Boy (11) applies porn tricks on 9-year old boy


by Chris-Paul


an experiment learnt from watching pornographic movies led an 11-year old Katora Primary School pupil, Spitzkoppe in Erongo region to sodomise a 9-year old schoolmate.
The principal, Albertus Ganaseb, told the school authority last week that the 11-year old said he was experimenting with the boy after watching a pornographic movie.
“He admitted to us about the crime. He said he stole his father’s porno movies and watched them at a friend’s during the school holidays. So he was basically trying out what he had watched,” said Ganaseb. The sodomy, according to the school principal, happened over the weekends at around midnight when the superintendant in charge of the hostel and her surboninates had retired to bed.
“The victim said he was fast asleep and only woke up to see the other boy on top of him. He had called on his peers to witness what he was doing, telling them how he was enjoying himself,” said Ganaseb.
The next day, the principal added, the boy was too shy to report his ordeal to the school authority.
After enduring ridicules and teases by fellow pupils, according to the superintendent,  Yvonne Geises, on duty on the night of the sodomy, the complainant contacted his mother, (name withheld), via SMS but was too daunted to tell her exactly what his problem was.
“I got an SMS from my boy. When I called him back, he couldn’t really tell me anything. I got a feeling something was wrong, then I called his friend at the school who told me what had happened the previous night,” the mother said.
The complainant’s mother called the school principal that evening and informed him of what had transpired in the hostel the previous night and he promised to launch a probe in the matter first thing the next day.
“I called the boys to the office the next morning. This has never happened here before. The boy has a problem. I’m told he touched a girl’s buttocks on the bus from the holiday at the North,” said Ganaseb.
The perpetrator’s mother (name withheld), could not be reached for comment as several calls to her went unanswered. A case of sodomy, under CR O2/02/2012 has since been opened against the boy and he has since been suspended from the hostel until further notice.
“It’s actually a Prosecutor General’s Decision (PGD) case; cases that require the decision of the Prosecutor General to decide on whether to prosecute or not. It’s one of those things a lot of kids go through while growing up but in today’s world, it’s an offence,” said Warrant Officer, Keifus from the Usakos NamPol Station.
Ganaseb, however, said this situation will depict the school in a negative light. “He’s a threat to fellow pupils. He could have done that to the girls. The only reason he did not is because there is tight security at the girls’ hostel. So he resorted to taking advantage of the other kid because they all sleep in the same place,” explained Ganaseb.
The principal said the complainant’s parents have also asked to have their son transferred to another school to prevent further humiliation from fellow pupils.
