Police in Lilongwe have this morning arrested a man for impersonating a female prostitute to steal from clients.
Kanengo police publicist Salome Zgambo Chibwana identified the man as Von Gomani.
Zgambo said Gomani who is male looks like a female and he wanted to use that to deceive men.
In the wee hours of Monday, Gomani dressed up like a woman, wore hair extensions and stood along Kaunda road in the city.
“A man later took him thinking he was a woman. They went together and booked a room. It was in that room that the other man noticed that the person he picked is not a lady but rather a fellow man,” said Zgambo.
The client then took the impostor to police because he felt deceived and suspected that the fake prostitute wanted to steal from him.
Von Gomani comes from Kapetera village, T/A Kapeni in Blantyre and will appear in court soon to answer charges of soliciting for immoral purposes which is under section 180 sub section (e) of the penal code.
