A 46 year old Grevazio Phinifolo last week Thursday was sentenced by Nkukula Magistrate Court in Lumbadzi, Lilongwe, to six years imprisonment with hard labor (IHL) for allegedly defiling and impregnating a 14 year old standard 6 pupil.

Information sourced by FaceofMalawi show that police had received a complaint 2 months ago that Phinifolo had been having sex with the victim, after which an investigation was launched which led to the convict’s arrest.

Confirming of the development to FOM journalists Kanengo Police Publicist Esther Mkwanda said: “The convict attempted to silence the victim’s parents with a bribe of a 50kg bag of maize, a cow and K8, 000.”

“The parents received the bribe and kept requesting bail when the convict was in police custody.”

Mkanda further revealed that although the advised the parents to use the bribe, they refused to grant the bail arguing that Phinifolo would not get any bail until he got slapped with a stiffer penalty.

Mkwanda also said it is believed that the girl aged 14 had been visiting the convict for several times with an aim of assisting him feeding his cattle.

Phinifolo hails from Chandawira village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Chimutu of Lilongwe district.
