Copperbelt Minister Japhen Mwakalombe and Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe are some of the high ranking government officials that been implicated in sex scandal involving young female Journalists in Ndola.

This week, the Ndola Press Club issued a statement warning senior government officials to stay away from sexually exploiting young female Journalists in the city in exchange for jobs.

The names of the young female Journalists have been withheld to protect their identity.

But investigations have revealed that Mr Mwakalombe and his P.S Mr Nundwe are at the centre of the sex for jobs scandal.

Sources at the Provincial Administration in Ndola confirmed that both Mr Mwakalombe and Mr Nundwe have been promised jobs to young and upcoming Journalists if they offered their bodies.

They revealed that a young Journalist working for SUN FM in Ndola has been offering sexual favours to Mr Mwakalombe who promised her a job in Lusaka at Hot FM where he is a minority shareholder.

“What is happening is that these senior officials have gone on rampage abusing young girls in the media especially in Ndola. In the case of Mr Mwakalombe, the young girl in question even travelled to Hot FM in Lusaka on the understanding that Mr Mwakalombe owns the station and will be given the job as promised but Hot FM management turned her down,” the sources said

They added, “Apart from the Minister and the P.S, we also have some PF Councillors who are also in the same habit of sleeping with young Journalists so that they can give them some money, trips and jobs.”

“For Mr Mwakalombe, here at the Office, we are not even surprised. His sexual immorality is well documented but it is just said that he is lying to these young girls. Some of them are actually very young, he is old enough to be the Dad.”

The sex scandals have upset the media fraternity on the Copperbelt prompting the Ndola Press Club to issue a statement warning politicians to stop preying on young female Journalists.

“The Ndola Press Club has recieved with sadness; verified and reliable information of abuse on some female journalists in Ndola. A certain clique of politicians who include some councillors and other high ranking officials within here have been linked to this unfortunate events where they are duping journalists of finding them better jobs in exchange for sex,” said Ndola Press Club Acting President Mike Mubanga.

“In one of the information recieved, a politician promised a female reporter a job at a radio station but as soon as he had sex with her, nothing has come forth. These events are unfortunate and uncalled for, let us not use our positions or status in society to gain advantage,” the statement read.

“We wish to call upon the perpetrators of wrongdoing to desist from doing so, failure to which we shall be left with no option but to expose and report them. We also wish to call upon journalists especially the new ones in the industry not to fall for such tricks but at the same time, conduct themselves in a way that does not make them vulnerable.”

He added, “We say so because some female journalists dress inappropriate. They are also urged to work hard by not relying on same politicians/sources for news ideas and other necessities for them when their families, friends and themselves can manage.

When reached, Mr Mwakalombe denied the reports and declined to give further comments saying he is in Lusaka attending Parliament.

Mr Nundwe on the other hand did not answer the calls and did not respond to text messages when asked about the scandal.

The sources have however challenged the two officials that they will release more details of their sexual exploitation of young female Journalists if they do not change their ways

  1. This happens every day and everywhere, no surprise here, this should not even make the news. A man in any position of power will generally want to get into an attractive ladies pants. It is wrong but that is the reality of life. Even when it comes to promotion men want sex in exchange for promotion, Banks, Police, Military, civil service, it is happening everywhere. Some married men stop their wives from working and get them to do business, sadly even winning a tender now involves sleeping with someone. Its a dog eat dog world.

    • Mr Lungu needs to be shrewd and clean his house by removing the bad apples.

      This is making a mockery of a good built up Government.

      The scandals and allegations from people we are meant to trust are taking their toll and will backfire and cause a loss of confidence in his Government.

      These are difficult to ignore.,

      Thanks

      I think this nasty crimes are worse than Chitotoli’s money laundering.

    • Twatotela or Tutotele (or Chitotela) for this episode of Lungu and PF’s slap on the face for the Dununa reverse fraternity and the majority of the Zambians after the support they gave the ‘Humble man’ in 2016. The man told the Permanent Secretaries he appointed recently at a swearing-in ceremony that ‘he will watch them as they go out there to cost him 2021’ which he wants to fraudulently sneak into, and my! they are not disappointing so far. Twatotela or Chitotela is another one that is pulling the carpet off the leader, who was doomed from the start, without a vision. Another ECL thorny front; do we also now see ‘The Public Humiliation of Former Commander Lt General Chimese’, as another double-edged sword for the mediocre leader? I am not a journalist, but don’t I deserve to be…

    • Can the Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance Hon Sumaili set up an office at Parliament Hotel in Lusaka please because MPs have gone on rampage and are destroying our young ladies. Rather than arresting young girls who wear mini skirts better you arrest these cheating husbands for bigamy and causing broken homes.

    • No. It is women who allow men who are successful to grab them by the pus sy.
      Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Bush: Whatever you want. Trump: Grab ’em by the pus sy. You can do anything.

    • This press club is also quite immature. What is to dress inappropriately? And who says once you dont dress “inappropriately” a sex pest won’t harass you? Is dressing inappropriately the only way to invite sex molesters?
      You are journalists, gather evidence and publish it full stop.
      If the young women are in Ndola to sell their bodies they may just be prostitutes not journalists

    • Spaka although I don’t support such abuse of power, I have to point out that this has nothing to do with Mr Lungu. Even where you’re hiding in the UK several ministers and other officials have been involved in such scandals. Every day we read how top personalities in USA have been abusing their female juniors. At home here one Vice President to KK was accused of raping his white secretary. I’m sure even inyour Upnd one or more of your female members could have been abused. Try something else. ..this angle won’t get you anywhere.

    Your first posting on this topic is spot on. The PF government is imploding and hemorrhaging within. Moral profligacy and debauchery expressed in form of all sorts if vile vices led to the downfall of Belshazzar of Babylon. Remember the finger of mene mene tekel uparsin. We’re experiencing history live!

    • If you care to read widely instead of restricting yourself to the Zambian Watchdog you’ll find that this is world wide phenomenon. …it’s happening right now even in the most advanced countries. It’s not good, but your trying to tie it the PF is not fair. In fact you could be one of those predators but just because you have not been found, you want to show that you’re clean.

    • People have now been emboldened because they are no longer fearing HIV because of the advent of ARVs. Sex is natural. According to Clarence Carter: Have you ever sit down to think about, Everything that’s has got life in it likes to make love, Why horses like to make love, Cows like to make love, And mosquitoes like to make love, And human beings like to make love, But now it is one thing about them horses, cows, mosquitoes and things, When they get ready to make love don’t care where they at , They make love right there, But now we human beings, We just a bit different from them (making love is made in planes, boats, back seat of cars etc) But according to him “One of the best places I know is at the dark end of the street”.

  12. The best protection for women is to refuse those types of offers and to work hard to earn their own reputation.

    The fact is they are willing to jump over their fellow females who are going in with just their own efforts. Trying to get a job through sexual favours is just as bad as offering a job for sexual favours.

    Empowering women must include self respect, integrity. It a simple…….NO THANK. SLAP, ‘how dare you,’ SLAP.

  14. Moral decay,why would a young lady be comfortable to sleep with a man as old as her grandfather .We are losing it out.The perpetrators of sex exploitation and the victims are cursed,if this is true literature. REMEMBER THAT what is happening today is a fufilment of biblical prophecy, @2TImothy 3v1-5.My advice is stop chasing after the wind, u will never catch it.The sex gratification and jobs you will have are for a shorter period of time.Investment should be in doing to others as u want to be treated. Life is too short for such squabbles.Be contentious with what you have!

  16. I hope some bloggers are not seemingly justifying this with their views that ‘it’s happening everywhere’. That’s not the point. If it’s going on in your territory, take action – no sacred lambs. How you respond matters – resolute and robust about not condoning such vices. It is people who continuously find excuses, defend the indefensible and refer to how ‘it is happening elsewhere’, who encourage the ‘normalization’ of abuse and corruption.
    This is more than the question of consent – it has more to do with the vulnerabilities that the social-economic situation places people into and those that have power and the resource leverages then take advantage of.

  20. #24 pio, agreed. The behaviour of these trib.als upnd is what makes impossible to fight cirruption and other vices: one does not know whether it is fake or not, an infiltration of systems by trib.als or not, such that it is difficult to decide whether Chitotela should be relieved of his duties or not. These trib.als have simply spoiled the trust in our country in a futile desperation to rule.
    I think they should offer solid evidence rather than insinuations and fake trib.als news.

  21. For example, if the trib.als have evidence of sexual miconduct, bring out the evidence now rather than threatening to bring it out “if the culprits do not stop”. Criminality is criminality. You don-t say to a raping or defiler : “you have raped or defiled two or three times and that is enough, if you rape or defile again, then we will reveal your crime”. What kind of reasoning is that? Only among trib.als do you find it, because tgey have no integrity or consistency, no one knows what they stand for except the futile desire to take their god to state house. They will fake, steal, corrupt, rape, defile, block the presidential motorcade, burn markets, and commit any crime including witchcraft to achieve their futile unattainable objectives.

  23. I’m not i support of the act but this is one area women are always scandalizing men. what may have started as a normal relationship turns into abuse, harassment etc, the moment the objective is not achieved. Any woman who is not a minor has the right to say yes or no. With exemption of rape, the rest are a merely abuse of men. Let the law be fair on this. Men have been on the receiving end for too long. Women have used this tool to their advantage

  24. In as much as i do not support any form of abuse of women by men, i also don’t like the behavior of “some” Zambian women. They go into a relationship with a motive (objective), when the objective is not accomplished, a normal relationship suddenly turns into sexual harassment. For how long are men going to be on the receiving end? Except where rape is involved, the rest are mere fabrications and women have for a long time succeeded in using this strategy. Let the law protect both, currently its tilted towards women
