Balaka Police spokesperson Sub inspector Joseph Sauka said they arrested the suspect John Mpinganjira after a complaint on the matter.

“The mother of the victim, told police that during break time the suspect took the girl to Chingeni Trading centre where she was promised to be bought drinks.  Upon arrival at the Trading Centre, the victim was bought rice and a drink before being taken to the rest house where she was defiled,” says Sauka.

Sauka says after being defiled, the victim was given K500.00 so that she should not reveal the ordeal but the victim reported the issue to her mother who in turn reported the issue to Balaka Police Staion.

Medical report obtained from Balaka District Hospital revealed that the victim has lost her virginity.

Meanwhile, the suspect has been remanded to Ntcheu Prison and is expected to appear before court soon where he will answer a case of defilement of girls under the age of 16 years which is contrary to section 138(1) of the Penal code.

John Mpinganjira who has served as a teacher for 20 years comes from Nankhumwa village, Traditional Authority Juma in Mulanje district.

    The 12 yr old kid… drinks and lunches with sir … walks alone into a rest house room (or was she pullef into it?). What was on her mind? The kid enticed the inocent mpinganjira … Lost virginity, u said? …. was this her first time? My many doubts! Anagwirizana kuti akapange chiwerewere awiriwa. Actually, the 12yr (the age I hardly believe, for I know people can twist ages to implicate victims) … she was telling her mother hoping for marriage not actually complaining aftet consenting to good sex. She didnt even raise an alarm in the room apart from mourning with pleasure
