GIRL (8) LOCKED IN COLD ROOM, TORTURED
A ZENGEZA 7 Primary School pupil was on Wednesday beaten up and locked in a cold room by two butchery workers for allegedly offending them.
It is alleged that the two workers — Mar-tin Mubvakure and a lady only identified as Rue — who are employees at Hunda Butchery, tortured the girl and locked her in a cold room after she and her other friends had annoyed them and disturbed their business.
It is reported that Rue and Mubvakure’s actions angered the people when they discovered how they treated the grade three pupil and it brought business at Zengeza turn-off shops to a standstill.
Mubvakure admitted to some of the allegations from the people who gave an account of what happened, but he also tried to justify their action to punish the girl as he claimed they were affecting business.
“Whatever you heard from what the people are saying it’s true. “Though people are saying different narratives of what happened on Wednesday about these children who come and disturb our business with their silly behavior and acts of hooliganism.
It was important that we had to take some disciplinary measures. “These children have wild and irritating behavior. They can even throw stones and pour sand into our shop.
“You can imagine what would happen if they break the glasses on the counter. Our bosses would be mad at us for failing to control these young kids,” he said. “These children would also come and ask silly questions or asking for something that is unimaginable like mune matumbu edzvinyu here and they run away.
“Yes we locked her in the cold room, but not for long. I even threatened to cut her with a band saw machine just to scare her so that they cannot repeat their annoying behavior.
“It is also not their first time to do this. They always do that most times espe-cially the children from Shingai Primary School,” he added.
The girl’s father also gave an account of what happened to his daughter and he said the behavior by Hunda Butchery employees should not be tolerated. “I was at home when one of my friends’ daughters came and told us that my daughter had been locked in the cold room at Hunda Butchery.
“The news was very disturbing and that is when I opted to go and see what had transpired. I saw a crowd of people shouting and denigrating the behavior of the butchery workers.
“Fortunately, I found my child alive since the news I heard was disturbing. “As you have heard from the people that she was even kicked and they removed her shoes and beat her.
“My child also told me that they placed pens between her fingers and squeezed her hand to inflict pain on her. “And they then locked her in the cold room after putting her through such torture.
“I think they should have found another punishment. “I believe it was the first time my daughter and her friends committed such acts,” said Kamurai.
He, however, did not report the case to the police after they decided to settle the matter with the owner of the butchery.
“We did not report the case to the police. I do not have a bad relationship with the owner of the butchery. “She is someone that I respect and we do not want to kill our relationship over this matter,” he told H-Metro.
