By Staff Reporter

 

Bwanuka Ward councilor in Chadiza constituency, Paul Zulu is on the run after allegedly defiling a 14 year old girl of Jungu-jani village.

And chief Maguya of the Ngoni people confirmed receiving the report of the incident and explained that the matter was reported to Msupazi police post.

“I have expressed dismay that a leader who should spearhead the protection of the girl child is alleged to be a culprit of championing bad vices,” said chief Maguya.

Meanwhile, authorities at Chadiza district council have expressed ignorance on the whereabouts of the councilor.

Council chairman Paul Phiri said his office had not heard from or seen the councilor recently.

Asked whether he was aware of the alleged defilement case, Phiri said he too had only been getting unverified reports. 

“I only learned of the purported case on Sunday, but I will travel to the area to establish the truth,” said Phiri
