Address of the Prosecution
“Here is a woman who is a cold blooded murderess she calculated and murdered a good, loving husband who did everything for her indeed it was through his influence that she entered university and studied Gender and Development up to M.Sc. level at the end of her course she was accorded the overall best student when she came back from overseas studies he set up her organization and got U.K sponsors for her.
My client waited patiently for her to deliver the dividends by expanding his lineage but to no avail he still gave her chance to organize herself but still nothing after 10 years plus. Maama Debi who never favoured his marriage decided to find an alternative. Mariama her niece whom she trained herself was now being trained by her and she decided to give her as a present to her son.
“My son we have waited patiently for 10years, your wife is barren and you refused to accept it but it is the truth; Yama is fertile you’ll marry her now and she will give me my grandchildren to carry before I join my ancestors.”
“Sally heard her and decided to end her husband’ life in cold blooded murder as for the repeated rape she enjoyed it she never complain to anyone and to the few she reported to she was advice to quit before it was too late but she refused so whose fault was it? How can she endure rape and blame his innocent husband for it? She condoned rape therefore she could not blame her husband for violation she is an enabler equally guilty as Solomon.”
“My lady Sally is equally guilty as a woman murderess she has no pity for Maama Debi who lost her only son, a son who was her bread winner; this murderess murdered her husband in cold blood; if she was innocent she could just have pack her things and quietly left, murdering her husband is not an option even if what she said about the rape was true just leave end of story.”
”Ma lady Solomon love his wife when she told her the pregnancy he felt it and asked her to abort it and they redo the action in a dignified way then he will willingly accept the baby but to conceive a baby in a rape action was undesirable he could never love such a child especially his first born since for a long time. When Sally refused to do so on the pretext that she can never conceive again Solomon became desperate and did what he did.”
“Sally is a murderess and deserves sanction for life imprisonment. I rest my case.”
