Award-winning singer, Wezi, is amidst her efforts to support the movement which calls for 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence in the African continent. As she has spent most of the time condemning the government’s efforts to protect women and children of the country, she appeared to finally be giving credit where credit is due.  

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, 1 December 2020, the singer celebrated Zambia’s Police Victim Support Unit by shedding light on the positive work they have been doing. She stated, “Today I’d like to celebrate Zambia police’s victim support unit and all the work they’ve been doing. I had the privilege to visit and meet some of them. I’d like to encourage men and women to feel free to report cases and seek help from these wonderful people.” 

Wezi explained that the officers she had met are trained councillors who have been placed there to protect victims with the laws that have been drawn out for the people of Zambia. She claimed to have taken time to speak with them and tour their offices, and listened to stories about the work they have done and the good they have brought about. 

She shared a long thank you list which stated, “I’d like to thank VSU National coordinator, Senior superintendent Gloria Meamui Mubita for hosting me. “I’d also like to thank everyone who works at the VSU Zambia police QH offices for being so welcoming of me today. Sexual offenses desk officer/ focal point person chief inspector Banda, Child protection desk officer/focal point person inspector Mutale Theresa. Trafficking in persons (TIP) Focal point person Mr. Siabona Vincent, Domestic violence desk officer Brenda Chembe, Statistician sergeant Lillian Sabulimbe, Office assistant Precious Mukanzo, Loveness Namulele Assistant counsellor & Mututwa Mwanambuyu Assistant counsellor as well.”

Wezi has been vocal on social media ever since the rise of GBV in Africa had increased significantly. She has used her platform to share her thoughts about it and put the Zambian government on blast for their inability to help the people. In a post in October 2020, she stated, “There’s a cry for justice everywhere on the continent because it’s not just Zambia that’s bleeding! We know better is possible & that’s what we all must work towards, building a better Zambia and a better Africa! Let’s unite against injustice and inequality!”.
