THE KASAMA HIGH COURT HAS SENTENCED A TWENTY-EIGHT YEAR OLD MAN OF MBALA DISTRICT TO TWENTY-FIVE YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR DEFILEMENT.
Appearing before Justice Charles Chanda was Maxwell Sichamba of Kachenje village in chief Nsokolo’s area in Mbala District.
Facts before the court are that on dates unknown but between April and July 2014 in Shiwang’andu District Maxwell Sichamba had carnal knowledge of a girl under the age of sixteen years old.
The court heard that on the material day Sichamba took the named girl into the bush and forced himself on her.
He later threatened to kill her if she revealed the ordeal.
But in his defence, Maxwell Sichamba denied defiling the named girl, arguing that he had found an old man in the bush defiled her.
