GAY AGENDA IS FROM THE OPPOSITION CLAIMS JACK MWIIMBU
Government says it has unearthed a scam in which some political parties, media houses, individuals and pressure groups are sponsoring sporadic incidences of homosexuality and sodomy in Zambia.
Home Affairs and Internal Security Minister Jack Mwiimbu says government is aware that there is a long-term organizing scam to introduce homosexuality in the country.
He says some political parties working with some organizations are being brought to organize and trend the LBGTQ community to champion homosexuality in the country.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka, Mr. Mwiimbu says some political parties have hijacked the agenda in order to induce negative sentiments on the Zambian human rights record for the donor community to be compelled to withhold aid to Zambia.
He says the gay community and their actions are vividly sponsored and have been deployed in various schemes which includes well known media houses, sponsoring fashion shows, and alcohol and drug functions.
Meanwhile Mr. Mwiimbu says President Hakainde Hichilema has on various forums made it clear that his government shall not entertain homosexuality but however government will continue to uphold democratic tenants, the rule of law and respect of human rights.
