Church Commends the Arrest of “Katundu Very Nice” Petauke Man

COUNCIL of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) General Secretary Fr Emmanuel Chikoya has commended the Zambia Police for arresting Rodgers Mwanza who last week sexually harassed an unconscious woman in Petauke.Fr Chikoya says the prompt response from the Police to public demands to have the perpetrator arrested must be commended.He says women are dignified human beings and as such must be highly respected by society.Fr Chikoya has emphasized that Africa has a long history of respecting women hence acts like the one Mwanza did to an unconscious woman was outrageous.He says the Church’s theology informs that all human beings are made in the image of God and as such are to be regarded as sacred as read from the book of Genesis 1: 26-28.He has since condemned in strongest terms the act as well as the song that was recently released by a group called Sky Empire titled “Katundu Not Very Big” produced by BX Exclusive.The song in question mocks the Petauke young woman reported to have been raped by a man who filmed and published a video showing her nudity.Fr Chikoya has also commended the Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) for banning the said song saying the Association’s decision is commendable.Meanwhile, Fr Chikoya has expressed concern over the increasing number of men calling themselves Pastors who have been sexually molesting girls during so-called special prayer sessions.Fr Chikoya says such disheartening acts are mainly perpetrated by one man Church Pastors and has since called upon society not to condone such churches.He says relevant institutions must ensure that Churches are registered institutions with accountability, governance structures and relevant documentation in place.He has also called on the general citizenry not to be hoodwinked by miracle and prosperity focussed Pastors and that parents must ensure their daughters are not allowed to attend exclusive prayer sessions without their presence or responsible third parties.He has urged all Zambians not to be desperate and to report such detestable activities by some Pastors to Police.
