Zambian Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Lawrence Sichalwe has come under fire for possessing pornographic material which he shared in a whatsaap group.
According to media reports , Mr. Sichalwe claims to have mistakenly posted the video.
But Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo is of the view that whether Mr. Sichalwe posted the video by mistake or not , he committed an offence of being in possession of pornographic material.
She says there is no way a video can be shared if he wasn’t in possession of it.
She says since the law is not segregative , Mr. Sichalwe may be prosecuted even if he is a minister.
And when reached for a comment on phone , Mr. Sichalwe told diamond news that he had no comment since everything is already on social media, and hung up the phone on the TV Reporter.
