A Zambian court has sentenced a man to 10 years imprisonment for sleeping with a mentally challenged woman four years ago.
Edwin Sakala, was arrested in March 2019 after residents exposed him for having carnal knowledge of a mentally ill woman in Masala.
Eyewitnesses had revealed that the man, who was 29 years at the time used to drag the woman into his apartment every night to have sex with her and then bring her out early in the morning.
A source told Zambian Eagle; “the man has been dragging her into his apartment late nights and bring her out early mornings.”
Sakala met his Waterloo after neighbours who had been suspecting him paid more attention to his movements, and then caught him in the act.
Masala police arraigned him in court and after 4 years of the case lingering, a judge found him guilty and convicted Sakala.
But the convict was given an option of marrying the mentally challenged woman or get a 10 years imprisonment sentence.
