Women affiliated to political group, UKA, demand justice for Solochi (video)


Women affiliated to the United Kwacha Alliance (UKA) have called for investigations into the sexual abuse allegations made by vlogger Florence Solochi against her uncle.

The UKA women leaders, Chishala Kateka, of New Heritage Party and Saboi Imboela from National Democratic Congress want the security agencies to take interest in the matter and bring it to a thorough conclusion.

Kateka and Imboela made the call after touring the Chainama Hills Hospital on Wednesday to assess the situation of mental health in Zambia and check on Solochi who they, however, later discovered was admitted in Kitwe.

Earlier, Kateka advised the Solochi family to instigate the investigations in order to clear their name.

“We came to Chainama Hills Hospital because we were told that Florence is here. However, we have learnt from the Superintendent that she was not admitted here but in Kitwe,” she said.

Kateka wondered why the security agencies had not moved in to investigate the matter several days after Solochi made the complaint of sexual abuse against her uncle and cousins.

In the same vein, Imboela reportedly said that an investigation conducted at Chainama Hills Hospital revealed that she was admitted to the Hospital on grounds of “childhood trauma”.

“We did discover that she was admitted to this hospital for childhood trauma and sexual abuse. The first time she came to Chainama people dismissed her and said it was drugs and so on,” she said.

Imboela noted that in Zambia, people were never kind when it came to mental health issues despite it being real and serious.

She called for support to people suffering from childhood trauma and cautioned against being hostile to such people.

The Socialite and Vlogger had accused her uncle and cousins on social media of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager.
