In a rather shocking revelation, a Prophet under Voice of One Calling Church, Harrison Chatepa has been sexually forcing himself on underage girls and in the process, has fathered 10 babies of below 7 months old, whose mothers are between the ages of 11 and 16.
The total number of the girls, whom he trafficked from the districts of Mwanza, Neno, Thyolo, Balaka and Blantyre under the pretext of caring for orphans through his charitable faith based organization are 18 in all.
Popularly known as “Dadi One” Chatepa has been keeping the girls under inhuman conditions at Donda Village in the area of Traditional Authority Makwangwala.
The issue was firstly reported at Ntcheu Police Station where Public Relations Officer, Hastings Chigalu confirmed to have arrested the prophet.
Chigaru elaborated that, the self acclaimed prophet, has therefore, been housing the girls in a shark within his homestead where were living, clammed together in very dehumanizing conditions.
Through effective partnership and collaboration between the government’s Ministry of Gender, Police and Yoneco (a Zomba based child centred non governmental organization), the girls have since been rescued.
