Police Spokesperson Rea Hamoonga also said in a statement that the auntie to the victim Febby Chabala aged 28 years old has also been arrested for conspiracy to defilement contrary to Section 150 of the Penal Code of the Laws of Zambia.
Mr Hamoonga said this follows a video that was making rounds on social media showing the victim narrating how she was sexually abused by the Chinese national.
He added that the mother to the victim Margaret Muyembe aged 38 years old of Kabanana Compound reported the matter to the police that her daughter was defiled by a Chinese national.
“Brief facts are that her auntie Febby Chabala aged 28 took her to Chikwa lodge in Chawama compound where she met a Chinese man identified as Mao Feng who had carnal knowledge with her at the named lodge,” Mr Hamoonga said.
He further said the incident is allegedly to have occurred between August and November 2020 at chikwa lodge in Chawama compound, Lusaka.
“A medical report form has since been issued to the victim and a request for a bone scan to determine the age of the child has been sent to the University Teaching Hospital as the mother has no under five card or birth record to show proof of under age,” he said.
The suspects will appear before court soon.
