Masm suspends staff member over sexual abuse allegations

The Medical Aid Society of Malawi (Masm) says it has suspended one of its management team members over rape allegations.

Ngomwa: Suspended at Masm

In a statement, Masm chief executive officer, Sydney Chikoti says the medical aid organisation has suspended its chief commercial officer, Andrew Ngomwa.

This follows a defilement case that Ngomwa is currently answering.

He is alleged to have defiled his niece and allegedly infected her with HIV and AIDS.

He handed himself in to the police following allegations of defilement on his niece of less than 16-years-old.

Chikoti says the institution has policies that guide its operations and conduct of staff on sexual harassment.

He has since condemned that act of gender violence especially involving minors.

This comes at a time when the country is registering high cases of rape and defilement.

Mzuzu Central Hospital alone, has this year handled 119 defilement cases, director of Communications and Executive Assistant to the President, Sean Kampondeni has said.

Speaking in Mzuzu today at the Weekly Brief, Kampondeni said President Lazarus Chakwera has strongly condemned rape and defilement and has since sent a strong message to men that his administration will not tolerate defilement and rape.
