Sex for fun: Girls’ hostels turned into ‘brothels’ in Mzimba

285

At a time when girls in Malawi are bieng urged to pull up their socks on education, breath taking revelations show that self-boarding girls at Luviri Community Day Secondary School in Mzimba district have turned their hostels into “brothels, Malawi24 has established.

When we visited the institution on Thursday, girls confessed that they sleep with men in their houses – which are used as hostels – during night hours in a bid to find pocket money for their daily upkeep.

They told our reporter that since they live away from their school authorities, they trade their business freely without intermissions.

“In fact we thought you were our customer but anyway that’s how we live here. We manage to find our daily upkeeps by trading our bodies,” confessed a 17 year-old Form three girl.

Our reporter found out that the girls are free because they are self-boarding in some tiny houses which are meters away from the school thus teachers are not aware of the girls’ behavior.

“We negotiate with some drivers and strangers who can afford to pay for our cheap services. We just want to find money since sometimes our groceries do not last long.,” added another 16 year-old girl who is in Form two. The situation has since attracted most drivers who travel long distances without enjoying their women because they find their comfort in these school girls. According to information our reporter saw, out of 35 girls who enrol in Form one at the institution, only 9 manage to sit for Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE). “Most of them end up dropping out of school before even reaching Form two. Some flee to trading centres to become prostitutes while some end up being impregnated by their clients,” said Gabriel Chizimba one of the teachers at the school. He added that the situation has not spared most of the community day secondary schools across the district where girls are self-boarding.

Nevertheless, education authorities in the district claimed to be unaware of the problems facing such schools because head teachers do not report the issues to their offices

. District education manager for Mzimba, Lemani Mvula said he is unaware of the state of affairs because no report on the matter has so far reached his office.

“I hear about that from you but before, I didn’t have any idea on that because no report has since reached my office on the same,” he said.

Meanwhile, traditional leaders in the area have urged government and some stakeholders to come in quickly to help overcome the problems.

  2. People with no vision can say whatever. Think and you will not regret in life. Zip up the mouth if you haves nothing to avoid embarrassment.

  3. this is exactly what system promote,sad enough every body knows teenage got aheart to exprol things,then you allow them selfboardin @this age n time.Workup Mzimba workup parents only your kids are condemned here,still waitin for indiviual to change your situation is not gonna happen,na nang’anga yinga wovwila apo yayi #teachingsofH.I.M good over evil

  4. This is a serious issue do not regionalise it please!! This happens almost everywhere in Malawi where the girls are staying at safeboarding!!!

  5. Though not a pleasant remedy but otherwise that’s the only choice you’re left with when cornered by poverty. Government should kindly slash TAXES by 40% to make essentials more affordable mostly to the poor who are always mentioned but never considered.

    • Very true and reasonable. There are alot of cries by poor people but our opt not to pay attention to them. The government should consider the poor people in making its policies for governing this country, otherwise, the gap will still be widening between the illiterates and the literates and between the poor and the rich.

  27. Self Boarding is not safe 4 a girls becoz there are weak in mind & making proper decision.The other contributing factor is from parents, they give them little money for their daily rations,how can they survive? Thats why they fall into temptation.They do it not becoz they want it,but inspite of the hardships they are passing thru. but the

  29. Useless and felling people are always do like that but main reason of gvt to build the hostels was not that more over we encouraged to take part in such behaviour while some of us we come from poor families what feature are we set this is what we call mindless sheeeemmmm

  30. This is the case in most of the schools where girls are doing self boarding. In most parts of the country. Low income of the rural communities is the major cause.

  31. hahahahaha sangakhalenso ena oposa atumbuka,atumbukatu pano chigololo anachimva kukoma ndamene akugawa matenda awa a Edzi mziko muno eshii! Mtundu uwu uhule ndie wagundika kuswana ngati nkhumba ndiawa angoti mbwee mu lilongwe ndi blantyre mu ofunika boma liyambepo anthu amenewa adziyenda ndi mapasport mu blantyre muno komanso adzikhala ndi ziphatso za u citizenship awonjeza heavy

  32. Theres a difference between people who want education to help there country and fellow country men, and those who just want money and/or fame. I think we all know which one is abundant in Malawi.

  33. oifuna skulu ndinawadziwa ine, amenewo mzofuna kusowa mahostel sichifukwa chopanga uhure, i realy feel sorry for them. Again the gvt should try to their very best to build hostel for them and empower this girls.
