Malawi’s Ntcheu first grade magistrate court has sentenced a 26 year old man to six years imprisonment for sodomising a 20 year old boy without consent.

Ntcheu first grade magistrate Johns Masula said he convicted Tokha Nason, considering that the victim is also an embecile, on top of violating the laws of the land.

Representing the state, police prosecutor Inspector Henry Chigoli paraded several witnesses to testify against the accused.

The state also tendered as evidence a medical report that proved the victim’s anal knowledge.

Inspector Chigoli asked the court to consider giving a stiffer sentence.

In mitigation, Nason who denied the charges, asked for leniency saying he looks after the elderly and some orphans.

But Ntcheu First grade magistrate Johns Masula quashed the mitigation factors saying Nason would have considered these before committing the felony.

First grade magistrate Masula sentenced Tokha Nason of Ngalande village traditional authority Njolomole in Ntcheu district, to six years imprisonment with hard labor, after finding him guilty.
