The men are suspected of sexually abusing a teen girl

Issah Rajabu defiled two girls aged 12 and 8 on 19 march, 2015 in Chilobwe Township.

He was on Monday convicted after he pleaded guilty to two counts of defilement under Section 138 (1) of the Penal Code.

Magistrate Mandala sentenced Rajabu to 15 years imprisonment with hard labour on first count and 18 years on second count.

The sentence is to run concurrently.

Rajabu is said to have locked the victims in his house, blindfolded them with cloths and started defiling them one after the other.

He gave each of them K200 and threatened to kill them if they reveal what happened to anyone.

Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital’s medical report tendered in court confirmed the victims were defiled.

Police Prosecutor, Sub-inspector Victor Nachuma said Rajabu deserved custodial sentence to deter would-be offenders.

In mitigation Rajabu pleaded for leniency as he is a family man with two children to look after.

Rajabu hails from Mutiyani village T/A Kelembo, Mangochi.

    Very bad indeed!

  18. Jasper Mtegha says:

    Sending them to jail is NOT enough. They should be castrated and then sent to jail. That way we will be sure that they will NEVER defile any innocent kid.
    The problem of sending them uncastrated to jail is that an idiot of a president can pardon them after serving 2 yrs; then they will be back defiling more kids. Castrate and jail is better.

    Is this sentence based on the magnitude of the act, in this case two girls or is because of the offense of defilement?

    zikomo a judge chifukwa cha chilungamo chanu. ameneyo awolele ku ndende komweko. ali ndende ya kuti ndikamuone ndikamuuze mau. mwamuchita bwino

  26. The village should be Kuntiyani not Mutiyana,T/A Kalembo in Balaka and not Mangochi.
    Big up to this magistrate for the good sentence.
    This magistrate should be included to handle cashgate cases,two police officers who stole K450,000.00 to a businessman in Chitipa and also two police officers from Chilipa Police Unit in Mangochi who are suspected to have swindled stolen money.
