Police in Lusaka have prevented women from staging a demonstration against Finance Deputy Minister, Jonas Shakafuswa, over a statement which has injured women.

The women who were organised by the Non Governmental Coordinating Council were dispersed because they had not obtained a police permit.

Lusaka Division Police Commanding officer, Greenwell Ng’uni led a team of officers that stopped the planned protest outside cabinet office.

Mr. Nguni ordered the protestors to leave cabinet office premises because they didnt have a permit.

The Police, however allowed NGOCC Executive Director, Engwase Mwale and Young Womens’ Christian Association Executive Director, Katembu Kaumba to present a petition to Vice President, Rupiah Banda.

The women are demanding the dismissal of Mr. Shakafuswa from his ministerial position.

Mrs. Mwale later told ZNBC in an interview that her organisation was disturbed with the utterances attributed to Mr. Shakafuswa.

She said Mr. Shakafuswa’s remarks during a drinking spree at Parliament motel were demeaning to women.

According to one newspaper article, Mr. Shakafuswa did not like a statement attributed to Chikankata Member of Parliament, Muji Habeenzu for stating that parliament motel had been turned into a brothel by some MPs.

  1. “ZAMBIA THE REAL AFRICA”

    Our WOMEN deserve all the respect we can master.

    I would like to apologize to all Zambian women for the conduct of some MP’s and ministers. Not all men in Zambia are unintelligent.

  4. NGOCC and WCA can you tell me 1- what you have done to this woman who went to sell herself to shaka’s knowing he was a married man? causing problems in their house, may the wife investigate and charge.2- what are you doing to those zimbabwean women finishing marriages in l/stone which has been turned into a town of prostitutes? young girls are all over town half dressed coming from your home’s as mothers, pliz the man has even gone to an extent to use the wife to apologise to the nation i guess he is really sorry and ashamed of himself,pliz women as mothers forgive him.

  5. It’s like this has been a tradition at this motel, to me it sounds like he is not the only one but if so how many of them are you going to drop? for a thief to be caught he might have started some time back. Mr so called Habeenzu MP, some times when the peers meet they play funny games, for you to tell i guess you had something personal abt the man, are you aware of the psychological damage you have caused to Shaka’s wife and children? may be she can even leave and the children suffers coz of your lies, you are more than a woman my dear.Tell me if you have never had an extra marital affair in life as a man even a one night stand, imagine if somebody told yr wife! shame ( mouth incontinence)

  8. LPM. We will now see what is the real story with your stance after this investigation is complete. Well Shaka already said that he is leaving and so LPM may have have already said the right thing to him.

    Tax money is for the development of the whole nation not for turning women into objects.

  11. So where’s all this leading? Clearly some of our elderly leaders have been carried away by the pleasures this world has to offer. A lot of moral questions arise concerning this matter. Let the law prevail and who ever is in the wrong shall be dismissed. Especially this Jonas Shakafuswa guy

  14. A person is accorded the respect they get according to their behaviour/conduct, Men or Women alike.

    If a man has more repect for a prostitute than his wife, that speaks volume about his character. He should leave his wife and marry his concubine.

    The minister who passed those comments may be right when refering to certain individuals and not all, but instead of uttering comments irresponsibly, as a law maker, he should look for ways to correct the situation. For his irresponsibility, he should be disciplined.

    Famous Saying;

    Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.

  17. Even as this mother of hysteria rages on, there are lessons to be learnt by all of us that aspire to enter politics at one time or another. Dont just throw stones, search your hearts as well. As for Shakafuswa, he’s screwed politically. If there to be snap elections in is katuba constituency today and he makes to stand against me, i would beat him pants down. In short hes history.

  19. #24. I like your point. There are lots of issues that our women have to look at and probably hold serious PUBLIC demonstrations on. Among them, I believe, is the issue in one of the STORIES ON HERE – LT – about the girls’ 4 times higher the the boys’ HIV/AIDS prevalence rate.

  20. Wanama #22. Your mother and My mother all had to be ‘slaughtered’ so that we are born. unless you are a product of infidelity and do not know who your father is, but still a man slaughtered her. Or maybe you are an artificial inseminated Chap or a clony.
    This is an open secret which chaps like you feel ashamed to discuss. Women are as bad as men when it comes to extra marital affairs and being laid, only that them are more secretive. I only condemn Shakas for opening his sour mouth carelessly and that other Chap, being poor enough not to pay for Sex.

  21. SHAKAFUSEX IS NOT PART OF THE FAMILY TREE, HE IS JUST LENJE, THATS ALL. HE IS FROM MUNGULE, IAM FROM CHIEF CHITANDA, BA LEVY IS FROM CHIEF CHAMUKA, SHIKAPWASHA IS FROM CHITANDA, CHITUWO IS FROM MUMBWA, WHICH FAMILY TREE BA NGELE, IWE No 10 ???.
    CHILUBA WAS FROM LUAPULA, WHEN HE WAS SURROUNDED BY MWACHUNGWA, SATA, SHIBESAKUNDA, LUPANDO, KATELE AND OTHER BEMBAS IT WAS NOT A FAMILY TREE. COMMON REAL REASONABLE ZAMBIANS BE REAL, AND JUST HATE LEVY ON OTHER MATTERS NOT THE “FAMILY TREE” NONSENSE.

  23. Just advertise for some women to be “slaughtered” for a small fee by parliamentarians at the motel, you will be surorised as to how large the number will be of women. The queue would snake from the motel gate to as far as northmead bus stop. And alomost all thw women who were protesting against Shakafuswa would be busy jostling in the queue. Damn these women!!!

  26. Mrs Shakafuswa needs help. The woman is in denial and she will say anything to defend her denial. In fact she is not defending her husband but cannot find the real culprit, but stand besides her cheating hubby. Look at all women that have been cheated on. This a victim mentality and will realize that something is wrong in her relationship after some time. She is a victim in all this saga. The women’s group must come to her aid, otherwise she is being abused emotionally and physically by this evil doer by the name of Shakafuswa.

  32. It is unfortunate that such unpalatables targeted at our women folk could be attributed to Hon.Elephant Shakafuswa.Like other elephants, he threatened to beat up another MP at parliament Motel.As for your heading ‘women are still angry with shakafuswa’, I beg to differ with you. To some he is a potential client,while others are condemning out of jealousy.Without going far, his wife seems to have no problem about it.Except for the stupid statement he made, the rest is private life,which needs spiritual guidance.Some of those women in NGOs openly condemning the elephant date married men, and would have no problems dating if Shakafuswa if he approached them, while others are home wreck

  35. #15. For the record, he is a University of Zambia Graduate in Economics. Let’s face it, men say a lot of things at pubs or bars that go unprinted. Habeenzu just has a personal grudge and this thing has been blown way out of proportion. Suffice to say a lot goes on at National Assembly Motel for it to be discussed in Parliament in the first place. Loud mouth or not! Why not talk about other serious issues like the guys who were killed in misisi compound? I kinda agree with #6& 24

  36. Women should learn to respect themselves first and not let anyone slaughter them. Hey it takes two to tangle. Monica, you wanted it and got it. Bet you knew he was married! As for the NGO women, I bet most of their kids have different fathers. Women please, lead by example.

  38. Dear LT administrator,

    Firstly, I commend you for a great job in availing Zambians, Lusaka residents in particular, a forum of expression. As for those of us who are far away from home, this site puts us in tune with events back home and makes us feel at home again.
    However, there are only 2 things that I feel are missing:

    1. Kindly cite the origin of your reports.

    2. The following set of rules are unfortunately not observed:
    No obscene, racist, sexist, or profane language.
    No spamming, advertising, or duplicating posts.
    No personal attacks against other users.
    Nothing in violation of Zambian law.
