By Staff Reporter

A 70-year old man has appeared in the Choma fast track court for allegedly defiling and indecently assaulting two girls aged 9 and 12 contrary to the Laws of Zambia.


Martias Mweetwa of house number 812 Zambia Compound in Choma is facing two counts of defilement of a minor and indecent assault of a girl below the age of 16 on November 17, 2018.


Mweetwa denied the allegations and the court recorded pleas of not guilty in both charges.


Senior Resident Magistrate Idah Mupemo has since granted the accused a K10,000 bail in his own recognizance with two working sureties of fixed abode.


The Matter has been adjourned to December 10, 2018 for trial.
