Rapist gets 12 years in prison

27

The Nkhatabay Magistrate Court has sentenced 22 year-old Patrick Kamwanja to 12 years imprisonment with hard labour for raping a 13 year-old girl.

The court heard that the victim was at her brother’s house when she received a message that she was wanted by the suspect at his house.

“When the victim went there, the suspect took her to his bedroom where he defiled her,” state prosecutor Evance Kamtukule said.

CourtThe incident was then reported to Police and medical examination conducted at St Peter’s Mission Hospital in Likoma revealed that the girl had been sexually abused.

In court, the suspect pleaded not guilty but he later admitted to have raped the girl after the state paraded four witnesses.

In mitigation, Kamwanja pleaded for leniency saying that he is young and it is his first time to commit an offence. He added that his family would suffer because he is the bread winner.

Prosecutor Kamtukule asked for a stiff punishment for Kamwanja so that other people should get a lesson.

Passing his judgement, first grade magistrate Billy Ngosi sentenced the rapist to 12 years imprisonment with hard labour.

The convict hails from Kachere Village, Traditional Authority Mkumpha in Likoma.
