The Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate’s Court has sentenced 37-year-old Chisomo Mazoni to 8 years in prison for discharging semen in the mouth of a 9-year-old boy.

Mazoni was found guilty on Thursday August 25, 2022 on a charge of sexual activity with a child.

The offence, which contravenes Section 160B (1) of the Penal code, attracts a maximum 14-year jail term.

State Prosecutor Sub Inspector Steve Galleta, who is based at Namitete Police Post, told the court that the convict committed the crime on May 25 2022 at Sinsamala Village Traditional Authority (T/A) Kalolo in the district.

Galleta said the convict called the boy into his bedroom and enticed him to lick his manhood in exchange of a K100 note and roasted goat skin, as payment.

The little child complied until the convict ejaculated in his mouth.

Later, the victim narrated his ordeal to his mother, who took the matter up to Nathenje Police Post.

In his trial, Mazoni pleaded not guilty and the State paraded four witnesses to prove its case.

In his submission, Galleta argued the convict’s actions were deplorable and shocking; hence the need to mete out a meaningful sentence.

However, Mazoni prayed for leniency, citing huge family obligations.

But Chief Resident Magistrate Madalitso Khoswe Chimwaza agreed with the State and sentenced the convict to eight years imprisonment with hard labour.
