A Prison warder at Chichiri Prison has been demoted for allegedly aiding Cashgate convict Oswald Lutepo to have sex with a woman at the penitentiary despite it being against the laws.
Malawi prison regulations do not allow convicts exercise their conjugal rights by having sex with their spouses, however, on May 31st this year Lutepo is reported to have had sex with a woman who happens not to be his wife Gertrude.
Information Malawi Punch has sourced identified the woman as Lutepo’s girlfriend, Constable Witness Ndhlovu of Kasungu Police.
Information also revealed that the warder, who helped the convict enjoy his conjugal rights while in prison, has been demoted and transferred to Nsanje district.
Lutepo started serving his 11-year jail term with hard labour (IHL) at Zomba Prison after being convicted for conspiracy to defraud government and money laundering K4.2billion, in September, 2015.
He was however, for no apparent reason, transferred to Chichiri Prison where he allegedly had sex with his girlfriend.
Meanwhile, he has filed a libel suit against Times Media Group, demanding K1 billion in damages for publishing what he described as a false story aimed at damaging his chances of having his sentence reduced on good behavior.
