Sexual assault victim four-year-old girl dies

Malawi Police in Chiradzulu district  are keeping in custody Gift Eraton,21, for defiling a four year old girl (name withheld) who later died after succumbing to severe internal bleeding in Malambo Village in Traditional Authority (T/A) Kadewere in the district.

According to the deceased’s aunt, Linda Lapukeni, the girl met her fate on 21 May when, together with her seven-year-old elder sister were sent by their grandmother to collect a pail from a nearby borehole at around 6 pm which the grandmother left behind.

“The grandmother, Marriam Frank, sent the girls to the borehole and on their way back, they met the suspect who dragged the victim into a garden of pigeon peas and defiled her. Eraton left the victim unconscious,” Lapukeni told the police.

She said the older girl escaped the ordeal and rushed to the village to alert the elders about the matter.

At the scene, the suspect managed to overpower the elders and run away, but was apprehended by the police on 22 May.

A medical report from Chiradzulu District Hospital revealed that the girl died later due to internal bleeding as her private part was severely damaged.

According to Chiradzulu Police, Eraton admitted to have committed the crime and will appear before court to answer murder charges.

Meanwhile, Chiradzulu Police are advising parents and guardians not to allow children to walk alone during odd hours.

I cried reading this one. I have a four year old daughter myself, my only child and i will spend the rest of my life worrying for her safety. I will always be on the guard for men such as that monster who ravaged that poor little girl to death. Life in prison is too easy for that scumbag, free food and playing bawo for the rest of his life is not justice that fits the crime he commited, but knowing that he is kept away from hurting others is some small comfort.
