A FORTY-FIVE-year-old man in Chisamba has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl.

Central Province police chief Standwell Lungu identified the suspect as Collard Mweemba of Mukuwa Village who has since been charged for defilement.
Mr Lungu said yesterday said the suspect was believed to have defiled the girl on different dates between March 9 and June 28, this year.
He said the suspect took advantage of the absence of the girl’s parents and defiled her.
The man threatened violence if the girl revealed the ordeal to anyone.
Mr Lungu said preliminary investigations showed that the girl’s parents became worried about their daughter’s condition.
The girl later disclosed that she was defiled by Mweemba who threatened to kill her if she told anyone what had been happening to her.
The suspect has since been remanded in custody and would appear in court soon.
Meanwhile, the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has arrested a 39-year-old Nigerian of Kitwe for trafficking in cocaine.
DEC public relations officer Samuel Silomba said in a statement that Ernest Chukwu Jekwu, 39, a Nigerian national and business consultant, had been arrested for trafficking in one rock of cocaine.
“The suspect, who had been on the watch list of the Commission for a long time, was intercepted in Kitwe’s Chimwemwe area as he was attempting to sell the drugs,” he said.
DEC has also arrested a 23-year-old Zambian man believed to have been recruited by the Nigerian from Kitwe for trafficking in cocaine.
Mr Silomba said Victor Chilambwe, 23, a driver of Ndeke Township in Ndola has been arrested for trafficking in 10 rocks of cocaine.
He was apprehended at a lodge in Ndola.
In Lusaka, the commission has arrested Godfrey Mkondya, 20, a business executive of John Laing Township for trafficking in 42 sachets of cocaine.
