Lusaka DC (R), YWA Executive Director (L)

Young Women in Action has condemned in strongest terms the abduction of a female mobile money agent Pamela Chisumpa by unknown people.

Speaking during a press briefing in Lusaka on Friday, Young Women in Action executive director Harriet Chabuta said this abduction will deter other women to participate in business as they will fear for their lives.

She said as an organization they have engaged with different partners and the media to look into the issue.

Ms. Chabuta has further recommended that government ensures and considers the utilization of camera systems in the streets of Lusaka to enhance security.

“Government should consider through the council to utilizing the inactive security camera systems that were installed prior to the 2021 general elections for the so purpose of providing security in the country,” she said.

And YWA board chair person Agatha Mutale Nkoma said there is need for action and voices to be raised, as abduction is a crime and Zambia is known for peace.

“May we all raise our voices and take action because abduction is criminal and unjustifiable, we need to stand together in solidarity to condemn strongly,” she said.

Meanwhile, Lusaka district commissioner DC Rosa Kayuni Zulu condemned the abduction terming it as an alien in the land of Zambia.

“Let us continue using our resources to help the young lady return home and whoever is doing such by the time they will be caught they will remain to testify what they will go through because the government will not spare them,” she said.

The DC has also emphasized that the police is doing their best to ensure that Pamela is found and has warned that whoever is involved in the abduction will not be spared by government.
