Who is James?
A 13-year-old girl from Luanshya defiled in a drunken state.
“The suspect, whose name has been established as James, has been making love proposals to the minor, but she has been rejecting them. The culprit brought the woman to his home, defiled her while she was inebriated, and let her stay the night, according to him.
He claimed that after realizing she had been violated, the victim left the boyfriend’s home. According to Mr. Mweemba, the victim’s mother called the police and reported the incident.
He claimed that a medical report form was generated after the young person complained of aching private parts.
In a similar study, an 18-year-old Mufulira girl was raped by two guys who she can only recognize if they are seen.
According to Mr. Mweemba, on December 31, 2022, at around 00:00, the victim went to the Mwansanga pub in Francis Mukuka Township to celebrate the new year with her companions.
He claimed that while she was at the bar, she started drinking beer and that four men soon joined them.
And on January 1, 2023, at around 2:00 a.m., the victim decided to go home. One of the men with whom she had been drinking beer offered to accompany her, but she declined. Due to the close proximity of her residence to the bar, she began out by walking.
The four men she was drinking beer with followed her as she walked a short distance away from the bar. She was grabbed by two of them, who then alternated raping her. They all fled after that, he claimed.
With the assistance of bystanders, the victim, according to Mr. Mweemba, who experienced generalized body pains, was able to report the incident to the Kamuchanga police post and receive a medical report form.
What is Defilement?
Defilement is traumatic and often associated with psychosocial problems in children, parental distress, and significant social strain on family relationships and well-being. This study aimed at examining psychosocial outcomes in defiled children and their caregivers’ perceptions of the children’s trauma after defilement. The study was carried out between June 2015 and July 2016 at Kenyatta National Hospital and Nairobi Women’s Hospital.
Defilement is a debilitating experience for the victimized children with negative psychological, social, educational, and physical health outcomes that are not only detrimental to the affected child but also to their families and society at large (Reza et al., 2009; Madu et al., 2010; Collin-Vezina et al., 2013; WHO, 2014).

It’s high time these bar owners are held accountable for selling beers to minors… Start revoking their licenses…… I hope the styopeti man is caught real soon.
It’s pretty funny how they’ve only commissioned a manhunt over the guy that defiled her and not held the mother and bar owner accountable for the actions in this case. Where was the mother when she decided to go drinking?

The kid is 13 she can’t reason in a sound manner. Kids at that age are gullible. Parents are to blame together with the rapist. You can’t be saying you don’t feel pity for her how do you expect her to make good decisions she’s just a baby for goodness sake raised in a horrible environment. Stop blaming the victim.
