Stripped UTM woman forced into hiding by death threats — Shanil

A 32-year-old woman who was stripped naked by suspected governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rough-necks on Sunday has gone into hiding after six people putting on ruling party branded clothes stormed her house on Wednesday afternoon demanding she accompanies them.

Katanga ‘s life ‘turned upside down’ after being stripped by political rouch necks

Veronica Katanga is the centre of political violence after the DPP thugs stripped her naked just because she was putting on UTM Party  branded clothes.

Shanil Dzimbiri, the director of women in UTM, said Katanga called her just after noon on Wednesday to complain that she was not feeling safe after the two women and four men in DPP branded regalia came to her house to accompany them to an undisclosed place.

“She called to say that they were forcing her to accompany them because President Peter Mutharika wanted to meet her but I told her don’t go. She has since gone into hiding,” said Dzimbiri, former First Lady and ex-wife to former president Bakili Muluzi.

Police have since pounced on two suspects in the assault which has received countrywide condemnation and the law enforcers say more arrests will follow.

Dzimbiri could not say where Katanga is hiding.

Women in Politics officials on Tuesday massively rallied behind her and condemned the assault on an innocent woman who just put on the UTM branded t-shirt because she wanted to attend a political rally in her area.

Police said they were investigating the matter.

The violence has also cost Katanga’s marriage as she disclosed that her husband said he cannot stand the humiliation.

She said her husband has abandoned her alongside three children he was supporting.

Katanga is one of UTM Party members seen in a video clip being victimised by suspected DPP operatives. The clip, taken in Mangochi, went viral on the Internet on Sunday.

In the clip, she and some men are seen being ordered to take off their branded red UTM Party T-shirts with a portrait Vice-President Saulos Chilima emblazoned on the chest. She is also seen covering herself with a cloth (chitenje) and her bra is exposed.

Katanga said her crew was enroute to Makanjira in Mangochi for a rally when they were ambushed at Khokwe by the suspected DPP youth cadets.

Why is Nyasatimes bringing more trauma to this Lady? You see, much as people get sympathy for her, the whole scenario is vice versa. Anthu aziti, Mzimai anabvulidwa pamseu uja ndi uyo. Azimayi a amzake azimuseka mmalo awo ochezera. Tatiyeni tidzilingalira pochita zinthu osamangoyang’ana mbali imodzi yomveredwa chisoni. Surely her life will be difficult in the society, let alone her marriage which has already broken. This political tactic is not helping her anymore.

Nyasa is fighting for her rights. It should continue until perpetrators are brought to book. Are you worried that more and more people will read about DPP brutality and savagery? Let the works of your hands be known. Nyasa…… more fire please
