THE Ministry of Gender says it is saddened by the killings of females in Lusaka and has since called on women to take measures to protect themselves by not moving in dangerous places.

Commenting on the recent killings of two women in Lusaka in unclear circumstances, the ministry has urged the investigative wings to expedite the investigations pertaining to the killings.

Last month, two females were murdered and their bodies were dumped in maize fields near their respective residences in Makeni area.

Minister of Gender Victoria Kalima said the perpetrator should be brought to book.

Ms Kalima has urged women to be on the lookout and always protect themselves.

And the minister has urged women to turn in large numbers to commemorate this year’s Women’s Day.

She said the theme fits very well with what Government is doing in promoting gender equality and parity in places of work.

Ms Kalima said her ministry has been going round in schools to ensure that young women are educated.

“I want to encourage women to be part of the day as it is meant for us. I also call on men to join in the celebrations,” she said.

She further said Government has engaged former first ladies to give motivational talks to girls as a way of encouraging them to aspire for academic excellence.

Ms Kalima said the former first ladies have been engaged to help girls realise that other than being wives of presidents in the past, they are also educated.

“The three first ladies are Maureen Mwanawasa, who is a lawyer, Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata, a renowned medical doctor and researcher, and Thandiwe Banda, who is a teacher,” she said.

    Zambian women should start carrying tear gas where ever they go, it will be useful incase they come across aggressive savages!

  2. This is the worst minister that has been appointed. Kalima is not even qualified to hold a position of a minister, a prostitute minister! Useless! Rubbish

  3. @lupoko BALIMIKANA FYE BA lupoko. JUST TALK TO HER NICELY, SHE MAY ACCEPT YOUR PROPOSAL. DONT SPEAK RUBBISH HERE. WHY ARE YOU CALLING HER A PROSTITUTE? ONLY A MAN WHO IS FOOLISH AFTER BEING REJECTED WILL BEHAVE THAT WAY. SHAME ON YOU.

  4. Protecting women and girls is our duty all of us everywhere. It is not their own issue! And by the way, let me ask those mistreating women and girls, why treat women like animals? Are not ashamed? Not even fearing GOD? Reeally? Can you do that to your biological mothers and sisters? SHAME!! And you Mom, Minister Victoria Kalima”- what are your concrete action plans and strategies you are doing to assist and help your fellow women? Or just telling them that they should protect themselves while you yourself relaxing and potraying your face around? Wake up and do something!!!
