Malawi Police in Kasungu have arrested a 21 year old man for abducting a secondary school girl, locked her in in a room for five hours whilst repeatedly sexually abusing her.
Kasungu police station publicist Edna Mzingwitsa said Chikwamao Mambo abducted the 17 year old girl around 8:30 Sunday evening as she was coming from studying at Khota community day secondary school.
Mzingwitsa said the girl used to go to the school in the evenings to study in preparation for her junior certificate examinations which are due in a few months time.
The police publicist said on Sunday she met Mambo on her way back home and allegedly abducted and repeatedly raped her, triggering fears he might have impregnated het or worse still infecting her with HIV.
Deputy head-teacher at the secondary school Winason Chaomba described the incident as “unfortunate.”
