Malawi: Teenage lesbians caught in the act



Two form three girls (names withheld) have been dismissed from Michiru Secondary School in Blantyre, Malawi for allegedly being found in a lesbianism act.

According to Maravi Post, the two girls who last month (February 2014) were also being found kissing, licking each other inside the school hostels, were also found doing the same last Saturday (March 15, 2014).

The girls from Michiru Secondary were found for the second time in a ‘lesbianism act’ of kissing, licking and  fingering. Then the one who found them (a girl and name withheld) was asked by the two to keep the issue secret and that if she would ask for anything she needs in her life like money they would give her without hesitation.

The Malawi Penal Code, under Section 137A provides that any female person who, whether in public or private, commits any act of gross indecency with another female person, or procures another female person to commit any act of gross indecency with her, or attempts to procure the commission of any such act by any female person with herself or with another female person, whether in public or private, shall be guilty of an offense and shall be liable to imprisonment. Same-sex relations are illegal in Malawi. The Penal Code prohibits “carnal knowledge against the order of nature,” attempts to commit “carnal knowledge against the order of nature,” and acts of “gross indecency.”
