Kabaza operator arrested for defiling his master's daughter
Kawale Police in Lilongwe are keeping in custody a 20-year-old Kabaza operator, Ospino Maxwell Enock, for allegedly defiling his 15-year-old master's daughter.
The suspect committed the offense on April 5, 2022, at Mtande Village close to Kamuzu Barracks Range Forest within Kang'oma outskirts.
It is reported that the suspect was employed as Kabaza operator and on this particular day, he was sent to the maize mill by his employer accompanied by the victim, who is a daughter of his employer.
The journey to Kang'oma Trading Centre went on well but when coming back the rider stopped at a nearby bush which is situated between Kamuzu Barracks Range and their village.
The suspect dragged the girl and defiled her only to be rescued by a man who was passing by.
Enock being caught in the act sensed danger and he then offered the man money to silence him, but his efforts proved futile as the matter was brought to the attention of the parents who made a report to Kang'oma Police.
The victim was issued with a referral report for examination at Kang'oma Health Centre where the results came out positive.
Detectives from Kang'oma and Area 23 Police had a joint operation that led to his arrest.
The suspect hails from Chidamlodza Village in the area of Traditional Authority Tsabango in Lilongwe and he will appear before court soon to answer a charge of defilement contrary to Section 137 of the Penal Code.
