Shaibu Kaliati: Accused of enganging in sexual activity with girl, 16

Kaliati was arrested on Friday for sexual activity with an underage girl.

He allegedly has a sexual act with a 16 year old girl from Bambino Private Schools at Annies Lodge in Lilongwe while parliament was meeting.

Msowoya did not say which charge Kaliati is answering but confirmed to the eager House that Kaliati was out on bail having spent the whole weekend at Lingadzi police station.

Both the Legal Affairs Committee of parliament and the UDF, a party that sponsored him into the House, said the law should take its course.

Kaliati is said to have sneaked out of parliament during tea break around 11 am on Friday and was allegedly spotted with the minor whom he allegedly gave K6000 after sexual intercourse.

Salima North-West MP Jessie Kabwila (Malawi Congress Party-MCP) asked the Speaker to provide more details on the arrest.

“What has happened to Honourable Shaibu [Kaliati]? Has he been suspended? What is his status of now? and his status in the House,” wondered Kabwila.

Kabwila also said it was shocking as MP Kaliati was part of the passing of the Marriage, Divorce and Family Relations Bill into law found himself contravening the same law.

“I mean the MP was part of the Divorce Bill and he goes and does the very same things in conflict with the Bill? What is the position?” said Kabwila.

Speaker Msowoya said Kaliati is “an innocent man unless otherwise stated.”

We should also teach our girls to be responsible. I am sure, this is not her first time to sleep with an old man. After sleeping with an old HIV positive man, she will sleep with a boy here age and pass on the virus. With such behavior, HIV/AIDS will be part of our life for many years to come.

Stick to your lover and protect young girls. Koma sure kuthawa parliament in session kukawongola msana pa kasungwana? Dovu lake lotani?

Zoona Zimenezi?

Iwe Kabwila-Kapasula: Go and research the answers to the stupid questions you are asking the Speaker. I thought you assume you are one of the most educated elites in that House?
Indeed, every one is innocent until found legally guilty, as the Speaker has said, regardless of the gravity of the case. Your tone seems to presume MP Kaliati is guilty, a priori.
