Police arrest 3 Gule Wamkulu for sexual abuse

Malawi Police in Kasungu have arrested three Chewa tribe’s secret cult of gule wamkulu on allegations that they arrested a 16 year old girl and sexually abused her.



Police spokesperson in Kasungu Edna Mzikwitsa alleged parents of the girl had gone to gulewamkulu elders to help them trace the girl who had gone out on Christmas defying the parents order to stay at home.

She said gulewamkulu was immediately dispatched on the search mission and when she was found, she was forcibly taken to a dambwe, the headquarters of the cult in a specific area.

The police spokeslady alleged the elders ordered three boys aged between 16 and 20 to defile her in turns in their presence as a lesson to her to respect parental orders.

“The girl then reported the matter at Chulu police post who swiftly went to the village and arrested the boys,” said the publicist.

She said the girl complained that the boys did not use condoms therefore she was at risk of HIV/ AIDS, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

The unmasked nyau are on full remand at Kasungu police station awaiting their appearance in court after new year holiday to take plea.

The police say the three boys have allegedly said in their statements that this was part of their tradition and culture to forcibly have sex with disobedient girls.

chewas ll never change


i am friends to lots of chewa people but they are very gentle and civilised and Godfearing folks . I find it very irritating to relate this behaviour to them .They simply put do not subscribe to this kind of behaviour .They are pockets of few Chewa people who hide under the gule wamkulu cult for personal aggrandisement and not the interest of the general Chewa population and this sadly tarnishes the Chewa tribe .
