MMD Lusaka Youth Chairman threatens Ms. Nawakwi with gang rape

Women in Law and Development in Africa (WiLDAF) and Women and Law in Southern Africa (WLSA) have joined other Organisations and Individuals in condemning Lusaka Province MMD Youths for their utterances against FDD president Edith Nawakwi.

The two women groups registered their displeasure over the statement in a joint statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today and signed by WiLDAF Regional Chairperson Gladys Mutukwa and WLSA Regional Coordinator Matrine Chuulu.

The organizations observed that the utterances by MMD Lusaka Youth Chairman Chris Chalwe on Sunday to gang rape Ms. Nawakwi underscores the impunity with which women’s rights have been violated without due protection from government.

They said their organizations noted with deep regret that since Sunday no leader both in government and the MMD has condemned the insulting statement.

She said Mr. Chalwe’s intentions against Ms. Nawakwi are a grave insult to the dignity of Zambian women and should render him and his gang open to police probe.

“We wish to remind Mr. Chalwe and his gang that gang rape is not only inhuman but constitutes one of the worst forms of violence against women.” The statement said in part.

They noted that the impunity with which the statement was made should remind Zambians of the daily silent suffering of thousands if not millions of women at the hands of perpetrators of violence against women.

They have since called on the police to take appropriate action against Mr. Chalwe for threatening violence.

The women organizations further called on the MMD leadership, religious leaders, political party leaders and the Zambian society at large to take a definitive stand on violence against women in Zambia.

    The Rev Shikapwasha is always very quick to defend the govt on petty innuendo that is far less serious than this .
    Please Mr Govt spokesperson , show real responsibility and explain what action is going to be taken. You are a reverend and this is serious.

    The all lot of I.G Kabonde has said threatening to Gang-ra.pe Nawakwi is not an offense. In short Kabonde is saying any person can threaten to gang-ra.pe even Thandiwe RB , it will not be an offense. Thats the new law of MMD-police force under which Kabonde is the I.G.

Let them know we are brave and wise people that hold our women highly, even though some are genuine misfits. The I.G of police said what? My prayers for my country and the protection of it’s people. Let’s us the Lord Jesus to help us, while we fight even in the mental physical state for our freedoms.

    I am so angry I cannot even organize my thoughts nor type straight. During the struggle in Boznia Herzegovina the wading factions would build frontlines to protect the women. The ensured that the women escaped first into refuges if necessary. I do not support war mor wish it on my country or continent. Even on the world, lesson is the protected the vulnerable in society first; so as normacy could be carried forward. This is when the so called church in Zambia should bark the most, infact all churches should have come as one to voice their anger on this matter

    It is realy sad that the I.G Kabonde can permit ra.ping women at will. Where is Zambia going? Police service is another wing of MMD where the I.G Kabonde is leader. Zambians brace your selves for more Ra.pes from MMD-thugs. It is really Zambia will never mature but will alway be backward in the civlised world. The president RB is even happy about such reckless threats full of shame and disgrace to the women of Zambia whom MMD says they care for. What a country full of useless oficers like Kabonde. Kabonde should resign if he has any respect remaining in his brainless head. SHAME ON KABONDE. WHAT A USELESS I.G ZAMBIA HAS.!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I say I will **** Tandiwe Banda because her husband moves a lot, or I want to assasinate Banda at the airport because he is always there, it will not constitute any crime? Why is there war on terror? even following people in there own countries to kill them just because they have plans to bomb somewhere?
    Is kabonde telling me that sensetization on HIV and AIDS doesn`t make any sence until someone gets it?

    Is this just a new law in Zambia?
    I ask this because I have seen people going to jail just for threatning someone even if he has no weapon.

First they killed a marketeer at Chisokone Market and we heard nothing from these MMD supporters on this blog. Now they want to gang **** an innocent lady. This is what was happening in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and now MMD is about to do it in Zambia. Come on MMD supporters in the diaspora, who are you going to gang ****?

    This is a crime period. There should not be any debate. A threat to murder constitutes a crime. Re.aping is a serious offence that should not be entertained. Nawakwi should do us a favour and press charges. The women movement including, Thadiwe should organize demonstrations across the nation. We are SUPPOSE to be a nation of laws. MMD and the police should not bend the laws to suit them. If nothing happens to this *****, every man on this blog should sign a petition in support of our mothers sisters and daughters to Thandiwe.

    On Chansa kabwela`s case Rupia Banda said that he has a lot of respect for women, which women did he mean? Is Nawakwi a man or a woman? Four guys where killed at Acades shoping center by the Antflying squard just for planing to robe one guy busines man by following him from the airport. At that time they didn`t still but why did they loose their lives?

    I don`t thing Kabonde was sobber when talking, we can forgive him!

    There only time someone mentions something of this nature is when they have done before or they fantasize doing it. The police must watch the history of all such cases in Lusaka. Probably MMD has been in the forefront of all of them. This is not intimidation but a true nature of MMD and its supporters. Have you seen any comments from them be it here on LT or in Zambia? Nada, zero. They are all for it. What about from Banda, Shikapwasha, Mulongoti, Kaande, why are they mute on this issue? What about the MMD bloggers like Veteran, Capitalist, Bootlicker? Why are they quiet? One reason can be deduced from their silence. They are for this horrible, inhuman and barbaric behavior. I told you. All these guys are at the embassies.

    There is no justification whatsoever for this repugnant behaviour by these MMD cadres and I call upon the Republican President to publicly and unconditionally condemn this behaviour. It is time that decency was brought into Zambian politics. If anything this is more immoral and indecent than Chansa Kabwela’s case. Can anyone imagine how they would feel if someone threatened to **** their mother, sister or wife? What if it was the first lady? Ah! NO! This is like undressing a person in public and I beg the President in the name of God to chastise these MMD members immediately!

    Chalwe and his gang should be arrested immediately and put on trial. MMD doesn’t have leadership, it seems all those leaders are very happy with their cadres more especially those that are beating pipo for no apparent reason. From Beating innocent citizens to raping alamwandi I wonder where Zed is heading to. Most of those cadres are uneducated that is why their selfish leaders are using them to threaten,Insult, Abuse, Beat, Rape and very soon killing will be on their list.Its is such a shame that MMD leadership is taking advantage of their cadres simply becoz their are ignorant of law. IT MAKES ME SICK TO IMAGINE A CHIPERSON ANNOUNCING PUBLICLY THAT THEY WILL RAPE EDITH AND THEY GET AWAY WITH IT!!

    if Nawakwi is raped the police have self confessed culprits. It will maake their work easier. Even before she is raped as they have indicated the police should question them and let them stay in the cells over a weekend or so while the interrogation is going on. It is not acceptable for one to utter such serious comments irrispective of whether you are from a rulling party or not. The pary concerned should distance itself from such comments.

    Chalwe will not be arrested because he, like ZANAMA hooligans are ‘above the law’. ZANAMA hooligans have been committing serious crimes at Chisokone market where they even have a ‘cell for torturing people’ but nothing has happened. After being promised title deeds by the president they had more audacity, their latest victim is dead. Chalwe is still in court for assaulting The Post and Times of Zambia journalists. At the same courts members of the opposition are beaten by Chalwe’s fellow hooligans in full view of the police. The police do nothing! The president does nothing. Everyone else does nothing! Life goes on.
