Bricklayer jailed 25 yrs for sodomy

CHRISTINE CHIHAME, Kitwe
A 22-YEAR-OLD bricklayer of Kitwe has been sentenced to 25 years imprisonment with hard labour by the Kitwe High Court for taking turns in sodomising a 13-year-old boy with his friend.
This is in a matter in which Amon Mutambo of House Number C-125, Zambia township in Kitwe is charged with one count of an unnatural offence.
It is alleged that Mutambo on May 22 last year in Kitwe, with other unknown people had carnal knowledge of a boy against the order of nature.
In sentencing Mutambo, Kitwe High Court judge Dominic Sichinga said the state proved a case against him.
“I sentence you to 25 years imprisonment with hard labour with effect from the date of your arrest,” he said.
During trial, the victim testified that on the material day around 09:00 hours, he was going to visit his friend when Mutambo and his friend approached him and told him that they wanted to send him somewhere.
The boy testified that he followed them and they entered into a house where they locked the door, tied his hands and covered his mouth with a piece of cloth, undressed him and had sex with him through his anus.
He told the court that the two took turns sodomising him until 20:00 hours.
The juvenile told the court that the two convicts then bathed him and carried him as he was failing to walk and left him near his house.
He testified that he narrated the ordeal to his mother and the matter was reported to the police, leading to the arrested of the convicts.
