NGOCC bemoans rise in crimes of passionBy Mirriam Chabala on 30 Jul 2017
The Non Governmental Organisations Coordinating Council (NGOCC ) says no amount of provocation justifies killing someone.
In a statement yesteday, NGOCC Executive Director Engwase Mwale said it was disheartening that in the latest incidence, children witnessed their father kill their mother and her suspected lover.
“The Non Governmental Organisations Coordinating Council has bemoaned the increased cases of passion killings, with the latest case of a Nakonde man that killed his wife and her suspected lover in front of their children in Lusaka. NGOCC condemns in the strongest terms the killing of the woman and the suspected lover; especially that it was done in full view of their children. The children will live with the trauma of witnessing their mother being mercilessly murdered by their own father,” Mwale stated.
“Without doubt, these killings are robbing families of their beloved ones and the country in general of the much needed human resource. We would like to take this opportunity to advise couples to always find amicable ways of resolving their differences. No matter the amount of provocation, nothing justifies the taking away of another person’s life.”
And Mwale called on stakeholders to work together in addressing the root causes of spouse killings in order to find a lasting solution.
“As we have continually stated, Gender Based Violence (GBV) is a national crisis that should be addressed by all stakeholders. There is a compelling need for the nation to quickly convene an indaba to address the root causes of these passion killings that are sending productive lives to their early graves,” stated Mwale.
