Malawi gay rights activists want gay man Gonani arrested

211

As Malawi24 first reported that Kevin Gonani was beaten by fellow members of the gay community for turning his 9 year old nephew into a sex slave and offering him for prostitution to other gay men, activists defending gays have condemned Gonani and advised government to have him arrested immediately.

Kelvin Gonani condemned by gay activists

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

In a statement, Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) and Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP), two organisations that have been fighting for decriminalisation of homosexuality commended members of the gay community who rescued the 9 year old victim from Gonani.

The two organisations said they are extremely alarmed at claims of sexual exploitation and abuse of a minor by Gonani.

“Sexual abuse and exploitation of the child in Gonani’s care is an extremely serious and worrisome accusation and it is crucial that this case is thoroughly and urgently investigated by relevant authorities. Much as we are interested in the promotion of equal rights and social justice in Malawi, we at CHRR and CEDEP do not condone any sexual abuse of children.  This is why we are calling for Mr Gonani to be promptly investigated and, if it is established that he indeed sexually exploited the child, he must be prosecuted,” reads part of a joint statement from the two organisations signed by CHRR’s Timothy Mtambo and CEDEP’s Gift Trapence.

Gonani was offering his 9 year old nephew for prostitution to be raped by other gay men. Gonani was once arrested last year for engaging in sexual activities with another man. CEDEP and CHRR mounted legal action in his support which led to Malawi President Peter Mutharika pardoning him and his co-accused. Mutharika then issued a presidential decree suspending all laws that criminalise homosexuality in the country, a decision that has been overturned by the High Court in Mzuzu.

Mtambo and Trapence have also called on government to make sure that boys are also protected from sexual abuse saying the current laws on child abuse assume that only girls are sexually abused.

  7. We can’t accept such malpractice happening in our country, human rights activists: Go and refund their money and tell them = we have refused.

  8. How can Malawi be called. A God fearing nation amidst corruption,Cashgate,nepotism,envy,luck of love,prostitutes, gays and we keep a deaf ear as if this has not deep rooted amongst. Us.?

  9. Timothy and Tranpence, you have now vindicated those who said homosexuality is the work of the devil. So you have rights to defile a 9 year boy? The arrests should be effected not only because they defiled this boy, but the same should be extended to evey gay or lesbian.

  10. A Mabungwe omwe mukuikira kumbuyo agaluwa a gay bcareful coz posachedwapa toyamba kuotcha ma office anuwo,bwanji inu azikazi anuwo osasiya nkutengana ndi mwamuna kapena mkazi nzanu becareful nonse!Tiotcha ndithu kapena chiwembu chinachake chikufikirani even God he is very angry with that khalidwe!

  12. Wina aphedwe ndi uyu akumati ku malawi kulibe azimayi okongola ose ali mmatenda. Then he goes on to attack anyone refusing to support gays. Threatening them kuti he has protection around him atha kutukwana umo angathele palibe angamuchite kathu. So far ma gay akungopanga zomwe akufuna mdziko muno mwachisawawa akumapanga zosezi amabungwe a ma gay akuonelera. Not so long ago a woman refused to give him a lift komatu nzimayi anatukwanidwa za nkabudula. After that mkukamutukwanaso pa wall pake where he feels thats his battle field. Zozezi a human rights ali duuu watching him

  13. Am not tryng to say wat thy are doin’ its right but i don’t think anyone of us is calfyd to judge anothr human being, so lets God do his job plz….

  17. even mr Timoth Mtambo he don,t know wat he is fighting 4.he likes money but not knowing dat he is here on earth to save Lord.my advise 2 him must put down his tools & repent,life is 2 short.hapy valentine.

  18. It’s really strange that gay articles attract more comments than news about women abuse, child marriage, albino killings, poverty, etc.

  19. Can you see the problem of these illuminants peope?.You give them rights but they are going beyond their rights and end up by abusing somebody’s right.Do they deserve to leave or die?.We gonna sort them out this is Malawi for real.

  20. if your dad was a gay and your mum was lesbo what right would you have to claim? devil at work thats the focal point even the devil himself is ashamed to habits of his followers .

  21. All gays must be arrested,the courts here in Malawi + the constituton of mw say so.only that it is abused by the top officials,so its all the gays kundende

  22. One of the more pressing issues for gay men is anal carcinoma (anal cancer).
    shigellosis and proctitis are both illnesses associated with gay bowel syndrome which may increase the chance of HIV infection. The term gay bowel syndrome angers homosexual activists as it associates homosexual acts with disease.

    Several recent studies have indicated the rate of anal dysplasia to be increasing in men with and without HIV. Ninety percent of men with HIV have the human papilomavirus (HPV), while 65% of men without HIV have HPV. HPV type 16 is the most troublesome for developing cancer and is found in a significant portion of gay men

  23. So thats ur trap huh………..if Govt intervenes and arrest the guy in topic for defilement…….u r the ones to report to donor community in a sour tone that Govt has arrested a gay man…………… Deal with it yourselves

  28. Why beating him and why should the government of malawi intervin in any issues concerning gay rights. As a citizen of malawi as far as i know malawi is a God fearing country and God never give a right to people of sodom and gomorah so why should malawi government support that sodomising act. If malawi government has to intervin it must arrest all members in that gay community because they dont have any right here in malawi to conduct that act of sodom

  29. Palibepo vuto apa , Trapence ndi Mtambo palibepo comwe alakwitsa chifukwa iwowo malamulo akuwadziwa azau-Gay waowo , ndekuti kutsata lamulo lawoo uyuyu anaphonyaa nazo paumunthu wao .
