Police in Malawi are advising parents and guardians to exercise extra caution with children, by ensuring that they never walk unaccompanied during odd hours.

This follows the death of a four year old girl in the southern region district of Chiradzulu.

The girl suffered internal bleeding after she was defiled by a 21 year old man in the district.

According to the deceased’s aunt, the girl met her fate on May 21 when she and her seven year old sister were sent by their grandmother to collect a bucket from a nearby borehole.

According to the aunt, on their way back the girls met the suspect who dragged the victim into a garden of pigeon peas where he defiled her and left her unconscious.

The older girls escaped the scene and reported the matter to the elders, which led to the arrest of the suspect.

This comes as the public has been raising concern over the recent lapse in security in the country over the past two months.

Some members of the public have even taken the law into their own hands and punished suspected by beating people they thought are behind various crimes in their communities.

Speaking to Capital FM, the law enforcers assured the citizenry that they are doing all they can to ensure that security is tight everywhere in the country.

The Agriculture minister George Chaponda was this morning spotted sitting among fellow cabinet minister at the prayers to mark this year’s John Chilembwe commemorations in Chiradzulu district.

The government of Malawi has been accused of neglecting rural areas in the provision of portable water.

Parents in Chiradzulu are ever more officially registering their children, a development which the office of the registrar has attributed to a trend in which parents in the district depart Malawi to hunt for jobs in South Africa and prefer migrating with their offspring.
