A 40- year Buhera polygamist who is married to 5 wives, was convicted for having sex with a 13-year-old girl despite the man’s spirited defence in which he claimed that the girl was his sixth wife. Chipinge Magistrate Sharon Chipanga, convicted Musayengana Mlambo due to overwhelming evidence and sentenced him to 2 years in prison.
In her judgement Magistrate Chipanga said:
You have no room in our society and a custodial sentence is the only option.
It is the duty of the courts to protect girl child and as such long custodial sentence will send a clear signal to society that child abuse would not be tolerated.
