LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Malawi Police in Dedza are keeping in custody a 25-year-old Madalitso Misanjo suspected of raping an 81-year-old woman.

Dedza Police Station deputy publicist Cassim Manda said the incident happened on March 14, 2022, at Njolo village, Traditional Authority Kaphuka in the district.

Both the victim and suspect were drinking kachasu beer at the house of Misanjo’s sister on that day.

However the suspect took the victim who was fully intoxicated to her house where he started raping her.

The suspect was caught red-handed by his own sister who had gone to the house to give the woman food.

Members of the community immediately apprehended the suspect before they reported to Namoni Katengeza Police Unit where the victim was referred to Dedza District Hospital for medical examination.

Misanjo who has been charged with rape pleaded that he was too drunk to realise what he was doing.

However, section 13 of penal code, excites that Intoxication shall not constitute a defence to any criminal charge.

Misanjo comes from Njolo village, Traditional Authority (T.A) Kaphuka in Dedza district
