Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has confirmed that controversial musician Clifford Dimba aka General Kanene’s third wife Sharon was savagely beaten up.
But Mr Mwamba has attempted to link General Kanene’s first wife to Sharon’s beating after he posted on his Facebook page that it is not clear who beat her up between Mrs Kanene (First wife) and General Kanene.
He also stated that the issue which he called a private family tiff has been blown by President Edgar Lungu’s known enemy But what is clear is that, has been.
Mr Mwamba also linked the expose to Hot FM newscaster Hugh Jempa Mpundu and his boss Oscar Chavula for leaking photos showing Sharon with a swollen eye.
Below is Mr Mwamba’s Facebook posting.
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE BEATING OF SHARON NGANDULA (The so called Mrs. Kanene)
On Sunday 19th July 2015 Clifford Dimba picked Sharon Ngandula.
Although Clifford is married, Sharon is the second person he has a child with (and she calls herself his third wife).
Dimba popularly known as Gen. Kanene wanted to verify critical information relating to certain matters.
1. Clifford left her pregnant when he went to prison.
2. He also wanted to establish if the born child was his.
3. He also wanted to establish why she was co-habiting with another man and only left him when she heard that he had been pardoned.
4. Wanted to verify whether she has been living with her mother in John Laing, or at her new boyfriends place in Chawama.
It remains unclear at this stage what happened as the name of Mrs. Kanene (the original Mrs. Kanene comes in the picture).
In the family meeting convened on Monday evening to establish facts and resolve the matter, Sharon’s brother Hugh Japer Mpundu who works for Hot FM is accused of distorting facts and published the picture and story through Hot Fm Proprietor Oscar Chavula.
When pressed to establish who beat her and caused the swelling on her left eye between Mrs. Kanene and Clifford Dimba, Sharon kept on blaming the brother for his opportunistic actions and for taking a picture without her consent.
She insisted that what happened among the three and her relationship with the father of her child is what the family should resolve.
But what is clear is that a private family tiff, has been blown by President Edgar Lungu’s known enemy.
It’s a story whose manufacturers (Hot Fm) wish to target and discredit President Edgar Lungu and his actions.
So the Zambian Watchdog and The Post will celebrate a story of this magnitude will twist and turn the details in gory details to scandalise government decision to pardon Dimba.
But the facts remain:
To date there is no complaint, no victim and no official Police report and no medical record.
Sharon has chosen to remain silent insisting that this matter is private and remains between Clifford, the child between them and herself.
