BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Malawi Police in Balaka are keeping in custody a 16-year-old boy for allegedly having canal knowledge with a pig.
Balaka Police Station spokesperson Chisomo Potani Kanyimbi said the suspect identified as Chikondi Rodgers committed the offence on September 27, 2022 in Utale at Waluma Village T/A Nkaya.
She said on the material day, the owner of the pig left his son together with the accused at his house.
However, the Police publicist said the son also left his friend alone to collect a phone charger at his uncle’s house.
Potani Kanyimbi said the accused then grabbed the opportunity to empty his libido levels on the pig until he was caught red handed by his friend.
She said in order to conceal the ordeal, the suspect offered MK200, onions and fresh maize to his friend who still went ahead to disclose to his parents who later reported the matter to the Community Police leading to his arrest.
The suspect who comes from Magaleta Village T/A Nkaya is expected to appear before the court to answer a charge of bestiality which is contrary to section 153 of the Penal Code according to Potani Kanyimbi.
