Malawi Police arrest CEDEP officer for gay sex

Malawi Police has arrested Centre for Development of People (Cedep) officer Ishmael Makhuludzo, 29 on allegations of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy (name withheld) at Luwinga Township in Mzuzu city.

CEDEP boss Gift Trapence: Our position on minority rights is clear

CEDEP boss Gift Trapence: Our position on minority rights is clear

Mzuzu Police Public Relations Officer Sergeant Martin Bwanali said Makhuludzo allegedly  had sexually abused the boy after a night drink out.

“A medical report from Mzuzu Central Hospital indicated that sodomy took place and that the boy sustained some bruises on the anus,” Sergeant Bwanali said.

He said suspect is expected to appear in court soon to answer a charge of sodomy contrary to section 153 of the Penal Code.

Cedep boss Gift Trapence confimed the arrest, saying Makhuludzo is an Assistant Project Officer at the rights group.

Trapence said he could not comment on the matter as “the case is still in court and we do not have sufficient information.”

However, CEDEP boss said organisation’s position on minority rights remains clear.

“ We support the decriminalization of laws, which criminalize consensual sexual acts. Any non-consensual act regardless gender or age involved is unacceptable and should be dealt with by the criminal justice system,” Trapence told Nyasa Times in an email interview.

Makhuludzo hails from Mpamba Village in the area of Taditional Authority Ngabu in Chikwawa District.

    Punish these creatures who are no better than dogs. Mr Trapece or whatever they call you time is running out for you. If money is the driving factor for your support towards what you call gay rights understand that you are the next inmate. You will sleep with a male minor and you will be caught and put to jail.

  18. PSALM 51 says:

    May the Lord God Almighty rescue our nation from this evil,This is typical the work of the devil, Idon’t think it is humanand i don’t think Trapence knows himself,it is all evil propelled by the evil spirit and this charecter can only be dealtwith dy prayer and not just any prayer but deliverance and this is true,I have no appology for all those propagating same sex marrieges thet this is abomination and God destroyed Sodom and Gomorah with fire because of this sin so i woud urge trapence to rethink turn to the Lord and repent otherwise i pray the Lord to visit him in a special way because if his men are involved in this act it shows there is something he tells them which they enjoy doing but am afraid its destroying the nation and not keeping it safe from the wrath of God.

    Who says minority is on everything? Even thieves,cashgaters,armed robbers are in minority so should we decriminalise them too Mr Trepence wise up,its not that u don’t know that this is stupidity but its just because you want to maintain your job and secure the funding of your organization by stupid and devilish countries especially those from the west. I hope Mr Trepence and your colleagues have wives who are women and not men so this is stupidity on its best I think you should have led by example leave your wives and marry your fellow men!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a serious desease of the mind.

    We must ask ourselves why these cases are unreported in Arab countries?
    the answer is simple Islam is the way of life
    This dude has committed a felony he needs to be punished accordingly,if killing him is an option so be it>

    1. Chemwali chimwene says:

      Mmh. Arabs do it quietly and is tolerated. No reporting happens and the assumption is that it does not happen.

    2. JESPAS says:

      You are a lier Imraan. You don’t follow current affairs. There are alot of refugees right now from Iran who are seeking asylum in Turkey. They have run away from tough homosexual laws in Iran. Now, both Iran and Turkey are great Muslim countries. So the truth is that this evil is everywhere, irrespective of religion.

    3. Thou absent imam says:

      Silly comment. Do you also want to have women in Malawi arrested if they go to watch men’s volleyball matches? All the crimes that happen in Christian countries also happen in Muslim countries – sodomy, rape, stealing etc. Just over a month ago 5 muslim men were executed in Afghanistan for rape. Fotseki

  40. Deans says:

    When will Malawians wake up and emphatically say NO to this nonsense, We should question the integrity of Trapence and his team. Shame on you CEDEP, shame on you agents of the devil.

  41. Trapence is sell out to westerners for a few dollars the gay&lesbian he promotes is worse then dogs&pigs which differ an cite sex,pachikhalidwe chathu nzolaula!!!¡!!!!

  42. Chilombo says:

    What the hell was a 17-year old boy doing out at night?Did his parents allowed him to out night?Every beer is written clearly “NOT FOR SALE TO PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 18” This is one of the reasons,the court to also consider this and the parents should be questioned too.

  43. Mbwiye Wapata says:

    Trapence ndi Mtambo mudzasiya izi zikazakupezani zofanana ndi zomwe zinamupeza Undule! Yahwe angoyang’ana. Mnzanuyutu anamugwirira mwanayu! Is that what you are fighting for? Ana anjoka inu!!!

  45. President Museveni of Uganda says that this mathanyula behavior is learned, and can actually be unlearned. Why, in the name of God don’t our gay brothers and sisters unlearn this behavior and live like all other organisms, that reproduce through sexual intercourse?

      another tribalist diverting the topic with stupid observations. Nkhani ili apa ndi yochindana amuna okhaokha kumatako. Khalidwe lonyasa. Ndekuti a Trapence naonso amachindana ndi Ishamaeloyo nkona anamupatsa ntchito kuti azipanga promote ugeyi limodzi. Lero Ishmael wagwidwa akupanga cheat nkona a Trapence sakumubakira.

Musakhale mwampasa matenda paja akuluakulunu.

  49. Peter Nkosi says:

    This story is going to be seized upon by the LGBT media in the First World, and used to unjustifiably trash Malawi.

    From this article it appears that the alleged offence is homosexual RAPE. That is to say, the act was NOT consensual. The Malawian media must emphasise this in their headlines and first sentences of their articles.

    I suggest that Nyasa Times change the present headline from:

    “Malawi Police Arrest CEDEP Officer for Gay Sex”

    to another which indicates that the sex was not consensual.

    1. Tengupenya says:

      Alemba zenizeni zomwe munthu wamangwira, lamulo mwina kulibe zinazo (that is exactly what he was arrested for. the law may not recognize homosexual rape or sexual harassment of a male by a male). mwina akadangoyimba mlandu wovulaza mwana atamuledzeletsa.

    2. Reasonable Man says:

      Mawu! I was about to say the same thing. Kukhala ngati ku nyasatimes kuli anamathanyula ndiye akufuna nkhaniyi ioneke ngati zinali zogwirizana ncholinga choti aziti ku Malawi timazunza ma geyi. Akatero azipanga seek asylum ku maiko aazungu ponama kuti ndi ma geyi akuthawa persecution. Persecution ya kuti? Ku Malawi timadzudzula u geyi koma wina asatinamizire kuti timapanga persecute am geyi. Ma geyi ali yakali yakali pa Lilongwe ndi pa B Town, ena ochita kuvala ngati akazi atanyamula ma handbag koma sitimaapanga persecute.
