Former MBC boss Sumbuleta charged with indecent assault, abuse of office

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Former Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Director General Aubrey Sumbuleta has finally been charged with three counts of indecent assault and three counts of abuse of office.

This follows his appearance before the Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Court on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 where Sumbuleta was formally charged.

Chief Resident Magistrate, Patrick Chirwa, however committed the case to the High Court following an application by the State Prosecutor Cecelia Zangaza.

Sumbuleta was arrested on April 17 this month after an inquiry by the Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) on sexual abuse at MBC.

The MHRC report revealed that Sumbuleta sexually abused female employees from the MBC in 2010 when Sumbuleta was Deputy Director of Information and between 2015 and 2020 when he was Director General of the MBC.

More than eight women accuse Sumbuleta of sexually abusing them but only four were willing to testify against the former MBC boss during the inquiry.

Sumbuleta was fired from MBC.
