Minister Kaliati visits Mchinji woman victim of violence and coerced Marriage

Linda who looks young than her age, also revealed how she got married to her husband, saying on January 26,this year, she met the man who said he loved her and asked her to follow him to his house.



“I followed him yet, I did not know him and I did not tell my parents. When we reached his house he told me he wanted to marry me and I accepted and I never went back to my parents’ house despite their efforts to make me return home,’’ narrated Linda a standard seven drop out.



She said she suspected Yasini used charms to lure her into marriage, because she did not understand how she could follow a man she never met before and she was forced to wear some charms in her waist amulets (Zithumwa) every day at their marital home.    Minister Kaliati visits Mchinji woman victim of violence and coerced Marriage: Malawi Minister Kaliati visits Mchinji woman victim of violence and coerced Marriage
