Rape Obscene

Shame, Assemblies of God pastor jailed after he slept with 16-year-old girl & Impregnated her.

A pastor from the Assemblies of God was sentenced to eight years in prison for sleeping and impregnating a 16-year-old girl.

Pastor Steven Chabwera of the Assemblies of God Church in Mchinji will serve eight years in prison for impregnating a 16-year-old girl from Nkhwazi Village in Traditional Authority Mavwere. Chabwera is a member of the Mchinji congregation.

The conviction came as a result of the Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace of the Archdiocese of Lilongwe (CCJP Lilongwe) referring the matter to the police for further investigation and prosecution.

In Lilongwe, the Community Paralegal Programme (CPP) is being implemented with the primary goal of promoting the resolution of disagreements and disputes through community-based organizations and traditional dispute-resolution methods.

In a statement, Alexius Nasoni, the CCJP Lilongwe district coordinator for Mchinji, stated that the case had been referred to the police because it was of a criminal nature.

"Following discussions and counseling, the offender entered a guilty plea, and the girl expressed a desire to continue her education. The matter, on the other hand, was submitted to the police and eventually to court. "He was sentenced to eight years in prison, and the daughter has returned to school," Nasoni said.
