Sorry @ Tkt, Biti didn't change the law, he argued his case before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court agreed with him. The Supreme Court only interprets the law and doesn't make the law either. Parliament (The House of Assembly) makes the law, and theoretically The Senate is supposed to superintend over the legality of the law passed by House of Assembly.

Please update yourself on the functions of each arm of the state

In the past a female above the age of 16 years would consent to ****ual intercourse. This has now been struck down. The age of consent has been raised to 18 years. A girl under the age of 18 is now incapable of consenting to ****ual intercourse. Anyone who engages in ****ual intercourse with a girl who is under the age of 18 years with her full consent is now going to be charged with statutory rape.
