National Democratic Congress (NDC) leader, Saboi Imboela, has noted with concern that sexual harassment was on the increase in higher institutions of learning in the country.
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Friday announced through a statement the arrest of Copperbelt University (CBU) lecture for corrupt practices involving sexual gratification.
A post on Imboela’s official Facebook handle reads: “students can’t be keeping quiet and treating it as if it’s normal, because it’s a huge crime,”.
Imboela who is also a Child rights activist pledged to fully support all the victims and called on all other victims to report and even record the perverts that ask for sexual favours from them in exchange for good grades.
“The sad part is that when the students refuse, they even begin to fail them deliberately, so they feel like sleeping around with students is their right,” she said.
Imboela said she had not declared the CBU lecturer guilty because the matter was still under investigation but was talking generally about sexual harassment in schools and how happy she was that students are reporting such cases.
“Enough is enough, students have to be respected and allowed to learn freely and not be sexually harassed by the very people that should be training them into what they want to become,” she said.
