President Edgar Lungu has bemoaned the rising cases of sexual and gender based violence among communities in the country.

President Lungu says more sensitization should be carried out so that women are enlightened of their rights.

The Head of State revealed that he is often saddened to hear that cases involving gender based violence are withdrawn without the law taking its full course.

President Lungu stressed that the Police should refrain from reconciling victims of gender based violence with perpetrators, adding that the law should be allowed to take its full course.

The President said this in Kasama when he graced the launch of Natwampane programme dubbed “together to stop sexual and gender based violence.”

And Minister of Gender Elizabeth Phiri says cases of early marriages have become common among communities.

Mrs Phiri said the launch of Natwampane program will help address the vice in the province.

She disclosed that the European Union has donated 23 vehicles to 23 districts in Northern and Luapula Provinces to be used in the sensitization programmes.

Meanwhile, European Union Ambassador to Zambia Jacek Jankowski says the trend of child marriages and gender based violence is not only common in Zambia but the western world as well.

Mr Jankowski said there is urgent need for stakeholders to ensure that they change the mindset of people towards ending the vice.

Earlier, the EU Ambassador called on Provincial Minister Bwalya Chungu to help strengthen the approach used towards eliminating the high cases of sexual gender based violence.

  1. We must find more cages to put perpetrators. One cage in Livingstone MUSEUM must be subdivided a portion for HH, a portion for KAMANGA and maybe another for Chief MUKUNI. We can put the gender based violent and Sex HAGAINST H-ORDER of NATURE in another cage in Chimbokaila.

    • Sharon, you can’t think of anything more intelligent to say. This reflects poorly on you. What did education do to you?

    • @Sharon

      These are signs of BRAIN DAMAGE from advanced syph?lis acquired from opposition members who might have “DEEPED you in the THROAT” without pay.

      There are many opposition leaders older in politics than HAGAINST H-ORDER, namely Tilyenji, Nawakwi etc but you never attack them. What threat does HAGAINST H-ORDER pose against your illegal hold on power? Illegal cos it was through ELECTORAL THIEVERY.

      Ain’t u tired of yo monotonous blogs.

    • When I was cleaning up toilets at UTH, a Dr. from NAMWALA told me that some diseases are deep e.g. cancer. That is why they do mastectomy to remove them or radical cure. Some diseases run in the blood.

    • I know who your psychiatrist is and I think you do need to visit your psychiatrist before you get detained under the act. From the above thought disordered writing, I can tell that you are terribly insane and you need help. Are you psychotic or what?? Or are that poorly educated that you sound so emotionally unstable?

  2. Ba LT I guess GBV and GBM are synonyms. Otherwise I did not read anything about GBM but he is in the picture of course.
    Disaster!!!

    • These chaps are hypocrites they have an MP in the name of Frank Ng’ambi MP for Chifubu who almost killed his wife with his fists yet they are okay representing them in Parliament and proudly call himself a lawmaker.

  3. GBM is a culprit and it seems the president started by cautioning him before moving on to others.We should have a register for such perpetrators so that we can always refer to them even after their prison sentence.

    • The photo is saying that Dr. Banda and GBM were once Vice Presidents of a TRIBO Union & H-organisation that masquerades as a party. Today MUTINTA is the Acting Vice President because GBM came to know that “UPND is for Tongas and Sakwiba you are not a Tonga you cannot be a President for UPND.” This is not how a person who is not normal writes.

  4. Sharon you are so obsessed with HH to a point that you even forget to wash your stinky mouth. You jump on every article and say rubbish even when it does not involve HH. Sorry my dear you will die of heart attack very soon. Prepare to be in shock because the man you hate so much is soon coming to rule the nation. The earlier you accept it the better for your dull brain. I wonder why you are so emotional about HH. Whenever you sleep hungry or fail to afford toilet paper you want to blame him. Anyway it just shows that the man is so powerful that many fail to close their eyes at night thinking about him. Hope and Help is on the way.

    • @HaJosina! Did you write that to HaJonny and HaSpakata and HaGayJay and HaProf. No Hinsoni and HaNose Demon? Does the hate for the president run in your blood too? HAZALUZA HAGAIN!

  5. This Lungu needs urgent mental examination the man is so detached from reality, just last week his Chifubu MP Frank Ng’ambi walked out of court after his gullible wife refused to testify after the MP beat her to a pulp almost killing her. If you were a truly religious nation and morally upright this MP should have kicked out of the seat and the party irrespective of the court outcome but there is Lungu reading a speech written by Kaizer about how he is concerned. Who are cheating Lungu?

  7. I LOVE SHARON’S WRITING. MAY BE ITS BECAUSE MY TONGA BROTHERS HAVE REALLY DISAPPOINTED ME WHEREVER I HAVE WORKED OR MINGLED WITH THEM! THEY JUST THINK AND SEE TRIBAL EVERY TIME! I FEAR FOR HH IF HE MYSTERIOUSLY MANAGED TO BECOME PRESIDENT! HE WOULD NOT LAST IN STATE HOUSE BECAUSE ALL OFFICIAL ARMS WOULD BE PAINTED UGLY! TRIBALISM! HH AND HIS UPND HAVE ALREADY SHOWN THEIR TRIBAL ANTICS BY FAILING TO WORK WITH CANSIUOS BANDA, GEOFFREY BWALYA MWAMBA, SEAN TEMBO ETC! AND WORLD-OVER TRIBALISM, LIKE GBV IN HOMES, HAS ALWAYS BROUGHT PROBLEMS/DIFFERENCES AND WAR! AND TONGAS FORGET THAT THEY ARE JUST A SMALL “SPOKEN” TRIBE IN ZAMBIA BUT WANT TO COMPARE THEMSELVES WITH BIG “SPOKEN” TRIBES! HALUZA HAGAIN, 2021!

  8. Am I the only who is wondering whether the title and the picture have a link? Why talking about GBV and GBM is in the photo…? Maybe it is just me.
