Zambia Police in Lusaka yesterday stormed a house along Lake Road in Woodlands and stopped a wild s*x party and arrested over 70 children between the ages of 13 and 18.
Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo confirmed this in an interview saying the owner of the house had not yet been identified.
“There is a house in the [Woodlands] neighborhood which young boys and girls use for illicit immoral acts,” Katongo said.
“Yesterday a report was received from a concerned citizen and about 70 of them were rounded up by police and picked. They were locked up but the detention facility was not enough to accommodate all of them.”
She said the children admitted the charge and paid admission of guilt.
“They were then charged with conduct likely to cause a breach of peace after which they paid admission of guilty and they were released,” said Katongo.
“Police are looking for the owner of the house. This happened between 17:00 hours and 18:00 hours. Some bottles of beer and used condoms were found at the same premises.”
Meanwhile a witness told News Diggers! that the children were over 100.
“They could have been hundred or two hundred. They were a lot of them, it seems some ran away. After they were all picked up, some parents flocked to Woodlands police to bail them out in the evening yesterday. I am sure some are still there as we speak because their parents didn’t even know.”
