Man Defiles His Niece Several Times, Charged 30 Years In Prison

A resident of Mazimbo Village in Chunya District, Christopher Mselewa (42) has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for defiling his niece.

Mselewa was sentenced on Friday, September 24, 2021 by Chunya District Court Judge, Mtengeti Sangiwa after being caught guilty following the evidence presented in court.

Reading the verdict in front of the State Prosecutor, Mazoya Luchagula alleged in court that the accused committed the offense in February 2021 in Mazimbo Village.

It was alleged that the suspect was tasked with the responsibility of taking care of his niece as the mother was travelling. However, the accused used the chance to defile the little girl.

Judge Sangiwa said the court had confirmed the case from three witnesses brought by the Republic, which included the mother of the victim, the investigating officer and the doctor who examined her.

Prosecutor Mazoya Luchagula had earlier told the court to impose a harsher sentence on similar cases in Chunya district to be a lesson to other people with similar behaviour.
