Canaan Banana’s Son Loses Job In UK After S_xually Abusing Mental Patient

Zimbabwe’s former Prime Minister Canaan Banana’s son, Martin, has landed in hot water for taking advantage of an inpatient at a mental health hospital and kissed and hugged her on the grounds of the building, a court heard.

Martin Banana, 49, was an agency worker employed at Heatherwood Court, Pontypridd, when he engaged in s_xual activity with a girl who was above the legal age of consent but was vulnerable, reports Walesonline.

In a breach of trust, Banana used his position as her support worker to take advantage of her – telling her he liked her and that she “looked like an angel”.

The two exchanged messages about their relationship and matters came to a head when Banana approached his victim in the hospital, hugged her, and kissed her on the lips using tongues.

A sentencing hearing at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday heard the victim reported the incident to the hospital and Banana’s employment was subsequently terminated.

In his sentencing remarks, Judge Daniel Williams said: “She was extremely vulnerable and had an emotionally unstable personality disorder as a result of a traumatic background.

“The offence was committed in a place where there’s a particular need for safety, where our most vulnerable in society are looked after by a profession which is shamed by this sort of behaviour.”

Banana, of Sylvester Street, Liverpool, initially denied the offence but later pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a female with a mental disorder.

Defence barrister Alexander Greenwood said his client had been working in the health industry for almost 20 years in a career that is now lost to him and was now working for coronavirus track and trace services.

He admitted the defendant had “fallen far off the trust placed in him” but was now working with a foodbank as part of his church.

Banana was sentenced to a two-year community order and was ordered to carry out the Horizon programme, complete 25 days of a rehabilitation activity requirement, and to pay court costs of £1,500.

He will be required to sign the sex offenders’ register for 10 years
