Malawi court orders arrest of Pakistan mother for racism and baby abduction: ‘Asian Muslim can’t marry Tumbuka Christian’

A Malawian man Thando Mhango has obtained court order demanding the arrest of a Pakistan mother Salma Sattar for allegedly abducting his child and for discriminating him on grounds of race, color and religion.

Magistrate Viva Nyimba: Gave the order

Magistrate Viva Nyimba: Gave the order

Sattar is the mother to Mhango’s girlfriend of one and half years, Aisha Kali, 22.  The two started dating in 2014.

However, Sattar is said to have been against the relationship late alone her daughter having a baby of a man not of her race and religion.

Sattar and Kali are of Asian origin and are Muslims while Mhango is a Tumbuka and a Christian by faith.

According to facts presented in Blantyre Senior Resident Magistrate’s Court, Sattar has been against Mhango’s relationship with her daughter because he is black and a Christian, which she is said to be against her culture.

Complicating the matter is the fact that Mhango in 2014 impregnated Kali and Sattar was not pleased to a point that she demanded an abortion in order to cover-up the whole issue from her family.

However, In 2015- before Kali gave birth- Sattar changed her mind and made a pact with Mhango that he would be given the baby after birth but he should end the relationship with her daughter.

Surprisingly, Sattar sneaked out of the country same year with her daughter, soon after giving birth without notifying Mhango, forcing him to seek court’s help.

On Tuesday this week Mhango obtained a court order against Sattar after he found out that she allegedly left the country for Pakistan with Kali and his baby.

Issued and signed by Senior Resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba, the Order demands police to investigate and prosecute Sattar of criminal offence “bordering on child trafficking or infanticide or homicide’.

The order demands Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) to institute inquiries on Sattar for allegedly discriminating Mhango on grounds of race, color and religion.

“The matter be reported to the press for possible publicity against the practice of discriminating the Applicant (Mhango) on grounds of race, color and religion, which practice infringes the Constitutional rights of every citizen,” reads the Order in part.

Magistrate Nyimba also issued Mhango and Immigration Department with Interlocutory Order against Sattar under Order 12 Rule 17 of the Subordinate Court Rules, restraining her, if she is still in Malawi, from leaving the country until the court makes its determination on the matter.

Background Details 

In an interview with Nyasa Times, Mhango disclosed his relationship with Kali started in 2014 and getting her pregnant was an agreed idea which was aimed at solidifying their relationship against Sattar’s resistance.

“Our relationship started in October 2014 and in April 2015 her family found out and she got in trouble for it to a point that she wasn’t allowed to go out for two months; and when she came out we decided that the only way for us to be together was if she got pregnant,” explained Mhango.

“And in September we found out that she was pregnant and she was hiding it from her family but her mother found out about it. On the 20th of April 2015- when she was about eight months pregnant- her mother asked to meet me, and when we met she criticized me, my religion, my race and everything”.

Mhango said Sattar demanded her daughter to abort the pregnancy but he managed to negotiate with her. At first Sattar had agreed to allow Mhango marry her daughter but in secret before changing her mind.

“She agreed with the arrangement and allowed me to marry her daughter. She even requested to meet my parents; and at the meeting the same thing was said. She said she can live with me happily with her daughter”.

On the 6th May, 2015 Mhango said Sattar texted him, claiming her family had found out about the pregnancy therefore he could not marry Kali, instead, he would be given the baby.

“I accepted it. However, on 20th May I got a Whatsapp call from Pakistan and it was my girlfriend’s mother. She said they had to go to Pakistan but the girl had not given birth yet and then two days later she called again, saying she lied; Kali gave birth about a week earlier but she lost the baby,” he added.

Mhango said his investigations found out that Kali gave birth to a live baby but her family was trying to hire doctors to kill the baby.

“I went to court and a summoned was served to her brother. Two days following the court summon, Mrs. Sattar called me, saying that the baby is alive but the doctor advised them that it needed to be with her mother for at least nine months; and since then I haven’t heard from them. My worry is if the baby is still alive or if they did something to my child,” complained Mhango.

    Do you think ma Paki angalole zopusazo? These are the pipo who can stone their own daughters for failling to take orders from their elders, and it is their culture in Pakistan.Forget it as your girl friend has got a cousin already waiting to shag her now. I doubt if that court order can work, silly boy! Remember these are arabs who behaves like jews and indians.Their men can shag a black lady but they don’t want to see a black man shagging their women,they would rather kill her.So in your case l feel sorry for you poor stupid boy who thought could change that behaviours and decided to put yourself in that position. You were supposed to do your home work first poor boy. If you were looking for a different colour from our tumbukas,yaos and sena’s then man go for a white lady! You will be a very lucky boy if your baby can survive there because of their blood shedding practices,but forget about that baby for now! Open your eyes!

  4. Crosby Phiri says:

    Mr Mhango, learn to marry in a proper manner. You do not impose yourself. You are given a wife. The parents have power over their daughter. You are using the courts which did not bear a child. Respect your girlfriends parents. Next time, remember to seek permission from parents.

  5. RightWrong says:

    I see a lot of comments here … And all of it has moved from the subject and gone to abusing religions ( not good) People grow up. Two idiots had sex had a baby and have a problem. Let them sort out their mess … The media has a job of giving un verified news all the time. You believe anything these media platforms say then there is no one as dumb as you.

    I say.. If the guy isn’t married and wants the baby.. Then give it to him… And if the woman wants the baby and that Man is the father then get married and provide for the baby!! Why should he baby be punished for your silly mistakes!!

  6. Dzira says:

    This should serve as a lesson to most Malawian women who like opening up their legs to these racist Asians.It makes me angry to see Malawian women being sexually exploited by these Asians.Malawian ladies what is it that you want in these amwenye?I understand that Pakistans/Indians have small shafts!

    TRUTH BE TOLD, WE HAVE SO MANY ASIAN MEN (INDIANS, PAKISTANS, BANGALLES, ETC) WHO GO OUT WITH MALAWIAN WOMEN. WHY SHOULD IT ONLY BE AN ISSUE FOR A MALAWIAN MAN TO GO OUT WITH AN ASIAN WOMAN?

    ASIAN WOMEN MUST KNOW THIS THAT MOST OF YOUR HUSBANDS CHEAT AND GO OUT WITH MALAWIAN WOMWN, WHETHER YOU BELIEVE THIS OR NOT.

    SO YOU BETTER WISE UP TOO.

    IN ANY CASE, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN MINGLE WITH AFRICANS (MALAWIANS), WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THEIR COUNTRY? WHY DONT YOU REMAIN IN YOUR COUNTRY AND MARRY AMONGEST YOURSELVES?

    MORE OVER I HEAR INDIANS HAVE STARTED CHASING ALL AFRICAN FROM THEIR COUNTRY. ITS HIGH TIME WE DID THE SAME. IDI AMIN WAS NOT WRONG AFTER ALL, CHASING ALL INDIANS FROM UGANDA DURING HIS TIME.

Married not married is your baby….chibwenzi its onother type of banja losabvomereza kwa anthu akuchimuna or chikazi … nkhani ya racism basi

  11. President Pedro says:

    Anthu sitimadziwa zosankhilana. kukwatira sikungolowetsa nyini ku mbolo , sorry the opposite. So whats so pscial with the Indian or Pakistanis.

  12. Gogodasi says:

    My friend Mad, Muhammad was not just a soldier. When he died he his body was eaten by dogs that’s why Muslims hate dogs. They never buried his dead body, but was food for the hungry dogs when our own Jesus, the Saviour rose from the dead and is still alive. In other words Jesus Christ is the conqueror of death, but Muhammad panja.

    1. Jigidi Jaba says:

      What you have said is the crap that ignorant and hatred filled parents and Sunday school teachers taught you when you were a todler. This is no a platform for you to be spweing your ignorance filled trash. Are you more knowledgeable about Muhammad that the myriad of PhDs who have dedicated their lives to studying the life of this man? Who are you to think you can educate us about Muhammad and what he did? After all the issue here is not about Muhammad, but the Satar family. Had it been that you had some education you would know the racism is one issue that is entrenched among the culture of the indo-park region. You would have known that that though Muhammad, you are denigrating here, caught hard against racis, the racism found among the indo-park peoples is a remnant of their previous Hindu background. Go to school Mr Gogodus and have your brain cleansed of the shit it currently contains, which you think is knowledge that you can bring on this public platform.

    2. Amzym says:

      Listen Gogodasi or whatever your name is. Get your facts straight. You know absolutely nothing about Islam or our prophet so stop making up stories. Don’t make a mockery of our religion. I wouldn’t even say that about Jesus because we believe that Jesus was also the prophet of God. Islam is the religion of peace and that’s what you people fail to understand. It’s time you learn to respect our religion just as how we respect yours.

    3. Robby says:

      Yes, He wasn’t just a soldier, he was the greatest soldier of God. And even if he was eaten by dogs for arguments sake, what does it have to with the faith? Here is an article talking about discrimination based on race and faith and then there is a comments like this that is blasphemous. How are we going to solve these issues if everyone wants to talk cause havoc. Educate yourself in the art of peaceful commenting. Have a good day and may peace be with you my brother.

  13. prof. Odiyayo says:

    The Analyst you are racist and inhumane. love and marriage know no boundary. Stop this primitive devil advocacy. I have my Chinese wife and I don’t regret to have her because she does an excellent job.

    1. The Analyst says:

      O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….O
      Wow! an “inhumane”, “primitive” and “devilish” “racist”? aiaiaiaiaiaia!! Can it get worse than this? I doubt!
      . . . if you cared to read the comment, in question; you would easily notice that there is nothing racial about it. And you cannot pick up a single sentence or word or letter glaringly declaring that The Analyst is an inhumane, primitive, devilish racist.
      . . . all am saying is even if someone is black for instance, there are certain kind or manners of black people he/she cant marry; because of his/her definition of an ideal marriage partner.
      . . .and if you had just pretended to be the prof you claim to be, you would have known that this issue of Mhango is beyond race. There is issue of religion, class (afluence), culture e.t.c.
      . . . You would have known that banja is not just about kufunda guza iai (being under blankets). It’s a lot.

      It seems prof. You are reading now chinese,you have forgoten totaly how to read english. Theres nothing wrong with this article. It us pipo who are comenting in different ways according to our levels of understanding and knowledge who are making this article look good or bad. Or else you just wanted to let us know that you married chinese!Good for you,you didn’t Pakistan!

  14. Jelbin Makamo says:

    Comments here show what exactly Malawi is into. Malawi is divided into religional, regional, racial and tribal lines as a human being you need to always be a neutral person not aligning ourselves with tribes, races, educational background or even regions. We are all human beings and God created us in his own image but we are not told in which race or colour is God so let’s be careful when treating anyone with a different colour from ours. What yhe Pakistan woman did is uncalled for and people such as Analyst are not coversant enough with this new edge wherevall races are alike unlike during colonial time when man was in the dark when everyone believed all people with a light skin was superior to anyone with a dark or black skin. You can’t justfy what that woman (Sattar) did under any circumstances it is inhuman. A parent has no jurisdiction over his/her daughter/son’s choice of marriage though they can advise without naking choices for them. Love is for two people and a not for two families thus why we have some irresponsible children amidst because they are a result of a forced family which is not a happy and conversant one. We can’t live in the past, where marriages were done by our parents who propose to each other that their son and daughter should get married while the owners know nothing probably just because they (parents) went to the same school.

      I now know why people fail exams . . .
      . . . they read whats on the exam paper but understand whats in their mind.
      If you relook at the comment in question, no where has The Analyst said any race is seperior or inferior to another, as implied in your comment.
      . . . Even if I take the trouble of translating n summarising it for you.
      The 1st paragraph says – anybody has the freedom of choice, including whom to marry.
      . . . .2nd . . ………… says – you dont force people to like you by tricks or whatever abracadabra.
      . . . .3rd . . . ……. .. says – the guy should take care as forcing himself on people who dislike him can be disastrous, specifically for him.
      Let us read whats written and understand whats written, not something else; lest we accuse others falsely hence break the 9th, of the 10 Commandments.

  15. The Analyst says:

    O…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O
    Everybody knows the kind of person they can and cant marry.
    . . . . And every parent only wishes the best for their children, howsoever defined.
    . . . . . . . . Even in our churches or mosques or mountains; we are told and strongly encouraged to marry our own.
    . . . . . . . . . . . . .Even in our mental constructions, we have a long list of kinds of people we cant marry even at gunpoint.
    Is it wrong when some choose to be open about this, yet others do the same but in secret?
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Yes it is the wish of many black folks to get married to, or perhaps kulawako a non-black; but truth is – what you Mhano and this girl agreed to do was/is very wrong, in the sight of both God and men.
    . . . You should have been wise enough to know that there are so many good reasons for getting married to someone, but impregnating that someone; is not one of them.
    . . . You should have known also, that while love is for two people to feel and share; marriage is something beyond two people. Its a union between families. And there should be parameters for the two families to get along.
    . . . Thus, when all was laid bare for your naked eye to see and brain to comprehend; you should have known that you are not needed by this family and shouldnt have forced or tricked them into liking you.
    . . . You should have known that getting this lady pregnant, would make the parents dislike you even more.
    You dont force people, by tricks or whatever; to like you; it’s a basic rule of life! Iwe sukudziwa izi bwanji?
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    That this mother-in-law doesnt like you; is an open secret . . .
    . . . but do you know what else she is capable of doing, to express her dislike over you? She can liquidate you, if you are to be enlightened.
    . . . Yes you may be proud to be a lion that died while loving someone, but I can promise you that a living ant is far better than a dead lion.
    . . . Thus if you were wise, you would stay away.
    I dont even know what it means but . . .

      You Mhango can cheat the judges but not some of us.
      . . . truth be told, what you want is not necessarily the baby but the woman.
      You Mhango know (as do some of us), that once you get hold of the child, you shall have unlimited access to the lady and certainly her . . . .mmmm…
      . . . You are disputing this? Ok, do you suppose that the child will be better looked after by you or the mother? minding the fact that child is still small and young?
      . . . But know this that there is more to life than loving a woman, be it Black, White, Asian, Coloured etc.
      . . . Wise up dude!

        I dont see anything wrong with Analyst comments, they are nothing but the truth. Mhango is better living than dead and looking at how determined the mother to your gal is, you can easily be eliminated….. remember these are Pakistanis who would kill for what they believe in. Take care Mhango, azimayi sanathe padziko. Wise up and let go, painful as it may be.

        1. The Analyst says:

          Thanks Maggie.
          . . . People don’t like to be told the truth, thats all.

    If Mhango says tht he went up to the moon or the sun are u Nyasatimes goin to to publis tht as well? Mr. Mhango, u hav not married the girl so how can u claim the baby, that is if the baby exists. Nyasatimes, what proof do u hav tht the baby exists or tht the baby is Mr. Mhango’s? Stupid Mr. Mhango and stupid Nyasatimes.

    1. Zoona zake says:

      if it wasnt his, why didnt the 2 women say so in the first place? Its clear to me that from their discussions, his partenity is not in question, rather his race and religion

      Ok if tht is the case, Barack Obamas forefathers cum frm Kenya does this mean the American shud kick him out. Come on pipo. Some of th mwenye u are referring to are born and bread in MALAWI and are MALAWIAN CITIZENS. You also have to remember there are thousands of Malawians staying in Europe and America nd if we go by wht u are saying they should also be kicked out and sent back to MALAWI!

      1. MaiMai says:

        Atleast no malawian in Pakistan get life man Chimz. These Pakistan are cruel animals i can assure you that they have murdered this girl KALI. Just last week they killed 2 girls forcefully for refusing to marry someone or marrying someone against their parents wishes

        1. Mhango, upeze amphawi anzako malo awa: Kaning’ina, Zorozoro, Mchengautuwa kapena ku Bwengu. Ukulimbana ndi anthu akudya bwino ukufuna kuthetsa umphawi wako eti? Fotseki!!!!

      2. Khumutcha says:

        It is one thing staying in a foreign land with other people and races, and it is another thing living in foreign land and be considering yourself superior and etc.

        When Malawians live abroud, they mingle with other people but with these Amwenyes here in Malawi, they consider themselves superior to us, that we should bow down to them, and think they are of a higher social class to us, the owners of the land.

        As for Barack, bwambo ake married a native and koma kuno, what happens when mmwenye wants to court a native Malawian, the story above happens. Enanso amachita kumenyedwa by amwenye brothers.

    2. Chimz says:

      So Malawian living abroad should also be called back to malawi then.

      Listen to yourself discriminating by religion. Moslem or not we are all human. Malawi is not a moslem country. And you must be shallow minded to say she stupid to have a relationship with a non-moslem. In this century u cant think so shallow mindedly Sadick

  24. mad says:

    That’s why i always call Muslims unholy people. a person with moral conscious cant do that unholy act in the face of our creator. The problem is Muhammad was a solder, he killed people, and that’s his followers.

    1. what do you expect from people following a person who married a 12 year old(paedophile) and later a woman very old to be his mother?

      1. philosopher says:

        and what do u expect from people like u who are ignorant who dont even know the purpose of life, to say good about the most influential man on earth?

        1. MaiMai says:

          Who most influential man? Muhammad? ??? Kkkkk murder and womaniser. ..thats who he was. Sunni Vs Shia then you know your man…Imam Hussein is our man you muhammad wakoyo hule
