Police spokesperson in Kasungu Edna Mzikwitsa alleged parents of the girl had gone to gulewamkulu elders to help them trace the girl who had gone out on Christmas defying the parents order to stay at home.

She said gulewamkulu was immediately dispatched on the search mission and when she was found, she was forcibly taken to a dambwe, the headquarters of the cult in a specific area.

The police spokeslady alleged the elders ordered three boys aged between 16 and 20 to defile her in turns in their presence as a lesson to her to respect parental orders.

“The girl then reported the matter at Chulu police post who swiftly went to the village and arrested the boys,” said the publicist.

She said the girl complained that the boys did not use condoms therefore she was at risk of HIV/ AIDS, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

The unmasked nyau are on full remand at Kasungu police station awaiting their appearance in court after new year holiday to take plea.

The police say the three boys have allegedly said in their statements that this was part of their tradition and culture to forcibly have sex with disobedient girls.

    i am friends to lots of chewa people but they are very gentle and civilised and Godfearing folks . I find it very irritating to relate this behaviour to them .They simply put do not subscribe to this kind of behaviour .They are pockets of few Chewa people who hide under the gule wamkulu cult for personal aggrandisement and not the interest of the general Chewa population and this sadly tarnishes the Chewa tribe .

    There is more than what meets the eye in this article. Since when has gule wamkulu started to be used for searching for lost deviant children? The parents here are acomplice. They created a favorable ground for their daughters ordeal.

  11. Kunta says:

    At least nothern tribes are exempted from this madness

  12. English Guru says:

    Maybe the parents are themselves members of gulewamkulu and they knew this would happen that is why they sought gulewamkulu’s help to find the girl in the first place. They wanted their daughter punished in this way. They are not the ones complaining to police, the girl is doing this on her own. While I do not condone chikdren to disobey their parents, but this girl’s parents’ conduct in this matter is shameful and they too deserve arrest.

  14. Mtundu Wanga says:

    These are the people we should be concerned about, not gays. Ma gay samalakwira munthu. But these nyau idiots always terrorize innocent people. Attacking and raping a 16 year old is just beyond! Yet the uncivilized Malawians will smile at this saying it’s part of our culture. Instead they train all their guns on gays, who can’t harm a fly!

  15. No Laughing Matter says:

    This awful tradition must certainly be revised. It is brutal and defies logic many a times. Those who advocate to it must just do their own thing instead of intimidating others. Let their rights not interfere with the rights of those who just want to be in peace.Why should fear to go anywhere when they are around?

    Very good nyau the girl needed to be tought a lesson
    Leave chewas alone you southerners pigs

  21. Pimpozi says:

    That girl is a hero. Her parents, nyau elders and the boys are shameles vilains. By the way? Why does government allow these chewa nyau people to disturb other peoples peace nilly willy like this? Anthu angokhalira kukhapidwa, kuberedwa, kuthamangitsidwa makukamu osalakwa ati in the name of vilombo really? MCP is really a brutal entity.

    Very barbaric and backward culture. The police should also arrest and charge the elders who sanctioned the defilement with conspiracy to commit a criminal offense. Shame on the elders of chewa gulewankulu.

  27. Do you discipline a girlchild by raping and fucking her? Oooo what kind of culture is this? Chewa people wakeup please. This act is pure rape and they must not disguise it as culture. Jail them for 14 years as the law is above the so called “culture”. HIV and pregnancy are not jokes-tu. Achewa mudakadzolabe manyi in this postmodern era? Shaame shaame!

  38. pwiya wa pwiya says:

    Malawians, you have heard by yourself. If this is the case, what kind of culture is this one? this is worse than gay practice. Th courts will definately arrest these guys for rape and they will rote in prison. Life imprisonment for rape!!!

    The boys should be put in jail including the elders. They have no right to rape or sexually abuse any girl or woman under the pretext of culture or as a form of punishment. These boys should be jailed for rape and the elders for assisting in the crime.

  49. Safari Wakumudzi says:

    are such traditions still in existence in our midst? Eish, it’s a disgrace to the nation and ofcourse, members of Gule Wamkulu!

    Although we sometimes fail to get good grades in school, we should appreciate the education that makes us better understand the world around us and rules of life and interaction.
    For lack of education:
    . . . the Nyau knows not of existence of other worlds, cultures, peoples or the need for respect; but his own.
    . . . the Nyau is so isolated hence oblivious of the world of laws around it.
    . . . the Nyau is so lost in his closed small brain hence takes orders salubriter; with no regard to the consequences therefrom.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    I can’t want to imagine being a girl/lady n forcefully browsed by a dingy, malodorous and dirty Nyau stick, let alone 3 sticks. Disgusting! I feel for 16 year-old girl.

    Let custodians/elders of this culture or cult bring the Nyau to school. Alternatively, govt may wish to take education to the Nyau, not for good grades; but for the good of our country and healthy interaction. Otherwise, its a hazard to live among these uncivilised and uncultered zinjanthropuses, in this era and age.
