Allegations facing the 16 are that on October 16, police officers received a tip-off from the public that there was a sex party at House Number 618 Monaghan Road, Tynwald South, Harare.
Police located the house and upon entry, they discovered that there were 16 people, both males and females, in one room.
The police officers further discovered that the other people in the room were naked while others were half naked.
The 16 were then questioned about their mission and they gave police unsatisfactory explanations, leading to their arrest.
