Never again should any Zambian be subjected to such a traumatic experience, as NCOCC calls on police to thoroughly investigate the abduction of Pamela Chisumpa and the other young ladies

THE Non-Governmental Gender Organization’s Coordinating Council (NGOCC) has appealed to the security wings to ensure that they investigate the abduction of Pamela and the 12 other young women and bring to book all those involved.

NGOCC executive director Anne Anamela said the episode has exposed the security situation in the country, adding that Police and other security agencies have the responsibility to secure all Zambians.

“NGOCC is pleased to learn that Pamela Chisumpa and12 others that had been abducted have finally been rescued from the captors who have been holding them hostage. As a women’s movement we would like to commend and thank the alert neighbours who acted swiftly to help the young women escape from the captors,” Ms Anamela said.

She however said the women movement is concerned with the physiological and emotional stress that the young women are going through.

Ms Anamela said the victims must undergo medical examinations which should be a combination of medical, psychosocial support and nutritional care.

“We can only imagine the trauma that these young women suffered at the hands of their abductors as evidenced by reports of mistreatment and starvation they were subjected to. It is clear from the circumstances that the young women suffered various forms of abuse by those criminals that held them hostage. We therefore also demand that the young women undergo thorough medical examinations,” she said.

Ms Anamela said the young women will also require support towards legal representation to ensure that justice is meted on their abductors.

She said NGOCC will actively coordinate a holistic response towards care for the young women to assist their physical, psychological and social recovery from the traumatic experience.

“We call upon the nation to support the healing of the young women. At this point what these young women require is love and emotional support,” she said.
