Police in Blantyre’s Bangwe Township have arrested a 34-year-old man for defiling his two stepdaughters.
Limbe Police Station Public Relations Officer, Patrick Mussa, said the suspect has been identified as Amos Kumbani from Viwabu Village in the area of Traditional Authority Juma in Mulanje District.
Mussa said according to the victims, an 18-year-old secondary school student, and a 9-year-old primary school learner, their father has been sleeping with them since 2018 as a ritual to get rich.
He said this year, the victims got tired of their father’s barbaric acts and reported the matter to police.
Mussa added that medical examination results showed injuries and signs of possible penetrations.
He has since been charged with defilement, which contravenes Section 138 of the penal code, and will appear before court soon.
