At one point, I looked down and saw two little girls—one brown, one white—in front of us. They were holding hands too, chanting fierce words of protest through their giggles. The organizers of the March on Washington were beset with accusations of exclusion What about the transwomen?
Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo says police are investigating a matter in which a transgender woman walked naked on Great East Road yesterday after allegedly escaping from Chainama Hills Mental Hospital. According to sources, Kakana Mwila was committed to Chainama by her family but she ran away and then shot a video which she streamed live on her Instagram. In the said video, which went viral on social media, a naked Mwila complains of human rights violations in Zambia and over how her mother has treated her. Look at the human rights discrimination in this country, my own mother is doing this to me. You her followers are my witnesses. Mwila, who describes herself as a Zambian Transgender rights activist and business mogul living in South Africa, then gets into a bus to an unknown destination. And when asked if police had received a report about the incident, Katongo said police officers were in the field investigating the matter. We do not have any other information other than that. Meanwhile, Mwila later posted on her Instagram page that the only interview she could take was from Oprah Winfrey. Why refer to it as her?
That was before he transitioned from Male to female other photo. Tanaka, who is based in South Africa is in Zambia to raise gay awareness and the naked march was part of the activism. She has also been identified as Kanyanta Moses Kakana of Zambia, a young feminist trans-woman and independent human rights activist who was recently elected alternate co-chair female on the Pan Africa ILGA board. Kakana was born as Moses and male and is in the process of changing her gender from male to female.
Scene from the nude protest by Kanyanta Kakana Tanaka. She had returned from a stay in South Africa, during which she began taking female hormones and had breast implant surgery as part of her transition from her original male body. My own mother is doing this to me. You are my witnesses. Because Zambia can be a dangerous place for LGBTI people or because she was apprehended, Tanaka promptly disappeared from public view after the protest, so she is not yet available to answer questions about it. Which is obviously not true, and a very sad and ignorant misconception. According to the news site Mwebantu , police are investigating the incident.
