High Court Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda has this morning ordered the state to compensate women who were raped by police officers in Msundwe, Lilongwe.

Delivering his ruling, Judge Nyirenda has also ordered the Malawi Police to arrest all officers involved in the alleged sexual harassment.

The judge has further ordered Police to submit a report to court within 30 days of the judgment on investigations on the matter.

He further ordered that assessment for the compensation should be done within 21 days by the High Court Registrar.

Last year, several women were raped by suspected police officers who raided Msundwe, M’bwatalika to revenge the death of the police officers killed by the villagers.

The angry community blocked the Lilongwe Mchinji road in protest against former President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s rally in Lilongwe.

Police officers were deployed to the area to control the situation but things went wrong resulting to the death of Imedi, a police officer who was stoned to death.
