The father to Anita Zanji, a Zambian socialite whose photos went viral recently has spoken out. It is the last thing any father would want to see, his own daughter in a nude pose or dance.
But that is the dilemma now facing a Kabwe father, a Mr Simuteengu, whose daughter, popularly known as Anita Zinja, is under police investigation after pictures and videos of her in nude went viral on social media last week.
Mr Simuteengu said he is confused after what has transpired.
“I haven’t decided yet what to do because I am confused. The issue is still fresh and I am confused because when such things happen, it’s something else for a parent, it’s embarrassing,” Mr Simuteengu said.
He told Zambian Watch that he has not talked to Anita since he was informed about the leaked pictures and videos.
Mr Simuteengu said he knows Anita to be a well behaved young woman and he is surprised about her nude pictures and videos trending on social media.
“She hasn’t been here and I am told this issue is on social media. It happened in Lusaka and I haven’t spoken to her properly to know the truth,” he said.
Anita, who on her Facebook page defines herself as a gifted speaker, comedian, actress and business lady, said in a message posted around 16:38 hours on Wednesday: “I am getting strong by the day, and God is on my side.I won’t give up on my life and dreams over something which many have overcome before.” she stated.
In a posting around 14:01 hours the same day, Anita admitted taking some videos and pictures.
She said that some people have hated her from the time she posted her first video on Facebook.
Anita further said she has made enough apologies in the recent past and this time she will let people say what they want to say.
