Bishop Manguluti arrested for sexual attack on adopted daughter – Malawi police

Mlaei Police say they are keeping in custody Joseph Manguluti, who is famous for being a gospel musician, preacher as well as a master of ceremonies on allegations that he raped a 23 year old adopted daughter.

‘Bishop’ Manguluti: In custody

The self-styled  bishop was arrested on Tuesday, according to Lingadzi Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Constable Foster Benjamin .

Benjaminh said Manguluti, popularly known as Bishop Joe Manguluti, allegedly raped the girl on May 15, 2017 in her bedroom at their Area 18 B residence.

The girl, who is a fourth year student at one of the colleges in Lilongwe City, was preparing to take a bath when she met her ordeal.

On the day when the rape took place, Manguluti’s wife was away and this prompted him to take advantage of the situation and force himself on the girl.

The victim reported the incident to the police who issued her a referral letter to Kamuzu Central Hospital for examination where a medical report indicated that the victim had indeed been raped.

Police have since charged Bishop Manguluti with rape which is contrary to Section 132 of the Penal Code and he is expected to appear before court soon.

Manguluti hails from Kalimira Village in Traditional Authority (TA) Santhe in Kasungu District.

    Lets pray for the girl you people. Imagine she was your daughter. On the side of the Mangulutis , they need deliverance because his sister called Chrissie who works at Toyota Malawi destroys marriage and kills men.

    I’m disturbed. I love Joseph manguluti. I like him. We have a merciful and gracious Lord. No sin is bigger than the grace. We are still loving you our bishop. God is more than able to forgive us.

    That is why Jesus said let those who have never sinned before cast the first stone, they all left leaving the woman and jesus. Now we pipo we are always quick to judge even musanamveko mbali inayo, it is a shame! We do not know what happened actually, medical report yathu is very poor anangoona kuti kumeneko kunalowa chinthu basi police zingwe kalekale, anayeza DNA? 23 yrs kunyengedwa asakufuna, sure? So many questions. Mulungu ndamene amakhululukila munthu basi palibe tchimo lalikulu kuposa limzake ndichimodzi modzi basi! Mwina ndi plot imeneyi!

    HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF;

    This issue is complicated and I see a demonic bondage from the Bishop’s father in law. First it was the Bishop’s wife TNM’s Managing Executive Phyllis Bowazi Manguluti raped and impregnated by her own Dad when she was 13 yrs old in Thyolo and gave life to a daughter who has recently been married. Moving forward now it is a Phyllis husband raping the adopted daughter……mmmmh chiwanda chopasilana. But I should say, I am very disturbed by this story having known the Bishop and his greater family.
    I pray that the family should be strong and support the Bishop; Let the adopted daughter withdraw the charge, afterall the Bishop has done a lot to her

    My final hope is that this story is not true and I wish Joe all the best to win this story in court

  28. Blessed Banda says:

    Are you sure that rape took place on 15 May and arrest was done or 23rd?? Fake and staged news. The girl must have been going out with someone else

  29. Benard says:

    Not all the Bishops are sent by Gods. They put on the color when they are in church service but once comes out they remove everything. They pretend to be man of God while in church but all are prostitutes.

  30. nanyati nanyati says:

    What a stupid idiot undergraduate. At 23 years of age you never shouted for help!? Im sure this is all fake. You definately have a score to settle with your step dad after raising you up all these 23 years. By the way was a DNA test conducted on the semen to prove that its mangulutis? This stupid, silly, prostitute nicompop might have been plain fucked elsewhere, went to the police, then hospital to implicate a presumably innocent man. Go to hell!! God should punish you by failing your final exams, you ungratefull undergraduate PROSTITUTE!!!

    1. saliro says:

      shaa, mwalankhulatu ngati munaliko. phuzo mkati, ngati mtsikanayo mumamudziwa. blaming the viictim eti!

    2. Zoona says:

      You are the most stupid man in this world no wonder your wife fucks the whole city. You want this girl to show gratitude by keeping quite after being defiled by this stupid he goat? Such men should have their member removed they give men a bad name. There are just too many women starved of sex why not go for them. An adopted daughter is just as good as your biological daughter unless it was not a legal adoption. But even then if you raise a girl under your roof in our culture she is your child agalu inu.

      1. well said and argued, abwana. any reasonable human being cannot agree more!!!!!!!!

    3. Nanyati Nanyati

      Its you who is stupid. very stupid.
      1. You dont know the meaning of Rape. Thats follishness number 1.
      2. The victim has not been with them for the 23 years.
      3. She is a very intelligent girl and God fearing lady unlike other college girls. She is a lady of principles.
      4. If you are related to Rapist just ask them no to take advantage of the poor child. God is watching.

  31. Kate says:

    Finally this man is paying for his sins. Apart from being a rapist he is also a fraud. May he rot in jail

    1. Kholowa mkabudula says:

      Inunso a kate anakuchitanikonso? Kuchita kulankhula choncho????

      1. Kate says:

        He ate deposit money for mc services. We had agreed 10percent we gave him deposit and he changed conditions 2 weeks to my wedding we cancelled the deal and he refused to return the deposit money. He is now paying for his sins. Let him rot in jail
