THE Non Governmental Organization Coordinating Council NGOCC says Cliford Dimba popularly known as General Kanene must go back to prison as he was a danger to society.
NGOCC executive director Engwase Mwale said kanene needed more time in prison in order for him to learn to appreciate the rights of women and children.
Ms. Mwale was reacting to Kanene’s behavior a week after he was pardoned from prison by president Edigar Lungu.
It is alleged that the newly appointed ambassador for gender based violence beat up one of his three wives after she denied him sex on sunday.
Ms Mwale said that her organisation was concerned with the manner in which Kanene was pardoned and since written to the president asking him to reconsider its decision.
She said the reasons of his pardon were in any way convincing and as such Kanene must be allowed to serve his full jail sentence because he still had a long way to go where respect for women was concerned.
“For us as NGOCC the rights of women and children are of paramount importance and any body who disrespects this fact must not be entertained in the society and therefore our position is that Kanene mus go back to jail and finish his sentence may be he will learn to respect women”, she said.
AND POLICE say they have not received any complaint concerning General Kanene’s alleged beating of one of his three wives.
Police spokes person Charity Munganga Chanda said in an exclusive interview yesterday that her team was still waiting for a report from the victim but however confirmed having seen the pictures and stories on social media.
