Man who married 14 year-old girl jailed for rape

186

The Ntchisi first grade magistrate court has sentenced an 18 year-old man to six years imprisonment with hard labour for raping a 14 year-old girl.

The court heard that the convict raped the 14 year-old girl at Mdzuche village T/A Chilooko in the district.

CourtAccording to police prosecutor Fred Luhanga, the convict, Willard Paul, went to the girl’s village and took her as his third wife without the consent of the girl’s parents.

But after two weeks  the community policing members  were informed about the issue and they took the girl back to her parent’s house.

In mitigation the convict told the court to exercise lenience when passing the sentence as he has a sick mother at home in need of his attention.

But first grade magistrate Dorothy Kalua said Paul deserved a custodial punishment to deter other would be offenders.

She sentenced the convict to six years imprisonment with hard labour for difilement, an offence contrary to section 138 of the penal code.

Paul hails from Dzutche village T/A Chilooko in Ntchisi district.

  4. Sometimes when commenting, we need to have constructive arguments. Otherwise we might end up showing that we are not conversant with our own laws that govern our country. If you go to marriage act, you will find that a boy or a girl should reach 18yrs when s/he is capable of entering into marriage. Any age less than 18yrs is taken as not mature enough to make decision own his own.

  10. Can some one tell me the difference between Rape and Marriage? Is he a man or a boy? I understand the guy is 18 years old and he has already 2 wives plus that girl being a third wife, does this make sense? How old was he the time he married first wife? . The Malawi I know someone marries under marriage age gets 6 years other stealing Millions of Kwachas or Dollars and those found with human parts or killing albino gets less than 5 years . Really what is going on in our country?

  11. Hahaha even if its protection of a girl child, 14 against 18, and 18 is a male, i see blurr in the jugdement your honour show some leiniency, or protect both

  12. What About The Parents Of The Girl They Should Also Be Charged Coz Its Their Responsibility To Look After Her And Again The Punishment Is Harsh To The Boy Coz He Did Not Force Her Into Marrying Him She Did That on Her Own Free Wil

  27. That’s why we ve a lot of broken marriages in our rulal areas coz kids are forced to marry ve kids then later realise thy r not ready for marriage n thy pack their belongings taking the kids with them to be raised in their parents homes n it’s normal for them n it’s going on n on.instead of allowing kids to grow up n be ready for marriage thy r encouraged it’s ok to get married at 14 yhooo wonders shall never end in Malawi as long as am alive no one wil Marry my Dota at 14.the parents are very much at fault in this coz if thy didn’t want the marriage or if thy knew it was wrong thy shud ve protected their Dota from the marriage n no one wud be in jail for rape now the parents who allowed it are comfortable at home while the young man who married the gal with the concernt of the parents wil languish in jail,in such cases even the parses shud b brought to book thy allowed it for their own gain.gals are being turned into taking over the parents responsibilities at a young age coz parents feel the son Inlaw wil provides one or two things for them it’s just pathetic
