Man demands $10 000 for abused daughter


A BULAWAYO man allegedly tried to extort $10 000 from his roommate after accusing him of fondling his 10-year-old daughter, it has emerged.


Vanisha Brown (33) was not asked to plead to an extortion charge when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Merlyn Mutshina.

The magistrate granted him $100 and remanded him to July 17 for trial.

The court heard that Brown, of Kelvin North Road, Saursetown, was at some point staying at the complainant, Luke Green’s home in Douglasdale in Bulawayo for two years.

It is alleged that during the period when they stayed together, Brown started accusing Green (53) of having fondled his 10-year-old daughter’s breasts and private parts.

The accused later moved out of the house and during the period June 25 and June 28, Brown allegedly demanded $10 000 from Green, so he will not report the abuse case to the police.

Green made a report to the police leading to Brown’s arrest.
