State Prosecutor, Sub Inspector, Isaac Imedi  told the court  that Nhlane had been defiling the girl who is his cousin since September 2020 and that in November she became pregnant.

“Nhlane used to visit his uncle and most of the time’s he used to find the girl alone and took this advantage to be defiling  her,” said said Imedi.

Nhlane pleaded guilty to the charge and the court convicted him on his own plea,.

However in mitigation, he pleaded for leniency ,saying he is the first offender.

But the state prosecutor Imedi dismissed the mitigation factors instead prayed for stiffer custodial sentence for the convict to deter other would be offenders.

Magistrate Loness Gumbo agreed with the state and slapped Nhlane with seven years IHL.

Nhlane comes  from Amon Nhlane Village in the area of Traditional Authority Mzikuhola in Mzimba District.

Good slap of a sentence to you fool! Men should be aware that laws were changed to protect the minors. Don’t just see ( “chithupi ndi ma big boobs muli basi ndi wa mkulu uyu!”) the big bodies and start advancing on the children. There are so many ladies out there longing for men. Propose them to quench your libido than cutting short the future of our children.
