Man sentenced to prison for defiling a disabled 10 year old girl

The Nkukula Magistrate Court in Lilongwe, Malawi on Monday, sentenced to 10 years imprisonment with hard labour Dickson Kamwendo, 28, for defiling a 10-year-old disabled girl at Area 49 in the capital.

Kamwendo was arrested on January 31 2019 after being caught defiling the standard two learner in one of the unfinished buildings.

Parents of the victim said they hired the convict in 2017 to be transporting the girl to and from school Kanengo Police deputy spokesperson, Salomy Zgambo Chibwana, said police prosecutor Madalitso Jere asked for stiff punishment.

“The parents trusted him with their child but he took advantage of her disability and defiled her,” Chibwana said.

In mitigation, Kamwendo pleaded with the court for mercy as he is a bread winner for his family.

However, First Grade Magistrate Cecilia Onsewa said the convict deserved stiff punishment to deter would-be offenders.

Kamwendo is from Mbemba Village, Traditional Authority Phambala, in Ntcheu District.
