Is this really a crime? A girl at 19 getting pregnant and the man responsible is arrested? Is this arrest legal? The laws of Malawi says a “minor” is any person under the age of 18. Unless, the police tells the nation that it was rape in itself then people can understand, otherwise, let her deliver and come back to school. At 19, a girl is able resist advances of the teacher because she is deemed to be an adult and not a minor.
