According to a complaint filed at the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court by her lawyers, Nsapato & Co. Advocates, Musyani is facing four counts of harassment utilizing electronic means contrary to Section 69 of the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act, 2021.

He is also charged with hate speech contrary to Section 65 of the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes, 2021.

It is alleged that Musyani between March 1 and April 16, 2024, by using electronic communications, that is through his Facebook page in his name, intentionally intimidated, harassed or caused emotional distress to Kidist.

Kidist in an affidavit in support of the complaint lamented that the accused in one of his Facebook postings alleged that she was promiscuous and unfit to be a wife.

“That I am aware that the accused has on several dates between March 1 and April 15, 2024 posted several social media posts on his Facebook using his personal account under his name, Elias Musyani, to the effect I am a prostitute, an evil step-mum. He has gone as far as threatening rape on me and abduction of my infant daughter,” she alleged.

She added that the accused in one of his posts threatened her husband, Yo Maps and insulted her mother.

Kidist argued that the actions by Musyani constituted cyber bullying and hate speech.
