Newly elected Deputy Mayor for Mufulira, Zambia, Beatrice Bwalya Kapansa has landed in big trouble after she reportedly shared a n@ked photo of herself on her party’s WhatsApp group.
Many women are now calling for the resignation of the 50-year-old.
A report by PostZambia.com reads:
SONTA Epowabomba” is a PF WhatsApp chat group where members discuss party mobilisation strategies and share information concerning political developments. But the members of the ruling party social media group got a rare ‘blessing’ on Sunday, October 9, 2016 when their district chair lady ostentatiously flaunted her bosom in the forum. The municipal leader, who is in her late 50s, added a caption to her obviously self-explanatory picture: “JUST RELAXING IN BED.” Although there hasn’t been any complaints from the male members of the WhatsApp group, the female counterparts are up in arms demanding for her resignation as district chairlady and that she should further be removed from the position of deputy mayor. “We are so shocked and disappointed that our deputy Mayor, who is also PF district chairlady, can be taking that kind of photographs for herself; and worse still, sending her half naked picture to a group forum,” a female member of the group, who sought anonymity, said.
“This is an obscene photo and that is why it has caused a lot of tension in the PF camp. So as women, we are planning to stage a demonstration demanding to have this immoral councillor resign on moral grounds.”The group members said they questioned Kapansa over her obvious mistake, and that she gave an unsatisfactory explanation. “When the posting was seen in the group, obviously people were shocked. It was clear that she intended to send the photo to someone else. But when she was asked about it, she blamed it on her grandchild. She defended herself by saying it was a grandchild who was playing with her phone and got the picture,” the group members narrated. “People asked her if it was also the grandchild who even wrote the message the picture was carrying, but at that stage she left the group without any word.”
The members further alleged that Kapansa intended to send her ‘romance’ to a named PF district official with whom she had a known relationship.
