A 20 year old Chinsali woman charged with one count of indecent assault on a 4 year old boy says the boy contracted the sexually transmitted Infection (STIs) through sharing the same bed chamber.
Lizzy Chilufya told the court today, that during her stay with her friend they used to share household utensils including a bed chamber as they were using a pit latrine toilet.
The accused person who denied the charge levelled against her said she never at any point slept with her friend’s child because she knew very well that she was infected with STIs.
She told the court that she was in fact the one who suggested that the child be taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
The suggestion caused an argument between the two of them after which Chilufya was accused of sleeping with the said child.
The matter will come up for possible Judgment on May 27, 2015.
