A NDOLA man has admitted in his defence that he once forced his two-year-old stepson to suck his manhood while they stayed in Kapiri Mposhi.
In this case Philemon Bwalya, 26 is charged with unnatural offence contrary to the laws of Zambia.
Particulars are that on July 13, the victim’s mother left her son in the custody of her husband (Bwalya) and when she returned, she found semen on the child.
During trial, the mother told the court how her husband forced the child into the act for him to get rich.
The 20-year-old woman said her husband had joined the illuminati group which told him to get into a covenant for him to be rich.
The mother told the court that this was not the first time her husband did that to her son.
She said the first incident occurred when they stayed in Kapiri Mposhi.
She said after finding out, she called her relatives, who confronted her husband.
The victim’s mother said her husband told her relatives that he was under the instructions from the illuminati to make a covenant by making his wife’s son to engage in the act so that he can be rich.
She said after her husband’s confession, her family led by her older sister Beatrice Mulunga apprehended him and reported to Jacaranda police.
Ndola magistrate Monica Mutinta then found Bwalya with a case to answer and placed him on his defence.
When the matter came up for defence yesterday, Bwalya first denied ever engaging in any such acts.
“They kept asking me the same question all the time when I was drunk. They asked me what I had done but I said nothing. I can’t accept anything that I did not do,” Bwalya said.
But when reminded during cross examination that before he took plea, he had admitted forcing the boy to suck his manhood, Bwalya responded in the affirmative.
“Yes, I admitted the charge. I admitted because I was beaten badly. In Kapiri Mposhi, I did it, but not in Ndola. I did not dispute the fact of what I did. That is all in my defence and I close my case,” said Bwalya.
Magistrate Mutinta has set September 24 for judgment.
