—-A 45-year-old man of Nsama district in Northern Province has been jailed for 40 years with hard labour by the Kasama High Court for anal sex.
Appearing before Ndola based Judge Jenny Kabuka was Musonda Sakalani of Munwa village in Nsama district who was charged with unnatural offence contrary to Section 155 (a) of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
Particulars of the offence were that on March 31, 2014, at Nsama, the accused did have carnal knowledge of a boy aged 13, an act against the order of nature.
Sakalani pleaded guilty to the charge and in passing sentence, Justice Kabuka said the convict was old enough to be the victim’s father.
Judge Kabuka said the sentence would be a deterrent to would-be offenders.
In the same court, a 72-year-old man of Luwingu district in Chief Katuta’s village has been imprisoned for 18 years with hard labour for defilement.
Facts before the court were that on December 16, 2013 David Kasenge did have carnal knowledge of a minor.
Justice Kabuka said she considered the act as an aggravating offence which far outweighs the mitigation by the accused’s legal Counsel.
