According to her, she usually helps the accused’s mother with her household chores.

She said one day she went to help the accused’s mother when he asked that they have sex, which she accepted.

The thirteen years old girl said whenever the accused’s mother was not around, he would asked her to lock the house and take her into his mother’s room and have sexual affairs with her.

She said one of their neighbours, who was observing them, informed her (the victim) mother about the relationship, adding that her mother asked her about what she heard.

The girl said her mother took her to one Mamie Yealie, who confirmed that she has been deflowered by Mohamed.
