    The group members, however, did not buy the excuse, arguing that if he was trying to delete it from a different group, it meant that he posted it himself as WhatsApp could not allow anyone to delete what he did not post in a group. Although the minister himself does not feature in the 30 seconds obscene video which was apparently filmed by an unknown third party, the youths demanded that Sichalwe must face the law for circulating pornography, adding that it was unacceptable for a government leader holding his position to be found with such material on his phone.

    The video depicts a woman laid on an office table, screaming with pleasure, as a man performs oral sex on her.

    Minister Sichalwe, who is otherwise an inactive member of the group, made his very first contribution at hours, and apparently did not realise until about an hour later when group members who initially could not identify his phone number petitioned him to delete the obscene clip.

    This modern technology…! President Edgar Lungu with Chawama MP Lawrence Sichalwe in Lusaka-picture by Tenson Mkhala Some other senior members of the ruling party joined the minister in expressing remorse, but the more they attempted to silence the youths, the more the members got angry. First of all, the minister must have been watching that porn during working hours, that is unacceptable. We now know what the minister was doing during working hours, he was trying to send a pornographic video to someone, but before sending it, he was watching.

    Yes he has apologised, but it does not end there. A lady in Chingola is facing criminal charges right now for circulating obscene material. It is an offence and there is precedent. Now, here is a person who is supposed to be implementing that policy, doing the same thing. We are dealing with hypocrisy now and we must deal with it like any other person. Who sends such a nonsensical video on a platform like this kweena? Uku kutumpa, shaaa! He runs a ministry so we demand to know.

    But in an interview with News Diggers! Sichalwe explained that the video was brought to his attention as a problem that needed to be dealt with, but that he had no interest in handling it since he could not report issues of that nature to his superiors. So, for me, I had no interest to handle it because I could not even report to my superiors over such and that was the more reason I was deleting it. Later yesterday, Ministry of National Development Planning spokesperson Chibaula Silwamba issued a statement, dismissing reports that the participants in the pornographic video were employees there.

    We note with deep contempt the mischaracterisation that the false reports have portrayed. We wish to warn perpetrators that production, dissemination or possession of obscene materials is a punishable offence. Section 1 of the Penal Code of the Republic of Zambia states that any person who is found guilty of making, producing or possessing obscene materials is liable to imprisonment for five 5 years..

    The owner of the house, a former Copperbelt University student who was found in the house during the raid, was yesterday picked up to help with investigations. The studio is fitted with a fully-computerised ultra-modern surveillance system comprising six miniature video cameras connected to a CCTV closed-circuit television system, an intercom system on all doors and a touch-sensitive alarm system, which is wired to all windows. CCTV is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors.

    It is often used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations and convenience stores. Using the surveillance system around the house, the occupants managed to disconnect and dismantle one of the computer hard discs when they noticed the police approaching, but the equipment was later re-assembled and pornographic material was discovered on it.

    A plain clothed policeman inspect a room where fake music and movies were being pirated Acting DEC Commissioner Solomon Jere said the commission was concerned about the pornographic materials, and the discovery would be followed by a seizure of the house, the equipment and all the items discovered inside. He said some people had already been arrested and more were likely to be picked up as investigations progressed.

    Among the items found were multi-media computers with a capacity of duplicating 48 DVDs or CDs per minute, colour printers for printing the covers of the pirated materials, and laptops. Hundreds of movies on DVDs, blank CDs, copied items, cover printouts and cuttings were also found in three of the rooms in the house. The house was fully equipped with monitors for the CCTV system as well as different types of uninstalled surveillance cameras.

    Mr Nkonde said it took police four days to investigate the goings-on at the house before the raid was effected around hours yesterday. He said although the team disturbed the surveillance cameras by pointing them upwards to avoid detection, the law enforcement officers experienced difficulties in entering the house because of the alarm system on the window panes. He said the house was conveniently built without a wall fence in order for surveillance cameras to detect all approaching objects and persons.

    Mr Nkonde said that because of the suspected illegal activities discovered in the house, the officers believed that the surveillance system was meant for detecting approaching law enforcement officers rather than criminal elements.

    Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Nyirenda, who rushed to the scene, commended the law enforcement officers who made the raid, saying the discovery was a major bust. Mr Nyirenda said the Government had for a long time thought that the pirated materials were being imported into the country. He said the discovery showed that the offensive materials were locally manufactured. The ministry would now be more alert in detecting the local sources of the pirated materials and ensure that the producers were dealt with.

    He urged the public to report whoever was suspected of being involved in the scam, saying the owner of the house and the studio in Chunga would have to help the police with investigations. The owner of the house denied that he operated an illegal studio and explained that he and his partners were in the process of forming a company related to studio work.
