A 37-Year-old man of Kapiri Mposhi has been convicted for defiling a 12-year-old girl.
Before Kapiri Mposhi Magistrate Mwila Malupande was Joseph Kopulande a general work of Riverside compound who was charged with one count of defilement.
This is contrary to section 138(1) of the Penal Code chapter 87 as amended by Act number 15 of 2005 and amendment number 2 of 2011 of the Laws of Zambia.
Particulars of the offence were that on 17 May 2019 around 15:00 hours Kopulande had unlawful canal knowledge of a girl under the age of 16 years.
In this matter, the prosecution called seven witnesses among them the victim who testified how Kopulande defiled her after she had gone to visit her friend in the neighborhood.

Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
