The teacher told the girl’s father that her daughter had been spotted in their neighbours compound severally.
“Yesterday, I bumped into my child’s teacher, who informed me he had spotted her several times at my neighbour’s compound. At 4pm, I went to the said-couple’s house and found my girl,” said the father.
After finding her daughter, the class four pupil revealed to her dad that the couple, Mwalewa Kombe and his wife, rented a room for her where men would sleep with her in exchange for money.
