…fellow gays beat Gonani for prostituting his 9 year old nephew

In what was earlier dubbed to be violence against gays, Malawi24 has established that a gay man in Lilongwe was not beaten for his sexual orientation.

Man beaten for'being gay' in Malawi

Gonani offered 9 year old boy to be raped by 43 year old gay man

According to multiple sources that spoke to Malawi24 investigative journalists, the man who was earlier said to have suffered the serious injuries for his being homosexual was actually beaten by fellow homosexuals and not because he is gay.

“Everyone knows that Kelvin Gonani (the man) is a homosexual and nobody has bothered to beat him up. The issue was that he was offering his nephew for prostitution and that is the reason why he was beaten up,” said a source contradicting the information spread by activist Billy Mayaya that Gonani was beaten by a mob for being gay.

“What happened is that Gonani was offering a 9 year old nephew to a fellow gay man in Biwi, the man is in his 40s. This did not go down well with his fellow gays who felt that he was tarnishing their image and they started beating him up,” said another source.

Malawi24 has established that Kelvin Gonani was offering his 9 year old nephew to a 43 year old gay man Joe Pafupi who wanted to rape the nephew for a fee that would go into Gonani’s pockets. It was after the news had reached other gays that they decided to attack Gonani.

However last night Facebook had been awash with the story that Gonani had been attacked by a mob at Crossroads for his sexual orientation.

“Nothing could be further from the truth than that. The attack had nothing to do with his sexual orientation and we are actually asking the police to apprehend Gonani for child trafficking and Pafupi should be arrested for related crimes,” said another source.

In the wake of the rumours that Gonani had been beaten for being gay however most Malawians took to social media to approve of the beating while others condemned it strongly.

  1. After reading comments; I seriously have to question about the “Warm Heart of Africa” Malawians uphold and whether there truly is fair and just legal system? How can one truly compare child prostitution to being gay? As if being gay is a crime.
    Such ignorant homophobia comments are backed up against patriotism and religion but in the same breath go against both.
    Even the reporting sticks of rumour than professional reporting.

  2. All we want is to kill them this is just the begining. Uk and all the countries who are happy in gays, just come and pick you friends here in Malawi to your countries. We dont want this fa***n gays here all else we are going to kill them all. I am happy with the people who show this man this man the truth of #MALAWI. Wake up,, wake up,, wake up, Malawi

  3. The matter is, whether he was beaten for being gay or not, we dont want to hear or see this nosense here in MW & America must know this. Let Malawi be Mw. And the asamunda (as Bingu used to say) shud practice it in their own land. Zikuwayenera kkk

  4. Abusing a 9 yr old nephew is a crime again, Gonani must face the law on two counts.1 being a guy in malawi.2 abusing a 9 yr old nephew.Waiting for his immediate arrest.

  10. He is a bloody bastard!!jst the same nje if he was beaten coz of being gay or abusing the nephew doesnt make any difference the thing is he is a bastard must go to hell

  11. Ignore this post you Obama, UK,EU and those countries and organizations which lobby for minority rights. The fact is we indeed beat this guy for being a gay and these persons will be killed mercilessly here in Malawi. The best way you come and pick them all to your countries

  12. That’s why we are saying no to homosexuality. These guys are sick and do not think straight. How can a man in his right senses offer a 9 year old boy for prostitution for his own benefit. These people need spiritual deliverance.Many of the evil acts in our midst are being perpetrated by them.
