A-32-year-old Police officer in Nsanje is in Police custody for allegedly raping a 17 year old girl who is seeking refuge at one of the flood victim’s camp in the district.

The incident happened last month but Police were reluctant to arrest the suspect, saying there was no enough evidence to arrest the suspect.

The Police claimed that the victim slept with two men at the fateful day which the victims denied, saying the information was faked to protect the officer.

Due to pressure from Human right activist, Police finally arrested the officer identified as Sergeant Petro Mkulalero on Sunday.

Nsanje Public Relations Officer, John Tembenu confirmed of the arrest in an interview with the Press.

“It is true we have arrested our fellow officer for those allegations (rape) and will appear in court soon,” but failed to divulge more information despite several questions.

The suspect is currently being kept at Chiromo Police Station waiting to appear in court soon.
