ABOUT 20 teenagers were recently busted at a house in Bulawayo’s Hillside suburb where they were allegedly conducting a vuzu party in serious violation of the coronavirus lockdown regulations.
There were strong indications that the teenagers allegedly indulged in a sex orgy after bottles of liquor and used condoms were found strewn all over the house.
A source who claimed to have intimate details of the wild sex party disclosed to B-Metro that some of the teenagers were high on drugs.
“It was a free sex-for-all and some did not even bother to use protection. Some even had the guts of indulging in sex without protection as they were drunk and wanted to dust off boredom of being lockdown at home while some even recorded the action,” said a privy source.
Although Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube said the matter was never reported to the police, a source insisted that a fortnight ago police officers from Hillside Police Station were called to break up the invite-only vuzu party where teenagers were found enjoying despite regulations that demand people to stay at home to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
It is reported that police raided the house after a resident raised alarm and informed them of the wild sex party.
“About 20 teenagers were busted at the party and following their arrest, their parents flocked to Hillside Police Station to bail them out.
“Fearing that their children were going to appear in court facing charges of criminal nuisance, public drinking and violation of Covid-19 prevention regulations, the parents allegedly agreed to pay admission of guilt fines leading to the release of the teenagers.
“The parents agreed to pay after some of the police officers sounded alarm that their children were going to be subjected to mandatory testing for Covid-19 as punishment for defying State guidance to practise social distancing and also to ascertain whether all of them had no coronavirus,” said the source.
The source further said if they had agreed to have their children tested, it meant that if one of them tested positive, all the teenagers who attended the party were going to be quarantined together with their families.
Teenagers in Bulawayo are known to organise drugs and alcohol-fuelled parties on the first weekend at the close of the school term and the last weekend before a new term.
The get-togethers parties often lead to unprotected sex and anti-social behaviour.
