Mighty Warriors coach in court for indecent assault

Story by Peter Chivhima, Courts Reporter

MIGHTY Warriors head coach, Shadreck Mlauzi has appeared in court facing charges of indecent assault after allegedly molesting a female member of the technical team.

The allegations emanate from an incident which occurred on the 26th of last month during the Mighty Warriors’ training camp in Harare.

The court heard that Mlauzi allegedly asked the complainant to kiss him on the lips in his room before he grabbed her shoulders and pulled her towards him in an attempt to kiss her without her consent, but she refused.

The Mighty Warriors head coach also stands accused of instructing the complainant to report to his room and massage him while the team was in South Africa for the COSAFA Women’s Championship.

It is the state’s case that the victim also turned down Mlauzi’s advances on another separate day.

It is further alleged that Mlauzi started harassing the complainant before she filed a complaint to the COSAFA Safeguarding Officer.

During his initial court appearance Mlauzi through his legal team tried to exonerate himself arguing that the presiding magistrate had no jurisdiction to preside over matters which occurred in another country.

The matter continues this Wednesday.
