I HAVE noted with alarm a video circulating showing a person purporting to be a PF cadre alleging that I have given him money to discredit others.
It is clear that this video has been staged for nefarious and depraved political reasons.
The perpetrators designed it to elicit public outrage and contempt targeted against myself and the ruling Patriotic Front.
For this reason, I have lodged in an official complaint to the Zambia Police to help establish the criminals behind this video and bring them to book.
Zambians must reject this kind of behaviour, politics which tarnish the image of our country.
This is the reason that Government wishes to pass the Cyber Crime Bill so that cyber space is not used and abused, injure other people’s reputation and that it must remain a safe place for all, especially children, girls and women.
I am urging the Police to take interest and expeditiously address my complaint against perpetrators of such crimes.
