JUDITH KABEMBA REPORTED TO NGOCC FOR POSSIBLE INVESTIGATIONS OVER RAPE ALLEGATIONS
By Alfonso Kasongo
Judith Kabemba has been reported to Non Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council NGOCC for the rape allegations against former party leader Harry Kalaba.
Former DP Senior members led by Former party Chairperson for Tourism ,Culture and Traditional Affairs Monde Sishekanu yesterday reported Ms Kabemba to NGOCC so that the gender organisation can investigate the allegations.
And addressing the national today, former DP National Executive Committee member Belita Phiri said rape allegations by Ms Kabemba are serious, embarrassing and regrettable as they have the potential to hinder participation of women in politics.
Ms Phiri who stood contested the Kapoche parliamentary seat in last year’s general election under DP said Kabemba’s rape remarks are insults to the women in politics and other decision making positions hence reiterating the need for NGOCC to investigate and clarify.
Ms . Phiri ,however, advised former DP president Kalaba to remain strong as he is capable of handling more pressure than these allegations.
She added that the former DP women stand with him and offer solidarity in his quest to seek Republican Presidency
