‘Bishop’ Manguluti: Face rape charge

The court also denied to grant him bail fearing that he might jeopardize the with witnesses.

Manguluti, remanded at Maula Prison, was also scheduled to reappear before the court for the continuation of bail hearing.

“He applied for bail yesterday (Thursday), but the court declined to grant him bail. However, the court is today expected to make a ruling whether to grant him bail or not,” said Lingadzi Police Publicist Benjamin Foster.

He said they completed their investigations that’s the case was committed to court.

“I cannot give more details at the moment, lets wait until the court makes determination on his bail application,” he said.

Manguluti, also a well known musician and master of ceremonies mainly at weddings receptions, allegedly raped the girl on May 15 in her bedroom at their Area 18B residence in Malawi’s administrative capital.

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

According to Lingadzi Police, the mother of the house was not around when the ‘man of God’ forced himself on the girl to eat the ‘forbidden fruit’.

The victim reported the incident to the police who issued her a referral letter to Kamuzu Central Hospital for examination. Medical report indicated that the victim had really been sexually attacked.

Manguluti hails from Kalimira Village in Traditional Authority (T/A) Santhe in Kasungu.

    Shame indeed. Anthu sumadziwa kuchita judge ndi kudzudzula tchimo. Why spoiling a young lady’said future ndikusazigwira. You adopt a daughter then you think that one as wife on the other hand? That’s bad. Masiku omaliza.

    Where is the live of God here? Instead of praying for him and thegirl we are busy judging.Thou shall not judge the word of God says! Are we saints ourselves as we are judging this man? What if all this is faked guys? 14 yrs in malawian jails is same as death. Those who really know this guy are giving it 5% chance of him doing this. He had no reason to do that if u calculate him properly. We are just human its only God who knows the truth,himself,wife and and the girl. But let the truth prevail this is not fun! This victim was supposed to have a dna test so that we should be sure this man had his manhood in the site for proper judgement. Munthu ukamachita bwino anthu sayamika,ukasauka ayinso you are a laughing stalk, abale inu! Its just my prayer That God himself should reveal the truth of the matter.

    A statement like “forbidden fruit” is not necessary to b included in serious traumatic stories like these because they sound funny and disrespectful to the survivors/victims.

    God have mercy on us. Lord help us to overcome temptations. Forgive our sins as well.
    I admire him as a good musician but not as an Apostle.

    This story is false and Bishop gonna win the case. The issue is simple. The Bishop is impotent as he suffers from Erectile Dysfunction due to BP and Diabetic drugs he takes daily. This proves that the Bishop cannot and did not fuck the daughter

    1. Oluma Alume says:

      Achipatala apeza bwanji. Umuna kuthako kwamwanako. I Know this Bishop he did the same thing last time but the wife shielded him, and convinced the girl not to open the mouth. This is the second time no chance for him washosha wolakwika. So please keep quiet. Think if it was your daughter, sister niece aunt mother or friend. A place police are not fool. A person is charged on rape charges after the confirmation from hospital or approved lab. Let him face Justice

    Osachipatsa bail ichi. Mubwereso kuno kwa Biwi, kuli winaso Luka Tchoka, wa Christ Citadel Church akuchinda his niece taking advantage of economic vulnerability of the niece since she is an orphan. He is a relentless vagina hunter whose sexual exploits need to be properly gazetted. In fact his high level zwatu zwatu exploits and machindidwe.com needs to be recorded in guiness book of records. The guy can duck mercilessly and thoroughly without any iota of shame and mercy on innocent young girls whose life and rights are being stuffed and put in danger by people of such character. In fact it’s high time government introduced a policy to reward innocent girls who are victims of such Tchokas and Mangulutis behavior.
