‘Man of God’ arrested for sexual assualt in Balaka

Malawi Police in Balaka are keeping in custody Pastor Henry January for allegedly defiling a 15-year old girl, police have confirmed.

January, 39, of Zion Christian Church, had been ministering at an out church in the district when he met the girl and her mother.

According to Balaka Police publicist Joseph Sauka, the ‘Man of God’ had told the unsuspecting girl that he had a vision from God in which the Holy Spirit instructed him to pray for her in order to ward off an impending illness that would make the girl go mad.

The girl, now a mother of a two months old baby, was fourteen.

“The victim then went to stay with the suspect at his house where he started defiling her until she got pregnant months later,” said Sauka. “He threatened her not to reveal.”

Sauka said the issue reached the victim’s parents who took it to church elders and eventually reported the matter to the police.

January, who hails from Mbweya village in Traditional Authority (T/A) Chakhadza’s area in Dowa district has been charged with defilement for contravening section 138 (1) of the Penal Code.

  31. james says:

    Skilful abuse of the bible by the devil, the same way he tried it on the Invincible Jesus but he was a distant pale. With Eve he succeeded like in the present case.. parents please,please protect your lovely children. There are many wolves in Gods collars. I cant imagine a sane parent giving away a daughter to a man who i know has the capacity to turn his gun on her.

    I dont think this is possible. How can a 14yo girl be penetrated by 40yo? The 14yo scientifically is not penetrable to big stuff, no ways!! ndakana sizingatheke… release that man because you are lying. If it is true, then she is not 14, she is 18. Which is legal age for being ridden.

    Comment No. 15 please note that nobody is biased against Balaka. It is just that in Balaka there are reporters who have chosen to bring out these issues to the media. It does not mean Balaka is worse, it simply means issues like these are being highly covered in Balaka then the other districts.

  74. Likoma Economist says:

    I have always wondered why we call these defilers, devils in sheep skin, double-faced demons, “men of god”? Can you imagine this devil “prophesising and going deeper” into the frigile, vulnerable and tender body of this poor girl in the process messing up her future?
    I bet our learned judges, in their silly wigs, will give this desciple of satan a 3 year jail sentence while they give 14 years to two consenting adult gay couples!

  75. Jimbo says:
