Bride arrested in Balaka for parading bridal girl naked

Police in Malawi’s eastern district of Balaka are keeping in custody a 20-year-bride for allegedly undressing a 16-year-old bridal girl.

Reports show that the suspect Ethel Nomanda Kachingwe was arrested following a complaint that she undressed the girl who was one of her bridal party at her engagement ceremony.

Confirming the development Balaka Police publicist Sub-inspector Joseph Sauka says the suspect had an engagement early this month and asked the victim to be one of her bridal party.

“Since the victim had no money, the suspect offered to buy her a dress and agreed that the victim will refund the K3, 550.00 afterwards,” says Sauka.

Sauka says after the engagement, the girl took the dress but failed to pay the agreed amount.

“Last Saturday, the suspect met the girl and took her to her house where she undressed her and ordered the girl to parade naked for failing to pay the agreed amount. He was saved by a sympathizer who gave her a Chitenje ,” says Sauka

Sauka says Kachingwe is still in police custody and is to be taken to court soon where she will answer a case of insulting the modesty of a woman which is contrary to section 137(3) of the penal code.

Ethel Nomanda Kachingwe comes from Mponda village, Traditional Authority Nsamala in Balaka district

  26. Viva says:

    He who finds a wife finds a good thing. This is a message to the soon groom. Is this thing a good thing? Pray and fast before you commit you don’t wanna to marry to divorce. The bride to be needs to mature as marriage is not for the faint heart. Marriage is hard work. With that sort of attitude the lady is not going to survive long.

  27. phwiyonaire says:

    Some laws are just funny, ‘insulting the modesty of a woman?’ Wow. We are still using such terms in today’s world? The 21st centuary woman and modesty? What do you mean by modesty, where does it begin or end? The woman in question was without question violeted but i dont think the crime should be phrased with such archaic terms as ‘the modesty of a woman’. It is backwards and has repressive connotations somehow.

  28. zakali says:

    Too much

  29. Likoma Economist says:

    The underlying problem here is that weddings are now an income generating enterprise. It is an industry – a lucrative industry which does not even pay taxes.

  30. moya says:

    My interest is the charge or law under application “insulting modesty of a woman” suppose it was a male stripped this law would now apply I guess and define the modesty of a woman so that we men are not arrested for attire our women some short sexy clothing attire and som women could self insult their modesty and be too.

    If this was only an engagement ceremony then Kachingwe can’t be referred to as bride.

    Banja loliyambira mundende? Truth be told, there are too many strange things happening in wedding situations in Malawi! Sometimes you see the bridal party sitting dangerously on car windows of moving vehicles. It is high time people begin to be prosecuted dad wedding practices.

    This Balaka district is full of evil spirits, need prayers, fasting. God help the district.

  43. Anaphi says:

    There’s something evil about this Kachingwe name. A similar incident happened almost 20 years ago but this time, it was the groom’s sister whose last name was a Kachingwe too; she publicly undressed one of the flows girls immediately after the reception in front Of a crowd. We had to serve her with a wrapper and hid her in the min bus. Shame to this lady and I Condon this punishment upon her.
