Malawi court sends to jail hubby for undressing wife in public

Machinga Second Grade Magistrate Court convicted and sentenced a 55 year old Austin Ligomeka of Zomba to five months imprisonment for assaulting and undressing his wife in public over clothes she claimed to receive from her cousin.

Prosecutor, sub Inspector, Rodrick Kamuona told the court  Tuesday that Ligomeka saw his wife aged 32 with new clothes which the wife claimed that she got from her cousin.

Unconvinced with the claim, Ligomeka started beating the wife and tore her clothes including her underwear.

Turning his wife into a circus, Ligomeka made sure that the wife stood naked before the public in the morning early this month, Kamuona told the court adding that he mobilized his children join the public to see their mother‘s nakedness.

The prosecutor said this was Gender Based Violence at its best and that this was a serious case worthy a custodial sentence.

He asked the court to give Ligomeka a stiffer penalty.

He pleaded guilty to the charges and in mitigation he asked the court to pass a lighter penalty because he cares for orphans.

Second Grade Magistrate Maxwell Boazi condemned Ligomeka’s action saying this was indeed Gender Based Violence.

He found LIgomeka guilty, convicted him and sentenced him to five months imprisonment without giving him option for fine.

Both Ligomeka and his wife comes from Jusu Two, Village in Traditional Authority Mlumbe in Zomba near Machinga.

    its pathetic for a man to undress his wife in public. I am sure those clothes did not come from her cousin, but maybe from her secret lover. Though this might be the case, no need to shame your wife on public. He would have been given a Hardee punishment and not mere 5 months.

      Anamuchita bwino mahule kuchuluka mdziko muno. The only bad thing was asking his kids to be part of the crowd otherwise i see no problem. Why do you think some of us are singke? We are fucking too many married women mpakana kumatipempha kuti tidziwameta mabvuzi. Why keep cattle when you are getting free milk?

    5 months is a joke. The man even called her children to see the mothers naked. Mother and children will never forget that. After serving a few months this evil man will come our laughing whilst the victim is scarred for life. No no.

  9. Nankumba boy says:

  15. the commenter says:

    the fact that she got the clothes from her cousin is totally false….

  16. kampeze says:

    5 months is just too little….The woman was humilitated in public, she has been psycologically affected.And then they sentence the man to only 5 months, this is equal to two months.

  17. Mtsiliza United says:
