Police have confirmed that the women’s movement led by NGOCC Ms Engwase Mwale this morning presented a petition at Police Headquarters against women’s rights violation in a video circulating on social media.

The video shows a middle aged woman who has since been identified as a resident of Kafue being abused by a gang of men in the night.

The petition was handed over to the Inspector General of Police, Mr Kakoma Kanganja by Ms Mwale who called on the police to bring the culprits to book.

The Zambia National Women’s Lobby has said it is appalled by the behavior of the young men who sexually assaulted a young woman in a video clip that is circulating on social media.This is according to a press statement released to the media by Zambia National Womens Lobby chairperson,Beauty Katebe.

We cannot find the rights words to describe the actions of the young men captured in the video save to say that their actions constitute a gross violation of human rights which should not be tolerated in Zambia, the statement read.

Such acts of barbarism should not be allowed to go unchecked in Zambia and all citizens have a duty to act against such behaviors from the young people in our communities.

We further urge the police to intensify their efforts in investigating the matter and bring to book all the people that were involved in dehumanizing the lady in question.

Meanwhile Police deputy spokesperson Rae Hamoonga says that police have been able to locate and interview the woman who was sexually assaulted by seemingly drunk men.

Deputy police spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said in a statement that, “police have made head ways in the investigations and we were able to locate the victim and interviewed her. Furthermore our police officers are on the ground looking for the perpetrators. Investigations are ongoing,”

  1. The Police are busy following around HH a.d GBM and guarding Post premises while women are vulnerable from the crininals let loose from prisons by Lungu to come and vote and cause chaos in the communities.

    • PF cadres beat up and undressed a UPND lady on youth day in front of the Vice President, 8 policemen were present and up to now no arrests have been made. When we say Edgar is the one perpetrating violence, this is exactly what we mean. Why has he not fired Kanganja to employ a competent IG? Commander in chief sleeping on duty. Jameson fintu!

    • I don’t know what the rape laws in Zambia say concerning this. Hopefully, these sexual predators will be locked up for a long time, to set an example for the others.

    • @ Joseph, Exactly man! While I am convinced that there are exceptional officers who are trully professional, drunk Lungu has intervened in their professionalism by puttingg certain PF rugs as head of Police, Army and Airforce….We are stamping out all such ill trained people within a week after 11

    • Also the people who are sharing this video should have the moral sense not to. Every time you send this video to the next person you brutalize this woman all over again.

    • This is where LAZ President must come in organise pro bono services to make sure the prosecution secures a conviction then the NGOCC must go on and petition the vice president and all the female minister to stand with this unfortunate Lady and offer her support and counselling.
      The president must ensure that the culprits are a lesson to others lets be practical and not just rush to give state funerals when young people die this Lady could be a sister, wife ,daughter or relation.
      Lets stop this nonsense of beating women whatever the circumstances!

  3. That video was very disturbing for me to watch….last time I watched such a video was of a Pakistan woman being attacked and stoned to death by mob of men for taking someone to court. They even dragged her body in the street in the presence of police officers.

    • I haven’t seen the video and hope not to see it. There is piling evidence of lawlessness every day and, true to form, the kama-President is in total denial about the violence or continues to insinuate that it is the opposition. The Police Force are clearly harbouring criminals or even aiding and abetting these monstrous crimes. The question is why Chakolwa Chagwa wants to continue as President when clearly he does not know what running a country entails.

    • Christanity is folly…the worst attrocities were committed in the name of christanity…you do not need religion to dictate to you what is wrong or right. You have a developed brain for a reason. Stick your Christian nation somewhere dark.
      Wake up and study about self!!

    • @ Jay Jay, your comments are coming out of a bitter heart. When something bad happens we should all find words of comforting the victims instead of spilling bitterness. Your comment is out of place and lacks direction. If you are disappointed with Christianity, find another forum where you can table your anger, not on such a case please! Be respectful of the victim’s feelings and life.

    • @PP – you are wasting your time….I wont stop till our children wake up I dont mind about docile brainwashed adults like yourself.
      What have I said that is dis-respectable about the victim… why should I be “bitter” about this rotten cancer that is literally killing our people called Christianity. Do you not know that Hilter was a staunch christian who also referred to this white man’s novel you call the bible to justify his evil.

    • @Jay Jay- Hitler’s behavior doesn’t change the truth. Nothing done can change the truth.
      You will one day meet with the Truth.
      For now, I can advise you to tone down. The invisible Christ is able to mend your broken and hurting heart. Whether you deny His existence or not, He loves you still.
      Praying for you, my brother.

    • You talk of the truth as if its there to see like the Pyramids and mummies of our Kings and Queens in Egypt …let me tell you this you as a black people became slaves and Christians at the same time..let that sink deep down your head. Do your research and wake up…this is why you wallow in poverty because you have been lied to like silly *****. Knowledge is freely available knowledge is not one book written by people who thought the world was flat and looked down your people because of their greatness.
      Wake up from your folly!!

  8. When my man akakanda had his life brutally ended in unusual circumstances with a fire arm, this selfsame group was unusually quiet.My point is they should also offer same activism when a woman offs a man, in this case they should play a role of council to unscrupulous women who send us early to meet our maker.

    I thankyou

  16. Watching this video left me so upset and helpless. What has become of zambia. Leadership should do something about this violence taking root in our country before we have a civil war. This is not the zambia I grew up in. Where are the leaders and security Wings? Where are the community leaders? Zambia is on the way to a failed state unless drastic measures are taken now by the government.

  22. I doubt if she will be able to identify all those gangsters since it happened in the night. Sometimes also our women should not expose themselves to such unthinkables.Don’t walk alone at night. Don’t go on a drinking spree alone at night. The scene is simply disgusting.

    • What happened to the luanshya woman who was undressed, her legs opened on the street by a group of youngmen and another woman allowed to violently push sund in her private parts.Those boys deserve to go to jail for a long time.Never heard the voices of our dear ladies.
      As for police I suppose they had better business following GBM&HH.

  23. Not surprised though was stressed after watching the clip,this is the behaviour of Pf cadres with support from there leadership and police cannot do anything.Remember sometime ago a lady was stripped naked in the presence of the Pf vice president,general secretary and other high hierarch Pf members no one condemned it only to hear from a Mumbi that Pf allows nakedness in public
    Please Zambians do not nurture this Pf beast you will regret in the coming years aka nika ndyonko more worse things to come if you vote for them.

  27. Instead of petitions and hopelessly farting around, these women should work with a good accounting firm and bank to set up a fund for the reward for turning in these criminals. A K300,000.00 reward will bring the scum in quick, fast and in a hurry.

  29. Anoko you low level idi.ot. This goes to show you are nothing but a filthy maggot. Here most are trying to condone such a heinous act of violence which could have led to murder and all you pathetic fool have to show for is by asking for the video? You are the kind of person who should case to exist and hope you get run over by a truck. Each time you see one pray. There is no excuse to even write such a thing which has no value, no merit and certainly no credit. People like you are a waste of precious time and air. You pathetic fool and hope if you have boys they don’t grow up like you.

  30. THERE IS A MAN LIVING IN MAIN KAMWALA NEAR REMAND PRISONS APPARENTLY EVEN WORKING FOR ZESCO MAIN OFFICE IN LUSAKA WHO HAS BEEN BEATING PEOPLE IN MAIN KAMWALA TOWNSHIP AND THE POLICE KNOW HIM VERY WELL BUT THERE IS NOTHING THEY HAVE DONE ABOUT IT. LAST WEEK, HE BEAT A YOUNG MAN WHO ALMOST DIED AND IS NURSING SERIOUS INJURIES. THIS CASE WAS REPORTED AT A POLICE STATION AND BELIEVE ME THIS MAN HAS NOT BEEN APPREHENDED AND TO DATE IS WALKING FREELY IN THE STREETS AND PROBABLY SCOUTING FOR MORE VICTIMS. DO THE POLICE WANT THIS MAN TO KILL SOMEONE BEFORE HE IS BROUGHT TO BOOK? WOULD I BE BLAMED IF I SUSPECTED THAT HEAVY BRIBING IS INVOLVED HERE. IT IS DISHEARTENING TO SEE US CITIZENS NOT BEING PROTECTED BY THE POLICE.

    • Half baked information. Is he beating for no reasons? Actually i also beat and not wast time taking you to Police if you mess up with me. Why do we like putting everything in the hands of police? They have limited resources that is why we need to do some citizen arrest. Are you telling me this man is a god to scare the whole community? Please chose wisely which communities to stay in otherwise you will continue crying. I miss kwatu ku chawama kwa siyatu.

  31. Degeneration of morality at best in a fictitious Christian nation! Here you have a bunch of hooligans with a half developed brain relishing in brutalizing a fellow human being in the most despicable way! When all had been done and excitement had worn off, the following day that is and some semblance of normalcy had restored in a functioning brain, what achievement did these hooligans think they had attained? When the leadership fails to provide good governance and police professionalism is left to the wind anarchy reigns! The brutalized woman needs the best she can get from the state organs and, respective NGO’S to rebuild her self esteem and reintegration in society. Meanwhile the atrocity perpetrators must be put away for a very very long time for their folly atop compensating the…
