Benson Mumba a neighborhood officer told ZANIS in an interview today that Bonnewell Hapangwa a builder was last evening arrested around 18; 00hours.

And speaking in an interview Hapangwa’s wife Gladys narrated that her husband on unknown dates but early this year allegedly had sexual intercourse with his daughter .
Gladys this happened about five times at different intervals whenever she went out in the field to tilt the land.
‘’ I didn’t know that my husband was going out with my daughter. I came to know about their affair when I was told by a neighbor, it’s really embarrassing because I never expected that to happen to my daughter Lister Hapangwa who is alleged to have a two month pregnancy although we have not taken her to the hospital yet ’’, she said amid sobs .
Meanwhile, Police in Siavonga have also confirmed the arrest of Hapangwa who is in custody at the local police station and will appear in court soon.
