Durban: In the east African nation of Malawi there is a unique tradition where the women forces their under-age daughters to sleep with a stranger whom they consider “holy” for their “sexual purification”, a media report said.
According to the report, this absurd tradition is practised in many parts of the country. In a recent interview to a television channel, one of the holy men claimed to have had sex with more than 100 girls and women.
He revealed that by having sex he actually performs a “sexual cleansing” exercise on the young girls so that they can become “purified”.
He said that he lives in a remote village and goes from village to village to perform the ritual.
He also revealed that sometimes he had to force himself on some girls as they won’t allow him to touch them.
And he is also being paid to have sex. He said that people usually pay him about Rs 450 per person.
Some of the girls are as young as 12 and 13 years old. He claimed to have sex sex even with widows, which is usually done before her husband’s funeral as part of the “cleansing ritual”.
He claimed that if he refused to sleep with them, then girls’ family members would be destroyed by the forces of nature.
Asked about the ritual, he said, “It helps them to inculcate good values, become good wives and they will be able to sexually satisfy their husbands”.
