67-yr old in for second defilement case


Police in Zomba last week arrested 67-year old Nedson Sipindulo on accusation that he defiled an eight year old girl.

Zomba police spokesperson Patricia Supuliano confirmed in an interview, adding the accused is a second offender having committed a similar offence before.

He finished his eight years jail term on January 7, 2014 only to repeat the defilement offence on March 29 2016 which he accepted during cautioning.


“The accused is indeed under our custody. He was staying at a camp in Jali that was set aside for flood victims from Mulula village in Traditional Authority Mwambo here in Zomba, and while in his tent he called the kid as she was passing by going to play with her friends.

“He defiled her and gave her K50 but warned her not to reveal to anyone because she would be in trouble. However, some people observed that she was having difficulties in walking and they alerted her mother, who in turn reported to Jali police post,” Supuliano said.

Medical examination done at Pilimiti Heath Centre where police officers at Jali referred the victim to confirmed that she was indeed defiled.


According to the Zomba police spokesperson, the accused will soon appear before court to answer a charge of defilement.
