Rapist teacher slapped with 18 years for infecting student with STI


The Mzuzu Chief Resident Magistrate Court on 8th June 2016 sentenced a primary school Deputy Head teacher to 18 years imprisonment with Hard Labour for defiling his 14 year old pupil.

According to Deputy Public Relations Officer for Mzuzu Police, Cecilia Mfune, the incident occurred in December 2014 at Chamalaza FP School in Nkhatabay District where the girl was doing a self-boarding.

PoliceState Prosecutor Lyson Kachikondo told the court that on the fateful day the girl was called by the convict into the house when she was coming from the bathroom. He then had carnal knowledge with her and threatened to kill her if she were reveal to anyone.

The victim remained quiet until on 10 July 2015 when she felt serious pains and developed sores on her private part. She narrated the whole story to her mother.

When the matter was reported to Police, the girl was referred to hospital where defilement was confirmed.

The court found him guilty and convict said nothing during mitigation.

In his ruling Chief Resident Magistrate Texas Masoaphambe said the courts should be vigilant in protecting a girl child by giving stiff punishment to offenders.

He said although the convict is a first offender what he did was dangerous and he has to be punished severely.

The Magistrate further said it was sad that the convict saw a woman in his pupil instead of looking for women of his age.

The court said by giving her sexual transmitted infection the girl will live with the trauma for the rest of her life therefore serving a jail term of 18 years suits his character.

The convict Albert Zunda 49 years of age hails from Chitungulu village, Traditional Athority Katumbi in Rumphi district.
