HIV+ man jailed 20 years for raping girl (5)


A 51-YEAR OLD HIV-positive from Ruwa has been slapped with a 20-year-jail term for raping a five-year-old girl from his neighbourhood after being misled into believing that his health condition could be reversed if he sexually abused the minor.


According to court papers, William Muzungu told the police in his statement that he sexually abused the minor in a bid to cure himself from the deadly virus.
Muzungu pleaded guilty to sexually molesting the girl when he appeared before regional magistrate Sandra Mupindu last Thursday.

In passing sentence, Mupindu blasted Muzungu for intentionally exposing the girl to the virus.

Prosecutor Bruce Mukwende told the court that on two occasions early this month, Muzungu lured the girl into his bedroom and sexually abused her before ordering her not to spill the beans to her parents.

However, the girl later informed her mother that she had been abused by Muzungu, leading to his arrest.
