Married man sexually abused boy, jailed five years in Malawi

A 24 year old married man Budala Kamphambale has started serving a five year prison sentence after being convicted with hard labour (IHL) for having forced anal sex with a minor boy .

Police Prosecutor Inspector Wills Asibu told Nkhunga Second Grade Magistrate Court that in December 2014 Kamphambale had been taking a 12 year old boy (name withheld) to hidden places where he was having sex with him through the anus.

He explained that the convict forced himself into the boy in a bathroom then in the bush.

“The accused was threatening the boy that he would deal with him accordingly if he dared revealing the ordeal to anyone. However, the boy revealed the dirty secret to his grandmother after severe pains he felt in his anus,” said the Police Officer.

Although medical examination at Dwambazi Health Centre indicated that the boy had sustained bruises amounting to injury, the Kamphambale pleaded not guilty.

In mitigation, the convict pleaded before Magistrate Rex Msolo for a lenient punishment citing huge family obligations as a reason behind the appeal.

Police Prosecutor pleaded with the court to give stiffer punishment to the convict indicating that cases of having sex with minors are becoming rampant in the area due to misconception of gay rights which is a new phenomenon.

When passing the sentence Magistrate Msolo said the courts in the country are overwhelmed with the number of sexual cases of having sex with minors which are taking place on daily basis in various parts of the country.

“I therefore sentence Budala Kamphambale to 60 months IHL so that the-would-be offenders learn from the same,” said the second grade magistrate.

The accused hails from Kamphambale Village, Traditional Authority Kafuzira in Nkhotakota.

  3. JUSTICE says:

    This is ridiculousness at. Its peak, the man is a pedophile, rapist, and he is also in violation of the anti-homosexual laws in the penal code. You might as well put out an advert saying rape and pedophelia are tolerrated in malawi. What is five years out of a Mans life when he has traumatised a child and killed his innocence. Malawian courts get more incompetent per day. Women and children are raped almost every day and all you care about is how much politicians have in their bank account and how they got their money. Horse shit!!!

    Too lenient the prosecution should appeal against this sentence.

  10. Kondwani says:

    This is bullshit … every person’s anus is naturally bruised. How did Budala’s dick cause the bruising on this boy’s anus? The anal skin shud have been completely torn apart and blood stains been noted.

    Raping a minor should attract a minimum of life in prison or 20 years IHL. Akakumsna ndi mbonga akakafika.

    Please adjust the sentence up to anout 8 year. Too many pedophiles of married men in Malawi. Actually the best punishmemt is to chop off the manhood then give him the 60 months… There are so many easy Hlomwe, Sena and lakeshore girls to play with if need be.

  31. Peter Nkosi says:

    Having written the headline as it did, this story will get picked up by demented, foreign activists for homosexual rights, and used to unfairly trash Malawi. The conviction itself is shameful enough, so could NT correct the splg erir on the second line – you know, the bit about the “annual sex”. We don’t want the foreigners to think that we cant spel.

  32. Mtola Kamdonyo says:

    i just cant understand this man why doing this yet he is married.All the girls and women that are in Malawi but annal sex? shameo

  35. Likoma Economist says:

    Two consenting adults convicted of sodomy get 14 yrs with hard labour. An adult male rapes or sodomise an innocent minor, he gets 5 yrs. I do not understand our learned brothers! What kind of justice is this?

  36. zte says:

    our malawian courts are pathetic. …. always the reason for sentencing is to warn would be offenders. … but this would be offenders are usually no near to this info….. fuckd up jackasses
