Cases of defilement continue to be registered in Malawi's central region district of Ntcheu. 

The district has failed to reduce cases of such nature for the first half of the year.

Last year, 18 cases were reported as the case with this year as the number still remains stagnant.

And the latest case is of the arrest of a 47 year old MacDonald Chautsi from Saidi village, Traditional Authority Kwataine in the district.

Chautsi was arrested on Tuesday on allegations that he had his 13 year old epileptic step daughter.

Ntcheu Police publicist Hastings Chigalu disclosed that the suspect who is married to the mother of the victim defiled the girl while his wife was away.

"The suspect took advantage of his wife's absence to defile the step daughter then instructed her not report to anyone of the ordeal.

But despite the instructions, the victim revealed to her mother who later took the issue to the village headman before alerting the law enforcers," Chigalu disclosed.

Medical examination at Ntcheu District Hospital confirmed that the girl had indeed been defiled.

The suspect, who is also answering murder charges and currently on court bail, has been remanded to Ntcheu prison awaiting trial.

He has been charged with defilement which contravenes section 138 of the Penal Code.
