Lingadzi Police arrest man for defilement


Police at Lingadzi in Lilongwe have arrested 60-year-old Amos Kambewa on suspicion that he defiled a 15-year-old girl.

A police report says on February 24, 2023,  the girl departed from Mchinji to LiLongwe where she arrived at night.

The girl however met a stranger who later abandoned her at Area 12. The victim was stranded and did not know where to go. 

Taking advantage of her desperation, some people who acted as Good Samaritans offered her a place to sleep.

It was during that midnight that Kambewa defiled her while threatening to harm her if she dared to shout.

The following morning, the girl reported the matter to Lingadzi Police Station where she was issued a referral letter to Kamuzu Central Hospital.

The results revealed that she was indeed defiled.
