Inonge Wina condemns onlookers for falling to help the abused Kafue woman

General News Inonge Wina condemns onlookers for falling to help the abused Kafue woman

Vice President Inonge Wina addressing a rally at Ipusikilo Primary School ground in Lubansenshi constituency in Luwingu district to drum up support for the PF candidate for the parliamentary by-election, George Mwamba
VICE-PRESIDENT Inonge Wina has described as a bad reflection on society that some people stood by without offering help to a Kafue woman, who was last week beaten and sexually molested.

A cross section of society has condemned a group of men who filmed the beating and sexual molesting of a woman in a video clip which has gone viral on social media.

In the video, a man alleged to be the boyfriend is seen beating the unidentified woman, who seems unconscious and later other men strip her naked and insert objects in her private parts.

The Vice-President has since called on the police not to relent in arresting the perpetrators of gender-based violence (GBV) and other related vices in the country.

She said in an interview with journalists yesterday that it was inhuman that there was continued violation of women’s rights, through various forms of GBV and related vices.

“It is so unwarranted for another human being to treat another one like that in the manner it happened. Secondly, the fact that the way people who were seeing this situation and were willing to watch and do nothing about it, is a very bad reflection on our society,” Ms Wina said.

She said it was important that when something bad happened to another person, others should be able to swiftly move in and render help.

Ms Wina said GBV should be treated as a serious offence, as it was in violation of the rights of women, who were in most cases the victims.

In expressing displeasure over the continued violation of women’s rights, through social media, the Non-Governmental Organisations Coordinating Council (NGOCC) presented a petition to the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja at his office.

Police in Lusaka have since apprehended three people to assist with investigations.

  1. VP, they did exactly same thing as you did last May!!!
    Please, try to remember taking your prescription for senility and dementia.
    It may help with your selective senile memory.

    • These 1mbeciles who doing such barbaric things to our girls are getting a blessing from upnd whose leadership is convicted of such vices. Don’t vote for HH and GBM if you want our girls to be respected.

    • @ senile 1mbecile above
      It is criminal elements within PF and ZP which are encouraging such criminal act as a instrument of fear and terror.
      As to your 5tupid comment, try to remember that your “visionary” Antichrist and CONVICTED EMBEZZLER has PARDONED CONVICTED RAPIST of a MINOR and is now sharing platform with him.
      SHAME ON YOU 1MBECILE!!!

    • VP this is the Zambia that your Party of Fascists has unleashed on Zambians. Nobody, even yourself, dare say anything in case you get beaten by PF thugs in black shirts. That’s why you are commenting two weeks after the event and even then the comment had to be squeezed out of your croaky throat by journalists.

    • GBV is so close to GBM, too bad image for GBM.
      Back to Ba Inonge, I will not hesitate to say the first group to join PF were thugs like those in kafue. Then were replaced by crooks from RB doctrines. They can do anything barbaric.

    • LAWS MUST BE FORMULATED TO PROSECUTE THOSE WHO TAKE PLEISURE IN ABUSED PEOPLE- WHETHER IT BE A MAN, WOMAN, CHILD. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT JUST BE LOOKING AT SOMEONE OR A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS BEING ABUSED. IT MEANS EVEN THE ON-LOOKERS ARE ABUSERS.

  2. MAMA WINA, HOW MANY DAYS HAVE PASSED SINCE THIS THING HAPPEN AND YOU COMMENTENT TODAY WHERE IS THE FIRST LADY? SHE WAS ALL OVER THE WORLD PRETENDING TO STAND IN FOR WOMEN IN ZAMBIA BUT HAS NEVER EVER CONDEMNED AN ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ESPECIALLY BY HER HUSBANDS C YOU PEOPLE ARE A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES.

  3. Mama Wina, just a couple of weeks ago a girl was striped in public in front of 6 police officers and yourself. You remained mute up to this day. You were one on the onlookers at that incident and did not lift even a finger to help as the vice president. Today you are condeming those who emulate you!!

  4. This goes to say they go on Zambian Watchdog and read the Lusaka Times where people have condemned both Mama Wina and Esther Lungu for not addressing these issues. Just the other day we saw the presidents wife crying crocodile tears saying how she was disturbed yet it takes the general public to humiliate them before they come out. No mercy it is too late for women in power to sit idle while the whole nation is outraged. The reason citizens are upset has noting to do with other parties because PF is in power and they are the ones who are supposed to be leading the nation and dealing with these issues as they happen. How can a vision-less man release convicts with no contingency plan as to where they will go, how to monitor them, how will they fit into society, does he provide them with…

  5. Does he provide them with jobs and whom do they report to during their integration into society? This is what a clueless president does and unleashes harm to innocent citizens because he lacks simple brains or they’ve been fried by alcohol. Any leader will know in fact a lawyer should know it is foreseeable that violence and violent acts will be on the rise. To those pointing fingers at other parties, they are not the ones who released violent criminals onto your streets and once they rob you, rape your wives, children, sisters, aunts, grandmothers to men in your family is when you will scream foul. This is the worst president to date. Mama Wina please go back to bed before you have BP. Your time too is up just like PF. You have caused the whole country enough grief and everyone is fed…

  6. And what about the woman who was stripped naked by her fellow idi0tic pfools in are presence why didn’t she help don’t play doubles standards iwe ka mayo Satan ukulu.

  7. Thanks Inoge for the condemnation. But you’ve done so because the elections are near. Why did you not condemn your PF cadres who undressed an innocent UPND woman in front of you? Why have you been quiet when innocent people have been killed by your cadres? Maybe am asking too much because PF says one thing and does the opposite.

  8. BOMA WINA, I TRUST YOUR MOUTH PRETENDS AND YOUR PRETENCE IS SEEN TO BE HOLLOW. WE HAVE NEVER HEARD YOU COMMENT OIN THE WOMAN WHO WAS BEATEN, UNDRESSED AND ALMOST RAPED DAY LIGHT IN YOUR PRESENCE. HOW COME TODAY YOU PRETEND TO PRRETECT WOMEN? YOU ARE A RASCAL AND HYPOCRITIC WOMAN.

  9. BOMA WINA, I TRUST YOUR MOUTH PRETENDS AND YOUR PRETENCE IS SEEN TO BE HOLLOW. WE HAVE NEVER HEARD YOU COMMENT OIN THE WOMAN WHO WAS BEATEN, UNDRESSED AND ALMOST RAPED DAY LIGHT IN YOUR PRESENCE BY TH PF CADRES. HOW COME TODAY YOU PRETEND TO PRRETECT WOMEN? YOU ARE A RASCAL AND HYPOCRITIC WOMAN.

  10. Everyone jumps in and starts trying to apprehend a person when he is suspected of being a thief, but they do nothing when a woman is sexually assaulted. Politics has something to do with it during this time before the election, but the major problem is that sexual and gender-based violence is not taken seriously in Zambia. If it was, PF would have washed their hands of GBM the time he was arrested for beating his wife, and UPND would have never taken him on. Both of the major parties are hypocrites about GBV. They like announcing things to get donor money, but what is the real change in society?

  11. VP Inonge Wina was an onlooker when a young woman was being beaten and stripped naked. She did nothing but smile that same wicked smile of approval.

    Edgar always stands shoulder to shoulder with convicted rapists, molestors and defilers. His musicians are the susoected ritual murderers.

  12. When a country has wrong leadership, there are many unintended consequences. PF leadership has been total failure with many unintended consequences. This is just one such unintended consequence!
