‘Prophet’ arrested for defilement
In Chikwawa, the Magistrates court has convicted -Mphatso Ndaona – a self-acclaimed prophet, on charges of defilement.
The court heard that the prophet was defiling 16 year old girls, in the name of healing them spiritually -at his home in Mpama village in the area of senior chief Makhwira.
Speaking before passing a verdict, First Grade Magistrate Gladson Chirundu said that the case committed by Ndaona is serious in nature and deserves more than 14 years imprisonment.
He said as a first grade magistrate, his jurisdiction is to sentence the culprit to a maximum of 14 years but looking at the offence, the convict is liable to even more than 20 years.
With this Chirundu -has referred the matter to the Blantyre Magistrate Court for sentencing.
