The State has filed 14 counts against China national Lu Ke, popularly known as Susu, who was arrested for allegedly using children to make racist comments in videos, which were being sold on Chinese online sites.

The case went back to court in Lilongwe Tuesday, when Susu applied for bail, only for Senior Resident Magistrate James Mankhwazi to refuse to release him on bail.

The counts include procurement of children for use of entertainment, trafficking in children, illegal use of internet and harmful social practices.

Director of Public Prosecutions Steven Kayuni told journalists outside the court that the counts were under the Child Justice Act and Trafficking in Persons Act.

“The State has filed 14 counts which will be read before him and he will respond to them one by one as to what he thinks about those counts and what his plea is before court,” he said.

The court has ordered that he remains in police custody until the trial is completed because he once fled the country and was arrested in Zambia.

Lu Ke fled Malawi after it was learnt that he had allegedly been recording videos of children in Njewa area, Lilongwe.

In one of the alleged videos, a child is heard saying: “I am a monster with a low IQ”.

The case has been adjourned to October 7, when the counts would be read to the suspect.
