Man jailed 21 years for Defilement in Ntcheu

Posted in

The court, through State Prosecutor Sub Inspector Agness Msoma, heard that on July 24, 2022, the wife of the accused left home for piece work, leaving the children in the company of the father.

Upon her return, she caught Evesiyo red-handed defiling the eight-year-old daughter.

She then immediately reported to Kambilonjo Police Unit where the victim was issued a medical referral form and the results showed she was indeed defiled, leading to the arrest of Evesiyo.

Appearing before the court, Evesiyo pleaded not guilty to the charge, prompting the state to parade witnesses who proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

In mitigation, Evesiyo asked for the court’s leniency, citing that he has family obligations.

However, in her submission, State Prosecutor Msoma called for stiffer punishment for the accused so that it serves as a deterrent to other would-be offenders.

Passing the sentence, Senior Resident Magistrate Joshua Nkhono concurred with the state and sentenced Evesiyo to 21 years imprisonment with hard labor.

Evesiyo hails from Chiseme Village in Traditional Authority Mpando in Ntcheu District.
