The teacher, Frank Chitseko is also accused of aiding the 13 year-old (name withheld) to abort a pregnancy.

Chitseko of T/A Kaduya in Phalombe and a teacher at Phaloni primary school, is alleged to have been in a secret love affair with the
victim since 2013 when she was in standard six.

“The girl had been hiding this from her parents until on October 18th this year when the news came to light. On this day the girl left home
and told her parents she was going for classes. The parents were surprised as it was Saturday,” explained Phalombe Police Publicist,
Surgeant Augustus Nkhwazi.

Nkhwazi told Nyasa Times that the parents were later told that the girl was seen being carried on a bicycle by the suspect to Chiringa
trading centre.

“Later in the day when she came back, she was quizzed by her parents and she confessed to have been to Chiringa with
the said teacher but said nothing on the purpose of the trip,” Nkhwazi said.

It was on Wednesday 22nd October, when the girl started complaining of abdominal pains and was discovered by her mother that she had vaginal bleeding.

When the parents quizzed her, the girl confessed to have had an abortion with the aid of the teacher.

“She revealed to her parents had been dating Chitseko and that he was the one responsible for the pregnancy.”

The victim was taken to Migowi Health Centre where she was referred to Holly Family Mission Hospital where she is currently admitted.

Nkhwazi said Chitseko is in custody waiting to appear before court to answer charges of Defilement and
Aiding Abortion contrary to Sections 138 and 149 of the Penal Code respectively.

No boo.


I can’t believe some people on this site are blaming the child. This is statutary rape. As the adult he should have been more responsible. What if it was his daughter who had been sexually abused by an adult and forced to have an abortion? Blaming a child for the actions of an adult…a 40 year old adult is disgusting.


What a shame!with all ladies lingering around why you chose to go out with this one.

Dear magistrate/ whoever is gonna reside mlandu umenewu,

Please slap this devil with the maximum sentence! Animals like him have no place in our society. They need to be locked up and throw away the key. Disgusting.

senzo zondo

alomwe kutota kwambiri mpaka kumanyenga tiwana. ndiye winawe ndi umbuli wakowo nkumati there is no defilement since zinali zogwirizana, one thing you should bear on your useeless mind is that sleeping with a girl of 13 years and below is defilement and in law they say ‘consent is immaterial’ coz the girl is not old enough to make a sound decision especially on sexual matters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
