People of Mzuzu were reportedly treated to free drama when ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) treasurer for the Northern Region, Happy Kumwenda was caught red-handed having sex with a married woman.
Police officers were called to the scene and the treasurer, who was previously shot, has since been arrested.
“He was caught indulging in sex with a married womman and there was some breach of peace,” a police officer in Mzuzu told Nyasa Times. He could not be named because he is not authorised to speak to the media.
Police said they picked him for safety.
Meanwhile, Minister of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare Patricia Kaliati has made headlines for hitting out at Malawian men who spend time on social media instead of romancing their wives.
Kaliati said some men spend most of their time chatting on social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook and working on their computers, ignoring their wives.
“You are on your WhatsApp while your wife is there beside you. Is that why you married her? Stop that and go to bed with your wive,” Kaliati is quoted saying during commemoration of International Women’s Day in Nkhata Bay.
Quoting the Holy Bible, the minister who is a church going Catholic, said it was clear that the Scriptures did not call upon women to love their husbands, but men to love their wives and the women to be submissive.
“For some time now, we have been referring to men as children; but I think it is now time to call them soil because that is where we were made from their [men’s] ribs. Tatopa nawo akuzolowera [We have had enough of their abuse],” Kaliati is quoted saying.
