Police in Gwembe have arrested and detained a 27-year-old man for indecent curiosity.
Wycliff Ntundu of House Number 70 in Gwembe Township did on Tuesday this week, wilfully and unlawfully peep through their house’s bathroom door with intent to see Gwembe Constituency Member of Parliament’s wife, Elector Chilipa Ntundu’s nudity as she took a bath.
Police have charged the suspect with indecent curiosity.
With intent to see her nudity, Wycliff, a nephew of the Gwembe MP, Brian Ntundu did wilfully and unlawfully peep at his uncle’s wife before he was discovered.
The suspect grew up at the Ntundu’s homestead and is alleged to be in the habit of peeping on people taking a bath and that he would even climb a tree to see someone taking a bath in an outside roofless showering place.
Mrs Ntundu, 44, of the same house number, narrated to Police in Gwembe that she caught her nephew peeping through the bathroom door as she bathed before she reported the matter to police.
Sources at the police station told ZANIS that the MP’s wife is likely to withdraw the case if the suspect shows remorse.
