Emily Kachote: Time For Zimbabwe To Stand Up

The big story over the weekend was over the whole story where it was revealed that Miss World Zimbabwe Emily Kachote has had nude pictures of her put on social media.

The Trust which runs the competition says it will wait until Friday when its head Marry Chiwenga returns until it makes a decision on Emily’s fate. Given she has admitted pretty much that the pictures are authentic then it is a bit, erm. Admission of guilt is weird.

But we are taking a look out of left-field here.
Emily Kachote: Time For Zimbabwe To Stand Up
Years before Emily strutted her stuff on the ramp at Mermaid Pools she went to her boyfriend’s house, got drunk and took some naughty pictures.

In a real world context, many young girls do the same thing if not worse. Because that is what comes with being young. They just aren’t found out partly because they destroy evidence or dated sensible people.

In this instance someone betrayed trust and decided to embarrass the young lady. Should we be punishing Emily or the person who has create such bad repute not only for her but for Zimbabwean women?

More progressive countries have specifically outlawed revenge porn (UK law is looking at up to 2 years in prison for people who put naughty pics up without permission. California did it before). Victims have to protected. We cannot continue to treat victims with shame and impunity.

Legislation has to be put in place for this surely.

As for the Trust, defend the girl. Show that bullies don’t win and that a country can defend even a flawed queen. We take care of our own.
