An HIV positive Zimbabwean man has been jailed in the United Kingdom (UK) where he is a refuge, for having unprotected sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old school girl.
Cloud Chunga (47), has been in the UK since 2001, initially to study, and later applied as a refugee to remain in the country and his status is still unresolved.
It is reported that Chunga met the girl in passing, but some time later he contacted her online to embark on sexualised private conversations via a social media site.
They arranged to meet and the girl skipped school to see him in Leicester, still wearing her uniform.
He then took her to a flat in the Beaumont Leys area where they had unprotected sexual intercourse.
Chunga then gave her Belgian chocolate biscuits and some perfume, took photographs of her topless and of her in bed with him, which the police later found on his mobile phone.
Officers went to the victim’s home after being alerted about her unexplained absence from school and discovered what had happened.
Chunga pleaded guilty to sexual communication with a child under 16, sexual activity with a child, meeting her following grooming and taking indecent photographs of the girl, at the end of last year.
He was slapped with a 6-year jail sentence and is set to serve a minimum of two-thirds of the custodial term, before he could be considered for parole.
He was also placed on an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and will be on a sex offender register for life.
Meanwhile, the minor was reportedly traumatised by the incident especially before her HIV test result came out negative.
