Pastor in court for raping his step daughter


A 34 year old pastors of Kapiri Mposhi appeared in court for allegedly raping and impregnating his 17 year old step daughter.

Before Kapiri Mposhi Magistrate Edward Banda was Alex Kunda of valley view compound facing one count of rape contrary to Section 132 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 as read with Act number 2 of 2011 of the laws of Zambia.

Particulars of the offence are that between November 12 and 20, 2022, Kunda had unlawful carnal knowledge of his stepdaughter, without her consent.

The girl who is currently five months pregnant is a grade eleven pupil at a named school in Kapiri Mposhi.

Kunda has pleaded not guilty to the charge prompting magistrate Banda to set March 23, 2022 as date for trial in this matter.

Kunda was arrested on February 25, 2022 and is on police bond.


  1. What kind of a pastor is this? Let’s amend the Penal Code to allow a charge of 2nd degree incest. He can’t have a relationship with both the mother and daughter, it’s an abomination.

  2. This looks like a postdated crime. He has even been arrested in advance. Doing grade seven at 17 yrs? mmmmmm!!!! Katwishi mwandi

  3. Church leaders involved in rape cases or more in general sexual misbehaviour should be sentenced to DEATH without parole.

  4. @ Tom Mutundu wisa you tribalist. You see Kunda and you conclude. Kunda is a name found in Luapula Northern, Eastern and Central provinces but you want to tribalise the issue. Zambia doesnt need you in its nation. Go to the Congo Forest.

  5. @National my wife is Swaka her mother is Lenje and Kunda is her uncle’s name. I also know a Charles Kunda who is Nsenga. Just imagine the Nsengas are far away in Petauke and Swakas in Kapiri but they share a name. So I often don’t rush to conclude about tribes

  6. The offence has not yet been commiyyed according to the report. Furthermore she cannot be 5 months pregnent even if the year is corrected,

  7. Here is the time line:

    November 12, 2022, he sleeps with the teenager

    February 25, 2022, Pastor arrested

    March 23, 2022 trial date

    May, 2023, she would be 6 months pregnant.

    If any one can get sense in this unorthodox way of writing it would mostly mean they are only imagining. Hard to tell whether the story going or coming.
    Apart from the truth of incest, the facts are warped.

  8. Blame the reporters for such a poorly written story. And Blame the Zambian education system for allowing such miserable professionals to serve the nation
