Namibian figure; Beata Siteketa, also known as Betty Davids, intends on donating the money that IPC spokesperson; Imms Nashinge, was obliged to pay her for defamatory remarks to the Women and Child Protection Unit.
According to Davids, she opted to donate to the Women and Child Protection Unit because it helps victims of gender-based violence and has a broad objective to safeguard vulnerable groups in society. “We must all treat one other with dignity and respect.” She remarked, “Any sort of abuse should be forbidden.”
She also stated that her experience has opened her eyes to the “deafening” silence that vulnerable members of society face as a result of a lack of resources.
Nashinge was taken to court earlier this year for making defamatory remarks against Davids on the WhatsApp group Global Africa Unite. “You see the type of shit I talk about?” Betty Davids, who are you? Our government promotes a kid who is known for sleeping around with older men like Paul Shipoke. Kaxuxwena is next.”
“In this country, ordinary people are unimportant. This suggests that the useless investment nonsense in the presidency will be a serious flow. That Nangula woman will be sorry she left PWC. Please do not use state institutions to promote prostitutes,” read his defamatory remarks.
The Namibian government, according to Davids, is transforming the Women and Child Protection Units into a “one-stop shop.” Much of the foundation work has been finished, and the upgrade process will start soon.
She ended by expressing her hope that her little donation will set a precedent, encouraging others to continue to support the “rights of others to exist and live dignified lives.”
