Male sex worker rescued from mob justice

Police in Lilongwe confirmed the arrest of Limbane Kukhase who was whisked away as a mob were administering vigilante justice on him as punishment for being a male sex worker and gay.

Kukhase had a female like make up on his face and dressed like a woman when he went at some drinking joints at Kagwa in Lilongwe’s Area 49 where he met a libido man who, out of drunkenness, did not realize that he was courting a male.

After arriving in a room where they were supposed to have sex, the libidos man realized that he had wrongly courted another man for sex and shouted for help.

In no time, people arrived and started beating the bi-sexual man before police from neighbouring Kanengo were called in and was whisked away.

He has since been released without any charge and the police say he was picked up for his own safety.

Centre for the Development of People (Cedep)  executive director Gift Trapence has meanwhile  asked police officers to provide access to justice and protection to sexual minorities such as lesbians, gays and transgender people.

The minority rights organisation has embarked on an access to justice project whose objectives are to empower the gay community on their right to seek formal and informal justice and security from the police and other institutional bodies if their rights are violated.

Cedep  said it has recorded over 100 cases of assault on the gay community in 2014 and a slight increase in 2015.

The  cases were not reported to police because the sexual minority community did not trust to take up their case because homosexuality is illegal in Malawi, according to Trapence.

    End of times indeed.people r busy offendind the Almighty God without taking into consideration the consequences of their silly acts.God never made a mistake when he created Adam and then made Hava for him.Your silly devil is only trying to woe partners in hell.for sure, being gay is cheap recruitment into his team.Please my fellow Malawians be careful.

    How could police release him when he was impresonating?why not charge him with theft by trick?he doesnt look Malawian to me!This guy is here to test us and we better send a clear message to his evil masters.Next time he’s caught in the same act this devil adzaone jahena.

  6. Banda says:

    It is so sad many Malawians are so ignorant that they believe being gay homosexual or a transvestite is a choice. It is NOT a choice you are born this way,
    Just as an Albino had no choice,

    Why is it that a country that says they are christens wish harm to one of God’s creatures or hate someone who is different,

    Libido man was likely more angry at himself to learn that he was attracted to a man dressed as a women and became scared.
    Seems to be nothing was wrong initially both were attracted to one another,

    All people have a right to live in freedom including Africans, Muslims, christens even gays why is it that we have difficulty accepting different people or their beliefs,

    Does it makes us better in some way, it doesn’t
    Respect and work with each other,

    Of poor gays and the rich gays,Poor gays such as these will always be in the spotlight, they
    are there to taste the waters, what of the rich gays

  8. Coolio says:

    it is of great sorrow to learn that gays r treated this way 2016, let all gays come out in open and declare stance. many of the gays in Malawi usually prefer to hide in the closet.

    all the gays should chose an active advocate
    my fellow Malawins lets pray for such people

  10. Ben P says:

    How can the Police release such a man? If u can consult our Constitution, it does not allow such malpractice…. so if u think what u have done is to serve that man. I simply say you are communicating to us that you are not professionals of The Malawi Police Service but rather a disgrace to the Malawi Nation. My appeal to fellow Malawians is that we shouldn’t ruin our nation by Western Values. Let’s refrain from such things, we will never be recognised by Western Values while we have our own.

    “Maphunziro [formal education] amachotsa umbuli, koma sachotsa uchitsiru,” once said Dr John Tembo. That is why we now have illegal trapence defending illegal homosexuality. Zopusa basi. That Kukhase deserves mob justice because the governing elite fail to preserve and defend the constitution. In fact, he violates the law for being gay, and he wronged the other man for pretending to be a woman.
    Nanu apolisi ndinu vindele. How logn shall you provoke the mob to challenge your authority and burn police stations simply because you can not stop defending the indefensible? Okay, thank satan that western education indoctrinates people into solving ice-tip part of problems. So, instead of blaming the state of failing to provide justice, educated fools are busy castigating the enlightened masses for preserving the accord of justice.
    Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] was right when he indicated that trustworthy people will be dispised, and liars will be believed; both literacy and ignorance will boom towards the end of earthly time.

    This male sex worker I know him from Mzuzu @ Sports Cafe’ back in early 2000. I met it again 2 weeks ago @ Bwindilo in company of numerous female sex workers also from Mzuzu who has dependent to Lilongwe in search of their new commodity buyers.

    Can someone confirm I hear that this male sex worker is a son f prominent CCAP pastor?

    THERE ARE SO MANY MEN IN MALAWI WHO DO SEX FOR MONEY WITH OTHER MEN ESPECIALLY WITH FOREIGN RESIDENTS AND FOREIGN TOURISTS.. A MAJORITY OF THESE
    MALAWIAN MEN ARE YOUNGER MEN AND SOME ARE EVEN MARRIED!…
    SEX TOURISM FOR GAY AND STRAIGHT PEOPLE IS BIG BUSINESS IN MALAWI AND AFRICA..

    THIS TRANSVESTITE (MAN DRESSED AS WOMAN) IS RISKING HIS LIFE BY DRESSING THIS WAY WHEN ITS EASY ENOUGH TO HANG OUT AT THE TOURIST HOT SPOTS (NB, CAPE MCCLEAR) WHERE ITS QUITE SIMPLE TO MEET GAY/BISEXUAL MEN ..

    A MAJORITY OF MALAWIAN MEN ARE HOMOSEXUALS BUT HIDING DUE TO THE LAWS.. BUT SOME DO SEX WITH FOREIGNERS AS THE RISK OF BEING CAUGHT BY THE LAW IS EXTREMELY LOW..

    What a sad country..

  25. Thanani nawo onse ochita mathanula, limenero sikhalidwe lathu kuno ku Malawi, chodabwitsa nchakuti omwe akulimbkitsa mchitidwe umenewu anakwatira mzimai, mukufuna kupusitsa ndani kodi??????

    Much as I don’t support homosexuality, I find the guys who wanted to administer mob justice as senseless and idiotic. So for you its okay for the promiscuous man and the faggort deserves death? What do you stand for?

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha . . .
    . . . This is very interesting . . .
    . . . Tsono iwe wati lero ulaweko nzungu? He he he he!
    . . . And instead of nzungu, you realised you were being coaxed into a gay-affair? Hi hi hi hi!!
    . . . Then thought the best thing to do was shout for help as if you were in danger? Ho ho ho ho!!!
    . . . Can life get any funnier than this? Hu hu hu hu!!!
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    When you hear stories of people consuming prostitutes in this era of wholesale contaminations, you realise that the biggest problem we have now in this world, is lack of brains.
    . . . Can anyone secure their hope on the thin line of a condom? which separates life and death? in the encounters with prostitutes? This is unfathomable!
    . . . The risk is just too high for the cloud-9 experience touted by connoisseurs of whores. This is a life-death encounter. And you cant always and for long, play safe, on that thin line.

    Unless you are already contaminated, no man, in their right frame of mind; should partake in this. Let us all love life – it is always worth living even in poverty and hopelessness.
