As this was ongoing sisi Vee spoke to Princess Mabhikwa who is said to be one of the students to have been taken advantage of by the school headmaster.She claimed to be 23 years old despite receiving information that she is in form 3 .This did not come as a surprise to sisi Vee who knows in and out how ‘victims’ of abuse can protect the perpetrators for various reasons which include fear .
There are more questions than answers in the conversation.Princess had this to say.

[08/11 1:28 pm] Sisi Vee: Thank you very much for your response Princess. Greatly appreciated.So you are saying bye without clarifying to me the correct information ? Really ? You could have sent me proof of your age .
I am not who you are thinking I am.I had come to help you in case you needed help .However ,at least you
know the headmaster Nathaniel Khoza which is a good starting point for investigations .
I have also talked to inspector Ngeta and some people are going to meet him in case you will be contacted by the police.
If you feel you might need my help in future please feel free to let me know.xx
However , with news that the Girl Child Foundation has stepped in to assist this is very good news not only for sisi Vee but also for all fellow Zimbabweans who are against sexual abuse of vulnerable school children .Schools should be safe places for learning and not unsafe places for pervets to sexually abuse children
