Dear Editor, IT has come to our attention that there is an audio full of vulgar language being circulated on social media that has maliciously been ascribed to Minister of Community Development and Social Welfare Kampamba Mulenga Chewe. We wish to state that voice in the said audio is not that of Ms Chewe and neither has she issued any such remarks against anyone.
Considering that the said audio coincides with the coming into law of the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act of 2021, we urge Ms Chewe to report the matter to the Zambia Police Service for culprits to be brought to book. Lastly, we are convinced that the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act of 2021 is meant to protect, among others, victims of cyber bullying and that the law enforcement agencies are equal to the task. We further wish to call for civil and mature politics as the nation goes for general elections on August 12, 2021. SUNDAY CHANDA, Media Director- Patriotic Front
