THE video of a woman who was sexually abused by a Petauke man should be condemned because it has painted a bad picture of the district and my chiefdom, says senior chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga people.
Chief Kalindawalo called on law enforcement agencies to ensure that justice prevailed and that stiff punishment is meted against perpetrators of such crimes.
In an interview with Daily Nation, Chief Kalindawalo who described the act as criminal and unZam-bian, said such acts should not be tolerated and called on churches and other stakeholders to work to-gether in fighting cybercrime.
Chief Kalindawalo said despite Zambia being a Christian nation, some youths had failed to uphold good morals, principles and values.
He said he would not allow such type of behaviour in his chiefdom adding that he would ensure culprits were brought to book and punished accordingly because women were important in society.
The traditional leader appealed to the youths refrain from abusing social media platforms.
He called on Government to quickly come up with stiff laws to stop social media abuse which he ob-served had seen some people posting nude pictures, pornographic videos and other unwanted materials.
“That video has portrayed a very bad picture not only of Petauke but of my chiefdom too and as a traditional leader I am very disappointed. I have condemned that act because that is our son and it was taken from within Petauke, therefore I am appealing to the youths to refrain from such behaviour,” said Chief Kalindawalo.
Meanwhile, chief Kalindawalo praised government for the developmental projects taking place in the district.
He cited the construction of Kalindawalo General Hospital, construction of Minga Boma and Kalind-awalo road which he said once completed would ease people’s movements.
“I am very happy with the construction of a hospital in my chiefdom because we have been travelling long distances to Katete’s St. Francis Hospital and the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka.  But soon we will have our own and it will not only serve the people of Petauke but the entire province,” he obsereved.
