ZAF Officer Rapes Patient, Bolts

POLICE in Mumbwa are looking for a Zambia Air Force clinical officer who has gone into hiding after being released on police bond for allegedly sedating and raping an 18-year-old patient.

And the victim is demanding K32,500 from Lieutenant Cacious Sivanga as compensation for the pain inflicted on her and her family. Police have since arrested Lt Sivanga’s father Modern, who had signed his police bond, and charged him with aiding a suspect to escape.

Central Province police commissioner Standwell Lungu confirmed that Lt Sivanga, a ZAF Mumbwa base clinical officer, fled after being arrested for allegedly raping a patient, and his whereabouts were unknown.

“Yes, it is true that there was someone who was arrested in Mumbwa for alleged rape and he is a clinical officer from ZAF. But I doubt if he is on police bond because I have not been informed by the officers in Mumbwa,” he said.
