Chief Kazembe threatening the family of the girl he is accused of defiling

Filed under: Breaking News |

The family of the 14-year-old girl that Chief Kazembe of Lumezi District in Eastern Province allegedly defiled are reportedly living in fear as the traditional leader has been allegedly threatening their lives.

Chief Kazembe, real name Vincent Banda, was arrested last month for defiling his 14-year-old niece and is currently out on bail. His case will come up on April 12.

This victim reported the case to Lundazi police station on February 12, 2019 but Chief Kazembe avoided arrest for some time by using his position and political connections. He was however arrested after the case caught the attention of some prominent NGOs.

A source has now told this publication that the traditional has been threatening the girl and her mother and has been boasting that the court case will come to nothing because he has corrupted two chiefs who sit in the House of Chiefs and they have “promised” him that they will find a way to kill the case.

The source is now worried that the same way Chief Kazembe managed to avoid arrest for so long he will go scot free.
