Sex crime singer re-arrested in Zambia

Police in Zambia have detained popular and controversial musician Clifford Dimba for alleged indecent assault. Dimba, whose stage name is General Kanene, is not new to such controversy. He was jailed in 2014 for having sex with an underage girl and sentenced to serve 18 years. But President Edgar Lungu pardoned Dimba in July 2015 and appointed him as an ambassador against gender-based violence. This appointment was withdrawn after widespread condemnation by both local and international activists. In his latest alleged transgression Dimba is accused of having continuously touched a woman’s breasts against her wishes, according to police spokesperson Esther Katongo.
