked her to come to his house.
The teacher is alleged to have raped the minor before making threats to discourage her from reporting the matter.
It is further understood that the following day, Mandinika is also alleged to have called the complainant and raped her again.
The complainant told her friends and later reported the case to the police.
The accused has been remanded in custody and has been asked to apply for bail at the High Court.
