According to Kaponda, the woman’s daughter was diagnosed with TB and on Friday she went to Nkhotakota hospital to collect medicine for the girl.

RapeAt the hospital she met the suspect at TB Ward who told her to go to the examination room and wait for him.

The wicked nurse later followed the woman to the room and locked the door.

He then started caressing the woman’s breast and thighs. At that point the victim shouted for help and the nurse let her go.

The woman however reported the matter to the District Health Officer and later the police were told.

The suspect comes from Phale Village Traditional Authority Khombedza in Salima and will appear in court soon.

  1. This is nonsense -can u elaborate what u mean by attempted rape .osamuipisira munthu mbiri ;azimaiwanso amawayamba dala ma male nurse wa,munthu akufuna kubaya thako koma mpaka kuchosa mpati yetse pansi

  2. Nanga namwino wamuna,akuthandiza mzimayi,abaya bwanj injection pa thako? Zina zimawonjeza,ine ndukapanga mdulidwe,anandipanga ndi mzimayi,ndye anaymba ndkundisewelesa,nditadzuka nkumandiblema ati ndine wa phuma zowona et abale.nkani ma toilet amaika ladies and gents

  3. rape is only proved if there z partial or full penetration, but doesn’t matter whether the man released his sperms or not! now tell us was there any penetration? if not then u call it something else! there z nothing like attempted rape, when it comes to rape!

    • But how would you prove attemped rape. If you keep on sticking to that I don’t think it will hold. Be straight with this issue otherwise it does not give sense to me. Do you collect medicine in an examination room? Since when has caressing changed its meaning to rape? Was she not told where to go and collect medicine on the subsequent visits? Attemped rape can be difficult to prove here #ChixoAusMaganga. Request our learned brethren to best describe this situation and possibly its terminology.

    • I don’t think so that we can find attempted rape & rape, ,the moment u say attempted rape that becomes sexual harassment ! hw wld u prove attempted rape?

  4. It is important for those who donot understand a thing to find out about it before making a bad comment or wrong interpretation. The meaning of a nurse or nursing as a profession doesnt favour a specific sex thus male or female. The other thing pple shud know is that errors or blunders happen across all professions. However, each and every profession hs got its own ethics but ones personality sometimes violates these ethics hence such a deviant behaviour. That is why we have problems in our country or the world at large, u see this issue has affected a nurse who was supposed to follow or respect patient right to dignity, similarly u see other pple in public offices etc mismanaging resources or finances which they are supposed to take care of, people managing security system involved in theft and examples are many. As a nurse myself, am not happy with the issue much as am not happy with comments of other pple on this page regarding sex and the profession of which they need civic education to be with us in this century.

    • im support de point ov mr Ben chambankuya,to me even though i dont know mr Ben i hope myb he iz alawyer,myb others they can b wonder y im say so,bt de point iz,avivid ov pple dont know who iz anurse,unless if we can understand de meaning he/she can’t commenting de stupid like dis,

  5. Attempted rape siikugwira nkhaniyi. Mwina munene kuti sexual harassment ingagwire kaya poti ife izizi izi simbali yathu. By the way how do you describe attempted rape and evidence to that. It is bad anyway but to suggest that abolish jobs for the male nurses just because of this Ian Chimutu of Phale village, T/A Khombeza is not only being myopic but blind to issues affecting health sector. With that mentality you will also say male clinical officers should also have their jobs commuted as there is a Dedza case, Mzuzu case and all these cases involved male clinical officers. The main issue that needed to change yesterday is attitude

  6. Chomwe ndaona boma ndilolakwa munthu wammuna sangapange operation munthu wankazi aliyekha yekha. Inenso nkazi wanga anafunsilidwa ndi Doctor ndipo anandiuza koma sizoona boma lichitepo kanthu pa munthu ameneu.

  7. Abolish male nurses and give them other jobs wihtin ur health facilities if u r to build better Malawi. I dont mean to terminate their services but to commute nurse job for another which r hold by women workers. And women take charge of nurse posts. About this male nurse I see no reason to arrest him because Goat eat where tied. Dont put togather millet and goat. Ndi izituu. Sanalakwe millet yinabwera ku Goat. sikuti Goat yinakasaka Millet. Olakwa ndiamene anayambisa ntchitoyi amuna. Mumtuluse

  14. Some of us when you say a “nurse” we think of a woman. I was about to say chilango chake chaku ndende abwere kunyumba kwanga ndili nzilango zambiri, nde poti mwati ndimzibambo aaaaah ameneyo bamsungani kaye timuganizire zochita naye.

  15. hahaha the Hippocratic oath doesn’t state that nurses should not rape but your personal code of conduct does. currently i can’t point a finger on someone. maybe the woman had negative intention over the nurse.situdziwa.mphepo ndimene yupangitsa zosezi.#teamchilangambeta
