Uncle accused of impregnating niece


A 15-YEAR-OLD girl of Chinjala farms in Chief Madzimawe’s area has testified how she was defiled and impregnated by her uncle.
Elias Zulu appeared before Resident Magistrate Destine Kalusopa in a matter where he is charged of defilement.

Particulars of the offence are that on dates unknown but between 1 February and 30 June, 2020 in Chipata, Zulu had canal knowledge of the girl who is below the age of 16 thereby
impregnating her.
It is alleged that Zulu had sex with the girl who is an orphan, several times in a maize field and in the forest where he was producing charcoal.
In cross examination Phiri argued that the girl had a boyfriend whom she shared a sexual relationship with, but the girl insisted that Phiri was the one responsible for her pregnancy as the
relationship with her boyfriend ended in 2018.
And the wife to Phiri who is the aunt to the girl told the court that her husband has a tendency of sleeping with young girls they keep at home.
She said that it is not the first time Phiri was involved in such an offence as he was earlier charged with the similar offence in 2017, having slept with his step daughter but was discharged by
the courts as witnesses could not go to testify in the court.
The matter has been adjourned to tomorrow for continuation of trial. – BREEZE FM
