MHRC Report on Police Rape Out

The Malawi Human Rights Commission says police who were deployed to quell unrest at Msundwe in Lilongwe on 8 October were not properly prepared for the task which led to failure to withstand pressure from angry people, subsequently leading to death Superintendent Usuman Imedi.

Speaking in Lilongwe when the Commission released three reports on investigations into the death of Imedi, loss of business and rape allegations by police officers, MHRC Commissioner, Martha Chizuma, said officers were hastily mobilized from other duties and deployed without gear.

The other two investigation reports have also established that 17 women and girls were raped by police officers and that the officers destroyed and looted people's property at Msundwe, Mbwatalika, Kadziyo and Mphingu on 8 October.

The detailed report also asserts that in some cases, after raping the women, police officers would step on their vaginas.
