Police in Ntcheu have arrested a 23 year old Mike Magwaya for allegedly forcing two boys to have sexual intercourse with two girls he found picking mangoes in his orchard.
FaceofMalawi speaking to Ntcheu Police Public Relations Officer Hastings Chigalu confirmed of the development saying the suspect hails from Siliya Village, Traditional Authority Makwangwala in the district.
The suspect took the victims to a nearby bush where he first threatened them that he would hack them with a Panga knife before forcing them to have carnal knowledge.
“After taking them to a bush nearby he threatened them that he will hack them with a panga knife. He then said that he would take them to police unless if they agreed to whatever he would tell them to do.
“Out of fear the children agreed that they would do whatever he would say and it was at this point in time when he ordered them to undress and have sex while he watched them. When he released them the children reported the matter to their parents and the matter was further reported to police,” said the Ntcheu District Police Publicist.
The accused was arrested after the parents made a complaint at the police station and he has since been charged with indecent assault and will soon be expected to appear in court.
