MARY CHIRWA

5th August 2022

The embattled boss of the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) Ms Mary Chirwa aka Mary Banana, recently embroiled in a series of viral hard-core pornographic videos shall not be punished or censured by President Hakainde Hichilema says Thabo Kawana, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Information in a radio interview.


Kawana sparked a bitter debate Friday when asked pointedly by Radio Phoenix interviewer Chimweka Chileshe what government would do regarding the alleged indiscretion Ms Chirwa in the pornographic videos that has kept Zambian tongues wagging for more than a week now given her position as a law enforcer.


“You want my position on that (porn) the government position is that she (Chirwa) is not going anywhere,” Kawana arrogantly told Chileshe, “lots of people especially in PF (Patriotic Front) want her fired. The position is that we have heard you but she (Mary) is not going to be fired.”


Ever since a series of pornographic videos featuring a naked woman with a striking resemblance of Ms Chirwa surfaced on social media, calls for her to resign have reached a crescendo with government staying silent until today´s bombshell interview and subsequent revelation that has shocked many.


Kawana who arrogantly dodged and ducked questions from a tenacious Chileshe suggested that the person that must be punished instead of Chirwa is the person that filmed and distributed the dirty video.
He expressed ignorance of the existence of the video.


But the interviewer kept his cool, even under open intimidation and arrogance from Kawana saying the DEC Chirwa heads is responsible for among other things ´policing´ pornography so therefore how can she be entrusted with the duty to police pornography when she is a star in a series of porn videos.


In the past, social media personality Iris Kaingu went to court and later jail for being in the exact same position as Chirwa now aka Mary Banana.


President Edgar Lungu during his tenure took less than 12 hours to sack then Education Minister David Mabumba, accidentally caught in a position similar to Mary Banana.


The police on the other hand have not moved an inch to arrest or prove the identity of the woman in the video believed to be Ms Chirwa.
Observers state that in her current form, Chirwa has no moral right to remain the office of the head of DEC given the obscene material linked to her. This is a developing story.


Ostensibly, the civil society that was overly vocal under President Edgar Lungu have remained silent, including the diplomatic community.

  1. Whether HH takes action or not she should have just resigned on moral grounds. Imagine you are being interviewed by her and you just keep on picturing her in the video. It will show DEC is not a serious organization.

  2. She is going nowhere!
    We are still investigating, even the former husband and whoever, leaked it should be punished heavily! Wait till investigation is concluded

  3. You do not have to look for whoever shot that video and distributed it. You simply have to start from the premise of the person in question undressing before a camera and doing those things with full knowledge she was being filmed and that that video could end up in wrong hands. The moment you undress and allow yourself to be filmed, then know that there is no longer anything private about it and anyone can use this against you. Marr Chirwa is no child. She is a grown up woman who should have known that what she was doing could end up in the wrong hands. Therefore, there is no way you could have a person who is so reckless with her private life to be in charge of the country’s top law enforcement agency. Her lack of sound judgment may end up being transferred to the manner she discharges her duties at DEC. She is not morally fit to be in charge of such an institution and anyone who defends her is equally not morally fit to preside over the nation’s affairs.

  4. Her conscience if at still intact will give her the correct judgement which is simply stepping down. Morals are far more important than whatever is keeping her head high. From the very day the clip leaked she will never be the same. Believe or not. Her actions will haunt her and eventually become paranoid.
    The president may think he’s shaming the opposition anf yet he’s simply drawing question marks on his name over his credibility of upholding the rule of law. The international space he always invited are watching him.

  5. It’s very easy to jump to conclusions when investigations are not concluded yet. Can ba Concluda chill a bit and not be haste to ask Mary Chirwa to resign.
    Trouble is we have to look at the dangerous job she is doing and the diabolical PF chaps she is investigating. She is not doing that dangerous job for herself but for you and me.
    Trouble in Zambia is we get “Ichushi” and we leave “Umulilo.”
    Wait for the official investigation report!
    Ba police, help to publish your preliminary findings on this matter!
    Mary Chirwa knows her partner (s) and those are the prime suspects in this matter!
    Anybody’s bedroom can be bugged with hidden Cameras to record anyone! Whether you do your Sex in the dark or light, it doesn’t matter! You will be secretly recorded especially if you prove to be a thorn in some people’s flesh. When you are honest, you will have many enemies!
    The prolonged silence by both Mary Chirwa and Police on this matter is not healthy for DEC as an institution!
    At least a preliminary report will help!

  6. Undressing, possing and fondling with oneself infront of a camera is obscenity and pornographic. What other intentions? That was not a hidden camera. People especially young ones get traumatised and the damage could be irreparable. if she is the one bo Kawana are you suggesting it’s now animal farm and some animals are more equal than others? Could this be an indirect way to encourage women to do such? Lets be level minded bigman.

  7. By keeping her in that post does not make sense as the name is dented. so are we saying
    We cannot replace her with equally capable
    Person in that post?

  8. How can she be punished when it is not even her video, you can’t identify someone by his/her private parts, that video was produced by her enemies and it can’t even be used as evidence in Court. Mary Chirwa is a descent woman and cannot do such an abominable thing.

  9. If I was Thabo I would have avoided to comment on the issue or simply stated that I’m not the appointing authority. Because any mishandling this issue will make the thieves and corrupt people chaptalize on it. We need to be careful, and you may not know much more may come out. Sometimes woman may go out of way doing things which are not right just show a man love and also looking the questionable character of the ex husband and what she went through before marrying that ex husband. I really feel pity for her. It is so common that most dirty leaked videos are women in action whether married or single.

  10. This issue is interesting. Was Mary at her home or elsewhere? Yes she is DEC boss but may will understand that she has enemies all over. I suspect if she was in a hotel, then that hotel need to be investigated. Many hotel have cameras and have access to all rooms for customers.
    ZICTA also must help to arrest the video throwers

  11. IN THIS MATER, IT IS WRONG TO COMPARE MARY CHIRWA’S SITUATION TO THAT OF MABUMBA, VERY FAR DIFFERENT. MARY CHIRWA IS JUST BEING ACCUSED BECAUSE THE PHOTO IS NOT HER’S, IT IS NOT WELL KNOWN AS TO WHO IS THE OWNER AND THE ORIGINATOR IS NOT KNOWN. AS FOR MABUMBA, THE PHOTO WAS EXACTLY HIS, IT SHOWED THE PRIVATE PART AND HIS WHOLE BODY AND THE ORIGINATOR WAS KNOWN AND TESTIFIED ABOUT IT, MOREOVER, PF WERE KNOWN OF PORNOGRAPHIC AND SEXUAL PRACTICES. SO, MARY CHIRWA DO YOUR WORK MORE THAN BEFORE AND CATCH PF THIEVES.
