90-year-old man sentenced to 21 years imprisonment for defiling his two granddaughters aged 10 and 11; claims the victims 'seduced him'



A 90-year-old grandfather, Lester Danken, has been sentenced to 21 years imprisonment with hard labour on each count for defiling his two granddaughters aged 10 and 11, at Kufunda Village, Traditional Authority Kachere in Dedza, Malawi.



Dedza Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Sergeant Cassim Manda, who confirmed the development on Friday, said during trial, Danken admitted to raping the children but was quick to say he commited the offence because the victims seduced him.



State Prosecutor, Sub Inspector Mercy Scott, explained in court that Danken in September 2021 sexually forced himself on the first victim.



The victim's mother who stays close to Danken's house was surprised to see her daughter coming out of her grandfather's house with her underwear in her hand.Latest Post
