MEDIA Personality Chanda Kangwa popularly known as DJ Roxy has dragged Sho’dol Beauty Store Limited to court for using her pictures on advertisement without consent.

DJ Roxy is demanding payment of K1 million as damages for infringement of right to privacy and copyright of her images.
In a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, DJ Roxy also seeks punitive damages against Sho’dol for their actions of knowingly circulating, distributing and transmitting her images without consent.

And DJ Roxy also seeks an order that Sho’dol, its servants and agents should stop using her images and render an account of all monetary benefits derived from its infringement of her right by unlawfully using her images.

DJ Roxy wants an audit to be conducted by an Independent auditor to be appointed by the court.

She stated that being a media personality, she posted images of herself on her personal Facebook page, Instagram and other social media platforms which she personally controls and handles.

“From a date unknown to the plaintiff, it came to her attention and knowledge that the defendant had been using the plaintiff’s image on their website for what appeared to be a beauty product advertisement for commercial gain.

The plaintiff avers that the defendant has publicly displayed, transmitted and distributed the image for commercial use in their business without her consent and knowledge,” DJ Roxy said.

She said Sho’dol has therefore, infringed her right not to have copies of her images issued to the public by a third party for commercial purposes.

DJ Roxy said the defendant is in breach of the statutory duty owed to her under the Copyright and Performance Rights Act Chapter 406 of the Laws of Zambia.

She is therefore, demanding payment of K1 million as damages.

The Subordinate Court in Mumbwa has sentenced five men to five years imprisonment with hard labour after they pled guilty to illegal possession of 88kg of bushmeat poached from Blue Lagoon national park in Kafue District.

On 10 January 2022, officers from the Department of National Parks and Wildlife apprehended five suspects namely, Wanton Mweete, 37, Kelvin Ndongo ,37, Phineas Chilala, 42, Jackson Munkuli, 41 and Festus Lwano, 36, who were found with 88kg of fresh Kafue lechwe meat and two shotguns inside the Blue Lagoon national park.

The five suspects, all from Chief Mwanachingwala’s area, were charged with one count of unlawful possession of protected animal (Kafue Lechwe), contrary section 130 (1) of the Zambia Wildlife Act No. 14 of 2015

When the matter came up, they all pled guilty to the charge and were sentenced to five years imprisonment with hard labour.

The Kafue lechwe is endemic to Zambia, meaning it cannot be found anywhere else in the world. As such, Kafue lechwe attract many tourists to visit the national parks they occur in. However, targeted poaching of this species for bushmeat has reduced its population at an alarming rate. At one point Zambia had a population of more than 250,000 Kafue lechwe. Sadly, the population now stands at below 25 000.
