Malawi girl, 14, kills mother over ‘stop prostitution’ advice

A fourteen year old girl in Mtsiriza Township in the capital Lilongwe on Monday reportedly killed her mother – Linda Chimukweseni – for reprimanding her disturbing prostitution overtures, police have confirmed.

Lilongwe police publicist Kingsley Dandaula told local press that Chimukweseni was pronounced dead upon arrival at Kamuzu Central Hospital due to severe loss of blood.

“She was fervently stabbed by the top of an umbrella,” said Dandaula.

According to Dandaula, Chimukweseni had sat down her teenage daughter for a round of pieces of advice when the latter got wild, picked up the umbrella and stabbed the former till she was unconscious.

The incident could be the first of its kind in Malawi whose style of living is deep rooted in a conservative culture which provides for children to respect elders.

A resident of the township who arrived at the house minutes after the incident happened, told Nyasa Times that the sight of the scene was disturbing.

“You couldn’t just imagine that it was a small girl doing it,” she said.

According to the resident, the girl (name withheld) has lately been spotted at various drinking joints plying her commercial sex trade as well as flirting around with married men.

“Her situation was going out of hand, and we had to ask her mother to sit her daughter down,” she added.

It is not clear whether the girl, currently in police custody, will face trial. According to Malawi laws, at her age of fourteen she is a juvenile.

But Dandaula said that considering the gravity of the crime she committed, her case will be forwarded to court.

“We will be advised on what to do about it there,” he said.

Malawi has registered a number of disturbing reports on minors selling sex in the past few days.

On Saturday, Weekend Nation reported of bubbly teenaged girls selling their bodies to men twice or thrice their age at Mama’s Shabin in Ntcheu at as low as K500 (about US$ 1) for protected sex and K1 000 (US$ 2) for unprotected sex.

    Selfish author why r u hiding ID for this notorius criminal?

  11. Only the Truth says:

    I agree with comment number 25 on the role of poverty. If you go to areas like Mtsiriza, Mtandire, Mgona, Chimoka, Kwasenti, you will be able to appreciate how poverty is taking a toll on urban dwellers. The result is that everyone tries whatever can be done to survive. Naturally, boys chose robbery and other crimes while girls are pushed to prostitution. But for one to maintain some sense of ‘courage’ in these professions, you need drugs to suppress your conscience. Hence these incidents. We have known this event because it has been picked up by the media, otherwise its a common event in these areas. Ask people from Gulliver how frequently they bury people killed in Mtandire and Mtsiriza.

  12. Foster says:

    This is the time whereby ana sasamvera akuwabala to the extent of killing them.So ridiculous!

  13. Mlakho says:

    This is sad and unfortunate, I think its foolish to blame the government on this, its just a very unfortunate situation and a very sad thing to happen to someone, the little girl has lost a mother, by her own hands. Such things should not be happening, we parents must begin to go back to basics, to teach our children on the meaning of respect and how to go about with it. We adults must also start living by example, showing them how to live in peace and show respect unto others.

    MAY THE SOUL OF THE LATE MUM REST IN PEACE. THE CASE OF THIS GIRL APPEARS TO ME THAT IT WAS SERIOUS AND WAS REQUIRING SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING BECAUSE SHE MAY BE POSSESSED WITH DEMONIC FORCES. WHEN SHE WILL REALIZE THAT SHE KILLED HER MUM, SHE WILL REGRET AND ADMIT THAT SHE WAS UNDER INVISIBLE FORCES. PARENTS LETS LEARN TO DEAL WITH SUCH KIDS SPIRITUALLY AS WELL. UMADABWA MAKANI AMAKHALA NDI ANA ENA, ITS SOMETHING BEYOND THEM I THINK

  40. Nacharrot says:

    It is tragic for the mother, her family, the girl herself and society at large. She needs proper counselling but Malawi been Malawi will just move on. Mature societies would look at themselves in the eye and ask ‘how did we get here’

    Not strange girls nowadays are rejecting their mothers like grabbing property including houses

    She will be sent to one of the reformatory centres for rehabilitation and what have you!

  43. Redeemed says:

    This is horrible and disturbing for both the young girl and the deceased mom, may God grant us wisdom enough to raise our kids in the admonition of God to avoid similar incidences, teen age phase is a very dangerous stage and can get out of hand if mishandled.

  44. dadaboma says:

    This is expected behaviour in a country that is the poorest in the world. If you didn’t know what poverty can do now you have the chance to know, courtesy of DPP govt. That’s what voting for DPP means, and there are more surprises coming. With DPP this country is finished.

    Why withholding the name of that little devil? I don’t think she deserve such rights as of now considering the gravity of the crime she has committed…that little bitch must hang no more no less. To the mother, I feel very sorry may you rest in peace if there’s a God somewhere I believe you’ll get your reward for trying to do the right thing!

  57. Chamahungwa Qoma says:

    This doesn’t come much as a surprise to me.

    Lately I have sadly noted a growing number of youths who don’t want to be rebuked and worse still be counselled.

    It’s a very worrying development becoz if one can’t heed advice it means you’re doomed.

    Let her be hanged. An eye for an eye.

  58. Suicide Bonza says:

    This girl deserves death by stoning ndithu, osamangoti mwana ali wamkulu mkati coz of zaka. The reaction came about atadzudzulidwa, this is only possible ndi akulu akulu not minors. Agendedwe ameneyu simwana

    This is terrible, a 14 year old girl killing her mother? Unfortunately there is no reformatory institute for such girls in Malawi.

  62. Sub.T/A says:

    My dear parents,when you talk to a daughter like this you can’t sit down and talk make sure you have shambok in your hand tell her to sit down and you must talk to her while you are standing if she don’t want to apologize use the shambok this case you should say the mother killed the prostitute daughter because children like this are giving the parents bad pictures

  71. Wamandasi says:

    Too much children rights is backfiring now. Whites are paying all sorts lazy, empty minded, jobless and unemployable people to run various stupid civil right groups and activism. Others are purely anarchists and organised violence.

    Children are being unrully because whites use our people tell our children that they cannt be corporal punished by the teacher or the parent. A child must remain a child until that child leaves parents’ home.

    i ask the parents annd teachers of all unrully chidren to send such children to children right groups. So that Such groups must raise them.
