A 35 year old man of Kapiri-Mposhi has been arrested for allegedly defiling and impregnating his 13year old biological daughter.
Philemon Musonda of Kafwaka area, whose daughter is now five months pregnant is said to have had sex with her on several occasions between October 2013 and February 2014 and constantly threatened her against revealing this to her mother.
Central Province Police Commissioner Standwell Lungu said the suspect was believed to have taken advantage of the girl each time her mother was away. Lungu said the girl was a Grade Five pupil and the father had been charged with defilement and incest.
“It is very sad that the father who is supposed to protect the child can impregnate her despite being married to her mother,” Lungu said.
