The Zambia Police Service (ZPS) has arrested Iris Kaingu, an opposition politician and businesswoman, and charged her with indecent dressing with intent to corrupt the morals of the members of the public contrary to the laws of Zambia.
Kaingu was arrested after an organisation calling itself the Association of Unemployed Youths (AUY) reported her to the police.
AUY said Kaingu’s conduct was likely to corrupt morals contrary to Section 177(1)(a) Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
Kaingu sent tounges wagging after she attended Rihanna’s Fenty beauty launch dressed in a black see-through outfit without a bra and black underwear.
The event occurred on 26 May 2022 in Lusaka. Kaingu is the brand ambassador of Fenty beauty in Zambia.
According to Lusaka Times, Kaingu was detained at Kabwata Police station and will appear in court soon. The publication reported:
Particulars of the offence are that Kaingu, a Lusaka resident, on May 26, 2022, in Lusaka while attending the launch of Fenty Beauty in Lusaka did, with intent to corrupt morals, dress indecently in clothes that were unreasonably revealing.
In 2012, Kaingu was fined K10 000 after her arrest and conviction for the offence of featuring in a pornographic video that went viral on the internet.
