A THIRTY-FIVE-year-old man of Kapiri-Mposhi has been arrested for allegedly defiling and impregnating his 13-year-old daughter.
The suspect, Philemon Musonda, is said to have defiled his daughter on several occasions and is now five months pregnant.
Musonda, of Kafwaka area was alleged to have had sex with his daughter between October 2013 and February 2014 and constantly threatened her against revealing this to her mother.
Central Province Police Commissioner Standwell Lungu said the suspect was believed to have had taken advantage of the girl each time her mother was away.
Mr Lungu said the girl was a Grade Five pupil and the father had been charged with incest.
“It is very sad that the father who is supposed to protect the child can impregnate her despite being married to her mother,” Mr Lungu said.

The guard identified as Isaac Chinoya was attacked by criminals who later got away with assorted goods, whose value had not yet been established.
