Blantyre Magistrate Court will today start hearing a case involving Eric Aniva, a Nsanje hyena man who was arrested by the Police after confessing that he slept with over 100 young girls as sexual cleansing.
Yesterday the case failed to start due to unavailability of Magistrate Innocent Nebi who is presiding over the case as he was reportedly to be in Lilongwe for official duties and the case was adjourned to today Thursday.
Aniva is being charged with two counts which are indulging in harmful practices and an attempt to commit the same contrary to the 2012 gender.
During the previous seating, the presiding Judge shifted the case from Nsanje Magistrate Court to Blantyre due to transport cost due to the fact that Nebi reside in the commercial capital.
The development also forced the court to transfer Aniva and his two co-accused to Blantyre Police.
Meanwhile the presiding Judge is today expected to deliver a bail application by Aniva’s lawyer.
