Ambokire was arrested on Tuesday by the Blantyre police according to the city’s police spokesperson Augustus Nkhwazi.

The arrest comes as Women Lawyers Association have embarked on a fight against gender based violence.

Nkhwazi has identified the ‘baby mama’ as Lina Musopole.

He said Salim has been arrested after the Musopole lodged a complaint  that she was assaulted by the accused on December 1.

Nkhwazi said Musopole also reported that the accused had spread a chemical (Doom) on her face.

This comes barely days after another lady, believed to be Salim’s girl friend claimed she was brutally assaulted  by Salim towards November end.

Pictures posted in social media space showed the woman was heavily assaulted and suffered bruised eyes and had her mobile phone completely broken during the fracas.

“Yes, he is in our custody now. His wife came yesterday complaining that she has been assaulted by Ambokire since 1 December, 2020,” said Nkhwazi.

Previously, Salim also assaulted the woman he had two children with and she relocated out of the country to UK after she could not get protection from local security.

Ndipo throw away the keys. let him see nyekhwe. He should be raped, turned into someone wife there and get beaten. He should understand that women need love and care too. They are not punching bags.

Any man who can do this to a woman, to the extent of spraying doom to the woman’s face, is no man at all.

Bravo police, this is a positive development, he is a repeat offender so we don’t expect the judge to grant him bail just like that. This man needs to be rehabilitated. Let him spend sometime there in jail, instead of being a bedroom bully he will thereafter focus on his career and be a responsible citizen of this nation.

if our rule of law is to be respected, such individuals need to be punished. malamulo sanapangire osauka okha, kapena osaphuzira okha ayi. for GBV to end such air brains need to be punished kuti anthu wena aphuzilirepo. pali wanthu ambiri akuvutika mmanyumbamu koma amaona kuti olo atapita ku polisi palibe chomwe chizachitike.

He will get bail and nothing will happen as usual. The only main problem I see here is the Law Society. How many times has its members misbehaved, or broken the laws and still continue to practise? Don’t they have a code of conduct? May be if they enforce their code of conduct, there will not be any lawyer remaining.

Bravo to the law enforcement forces for nabbing this bastard. He is the definition of impunity and arrogance. He has always thought that he can get away with his violent ways against women, that he can bribe his victims into not reporting his savagery to the police. He is a shame to his profession and to all educated men.
