  11. Mamuna says:

    According to my understanding, you can defile a child under the age of 13 (according to the Malawi constitution). I wonder if the state really want Gwaladi to be punished. Unless the charge is changed to sexual assault, Gwaladi will win this case. But if it is sexual assault, then there is no evidence because the sex seems to be agreed by both parties. It can’t even be rape!!
