Hearing in Gwaladi case continues

Written by  Sam Phiri

Phalombe first Grade Magistrate Court on Tuesday heard the rape case involving acoustic musician, Joe Gwaladi, in which he is alleged to have raped a 14-year-old girl.


If found guilty, he risks being jailed for 14 years, but the artist denied the case.

During the previous hearing, Gwaladi well known for his straight talk on prostitution and sex in his tracks like Tumbocid pleaded not guilty to rape charges brought against him by Phalombe First Grade Magistrate Damson Banda.

On May 28th during the hearing, he surprised the entire court when he said he never slept with the girl because her ‘private part was too small.`

Yes, I invited to have sex with me but I did not do it because her part was too small for me; That’s when I immediately demanded her to dress because she wasn’t fit enough`. Gwaladi admitted.

He was nabbed on Wednesday last week for being accused of raping Lizzie Mawila, a 14 year old girl.

Following his plea, the state is expected to start parading five witnesses who will testify against him today 2 June 2, 2015.

Gwaladi, 22, hails from Magaleta village, Traditional Authority Mkanda in the district of Mulanje.

He is being remanded at Phalombe Police Station.
