Kalomo man jailed for inserting burning stick in raped wife’s vagina

A 26 year old man of Kalomo district has been jailed for inserting a burning stick in the private part of his wife after he discovered that she was raped by their neighbour.

John Muchindu has been jailed for three years with hard labour by Magistrate Ben Mbao.

The court was told that when Muchindu discovered that his wife was raped, he battered her and took a fire glowing stick to burn her in the thighs and later inserted the stick in her vagina.

Muchinda then went for the neighbour and was paid three cows and five hundred thousand Kwacha cash.

The woman was raped on August 20, 2011 and attacked by her husband around the same period.

But her ordeal was not known until October 10 when she went to the funeral of her grandmother.

The court heard that the woman who could not posture herself properly at the funeral of her grandmother  attracted the attention of elderly women who demanded  a feminine inspection and a medical extermination which  revealed that she was raped and tortured.

Muchindu was apprehended on October 24 after the matter was reported to Police but the rapist has not yet been arrested.
