MBAYANI PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPIL ATTACKED BY GULE WAMKULU STILL IN COMA

Date:

Police in Lilongwe are still hunting for a Gule Wamkulu cult member, one month after it allegedly stabbed a 14-year-old boy on the head with a metal bar leaving him unconscious.

The boy identified as Lewis Patrick and a pupil at Mbayani Full Primary School in Blantyre is still unconscious at Kamuzu Central Hospital where he is receiving treatment, police said.

Kanengo Police spokesperson, Sub Inspector Esther Mkwanda told Malawi News Agency (MANA) Tuesday that Patrick met his fate while visiting his uncle at Ngomani village in Traditional Authority Chitukula during the festive season.

“The Gule Wamkulu approached a group of kids and threw a metal bar which pierced through the boy’s skull. The Gule Wamkulu then removed the metal bar from the boy’s head leaving him with a deep cut before disappearing,” said Mkwanda.

She said her office suspected that chiefs within T.A. Chitukula are deliberately shielding the Gule Wamkulu responsible for causing grievous harm to the boy, a crime contrary to section 238 of the penal code and attracts a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment with hard labour.

“As we speak the boy is still unconscious at Kamuzu Central Hospital. Meanwhile we suspect chiefs within the areas shielding the perpetrator but we will search until we find the suspect,” said Mkwanda.
