Mlogera is  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) councillor for Chibanja Ward in Mzuzu City.

A grim-looking Mlogera was told to remain on remand o protect him from an irate mob and relatives who were baying for his blood..

He is accused of making three girls drunk and defiling each one of them.  Two girls  aged 16 and one aged 15.

His lawyer Diverson Kadzipatike said Mlogera  will be exonerated of these charges.

Mlogera was also recently dragged to court for allegedly duping a businessperson, Mustaffa Casim, of K1.6 million.

According to a statement of claim made by Casim’s lawyer, Leonard Mbulo, the councillor in July this year got the money to help Casim purchase a vehicle from Be Forward Japan but never bought the vehicle.

But Mlogera suspected political influence on the matter. He said he did a clean business with Casim and he is surprised that he is being dragged to court.

Mlogera is not a native of the North – why allow such barbaric foreigners to be councilors of Mzuzu? Is Chibanja ward full of foreigners too? Look what is happening!

This guy is victim of politics. Several political gurus dont wish him well after managing to win on MCP ticket in an area that was least expected.

Do not rash into defending him. Let the court process be done and we may end up defending a culprit if the medical reports indicate that he indeed slept with the three girls
