Twenty-one years old man from Phamong in the Quthing district, was arrested by the police on the 17th July this year, accused of rape and forced marriage to a thirteen years old girl.

The Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) deputy spokesperson Sergeant ‘Mareabetsoe Mofoka, said the man and the girl were allegedly in a relationship, and the man forced the girl into marriage.
