Victims of a cyber crime wave of war waged on social network Facebook under the names of Mmeto wa a Tambwali have hit back by demanding jail terms for all women who participated in insulting, cyber bullying and stalking them.
Last few weeks several women took turns castigating elite group of Malawian company executives, prominent lawyers, top flight media personalities, politicians and musicians by posting on a closed Facebook group fictitious stories of alleged womanising.
One of the offended lawyers currently in the United Kingdom for a brief business tour and told Nyasa Times that his fellow victims in Malawi have written the UK’s Home Office and gave particulars of several individuals who participated in the cyber crime.
He said the elite society men have asked him to use his visit in the UK and physically report the crime in any UK Police and Home Office.
The victims have written the British Embassy demanding that five female residents in the UK must stand trial accused of committing cyber crime according to British Laws.
“Under the British Public Order Act of 1986 section 4A says that a person is guilty of an offence if, with intent to cause a person harassment, alarm or distress, he: (a) Uses threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour, or (b) Displays any writing, sign or other visible representation which is threatening, abusive or insulting, thereby causing that or another person harassment, alarm or distress,” said the lawyer.
He said while meeting other executive lawyers in the UK on other business issues a lawyer from Pannone, UK’s leading Cyber Solicitors advised the offended Malawian men to fully send all details of the discussions in hard copy format showing all the discussions.
It is the Pannone Solicitors who prosecuted Liam Stacey, a 21 year old British student, who was recently jailed for 56 days under s.4A of the Public Order Act 1986 after posting offensive messages about Fabrice Muamba on Twitter.
“I learnt that the creator of the group Jennifer Cooke Madonsela and Sella Blessings Chikaphonya had removed the created page after an earlier threat of legal redress. But we are fortunate that six other women had printed all the pages meant to show their husbands being attacked on the facebook page, so we have the evidence,” he said.
The documents are ready and have been submitted to the UK Home Office asking the office to question five Malawian women including Jane Takondwa Kathewera living in Bolton, United Kingdom alleged to have participated in the crime.
Kathewera is also, alleged to be on the run for money laundering, she is in hiding after collecting money from various women posing as if she would change British Pounds into Malawi kwacha.
One woman from Scotland said Kathewera, who has since closed her Facebook account, advertised on the social networking sites to the effect that she was providing a foreign exchange service of collecting pounds in exchange for Malawi kwacha but she has since not honoured the deal after collecting a lot of the said British currency.
“I thought of it as a quick way of sending money to Malawi as she said she had money in Malawi and that if I gave her £700 she would transfer the money the following day but now its three weeks she has not done it and she is not picking up her phones,” said a visibly disappointed woman.
Another family (name withheld) told Nyasa Times that they gave her £1,000 a week ago and she promised that she would transfer the money into their Malawi account the next day.
“But it’s now a week, we are stranded as we are desperately in need of the money in Malawi to help at a funeral,” lamented the man of the house.
Meanwhile, Police are also said to have been sent to the South African Home Affairs where three other Malawian women are also believed to have participated in the alleged crime.
In Ireland, a relative of one of the abused men living in Cork says he has already reported several names of the alleged culprits to the Irish Immigration for illegally living in that country.
“I have sent an envelope today with all the documents, pictures and addresses of those who wrote nonsense about my brother to the Irish Immigration office in Dublin,” she said.
Meanwhile, Malawi Police have received a total of 14 complaints on the same issue from different men victimised on the same group. They have opened case files for all women who participated in the discussion a conduct likely to cause breach of peace.
Police sources say seven of the victims reported at the Police Headquarters in Lilongwe, two at Blantyre Police and the rest in several police stations.
“Yes, we have received and recorded statements of complaint from several gentlemen, we are zeroing to finding all those who were involved,” said one Senior Police Officers at the National Police headquarters in Lilongwe.
Further investigations carried out by Nyasa Times have revealed that two of the three women involved in the Facebook crime are involved in a network of human trafficking, wooing desperate girls from the Southern African country, Malawi with promises of employment in Europe, where they are sold to brothels and pimps.
Nyasa Times has in its possession two pornography flicks some of the women have acted in and it’s also has been revealed that they frequent known sex truism havens in Ibiza and Thailand.
