A 40-year-old man, Likisoni Chadza, is in police custody at Dowa Police Station for allegedly committing an offence of incest.
The suspect is alleged to have committed the offence between the night of February 14 to February 15, 2021 at Siliya Village, where he is alleged to have sexual intercourse with her 14-year-old biological daughter.
It is alleged that, on the morning of February 14, 2021, the suspect went to drink beer within the vicinity and returned home at around 20:00 hours.
Upon his arrival, the suspect immediately demanded his wife, Maloto Shawa, that he wanted to take his children to his original home in Dowa, but he looked drunk.
The suspect then forcibly took his two children including the victim and his brother and pretended that he was taking the children to Dowa.
But whilst on the way, the victim’s brother escaped back home where he narrated the whole scenario.
The victim’s mother and brother to the victim rushed to the scene where the victim was found crying. After a brief interrogation, the victim revealed that she had been defiled by her own biological father, who happens to be the suspect.
Medical examination report indicates that the child was indeed defiled. This led to the arrest of the suspect.
The suspect, Likisoni Chadza, who comes from Siliya Village in the area of Traditional Authority Chiwere in Dowa, will appear before court soon to answer a charge of incest.
