NGOCC Commends Show Society for Cancelling Koffi Olomide Show

General News NGOCC Commends Show Society for Cancelling Koffi Olomide Show

Non-Governmental Organizations’ Coordinating Council (NGOCC) executive Director Engwase Mwale has commended the Agricultural and Commercial Society of Zambia Management for the cancellation of Congolese Rhumba giant Koffi Olomide’ planned shows in Lusaka, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.

In a statement Mr. Mwale said the Society has shown magnanimity and their resolve to take the fight against GBV to another level.

She said the action by the show society of Zambia management must serve as a clear message to all other would-be abusers that GBV committed against one, whether female or male is an affront to the global fight against the vice.

She has since called on the Zambian Government to ensure that the said public musical figure is held to account for his brutality.

Ms. Mwale noted that it is unacceptable that the man should continue doing musical concerts while facing charges regarding his violent behaviour.

She added that NGOCC will remain committed to championing the fight against GBV in Zambia and othe African countries.

NGOCC is among many Zambians that called for the cancellation of Koffi’s Lusaka concerts after he was deported from Kenya following a row over an incident in which he was captured at the airport kicking one of his female dancers.

The 60-year-old rumba star in 2012, he was convicted in the Democratic Republic of Congo, his home country, of assaulting his producer.
The court gave the singer a three-month suspended prison sentence.

The altercation with his producer, Diego Lubaki, was over a debt of about $3,700 (£2,800), the court heard.

In 2008, he was accused of kicking a cameraman from DR Congo’s private RTGA television station and breaking his camera at a concert in the capital, Kinshasa, following disagreement over recording rights.

In 2012, the same Congolese singer also have records of beating a Burundian national, an international Photo journalist Jean Mandela based in Zambia who insists that Koffi should be arrested.

“NGOCC commends this progressive position taken. Indeed the Society has shown magnanimity and their resolve to take the fight against GBV to another level”

“This must serve as a clear message to all other would-be abusers that GBV committed against one, whether female or male, is an affront to human rights and the global fight against the vice”

“We further call upon our government to bilaterally ensure that the said public musical figure is held to account for his brutality” Ms. Mwale said

  1. chalikanyanta chi makaka ichi kikiki. these are not men, dwindling wealth and popularity, age is affecting this man so much. he has become an angry old man

  2. Non-Governmental Organizations’ Coordinating Council (NGOCC) executive Director Engwase Mwale , how about wife battering running mate, why have you not talked about it???????

  3. Wife beating running mate was doing those activities while in PF. They never did anything about it then and have not seen it while in UPND. Why did they not talk about it then when it happened under PF noses? How about we talk about PF and police brutality under the instructions of Lungu, who attacked defenseless and unarmed innocent women and children who were in their private residence with tear gas leading to a woman ending up in hospital. Do you find that not worth to discuss and talk about????????
