Steamy videos containing obscene materials showing a woman believed to be Director General of the Drug Enforcement Commission Mary Chirwa have emerged.
Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema has appointed Mary Chirwa as Drug Enforcement Commission Director General in January 2022, taking over from Dr Musonda Simwayi.
The videos show a woman in a room fondling with her genitals who bears remarkable resemblance to Mrs Chirwa. It is unclear when the videos were recorded and released.
The videos are now circulating in a number of WhatsApp blogs with many bloggers expressing disgust at her conduct. Others have already called for her immediate resignation and called on President Hakainde Hichilema to sack her.
When contacted, Ms. Chirwa’s phone was off and she did not respond to messages seeking a comment. DEC Spokesperson Mathias Kamanga’s phone was equally phone at the time of publishing.
State House Photographer Chellah Tukuta has emerged as the central figure in the Mary Chirwa sex tape scandal. Sources within Ms. Chirwa’s family have disclosed that the photos were leaked by Tukuta.
The source said Ms. Chirwa and Tukuta have had a sexual relationship for some time now and accused the State House photographer of exposing the nude photos after a disagreement after discovering that the DEC Director General was seeing another man.
The sources said Tukuta was a regular at Ms. Chirwa’s house with many sleep overs.
“Chellah was always there (Ms. Chirwa’s house and he would boss the Maid around demanding that she prefers special meals for him each time he slept over. It was an open secret,” the source said.
The source added, “they fought recently after Chellah found that Mary was cheating on him with another man. Everyone in the family knows this story but it is just unfortunate that Chellah could do this to her.”
Asked about the authenticity of the videos, the source confirmed that it was the DEC Director General in the videos.
“We know the inside of that bedroom, the furniture and everything in that room is familiar. She is the one off course,” the source said.
Efforts to get a comment Tukuta also proved futile as his mobile phone was off.
Meanwhile, Zambia’s State House says President Hakainde Hichilema will not act on Mary Chirwa’s sex scandal.
Presidential Spokesperson Anthony Bwalya said President Hichilema will not spend time to act on Ms. Chirwa’s nude videos because he is busy focusing on job creation.
Speaking on Hot FM’s Breakfast Show Wednesday Morning, Mr. Bwalya said Ms. Chirwa has a left to do and should not be detracted.
“Those are allegations and the President is busy with the job creation agenda. We want Zambians to be discussing what we are doing here in Kalumbila and not those allegations,” Mr. Bwalya said.
He added, “the President asked me to assure the Zambian people to focus on how many jobs this government is creating. This morning, we are off to Kaleni Hills for the launch of the Pineapple Processing Plant which has been dead for forever, that is what is important,” he said.
Pressed further on the criminal nurture of the videos, Mr. Bwalya said Ms. Chirwa is doing a fantastic job in fighting corruption and recovering lost property and her enemies are not happy with her.
“Look, Mary has a job to do and let’s allow her to focus on her job,” Ms. Chirwa said. – Lusaka Times/NewsDiggers
