Sex assault on pupil earns 47 –year-old Malawi man 13 years jail term

Lilongwe Magistrate’s Court on Monday sentenced 47-year-old Hassan Laki to 13 years imprisonment with hard labour (IHL) for repeatedly defiling a 14-year-old primary school girl.

Lilongwe Police Station Spokesperson Inspector Kingsley Dandaula told Malawi News Agency (Mana) Wednesday that the convict had been defiling the girl from July to August 2015 when the news of his illicit behavior broke out.

“It is alleged that Laki who works as guard at Chipiku Shop in Nathenje met the girl who is a Standard 7 learner at Mwatibu Primary School in July 2015 when he offered  to be assisting her with money since they were both fasting.

“He gave her K200 the first time and told her to buy food, on another occasion he gave her K400 and continued giving her money until the money accumulated to K4,000. He eventually asked her to get into a relationship with him of which she refused,” said Dandaula.

The police spokesperson further said that because she had refused to go out with him, he started to demand his money back of which the girl could not give back and this prompted him to force her to be sleeping with him in return.

“He started sleeping with her from July to August 2015, later her relatives noticed that she was pregnant and reported the matter to Nathenje police,” he said.

She is said to have told police that Laki was responsible for the pregnancy prompting the law enforcers to arrest him on charges of defilement. He was convicted of the offense after police paraded several witnesses before Senior Resident Magistrate Chisomo Msokera.

In his mitigation, the convict pleaded for leniency saying he looks after his family and relatives, that he suffers from heart problems and that he is a first offender but State Prosecutor Sergeant Kefa Mwangonde asked the court to give him a stiffer sentence because the accused persons’ action was deplorable and that the Standard 7 girl was pregnant and traumatized.

In his ruling Magistrate Msokera concurred with the state that such cases were deplorable and rampant and went on to hand down the 13 years IHL to deter other would-be offenders.

Laki hails from M’deza village in the area of Traditional Authority Chadza in Lilongwe.-Mana

    Ithink povrty has played its role because this girl wouldn’t have been receiving money several times from a person who is not a relation at all. And she thought it was for free? this was a relationship that was created only that the girl didn’t know she would fall pregnant in the end. it unfortunate that some men take advantage of poverty to molest girls and this punishment is well deserved. komanso mwanayu ndalama amalandilazo osanena kwa makolo mpaka kuzagwidwa ndi mimba? I think she was enjoying the relationship not knowing the consequencies. All in aal its sad.

    Tsoka nkugwidwa koma ti ma 14 or 15 or 16 year olds, mmmnn, tikumakoma zedi more than enawa since the higher you climb, the cooler it becomes. Nde ana a masiku ano with their strange body structures, aiaiai – very inviting but trouble-giving (opweteketsa). Plus love for money nde eessshhh, disaster ku Dedza.
    Mlonda iwe pepa. Tizakupeza ku ndende, enafe pano tungodikira kugwidwa. Ine I will not throw a stone at you. Not even a grain of sand.
    You were just too stupid to chew the young girl without any sperm or virus neutraliser. Ndani sadziwa zomwe alonda amachita akalandira ndalama, kukwatira ma hule onse at kachasu drinking points? Mwamulakwiratu mwanayu and mwazilakwiranso nokha.

    Some strange yet interesting facts about a man called Dickson

    The d**k has a head but no brain . . .
    Therefore, you are just as foolish as a fool and idiotic as an idiot; if you let it think for you,
    Ultimately, you are in trouble.
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    Just as fire, the d**k is a very good servant but a very bad master . . .
    Therefore, if you let it lead you, it leads you into trouble and in deep sh*t
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    If you let it grow wings and stand in the air, it shows signs of having a heart of its own as it beats from left to right and up and down, in anger or excitement.
    But truth is, it is as heartless as a stone hence as cruel as a sword thus knows no mercy, even for innocent girls.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    So strange it is that a closer look at it; seems it has eyes of its own . . .
    But you will be stupid to believe that; coz the d**k is just as blind as a bat;
    And like an archaeologist, it knows no cave size – no matter how small.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    Simply put, let men use their brain more than their d**k coz if you let it think for you, you are in trouble just as this Mulonda here, who (using his d**k) even failed to reason that browsing on a plain-fertile ground of a 14-year old, can lead to pregnancy hence his arrest and jail term. Poor fella!

      I don’t seem to understand you

      You mean to say the man should not have been arrested or imprisoned so that he could take care of the pregnancy or the yet-to-be-born baby? How? By continuing to chew the girl in the process? Do you even understand the law? Its quite a wonder how we can develop as a country with such stupid and foolish minds as yours in our midst!

      Looking at your name, am not surprised how you reason. Believe me the names we give ourselves here are what we truly are. Iweyo nde mphaka weniweni. Bolanso bongololo akhoza kuganizako bwino ndithu. Mxiiiii!!!!
