KAIZER ZULU’S LAWYER SAYS BEATING OTHERS PROVES YOU ARE A MAN, VICTIMS SHOULD JUST DEFEND THEMSELVES
Lawyer for State House Special Assistant for Politics, Kaizer Zulu, Dickson Jere, says being beaten by your agemate is normal and victims must defend themselves.
In a posting , “My Matero Days” Jere accuses those reporting the matter or “parading themselves” for being beaten, as merely seeking compensation and financial benefits.
“Anyway, I am told now it’s part of fundraising to be beaten and demand compensation” writes Jere.
This follows a video that has emerged where a man known as Joe Coloured appears to be Kaizer Zulu’s latest victim of violence.
Joe was allegedly beaten by Kaizer Zulu at Chicago NightClub and sought medical treatment from hospital.
Dickson Jere is a lawyer defending Kaizer Zulu in the Lusaka High Court in a matter in which Bernard Nshindo, Sengelwayo Jere, Saul Maskoti and Mason Mweemba who were robbed, abducted, brutalized and beaten have sued him and the Attorney General.

My Matero Days
By Dickson Jere
When you are beaten by your friends, you could not go and report to your parents.
They will equally whip you for not standing up against your friends.
“Nanga ulibe manja (you don’t have hands to hit back?” Was always the response from parents.
So we learnt the hard way to stand up and fight back regardless of the opponents.
In case they “kunga” you (or in a mob) – your only option was to escape briefly and go to “bolola” by bringing your elder brothers and his friends to hit back.
We never heard of elderly people complaining that they were beaten. It was unheard of in Matero and in fact such a person will be a disgrace to the community, his family and friends. Weak soldier!
It is only now we hear people go in public and parade themselves that they were beaten by their almost agemates without hitting back.
“Nanga ulibe manja?”
Anyway, I am told now it’s part of fundraising to be beaten and demand compensation!
Have a good festive season as we close our offices today for the annual holidays. – ZWD
