A 27-YEAR-OLD man of Kabwe and his young sister aged 20 have appeared in the Kabwe Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of incest.
Aaron Musonda an electrician and Maureen Musonda a grade 12 pupil in Kabwe both appeared before Kabwe resident magistrate John Mbuzi on Thursday for explanation of the charge of incest.
The accused persons are both residents of Makululu Township and they share the same father but different mothers.
When they appeared before Mr Mbuzi, he told the two who seemed to be in a state of confusion that they were appearing in court for explanation of the charge of incest and not for plea.
When Mr Mbuzi asked Musonda if he understood the charge of incest, he said he did.
“I understand the charge,” Musonda responded.
His sister also told the court that she understood the charge she is facing.
The police have slapped Musonda with a charge of incest by males contrary to Section 159(1) of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia.
It is alleged that Musonda on dates unknown but between December 1 last year and February 27 this year in Kabwe, knowing that Maureen was his sister, allegedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
His sister has been charged with incest by females, contrary to Section 161 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
The court heard that Maureen on dates unknown but between December 1 last year and February 27 this year in Kabwe, allegedly permitted her elder brother to have sex with her.
Mr Mbuzi said the two will continue appearing in court for mention as instructions on how the state will proceed from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) are being awaited.
“This matter will only proceed if there is consent from the Director of Public Prosecutions,” Mr Mbuzi told the siblings.
The two will appear in court on March 11 for mention.
The police at Kasanda Police Station last Friday confirmed that the two were reported to the police by their father who wanted the police to end their marriage.
A police source said according to their father, siblings allegedly got married last year and when their family attempted to end their affair they fled Kabwe.
The source said they resurfaced this year, and their family heard that they were renting a house in Makululu.
