A 22 year old young horny teacher has been sentenced to 12 years imprisonment with hard labour for defiling his 9 year old school girl.
The libidious teacher appeared before Rumphi First Grade Magistrate court to answer charges levelled against him.
Rumphi Police public relations officer Victor Khamisi said Christopher Mwansambo who hails from Mkandapachuma village in the area of Traditional Authority Mwalwen in Rumphi defiled the girl on her way back from a football match between her school and Mahilu.
“Christopher told the girl that her parents have called him to escort her home therefore they had to pass through his office where he ended up having carnal knowledge with the girl.”, said Khamisi.
He added, “upon reaching her home she refused to take any meal which promoted her mother to ask her why she refused to eat, thus when she told her that she has been defiled by her school teacher”.
The matter was reported to Livingstonia police who issued a medical report where it revealed that she has been defiled and Christopher Mwansambo was arrested and charged with defilement contrary to section 138 (1) of the penal code.
When he appeared before First Grade Magistrate Cuthbert Phiri he pleaded guilty to the charge and in his submissions Prosecutor Inspector Michael Paulino prayed before court to impose a stiffer sentence on the accused as he was a custodian of children and that he planned to commit the offence. The prosecutor said a stiffer punishment would be a good lesson to other would be offenders .
Mwansambo ha since been slapped with 12 years imprisonment with hard labour effective the date of his arrest on August 17, 2017.
