MISA Chair Urges Female Journalists to Resist Sexual Predators

MISA Zambia chairperson Hellen Mwale has urged female journalists to be wary of politicians that may take advantage of their vulnerability.

Speaking during the second Media Insaka, Mwale said most young female journalists were being take advantage of by politicians due to their weak economic status.

She said Journalists need to refuse to be used by people who don’t mean well in seeing females excel through their hard work.

“Some of these politicians will use you and dump you so be careful, ask them some of them do come to me but I don’t tolerate go and ask them, I have my integrity to protect and I expect the same from you colleagues,” she said.

Mwale said it is embarrassing to see people of a noble profession being taken advantage of by people who do not care about their future.

“This is noble profession, regard it as such…. know your worth and you will not allow any of these people to come near you,” she added.

    Yah! easier said than done ’cause for some professions some instances you have to bend backwards to get what you want

    Yaba, am sure she was not happy with the ‘departure fee’ for her to consider it being used. Let the politicians review the after sex care fee and all will be well.

    That is well spoken madam mwale.It is a well known fact that every profession has ethics that need to be followed.It will be unreasonable for female journalists to fall into prey to politicians because their reporting will be rendered meaningless due to bias.Therefore female journalists,be pragmatic in your execution of duty.

    If Zambia(a christian Nation) has, through NAC, admitted that some people are sexualy too weak to abstain, hence promotion of condoms(symbols of casual sex), how can we expect a female journalist be strong?
