Prison made me reflect on my life says Iris Kaingu
And Iris says her prosecution for featuring in a pornographic video and eventual conviction and fine is a blessing.
The 21- year- old daughter of MMD vice- president Michael Kaingu was last month convicted for featuring in a pornographic video.
Iris spoke of her sex scandal that shocked the nation in an interview with Innocent Kalaluka on his weekly Smooth Talk show on Friday.
“It is a blessing that I had to, go through what I went through because that has actually helped me realise how much I am loved by my family, friends, and my church. To say the truth, I received so much support from a lot of people and all I can do is to thank everyone that supported me. If I had a chance to buy everyone who supported me a present, I would do just that,” Iris said.
She thanked her parents for the support and encouragement she received from them.
She said it was unfortunate that the pornographic video circulated when “it was not meant for public consumption”.
Iris said she had plans of going back to school to continue with her studies, adding that she intended to contribute to the development of Zambia after school.
“After school, I also want to look at how best I can be of help to the prisoners here in Zambia because of what I witnessed when I was denied bail. When I was expelled from school, I kept myself busy running my father’s business, Heritage Trails, so I was not bored that much,” she said.
She said when she was denied bail, she broke down only because she felt sorry for her family and those that loved her.
“I was imagining how the people that were supporting me felt when I went to prison. But one thing that I realised was that prison made me reflect on my life and what I had done wrong. What happened to me was a lesson to young people out there not to make the mistake that I made,” she said.
And sources have disclosed that Iris has gone to Malaysia to continue with her studies.
