Mbuzi za atsogoleri. Walking with zippers open all the times. With such people who prioritise sex to anything else, there is lillte wonder that the nation is under developed. In his mind moves words like gondolosi, circumcision, mkwapukwapu and many other. Stupid idiot. You must be prosecuted, sentences and rot in jail.

Pseudo code(the devil incarnate)

the girl was defiled 6 months ago and is currently carrying a 5 months baby meaning the councillor pounded her when she was 8 months pregnant, Nyasa reporters this ca never be defilement for the girl was already impregnated only that may be the councillor did it for some rituals if the story is true which is also doubtful


You mean the girl was “defiled” when she was 9 months pregnant? Don’t forget marriage age is 15 years according to the constitution. Kodi defilement mchani?

The girl or woman was already out of school, now carries a 5 month old baby, and the accused defiled her 6 months ago? The language used does not make sense, and the whole story is iincoherent e.g. it means she was “defiled” when 5 months pregnant. Unless it was rape and the woman is mentally unfit, a 16 year ild pregnant woman should know what sex is and what it’s consequences are and, therefore, is a consenting adult.
