STATE HOUSE AND PROMOTERS OF GAY RIGHTS

If the UPND really wants to know who is dealing with the defenders, protectors and promoters of gay rights, they should start with State House.

On September 29, 2021 President Hakainde Hichilema hosted an ambassador of gay rights at State House. His name is Mr Tony Blair – a former British prime minister. Mr Hichilema held talks with Mr Blair on the possible collaboration between Zambia and the Tony Blair Institute for global change. Mr Hichilema said the institute is doing commendable work and hopes it can assist Zambia.

Mr Blair said his institute stands ready to help the new dawn administration. Mr Blair has been recognised as one of the top gay icons of the past three decades, along with figures such as Boy George, Sir Ian McKellen and Barbra Streisand. Gay Times said Blair’s status as an ambassador of gay rights was undeniable. Mr Blair, as British prime minister, introduced laws recognising trans people, civil partnerships, banned employers from sacking employees because of who they love and made homophobia a hate crime.

Mr Joe Biden, on May 4, 2012 told NBC’s “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory: “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. Who do you love? And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that’s what people are finding out is what all marriages, at their root, are about, whether they’re marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals.”

This is the President of United States today, the current occupant of the White House. And early in his presidency Mr Hichilema was a guest at the White House – something they were very proud of, were boasting about!

This week Mr Hichilema visited European Union Parliament in Brussels and addressed it. Gay rights in the European Union are protected under the European Union’s (EU) treaties and law. Same-sex sexual activity is legal in all EU states and discrimination in employment has been banned since 2000. The Treaty on European Union, in its last version as updated by the Treaty of Lisbon in 2007 and in force as of 2009, makes the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union legally binding for the member state of the European Union and the European Union itself. In turn, Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union includes an anti-discrimination provision that states that “any discrimination based on any ground such as […] sexual orientation shall be prohibited.”

Furthermore, the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union provides in Articles 10 that the European Union has a positive duty to combat discrimination (among other things) on the grounds of sexual orientation and provides in Article 19 ways for the Council and the European Parliament to actively propose pass legislation to do so. These provisions were enacted by the Treaty of Amsterdam in 1999.

In June 2010, the Council of the European Union adopted a non-binding toolkit to promote LGBT people’s human rights. In June 2013, the Council upgraded it to binding LGBTI Guidelines instructing EU diplomats around the world to defend the human rights of LGBTI people. So if one is looking for gays and defenders, protectors and promoters of gay right the starting point should be State House.

And this is the problem with malice, it boomerangs. Bob Marley sang in a reggae rhythm, “Why boasteth thyself, oh evil man
Playing smart and not being clever?
I said you’re working iniquity
To achieve vanity, yeah (if I sow, I sow)…No weak heart shall prosper
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it…”

  1. HH HAS PUBLICLY DECLARED THAT HE DOES NOT SUPPORT GAYS! WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT HIM TO DO? DO YOU WANT HH TO CREATE THE ANTI-GAY SQUAD OF THE ZP TO BE SPECIALIZED IN ARRESTING GAYS? WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM M’MEMBE? DIDN’T SATA AS REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT VISIT USA WHEN JOE BIDEN WAS VICE PRESIDENT? WHY WERE YOU QUIET INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING HIM AS YOU ARE DOING TO HH? YOU CHOSE TO SUPPORT THE WRONG PARTY IN 2021, SO HEAL YOURSELF QUICKLY. YOU CAN STILL RECOVER YOUR GREATNESS SIR.

    • Mmembe your article is flawed and smells of a soiled man trying to soil another man in order to justify or share their own shame. Kabimba said you are gay and your party promotes gayism. Just defend your position without deflecting to the state house. If we follow your logic every country that does business with the US and the EU is pro-gay. Following your logic that would make all countries in the world including Saudi Arabia or Qatar or Iran to be pro-gay. That’s how dumb your logic sounds. Either you are gay or you are not. Either you proposed gay love making to Kabimba or you did not. PLZ JUST DEFEND YOUR POSITION. DON’T BRING IN OTHERS. NO NO NO…

  2. Ppl talk and defend gayism either out of ignorance about it or due to feeble mindedness and blind support for ppl they like unconditionally,irrationally.Bottomline is that it is too hard to find gay partners outside Africa especially where most ppl are financially stable.This is why mostly African blacks are targeted mostly by gay persons.Gay ppl have a lot of money to buy freedom to operate in spaces where ppl are poor.Rich pple especially politicians can be bribed to sell this freedom but the ppl who will suffer are the majority poor especially youths.None should feign being smart here
    Gayism is not ideal deal for Aftica particularly Zambia.Bolt away,off it !

  3. Fred Mmembe has been caught and proven to be a homosexual and Wynter Kabimba has all the first hand evidence which was given to the court. Now without shame Fred Mmembe is pointing at State House and other people like Tony Blair, etc to divert attention. Instead of all that bulshit, Fred Mmembe must tell us the truth whether he is a practising homexual or not. As an aspiring President he needs to make this categorically clear!
    Fed Mmembe is a slipery crook just like he managed to dodge taxes for 5 years until he was caught ready handed and The Post had to close. He borrowed US$4 miilion from DBZ which he never paid back and poor Zambians are still paying for his debt through higher taxes!

  4. You proposed winter kalimba in 2013, did you say yes.?tell us. Don’t say state house promotes gay. Membe, do you have girl friend there?

  5. Meembe, you have been caught pants down. This article based on Court details tells it all. It’s titled ” When Silence Means Consent: Wynter Kabimba Vs Fred M’membe” .
    You were given all the opportunity to explain yourself, but you remained silent. You now want to come through the back door. Just pay the cost for staying silent when you had actually challenged the allegations of homosexuality but failed to defend your position.
    Now you want to use the Post tactics? It won’t work

  6. PEOPLE, BY THE WAY IS FRED MEMBE MARRIED? IF HE IS MARRIED WHAT IS THE NAME OF HIS WIFE?
    IF HE IS SINGLE THEN WE ALL BELIEVE IN WHAT MR. KABIMBA SAID TO THE NATION ABOUT HIM PROPOSING SC WINTER KABIMBA.

  7. This gentleman is a fraud.

    There is a court ruling that left him losing after failing to adduce evidence against winter for alleging that he was a gay peddlor. Instead of explaining about that, mmembe wants to point accusing missiles at his sworn enemy HH and state house.

    He points to corruption in government but this is a man who never paid taxes deliberately defrauding government. What is more important than paying tax Mr mmembe?

    This guy should not have happened in politics without being prosecuted for running a post newspaper that avoided paying tax.

    Closure of the post was wrong because no one was made to account for the criminal act of avoiding taxes.
