Man gets 14 years jail sentence for defilement of girl four times his age

Karonga Magistrate’s Court has sentenced a man to 14 years imprisonment for defiling a girl four times his age.

State prosecutor Wilfred Khuniwa told the court that in September the convict, aged 28, called the seven-year-old into his house where he defiled her.

In mitigation, the man asked for leniency, saying he was an orphan.

But senior resident magistrate Abdurrahman Issa Maulidi said the offence was a serious one; hence, he gave him 14 years in prison.

The girl is 7 and the man is 28. Therefore the defiler is the one who is four times the girl’s age and not the other way round! The reporter’s English requires polishing up!!!

An orphan at 28 years? Orphanhood applies only to children (under 18 years). Inuyo akulu siinu orphan yi.
