Chieftainess Mwenda of Mazabuka in Southern Province has condemned the defilement of a four- year- old minor and has since called for the immediate arrest of the suspects linked to the sexual assault.
The Chieftainess told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that all men found guilty of sexually abusing minors will be castrated instead of handing them to the Police services.
Chieftainess Mwenda said she will work closely with management of Chikankata hospital to ensure people suspected of defiling minors are immediately castrated to reduce the rising cases of defilement in her chiefdom.
She complained that her Chiefdom has of late been turned into a defilement base because most of the culprits were allegedly left scot free due to the absence of Police officers to man Malabo police post.
The Chieftainess said it is disheartening to see minors being defiled and their lives ruined while culprits enjoyed their freedom.
The royal highness said, she has since gone into a partnership with the Law and Development Association (LADA) to help sensitise her subjects.
Last week, Chikankata Mission Hospital Administrator, Richard Bradbury said the hospital administration is concerned with the increased cases of minors defiled and receiving treatment from the hospital.
Mr Bradbury told ZANIS, his administration has since sought the intervention of the Chieftainess to help reduce a wave of defilement cases.
