Malawian man gets 14 years for raping a standard 1 learner

66

The Zomba first grade magistrate court in Malawi’s old capital city sentenced 36 year-old Biniwelo Sayenda to 14 years imprisonment with hard labour for defiling his seven year-old step-daughter.

The court heard that the convict in October this year went to the bedroom of the victim where he defiled her while her mother went to draw water at a nearby borehole.

The victim then met her aunt who noticed that she was having difficulties in walking and when questioned, the girl disclosed that her stepfather had defiled her.

CourtA medical report from Zomba Central Hospital revealed that the girl was indeed defiled though the accused pleaded not guilty in court.

Passing his judgement, magistrate Robert Khamisa slapped Sayenda with 14 years in prison saying his offence is a serious one.

Khamisa deplored the increase in defilement and rape cases in the country and said the sentence was meant to deter would-be offenders.

Sayenda hails from Malonje in the area of Traditional Authority Malemia in Zomba district.
