A 31-year-old nurse of Kitwe allegedly raped while on duty in ward, police say

Published

A 31-YEAR-OLD nurse of Kitwe has allegedly been raped by her workmate, a clinical officer while on duty.

It is alleged that incident happened at Care well private clinic in Nkana East while the victim was working when a clinical officer identified as Mathew Fwalanga took advantage of her.

Copperbelt Deputy Commissioner of Police  Bothwell Namuswa has confirmed the incident in an interview.

Mr Namuswa said the suspect remained behind to study after he knocked off from work.

He said the victim asked to use the suspect’s phone but as she returned it, Fwalanga grabbed her hand and twisted her right hand from behind, pulled her into the ward.

Mr Namuswa said Fwalanga then forced her to bend down and pulled down her uniform trousers and pant and then penetrated her.

“It is alleged that the nurse asked for help from the suspect to phone the security guard so that she can send him to buy food. It was at this point that the clinical officer took advantage of the victim knowing that they were only two in the clinic and raped her,” Mr Namuswa said.

He said attempts by the victim to shout for help did not yield any results as there was no one at the clinic.

The deputy provincial police commissioner said after he finished raping her, the suspect left the health institution and is currently on the run.

“We have launched a manhunt to bring the suspect to book while the victim has been taken into hospital for medical examination and treatment after she complained of abdominal pains, “he said.

This comes barely days when Zambia is commemorating 16 days of gender activism to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.
