A 24-year-old man from Usagara Village in Mwanza, Tanzania has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for raping and impregnating his sister.
Misungwi Principal Magistrate Erick Marley on Wednesday, October 31, said the Prosecution adequately proved that Charles Abel committed the heinous act.
The victim, a Standard Seven pupil, told the court that on June 6 at 7:30pm, Charles stormed into her room and raped her.
The suspect, however, told the court that “there is no way I could sleep with my sister, someone must have framed me”.
He pleaded for a lenient sentence.
The magistrate, however, found him guilty of the offence, and sentenced him to 30 years in jail for raping and impregnating his sister.
