Malawi court sentences son 7 years jail term for raping own mother

The Balaka First Grade Magistrate Court in eastern Malawi has sentenced a 23 year old-man to seven years imprisonment with hard labour for raping his biological mother.

The convict Macdonald Kusala was arrested after he was caught red-handed raping his 42-year-old mother in her matrimonial house.

Police Prosecutor Inspector Isaac Mponela told the court that Kusala had unlawful sex with his biological mother without her consent at Khoswe village in Balaka district on 21st August, 2015.

“The suspect who was drunk undressed and raped his mother in her matrimonial house where he found her sleeping and was caught red-handed by his younger brother who reported the matter to the elders of the family before the victim reported the same to Balaka Police Station who arrested the suspect,” said Mponela.

The suspect pleaded guilty to the charge of rape which is contrary to section 133 of the Penal code.

In his submission before sentence, Inspector Mponela asked the court to consider giving the suspect a stiffer sentence considering the nature and seriousness of the offence which attracts the maximum sentence of death or life imprisonment.

But in his mitigation, Kusala asked for forgiveness saying that he is a first offender and that he raped his mother due to the influence of alcohol.

First Grade Magistrate Felix Mandala agreed with the Police that the suspect deserved a stiffer sentence because of the seriousness of the offence and much more, he did it to his own mother which is a taboo.

“His drunkenness cannot be an excuse” said Mandala, saying he wondered as to how the suspect managed to go to his mother’s house, undress her and raped her if he was relay intoxicated.

He therefore sentenced him to 84 months imprisonment with hard labour. He said he has given him such a sentence so that it should be a lesson to him and would be offenders.

Macdonald Kusala who is a second born in a family of six comes from Khoswe village, in the area of Senior Chief Nsamala in Balaka district.

    One key point that most readers are missing here is that the mother was also drunk. The kid took advantage of the mother’s blackout. Amayiwa nawonso anali atangochokera ku mowa ndipo anali ataledzera ndi kungofikira kugona paja. Mwana wafika nayenso uli mmutu kungofikira pambali pamene pagona amake. Kenako nzeru zachuluka basitu.

    av liked ur comment mdzukulu,there is no justice really for causing millions of pipo suffer and yet 2 only receive a 3-yr jail term while a small offence of mother- son sex (not rape) attracts 7 yrs,if it was rape the mother would shout for help,the brother of the offender only discovered them after their whispering caused by orgasm

  27. APM says:

    Sometimes these things are done pre arranged for a purpose . Kukhwima . Romours are all over our midst claiming some parents sleeping with their own daughters up to extent of bearing childrens, its all about kukhwima . These things they are there only that we don’t know, but God knows. If you investigate ,it will be dicovered that the mother knew of the arrangement. Let it be known to you all that kukhwima through this way with intent to get rich ,the price you pay for this is that you are not supposed to sleep with your matrimonial wife for the lest of your life. Ambiri achoncho mu malawi muno alimo . Panyapanu

  38. Tili Chenene says:

    The mother (according to the reporter) is just 42 years (not very old). And we don’t hear that she screamed. She didn’t but then brother to the “offender” discovered them on the very act.

    To me, if the reporter is true, the mother too is to blame. She was not raped. It nah oils haven been prearranged either by signs or normal arrangement. To be undressed and penetration is a too long a period to not scream.

    The “mother” has a problem too.

    Kukhwima basi!

  61. Lumbani gondwe says:

    Thats serious.

  62. Dr Wa Zitsamba sadya Nkhwani says:

    Why the mother did not shout for help whey she was getting undressed and penetrated by her son. Mark my work, this was on purpose, someone told the boy to fuck his mother so he can become rich. The same happened in our village when I was young. People know but did not give a shit then, all because the son then wanted his small glocery to grow. He ended up mad!!!! How can one sleep with his own mother and be ok? Lets work hard with our hands, hard work is a sure way to getting riches.

    Abomination!!! The whole area needs consencretion! What type of limbido is this? I think the mother is also to blame, what i know is if the woman is not willing, she should have pushed him away and screemed for help, but i didnt read anywhere in the article that she screemed until her younger son find them red handed, what a shame!

    This kid thought ya amake ndi yo zuna kwambiri? Bloody bustard.!! Akazi ali mbwe mbwe …why did he have to do this??? Mabhala ghelo onsewa… but also I concur with Mr Mdzukulu that the sentencing was irregular. Senzani got 3 yrs for making 16 million pple suffer. This one gets 7 yrs for putting his family to shame.

The truth is ufiti, kutamba, kukhwima. Iwe unayenda ku ng”anga, anakuuza ukagone ni amako, you knew amako sazachita maloza akowo. And then you thought to pretend you were drunk. Ur behavior, not fit for a homo sapien. Only pigs, goats, dogs, chickens, mabakha, atombolombo and all those 0.00001 microgram brain creatures do what u did.
