Police arrested Zakeyu Mapira, on August 13 2019, and charged him with abduction of a 13-year-old girl and failing to provide necessities to a child.

But Apostolic church  members clad in their usual white robes  rallied at Ndirande police  station with placards demanding the release of their member.

They kept chanting to police officers “Holy Ghost fire!”

Ndirande Police spokesperson, Edna Mzingwitsa, said police dispersed those church members but they said they will come back for  vigils.

Mzingwitsa  said Mapira was arrested for allowing  the marriage of a 13-year-old girl to his 22-year-old son without the consent of the parents of the girl.

“The girl, who is pregnant, was being kept in the church’s tent and her parents were denied a chance to be taking her to the hospital for antenatal care,” she said.

The police spokesperson said Zakeyu Mapira’s  son, who has defilement charges to answer, is at large..

Zakeyu Mapira, 42, is from Chalingana Village, Traditional Authority Changata in Thyolo District.

There must be a rule forcing everyone to attain a college diploma. How can a logical man keep such a teenager as a wife. How can a whole spirit filled man make push-up on such a minor and lost himself in sexual ecstasy with such lad ?.Sex is sacred and for adults-this is an act of defilement,malicious and evil . And if atheist say God does not exist you think that is not rational? These group is full of barbaric,intoxicated-brain washed men and must be (though their is freedom of conscience) be abolished.
