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.

    I believe what you published was actually very logical. But, consider this, suppose you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title to possibly grab people's attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.|

    I'm not sure exactly why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.|

    Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog like this take a large amount of work? I have no understanding of coding but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just wanted to ask. Kudos!|
