She says the manifestation of GBV starts within the heart and it disrupts peace at all levels.


Mrs. Wina has called on Zambians to work together to rid society of the GBV scourge.


The Vice President was speaking on arrival at Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International airport in Livingstone where she is scheduled to officially open the COMESA Port Management Conference for East and Southern Africa.


Mrs. Wina, who is accompanied by Minister of Transport and Communication Brian Mushimba, was welcomed by Minister of Higher Education Nkandu Luo, Southern Province Permanent Secretary Sibanze Simuchooba and other senior government and PF and MMD officials among others.


And Mr. Simuchooba has informed the Vice President that rains have started on a good note in the province this season and a good harvest is expected.


Mr. Simuchooba also says the general situation in the province is peaceful.


  1. I completely agree with BoMa Inonge, 3 things which brings bad temper, luck of:
    1. Sex (romantic one, not your Mutototo based). And some guys just travel around leaving their bedroom unattended.
    2. Food, and I mean hunger like in Zimbabwe.
    3. Beer, if you are known to drink then drink.
    Pick 2 items above everyday, you be a happy man like me and at peace with ALL women.

    • No,the only thing that brings about GBV is lack of respect. We should know the right words to use when faced with a marital dispute

  2. What is the definition of gender based violence? Is it male to female violence or vice versa? I think that both sexes can be violent towards the other.

    • @Enlighten, I can be a super star on this topic because I have tried nearly all races.
      Women are more violent, BUT but better than these cowards who end up protecting themselves with fists, instead of romancing.
      Wile song: ” ulampapusha sometimes ulankalifya, …nati kankukama pa mukoshi, nasanga ndeku kissinga webo!!”
      Guys play that song in this 16 days.
      LT post it here!!

  3. She was speaking at Harry Mwaanga Nkhumbula airport. Now both leaders are giving press conferences at airports?

    Gender violence has increased proportionate to women’s rights. Our grandmothers didn’t know any women’s rights and GBV never existed because they were submissive and respected their husbands. Today white people has told our women about women’s rights and all he’ll has broken loose.

  4. Mental instability, lack of effective communication, extramarital activities, poverty, arrogance , alcohol and illicit drugs …. triggers are many to list down .

  5. GBM is a major culprit when it comes to GBV but his fellow cultists will pretend that they dont about it. Go to the courts in Lusaka and you will find GBM’s name on GBV folders in court.
