Senior Resident Magistrate, Peter Kandulu sentenced Nkhonde on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to the defilement charge under Section 138 (1) of the Penal Code.

Prosecutor Sub-Inspector, Victor Nachuma had told the court that Nkhonde committed the offence on 16th July, 2015 in Chatha village in the district of Blantyre.

The court heard that on that fateful day, the accused- a neighbor to the victim- took advantage of the girl after her parents had left for their maize garden.

Nkhonde is said to have locked up the girl in his house and forcefully had unlawful carnal knowledge.

”When the girl’s parents returned home were surprised to see their daughter coming out of the accused’s house whilst in pain and was failing to walk properly, and later the accused also emerged from the house,” Sub-Inspector Nachuma told the court.

He added: ”They asked her what had happened and she said in vernacular , ‘ Nkhonde anandiyika nayo apa’ pointing at her private parts”.

The parents decided to take up the matter with Chilobwe Police after noticing some sperms on the girl’s private parts.

Medical report from Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) confirmed that the girl was defiled.

Nkhonde, who hails from Belewu village, T/A Maseya in Chikwawa district, confessed during police interrogation to have committed the offence.

In his mitigation, Nkhonde pleaded forgiveness while blaming “the devil” for his conduct.

However, Senior Resident Magistrate, Peter Kandulu did not buy his plea and ordered Nkhonde to serve a nine-year jail term, saying he doesn;t deserve any mercy for taking advantage of a vulnerable minor.

  32. koma says:

    Its not the devil. It started with athought and u put it in practice. Am sure this was the first time its only that this one was the 40th. Please check his hiv status too so that the girl can receive treatment just incase. This should be a clue to the police regarding the girl who was murdered a week ago. That culpit I suspect is very close within the village.

  33. zibwente says:
