Chilubi District Administrative Officer-DAO Deogratius Mwamba has denied allegations of defiling a 14-year old girl of Chilubi.
Reacting to a trending news item posted on social media, Mr. Mwamba charged that he is not that stupid to sink that low to the extent of defiling the minor as reported to the police by the father of the girl.
He claims that it was simply a misunderstanding and as such the girl’s parents have since apologized for bringing his name into ridicule and shame.
The District Administrative Officer says people should not be quick to judge insisting that nothing happened.
Mr. Mwamba who described the allegation as frivolous, vexatious, false and malicious disclosed that he wanted to take legal action against some people but was restrained by elders.
Yesterday, police in Northern Province disclosed that a senior government official in Chilubi District has allegedly defiled a 14-year old girl.
Provincial Police Commissioner Richard Mweene said Mike Maembe the father of the defiled girl reported the matter to Chilubi police that his daughter was defiled by 38 year old Deogratius Mwamba who is Chilubi District Administrative Officer-DAO.
Commissioner Mweene said that the incident happened between 18th and 19th November 2017, around09:00 hours and 12:00 hours at Muchinchi Township in Chilubi.
