Police have cautioned members of the public to desist from posting inappropriate pictures of deceased people on social media platforms.
Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Danny Mwale revealed that this practice is against the Cyber Crime and Cyber Security Act of 2019.
In an Interview with Lusaka Star, Mr. Mwale advised the public to exercise caution with the law, adding that those found circulating such pictures will be answerable to the law.
” We have been working hand in hand with ZICTA and it is just a matter of us enforcing the law and bringing the culprits to book. Why post inappropriate pictures of dead people who can not even defend themselves,” he said.
He has since called on various stakeholders to work hand in hand with the police to bring people that post inappropriate pictures of the dead to book.
And Grace Ministries Reverend, Given Simwinga stated that it’s morally incorrect for the public to post inappropriate pictures of the dead on social media.
Reverend Simwinga further advised members of the public to keep privacy matters private, adding that such acts should be put to an end.
