Malawian cops demand sex from prostitutes under arrest

27 September 2016, 19:15

Lilongwe - A recent revelation has confirmed that over 30% of Malawi police officers are HIV positive, leading to a call for a behavioural change within the ranks of the country's police force, Nyasa Times reports.

Speaking during the launch of Theatre of Change, a sensitization campaign targeted at police officials, Lexten Kachama, Inspector General of Police, urged officers to be more careful with their sexual practices as many have contracted HIV through reckless behaviour.

In addition, Wiseman Msimuko, Finance Director for Theatre of Change, has noted that some officials demand sex from prostitutes who have been placed under arrest, thereby leading to a spread in the virus.

“They demand sex from prostitutes when they arrest them, the demand sex in return for freedom. They have unproitected sex with the prostitutes,” he said.

Msimuko's utterances comes just a week after a sex workers association in the country's southern township of Mangochi launched a scathing attack on the police force for forcing sex workers to engage in sexual activities once they are pout under police custody.

Sex Workers Alliance, a national grouping for sex workers, has since expressed concern over an abuse of power on the part of security officials within the state.
