The Principal Resident Magistrate’s Court in Lilongwe on Wednesday convicted and sentenced a 40-year-old man, Masamba from Dowa to 21 years imprisonment for defiling his nine-year-old biological daughter and infecting her with HIV.

The convict who resides in Kauma Township in Lilongwe was arrested by Lingadzi police some two weeks ago and pleaded not guilty to the charge of sexual intercourse with a female child contrary to Section 138(1) of the Penal Code.

Spokesperson for Lingadzi Police Station, Salomy Zgambo said that the child tested positive at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) and a child protection officer probed the issue and the girl eventually revealed that her father had been sleeping with her.

According to the spokesperson, the convict confessed in court that a witchdoctor instructed him to have sex with her daughter in order to get rich.

Principal resident magistrate Rodrick Michongwe presided over the case.
