Police in Kasungu are keeping in custody a 13 year old boy identified as Mabvuto Mvula for allegedly sodomizing a 9 year old boy. This occurred on 17 September, 2016 at Chamama Trading Centre at around 1900 hours.
Malawi Police said on the material day and time, the suspect and the victim were coming from a video show and the suspet enticed the victim.
“On their way home the suspect enticed the victim to follow him to his home where he would give him headset. Upon entering his room, the suspect fished out a knife and threatened the victim that he will kill him if he denied to be sodomized”, said Kasungu deputy publist Harry Namwaza.
The suspect did his heinous act and further threatened the victim to deal with him if he attempted to tell anyone.
“The victim didn’t tell anyone but it is the mother of the victim who noticed that her son had difficulties in walking. After confronting the victim, he revealed to his mother that the suspect had sodomized him the previous night”, concluded Namwaza.
Mabvuto Mvula was arrested on September 18, 2016 and has been charged with Sodomy which is contrary to Section 153(a) of the Penal Code.
Malawi Police in Kasungu told News Watch Reviews that it is not the first time for the suspect to be in conflict with the law as he was previously arrested for allegedly defiling a 11 year old girl.
The suspect will appear before court soon to answer the charge of Sodomy when enquiries are completed.
Mabvuto Mvula comes from Kajontha village under Traditional Authority Wimbe in Kasungu district.
