Man nabbed for raping, impregnating girl


Malawi Police in Phalombe district have arrested 24-year-old Pius Jonas for raping and impregnating a girl aged 16 who is also a person with albinism.

The law enforcers’ spokesperson in the district Innocent Moses told Malawi24 that Police arrested the suspect after the mother of the victim reported the matter.

According to Moses, the victim who is expecting to sit for the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PLSCE) this year is three month pregnant.

Moses said the man started sexually abusing the girl in September last year.

He  added that the suspect who is a brother-in-law to the victim has accepted being responsible for the pregnancy of the girl and has been charged with the case of having sex with the minor which is contrary to section 160 (b) of the penal code.

However, the Police have disclosed that they may change the charge considering what the investigators who are on the ground will come up with.

The accused hails from Musala Village in the area of Traditional Authority Kaduya in the district.
