Speaking to Journalists at Kabwe’s Mukobeko Maximum Security Prison fter receiving a presidential pardon on Thursday, Dimba who was serving an 18 year sentence with hard labour for defiling a 14 year old girl said he is honored to be made the President’s ambassador in the fight against defilement.
He said he has experienced prison the hard way, advising people to avoid prison because it is a bad place.
And the Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) has welcomed the pardoning of Dimba by President Lungu.
ZAM President Njoya Tembo says musicians are excited to see their own walk to freedom.
Tembo was however quick to advise Dimba not to forget the task the Head of State has given him saying he should be active in the fight against defilement.
Tembo says Dimba should not neglect the task given to him but should strive to fight all negative vices through music and actual works.
And the Zambia National Women’s Lobby (ZNWL) says it has no objection to the decision by President Edgar Lungu to pardon Dimba.
ZNWL Chairperson Beauty Katebe says her organization believes the President’s decision is based on the recommendation by the Prisons authorities who have seen that he has transformed into a better citizen.
Katebe states that in this regard ZNWL respects the decision by President Lungu, but hopes that Dimba will no longer make disturbing news headlines by committing a similar.
She her organisation will continue to strongly condemn child defilers because they ruin the future of the girl child. Katebe has since commended President Lungu for tasking Dimba to be an ambassador against child defilement.
