Police in Kabwe have arrested a 39-year-old government worker for defiling his ten years old step daughter.

Commissioner of Police for Central Province Joel Njase, confirmed the matter to ZANIS in an interview today.

Mr. Njase identified the culprit as Richard Mulope, a driver with the Ministry of Agriculture based at the Research Centre of House number D24, Research Compound.

The Police Commissioner noted that the defiler was arrested on Wednesday after his 24-year-old wife, Pearance Chipito, of the same abode reported the matter to the police.

He said the culprit was allegedly caught red handed having carnal knowledge of the minor in the sitting room on Tuesday around 21: 30 hours by his wife.

Commissioner Njase said a formal arrest has been made and that the culprit who is in police custody will appear in court soon.

The police chief said on medical examinations at the hospital, it was discovered that the victim has been infected with HIV suggesting that the defilement has been going on for a long time

  1. 10 years imprisonment! That should serve his d.i.c.k justice! And while in jail, I hope the inmates do the right thing. In cases he has to bend over when picking up soap!

    • Styupid Pearance Chipato, she had that 10 year old at 14 years old???? She one who was defiled, not daughter. That poor girl was born H
      This out break of “defilement” is more evil than rats in PF or lying that Lusaka is capital of Israel.
      A driver didn’t make enough money, a broke man is a defiler.

    • How about just chopping it and save the taxpayers money feeding, housing and paying the prison officers.

  2. I think it’s wrong in cases such as this one to name the parties involved because this reveals the identity of the poor child, much to her detriment.

    • I agree with you, the police commissioner in Kabwe acted in an unethical manner not to ensure privacy and confidentiality of the parties involved unless the Zambian Police Service are not educated on the importance of privacy of all the people including the rapist. That is how it works in the 21st century. Kanganja must educate his officers to avoid acting unprofessionally as it reflects back to him as top No 1 in the police service.

    • Both LT and the police have acted irresponsibly. Professional journalists know their obligations to society and protection of rape victims especially underage ones is among respected media’ s ethics. Police need to get education. Kanganja is sleeping, just waiting for HH to overtake the presidential motorcade

  3. It is said among Christians “Get rid of that which causes you to sin” and by declaration, Zambia is supposedly a nation guided by Christian principles, thus if the [email protected]*% is culpable why not mete out the “get rid” punishment to avoid repetition? Isn’t it said “Uwakalema taleka?” imprisonment is neither correction or deterrent for child molesters!

  5. If the girl is 10 and mother 24 then were is the culprit who defiled the mother at 14? It must be a family disease. Mulandu siuwola let the police investigate deeper.
