Malawi cops arrest man posing as female prostitute

POLICE in Malawi have arrested a man who was posing as a female prostitute to steal from his ‘clients’.
Kanengo police publicist Salome Zgambo Chibwana identified the man as Von Gomani.


Zgambo said Gomani, whose looks were deceiving as he could easily be mistaken for a woman, had been using that to deceive men.



Gomani, early on Monday, dressed up like a woman, wore hair extensions and stood along Kaunda road in the city.


A man later took him thinking he was a woman. They went together and booked a room. It was in that room that the other man noticed that the person he picked is not a lady but rather a fellow man,

said Zgambo, who further explained that the client then took Gomani to police because he felt cheated and suspected that the fake prostitute wanted to steal from him.


Gomani of Kapetera village in Blantyre will appear in court soon to answer charges of soliciting for immoral purposes which is prohibited under section 180 sub section (e) of the Malawian Penal Code, according to Zgambo.
