A BUILDER of Lusaka’s Chamba Valley has been dragged to court for allegedly defiling four girls on the same day.

Joseph Winga, 35, is facing four charges of defilement of a child.

In count one, it is alleged that on July 3, 2020, Winga defiled a 13-year-old girl.

In count two, it is alleged that on the same date, Winga defiled another girl aged 13.

In count three, it is alleged that Winga, on the same date, defiled a 10-year-old girl.

And in count four, it is alleged that on the same date, Winga defiled a girl aged nine.

When the matter came up, Wednesday, Lusaka Principal Resident Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile allocated the case to magistrate Faides Hamaundu.

However, when the matter was called before magistrate Hamaundu, Winga was not in court.

Allegations in this matter are that on the material day, the children were taken to Winga’s house by a woman from the neighborhood who jokingly said that the four children were Winga’s wives.

It is further alleged that Winga got the children into his house where he allegedly defiled them while the door to the house was locked and released them afterwards.
