Girl Defiled, Killed in Thyolo

A Luchenza primary school Standard 1 learner has been killed by unknown assailants and police say they have launched manhunt.

South-East Police Region Spokesperson, Edward Kabango, said the victim, a six-year-old girl, went missing on the 24 April, 2023 only to be found dead, at a near-by stream called Sambagalu on Tuesday evening.

Postmortem results showed that the girl died of suffocation after being strangulated and defiled by the assailants.

Kabango has since appealed to communities in the region, Thyolo in particular to help in providing information which can lead to the arrest of those behind the apparent increased homicide cases.

In January, a Standard 8, twelve-year-old leaner at Ntambanyama primary school was killed in similar circumstances and five suspects are in police custody for allegedly committing that offence.
