The men are suspected of sexually abusing a teen girl

Detective Sub Inspector Winstone Njolomole, says the suspects Rlanos Kapire 27, Kingsley Makwana 28 and Paul Mwaona 27 were arrested following a  tip on the suspected criminals who were allegedly hiding at a certain rest house in town.

“They then rushed to scene only to find Makwana with a young girl who was hidden under the bed”.

Njolomole said the suspects were arrested on defilement and kidnapping charges.

“According to the victim, the suspects abducted her as she was coming from her uncle where she went to collect money for mock examinations and they first took her to Rlanos shop before taking her to the rest house where they defiled her.”

Njolomole said Makwana told the police that girl was defiled by his friend Rlanos Kapire who by then was at his home and said he was left there to keep watch of the girl and give her food.

“This led to the arrest of the suspects Rlanos Kapire and Kingsley Makwana on defilement charges and results from medical examinations done at Balaka District Hospital revealed that the girl was really defiled.”

Njolomole said the victim was kidnapped again following the arrest of Kapire and Makwana and was locked and hidden in the house of Paul Mwaona, one of the friends of the two suspects a move he believed would force the police to release the suspects due to absence of key witness.

“But information of the missing of the girl reached the Police who arrested Paul Mwaona on charges of kidnapping contrary to Section 262 of the Penal Code and the girl was rescued,” says Njolomole.

All the three suspects are still in Police custody and are expected to appear before court soon.

Rlanos Kapire comes from Mbewe village, Traditional Authority Nkaya in Balaka district while Kingsley Makwana and Paul Mwaona come from Mponda village, Traditional Authority Nsamala in the same district of Balaka.

    I know that there exists many consenting girls who are 14. They look for it. They know that once they open their legs money comes. Lets teach the girls to wait alittle longer. Although their genetalia can accomodate, but their brain is still small. So all three guys had a go went into one?

    Balaka, chiwanda chasikira kwa iwe

  18. MBACHI says:

    What is wrong with balaka people? It seems alot of criminals there.

  19. A kidnapped person has no choice so takes orders from the kidnappers. if she was to to go under bed she had to oblige. Secondly the issue is not about Balaka having more nyere and therefore more incidences of this nature, it could also be about Balaka having journalists who are doing their job revealing these incidences. They are happening elsewhere in Malawi at the same intensity but they are not reported.

    1. aDeaconsss says:

      It’s the effect of the heat causing them to fail to control themselves. Koma sanamupatse matenda mwanayo? Sad that this will haunt her life yet police dont see It like a big deal, the rapers will be out n free posachedwa.

  20. Mtchona wopanda mano says:

    I don’t see any kidnapping here. Why did she not shout for help?

    1. aDeaconsss says:

      If u shout wen being raped u cud 1. Be killed 2. Be hurt in yr private parts causing more serious problems in future. Best is to comply wen u get a chance to scream or run do so. Remember amuna wen they r wanting amakhala ndi zimphamvu which a woman cant handle

  21. very sad to young girl like this three men very shame.please don’t give them bale out to these criminals.

  28. True patriot says:

    1. aDeaconsss says:

  29. tiwonge says:

    Balaka ndiye mwadya one.Tizingokhalira kumva zaku Balaka.

  30. Mlolo says:

    This is not true.

  31. A MPINGO says:


  32. THE whole story does not add up. Do not protect the girl for the sake of protection. She is part of the game and you are likely to establish that the arrangement was marriage mutually agrrd upon but parents of the girl are resisting. Atolankhani you are fond of telling lies as far as defilement and rape issues are concerned. Why was she hiding? How did she came to be in the hands of the last accomplice? Was it at night or day time? Why didnt she scream? You mean they never came across any passerby all along the kidnapping process? We have good experience of these issues

  33. SM Namame says:

    Balaka!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Manyaka a district, its people are good at defiling little girls. Very bad indeed!!!!

  34. yungsai says:

  40. womenslib says:

    Why is a kidnapped person hiding under the bed instead of screaming.

    1. Elhapo says:

      Malawi is becoming a sick society. Aside of the suspects, I am amazed with those who think the young girl brought it on herself! What sort reasoning is this?

  41. kadamanja says:
