Phalombe pupil sexually abused for ‘bread and sugarcane’

A 35-years-old man is in police custody for allegedly defiling a 9-year-old school girl in Phalombe district.

John Msangwe a guard at Thuchila Estate is said to have sexually assaulted the girl on Thursday morning after he promised to buy her bread and sugarcane.

”The girl was sent back from school for being late and on her way home she met the suspect who told her to follow him so he could buy her bread and sugarcane,” National police publicist, Rhoda Manjolo told Nyasa Times.

Msangwe instead took the girl to a nearby pigeon peas garden where he sexually assaulted her.

”He threatened her not to shout or reveal the incident to anyone. The suspect ran away after committing the offence. The girl revealed the issue to well-wishers who found her crying,” explained Manjolo.

Medical report confirmed the girl was indeed defiled and the law enforcers managed to apprehend the suspect.

Msangwe will be charged with Defilement under Section 138 (1) of the Penal Code.

Msangwe hails from Chitimbe village, T/A Nkanda in Mulanje district.

    THESE ARE SIGNS OF THE END OF TIMES! IT IS INEXPLICABLE WHY AFTER ALL THE PUBLICITY THESE CRIMES GENERATE PEOPLE STILL DO NOT LEARN FROM OTHER PEOPLES MISTAKES. ITS ALS A CHALLENGE TO OUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS THAT A LOT STILL NEEDS TO BE DONE IN OUR PRAYER HOUSES.

    There are a number of points that I would like to make about this story of such a vile act.

    1. Why did the school send the girl away, if this is true, just for being late? Is the school a good time-keeper and what methods does it use to ensure arrival on time?

    2. The abuse of children is carried out in most, if not all, societies and cultures and so references to a particular group is an indication of prejudice.

    Very sad. On another note can we not just comment on the issue at hand without bringing in tribalism . We are fuelling division in this country of ours. We are all Malawians full stop. Whatever tribalism is there need not be encouraged. This is when I miss Kamuzu. He preached oneness through out his rule.

  14. Mr mfumusinyasa, defilement is for those who are underage whether agreed or not while rape is to those who are mature but use force without any agreement, mr Zeke they said 9 years old, si mutha kuwelenga kani. Alomwe ndi ntchito zawo kugwilira, lyk Gwaladi.
