POLICE in Kasama have arrested a 65-year-old man of New Town township for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old biological daughter.
Northern Province deputy commissioner of police Alfred Nawa confirmed the development, which happened on Wednesday around 22.00 hours at the suspect’s house.
The suspect has been identified as Enock Kachota.
Mr Nawa said the suspect is believed to have divorced the victim’s mother and brought in another woman.
“We have arrested a 65-year-old man of New Town area for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old biological daughter. The victim stays with her step-mother and her biological father.
So on the particular night, her step-mother went in the bush to fetch caterpillars and the suspect crept into her daughter’s bedroom and defiled her,” Mr Nawa said.
He said the girl, who is a grade eight pupil, reported the ordeal to her class teacher, who informed the victim’s biological mother.
The matter was reported to Kasama one-stop police post.
