How To End the Epidemic of Girl Child Defilement In Zambia




Recently,, Zambia has been grappling with a disturbing trend – the alarming rise in cases of girl child defilement, particularly by relatives. This egregious violation of young girls’ rights not only inflicts profound physical and emotional harm but also undermines the very fabric of our society. It is imperative that we take decisive action to put an end to this epidemic and ensure that every girl child can grow up in a safe and nurturing environment.

The prevalence of girl child defilement by relatives highlights the urgent need for comprehensive and coordinated efforts to address this issue. To effectively combat this scourge, we must adopt a multi-faceted approach that addresses the root causes of defilement, strengthens legal protections, and empowers communities to protect and support vulnerable children.

Firstly, we must prioritize prevention through education and awareness-raising initiatives. This includes providing comprehensive sexuality education in schools and communities, teaching children about their rights and boundaries, and promoting gender equality and respect for all individuals. By equipping children with knowledge and skills to recognize and report abuse, we can empower them to protect themselves and seek help when needed.

In addition, we must strengthen legal frameworks and enforcement mechanisms to hold perpetrators of girl child defilement accountable for their actions. This includes ensuring swift and effective investigation and prosecution of cases, as well as imposing stringent penalties for offenders. It is essential that survivors of defilement receive adequate support and access to justice, including legal assistance, counseling, and medical care.

Also, we must work to challenge and change harmful social norms and attitudes that perpetuate gender-based violence and victim-blaming. This requires engaging with communities, religious leaders, and traditional authorities to promote positive masculinity, challenge harmful stereotypes, and foster a culture of respect and equality for all individuals, regardless of gender.

Lastly, we must strengthen support systems and services for survivors of girl child defilement, including access to safe housing, medical care, counseling, and legal assistance. It is crucial that survivors are provided with the necessary resources and support to heal from their trauma and rebuild their lives.

Ending girl child defilement by relatives requires a concerted effort from all sectors of society – government, civil society, communities, and individuals. By working together to prevent abuse, hold perpetrators accountable, and support survivors, we can create a Zambia where every girl child can grow up free from fear and exploitation. Let us stand united in our commitment to protecting the rights and dignity of all children, and put an end to the scourge of girl child defilement once and for all.


16-year-old boy in court accused of murdering a security guard




A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has appeared in the Lusaka High Court charged with murder after the car he was driving allegedly hit a security guard at the mall who later died.

When the juvenile offender, through his lawyer, applied for bail pending trial, the State urged the court to only grant bail to the teenager after it is ascertained that he will be safe if realised.

A prosecutor told Judge Mwamba Chanda that considering the seriousness of the offence, the teenager is in danger of being attacked by the deceased’s relatives.

The juvenile, who will be called CJ, is charged with murder after the Toyota Alphard he was allegedly driving last December hit a security guard at Manda Hill Mall who later died.

The victim is Enoch Chanda, 35, a G4S security guard at Manda Hill mall.

When the case came up yesterday,CJ pleaded not guilty and his lawyer Robert Siulapwa applied for bail pending trial.

The application was pursuant to section 73(2) of the Children’s Code Act.

“The court has jurisdiction to inquire into the case and strike a balance between the community as well as the child with regard to safety before the bail is granted,” Mr Siulapwa said.

But the State contended that the defence had not demonstrated that there is no danger on the child being released.

“We are of the view that the offence the child is charged with is serious, which itself puts the child in danger as he may be attacked by the deceased relatives who may not understand the law. We pray that not until the inquiry is concluded as to the safety of the child, he stays in custody,” a prosecutor submitted.

Judge Chanda ruled that all offences pertaining children are bailable, serve for the fact that the court needs to ascertain the safety or danger of the child or to the community or vice versa, especially if circumstances are aggravating.

She ordered that a juvenile inspector should conduct an assessment in the community by interviewing families of the deceased, the child in conflict with the law and community members.

Bail will only be granted if there are no threats to the community or if the child is not a threat

The Anambra State Police Command has dismissed the claims that 21 soldiers were killed by gunmen in the state.

There have been reports across social media since Tuesday saying that 21 soldiers who were on their way to Enugu State were rounded up and killed in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Monday evening.

But while reacting to the report in a statement on Wednesday, the spokesman for the Anambra State Police Command, SP Tochukwu Ikenga, dismissed the claims, describing it as “misleading”, “unfounded” and “false”.

The statement read, “The Anambra State Police Command is aware of a misleading, unfounded, and false report titled, ‘Gunmen kill 21 soldiers in Anambra’, recently peddled by some online media and national dailies.

“The Command wishes to state that the report is untrue, a product of fiction, and the handiwork of mischief-makers.

kenga added that the Command should not hesitate to invoke relevant cyber laws on persons found wanting in this regard.

“However, the Command urges the public to disregard the report,” he added.

The full buck moon brings a great shift



July’s full buck moon is set to arrive after sunset on Sunday the 21st and it will be the biggest and brightest supermoon of the year. Whether you’re looking for it or not, this moon will bring a significant amount of change into your life, but how you choose to accept it and harness its powerful energy is up to you. The buck moon got its name from the male deers’ antlers which are in full-growth during this time, just like the moon which is at its peak. As for your emotions, it is crucial that you listen to your heart. If your body is calling for you to rest, slow down and spend time at home, if you want to start something new, now is the time to put things in place, or if you want to work on your relationships, be upfront, honest, and work on your connections.

What does full buck moon mean for your zodiac sign?

You may be feeling overwhelmed and need time alone. Now is the best time to focus on yourself and your healing. It may be helpful to tune out any external voices and noises, and concentrate on what is most important to you in order to find ways to help you get there. Harness the moon’s powerful energy to process things with a clear mind and conscience and you may find that it gives you the closure you need.


Use this time to evaluate your relationships and consider whether they are serving you in a positive way. If anyone in your life is not bringing you joy or happiness, it might be time to take a step back and channel your energy into healthy relationships instead. Be open and honest with your feelings and ensure that all parties are on the same page and accept that if things aren’t working out, it might be the better option to walk away rather than forcing them.

The full buck moon in Aries will present an opportunity to enhance your career and life’s purpose. The moon will help you assess whether you are in the right position and if a change in direction should be on the cards. If you’re feeling like your workload is getting out of control, or your responsibilities have been increased, this may be the sign that it’s time for a new career path. While it might be a daunting prospect, it will work out in your favor.

For the taurus, the full buck moon is the perfect time to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. There are countless opportunities waiting for you which could alter the direction of your life. Whether it’s traveling, taking up a new hobby, starting a new project, gaining a new skill, or creating new connections, this is the time to try it out.

You might feel most comfortable keeping everything as surface level as possible, but July is the ideal time to start delving deeper. It could be a relationship, an emotion, or something else, but if there was ever a time to put your heart into something, the full buck moon will present you with the right opportunity.

For cancers, this month’s focus should be on your relationships. Take the time to identify who is most important to you in your life and work on strategies to enhance your bond. Whether it is a romantic partner, a family member, or a friend, the full buck moon will give you the tools to establish trust and build on your existing connection.

Leos must use the full buck moon’s energy to help others, as well as yourself. Self-care is equally, if not more important, than caring for those around you. Keep an eye on your health, make sure you are practicing a positive way of living to enlighten your spirit and be a bright light for those around you as well.

The full buck moon can heighten your emotions and feelings in a number of ways and for the Virgo, it may bring us past hurt. Although things may feel overwhelming and consuming, you can work with this energy to come out stronger than ever. Make sure to do something that brings you a great amount of joy and allows you to forget about the pain.

You may feel yourself wanting to break away from everyone and everything and spend some time alone. Don’t worry about feeling like this, it’s your body telling you it needs to reset and hide away for a little bit. It’s ok to be introverted during July, it may be the ideal time for you to replenish your energy and recharge your spirit before emerging as a stronger person.

In a direct contrast from the Libra, Scorpios may feel more extraverted this month as the buck moon transitions into full illumination. There will be a strong desire to be surrounded by people, be more involved in social situations, and develop new relationships. If a new connection is made, you may be more likely to thrive in it regardless if it’s romantic or platonic.

Slowing down and embracing the moment is ideal for the Sagittarius during July. Allow the full buck moon’s powerful energy to permeate into all aspects into your life and feel more connected to the universe. You may feel the need to practice introspection and take the right actions to enhance your life in the future.

Capricorn’s should expect to feel heightened emotions all month long. You may start to consider your identity and purpose and try to understand how everything will fit into your life. Don’t try to rush this process, everything will start to fall into place. This moment could be incredibly poignant and allow you to become your authentic self.
