By Staff Reporter

Police in Lilongwe have arrested a 24-year old woman for allegedly forcing two boys aged 4 and 15 into having sex with her. Lilongwe Police Deputy Public Relations Officer Foster Benjamin has identified the suspect as Christina Masina.

According to Benjamin, the suspect committed the offence on Monday night at Chigwirizano. He said, “Masina used to invite the victims, who are the children of her fellow colleagues, to sleep at her house on security grounds when she went out plying her trade. On Monday night, she returned from her usual errand and found the boys fast asleep.”

Benjamin further said Masina fell into slumber before she awoke the boys claiming she had a dream.”In the dream, she said, she was having sexual intercourse with the boys. Immediately, she forced the victims into sex with her,” said Benjamin.

The victims narrated their ordeal to their mothers who in turn reported to Chigwirizano Community Policing Forum. The community policing team apprehended the suspect and turned her in to the police.

The police have since charged her with sexual activities with children, contrary to Section 160 of the Penal code. She will appear in court soon to answer the charge. Masina comes from Mlangeni Village, Traditional Authority Njolomole in Ntcheu.
