27-Year-Old Sentenced to 2 Years in Prison for Attempted Rape in Zambia


A 27-year-old man from Ng’ombe Township in Lusaka, Zambia has been sentenced to two years in prison after being accused of attempted rape.

During his court appearance, the man, Mathews Mtonga, claimed that the incident was a misunderstanding.

He said that he and the 30-year-old woman, who was three years older, met at a bar and decided to have sex at her home while her husband was in police custody.

According to Mtonga, they were interrupted by nosy neighbors, and the woman accused him of attempting to rape her in order to cover up their compromising position.

The woman, however, claimed that her husband had assaulted her, and when the police refused to help, she enlisted Mtonga’s help to bring her husband to the police station.

She then accused Mtonga of attempting to rape her after he made sexual advances.

The judge found enough evidence against Mtonga to convict him and noted that sexual assault cases are on the rise, making his imprisonment a warning to potential offenders.
