Calling Hon Dora Silya corrupt is understandable but calling her prostitute is unacceptable
Mwila bwalya a youth activist blames Chellah Tukuta.
here is what he posted on his facebook account .Let me first begin by defining what libel is. ”Any person who, by print, writing, painting, effigy, or by any means otherwise than solely by gestures, spoken words, or other sounds, unlawfully publishes any defamatory matter concerning another person, with intent to defame that other person, is guilty of the misdemeanour termed “libel”.
Initially, Chellah Tukuta started his campaign ( against Corruption) very well. Unfortunately along the way, he lost track and started making defamatory, slanderous and malicious statements against some people without substantiating his arguments.
He called Hon Siliya and other women prostitutes, which to me is very unacceptable. Lets get one thing clear, we might not like her or her leadership style but we should always resist from the temptation of calling her or her colleague names. The best we can do is deal with them in the voting booth in 2021 (by voting them out).
I know some of you will say, ”But Bwalya , she also called Micheal sata (Mhsrip) names and even raised a middle finger at him in public.” Well, that is not a justification to insult her. Just because a racist white person calls you a monkey does not mean you should also call him/her a pig because he/she is white.
Now dont misunderstand me, am not in any way suggesting that the arrest of chellah tukuta is on merit. What am saying is that it is unacceptable for Chellah or any other person to call her that P- word. Always remember that before she is an MP or Minister, she is a mother, an aunt, a sister and a daughter to someone.
The truth of the matter is that no court on earth will find Chellah Tukuta innocent of those allegations. Everything he said is in public domain for everyone to see and judge. Maybe his arrest was politically motivated or maybe not, i cant speculate. I supported his fight against corruption but i definitely wont support him calling the Minister that dirty P-word.
In conclusion, i ask that you analyze this article in a neutral way. Dont analyze it on political grounds. Ignore the fact that Hon Siliya is a PF member because only then will you make a sound judgement. The real fight for justice can be seen from people like pilato, laura Miti, maiko zulu , sean Tembo, etc. What Chellah started was a personal fight against some individuals.
This is just my opinion, i expect you to respect it just like i would respect yours.
