Police in Blantyre have arrested 25 year old Chrissy Sanudi for allegedly sleeping with her employer’s teenage boy.
The suspect is a maid who stays together with her employer at M’bwelera- Chemusa within Blantyre City.
She was employed in January, 2021 as a house maid and one of her job was to care for the children in the house.
After some months, her employer became suspicious with how she was interacting with one of the male children in the house who is 13 year’s old.
The employer had found out that the suspect could take a bath and wear clothes in the presence of the child.
“She then started to monitor the movement of her Child and on 21 December, 2021, at around 20:00 hours, she noticed that her son was in the room of the maid. As a parent, she went to see what her son was doing in the maid’s room and suddenly she discovered that the son was doing sexual intercourse with the maid.” reads a statement signed by Peter Mchiza, Blantyre Police Publicist.
She reported the matter to Kabula Police Unit and the suspect was arrested.
