A 52-year old security guard, Harrison Mkundi will spend 13 years in jail for defiling a 4-year old step-daughter in Chibwana Village in Mchinji district.
Mchinji Police spokesperson Limbani Mpinganjira was in a love affair with the child’s mother.
One night, he grabbed the child by hand and took her to his house where she spent a night. He defiled her in the process.

First Grade Magistrate Yohane Nkhata slapped the convict with a 13-year imprisonment with hard labour concurring with the state that he needed to keep the child in safe custody.
