A 66-year old ‘horny’ woman will spend the next four years of her life in prison after Salima Magistrate Court convicted her of raping a 17 year old imbecile boy.
The woman identified as Nelia Goman committed the crime on 24 August, thus according state prosecutor Christina Ning’ang’a.
Salima Senior Resident Magistrate heard that the victim visited the convict’s residence with the intentions of playing with her grandchildren but unfortunately he didn’t find them.
The only person found was the convict who enticed the imbecile boy and later on she slept with the boy.
Appearing in court, the convict pleaded not guilty to the offence and this prompted the state to parade four witnesses to seek conviction.
In submission, the state prosecutor prayed for stiff custodial sentence citing that the offence is serious and the convict lacked parenthood in caring for the victim who is the imbecile.
In mitigation the convict pleaded with the court for leniency thereby citing that she is very old to serve jail term and that she suffers from high blood pressure.
Passing sentence, Senior Resident Magistrate Joana Kwatiwani quashed her mitigating factors and instead concurred with the state and later ordered her to serve four years imprisonment with hard labour.
The convict Nelia Goman hails from Sumbi village in Traditional Authority Makanjila in Mangochi district.
