“Dignity is granted by God and Article 24 in our national constitution states that people should be treated with dignity. The convict didn’t only stop at rapping the victim but went ahead and
assaulted her, injuring her face private parts,” he said.

However, defense counsel Francis Bironi in his mitigation asked court to be lenient to his client by granting him at most five years imprisonment.
