A Malawian boy will spend seven years in jail for raping his own mother.

Macdonald Kusala committed a great abomination

An 18-year-old Malawian boy, identified as Macdonald Kusala, has been sentenced to seven years in prison with hard labour, for allegedly raping his own mother, who was drunk at the time, reports Face of Malawi.

The sentence was handed down to Kusala by a Balaka First Grade Magistrate Court, sitting in the Southern Region of the country, after he was found guilty of the dreadful act.

The police prosecutor in the case, Inspector Isaac Mponela, had told the court that Kusala had unlawful sex with his biological mother without her consent on August 21, 2015, an offence which is contrary to section 133 of the Penal code of the country.

Mponela said that on the day of the incident, Kusala's mother was totally drunk and he took advantage of her and had sex with her and was caught in the act by his brother.

Kusala pleaded guilty to the charge and asked for forgiveness and leniency in the sentencing, arguing that he is the first offender and that he was driven by the influence of alcohol.

First Grade Magistrate Felix Mandala, however denied him any leniency, saying that the suspect deserved a stiffer sentence because of the seriousness of the offence and much more, he did it to his own mother which is a taboo.
