A SIXTY-FIVE-YEAR-OLD man of Serenje who defiled his 13-year-old great granddaughter after tricking her to collect fish from his bedroom has been jailed for 25 years by the Kabwe High Court.
The same court has also jailed a 43-year-old cleaner of Kabwe General Hospital for 20 years for defiling a 30-year-old mentally-ill woman while she was admitted to the hospital.
Kabwe High Court Judge Kelvin Limbani sentenced Felix Kalunga, a farmer of Ng’aswa Maslwa in Serenje on Thursday.
Kalunga was found to have defiled his great granddaughter, who was in Grade Six at the time, on April 29, 2015.
Mr Justice Limbani said Kalunga’s behaviour as a great grandfather and a senior citizen was shameful because he was expected to protect and care for his great granddaughter.
