A 48-year-old father, Andrea Samu, has been arrested for allegedly defiling his own 21 year-old daughter in Chiradzulu District.
The incident occurred at Kunchema Village in the area of Traditional Authority Mpama in the district.
Samu allegedly defiled the daughter on the night of November 15, 2019 when his wife went to attend a funeral ceremony where she slept.

The police have since charged Samu with incest. He will appear before court soon to answer the charge.
He comes from Katchende village in T/A Mpama’s area in the district.
