Police in Mzuzu have detained a 19 year old man identified as Christopher Jamu who is suspected to have sexually abused a 12 year old boy at Chibavi Township.
Police publicist for the city said that Jamu is suspected to have lured the boy to his boys’ quarter with 50 Kwacha and then did what his libido demanded him to do.
The victimized boy, whose identity has been withheld, told Malawi24 that he was sodomised for close to three rounds and he complied because the suspect promised him another 50 Kwacha.
“My friends call me aunt Tiwo as a result of what happened. It’s really becoming difficult for me to concentrate at school,” said the child.
Police say the case at hand goes contrary to section 153 (a) of the penal code and the suspect is expected to appear in court soon to answer sodomy charges.
Jamu hails from Mwase village traditional authority Kaomba in Kasungu.
