The University Teaching Hospital (UTH) recorded four hundred and twelve (412) cases of defilement from January to April 2014.
UTH Spokesperson Mwenya Mulenga has told QFM News in an interview that March recorded the highest number of defilement cases at one hundred and eight cases.
Mr. Mulenga said the age group of the defiled children was between eleven and fifteen years.
He explained that the figures are based on the cases reported to the institution and do not include those cases which were not reported.
Mr. Mulenga said that there has been an increase in the number of defilement cases received by the country’s biggest hospital.
Note that these statistics are just for reported cases at UTH alone. Hundreds of such defilements are never reported. Even last night dozens were defiled and more will be defiled today. This is the evil reality.
