The disabled has been jailed
Blantyre Magistrate Court has convicted and sentenced Charles Kuleti, 36, to five years imprisonment with hard labour for the offence of defiling the 16 year old girl.
According to Public relations officer for Chileka police Grace Mwale, Kuleti comes from Nyamula village TA Tengani in Nsanje district.
During mitigation he pleaded for lenient punishment since he is disabled and was not aware that the girl is only 16 years old.
Passing judgment Magistrate Kondanani Chinangwa said that defilement is a serious offence that attracts tough punishment.
” I have considered you because of your condition therefore you will serve a 60 months jail term,” said Chinangwa.
Meanwhile, the same police of Chileka is keeping in custody a 16 year old boy for defiling a 6 year old girl.
