Former football star Mapopa Msukwa has been arrested and is being kept in Police custody at Chileka Police Station for allegedly defiling his 8 year old step-daughter.
Chileka Police Publicist Grace Mwale has confirmed Msukwa and his wife’s arrest.
She said currently investigations are still underway and once they finish, the two will appear before court to answer their respective charges.
