Nchelenge District HIV/AIDS Task Force in Luapula (DATF) has slammed the high number of illicit sex cases recorded among pupils during the Provincial High School games held in the District recently.

The Taskforce has also taken a swipe at some teachers who took advantage of the games popularly known as Buffalo to have carnal knowledge of pupils.

The development came to light during a DATF stakeholder’s meeting held at the Nchelenge District Council yesterday.

Presenting a Quarterly report to the meeting, DATF HIV/AIDS Prevention Theme Group Secretary, Jedidiah Mumba said during the games Kashikishi was flooded by both pupils and teachers at night who were in most cases drunk.

Mr. Mumba said several named Guest Houses in Kashikishi were reportedly offering their premises to the pupils and teachers to use for their sexual activities.

He said the demand for places from which to have sex was very high such that some unscrupulous business people even put up makeshift structures using reed mats which they rented out to pupils and some teachers who wanted to indulge in the practice.

Mr. Mumba expressed worry that despite the high number of sexual activities recorded in the four days that the games were held there was no significant increase in the usage of condoms as sales remained low in shops and other condom sales outlets.

And Nchelenge District HIV/AIDS Advisor, Monze Muleya called on the Ministry of Education to put up measures to ensure that School games were not turned into an HIV infection activity.

He appealed to the Luapula Provincial Education Officer, Florence Kanchebele to take disciplinary action against teachers who were found abusing the pupils.

But Nchelenge High School Head teacher, Bernard Chimba defended the organising committee of the games saying all measures were put in place to ensure that pupils did not go out at night.

He said the games attracted a lot of people in Nchelenge District who could have been mistaken for the pupils, adding that some of the girls and prostitutes from the surrounding villages could have masqueraded as pupils.

He however said out of the 24 participating schools there was an additional 1 700 pupils at Nchelenge High School which made the number of pupils too big to easily control.

Mr. Chimba said starting next year the games will be played in zones namely Nchelenge, Kawambwa, Mansa and Samfya.

He said this will greatly reduce the number of participating pupils and will make it easy to contain them.

Mr. Chimba expressed disappointment that some teachers were also involved in abusing the pupils instead of protecting them.

He said there is need for Authorities to take stern action on the teachers and also on the guest house owners who allowed pupils to have sex at their premises.

Mr Chimba said there is need for Authorities to ensure that the issue is sorted out before a team traveled to Kasama in Northern Province for High School National games.

  2. Yaah!!! You must be a bastard to say like that. If you one of those pupils was one of your sisters or daughter what would you say? I don’t know where we are heading as human beings. Even some teachers are supposed to be second parents and role models are behaving in that immoral way. Some of these guest house owners also have daughters in those schools. They are literally killing the Zambian future by promoting sexual activities to the pupils. Iyo ni bakamushi!! May the Ministry of Education put in place some sanity in that region.

  5. If the sell of condoms was low, then maybe they had brought there own condoms. you cannot control teenage hormones, this is when they are mostly sexually active and would like to experiment with sex. These kids need to be guided and not abused.

    The teachers’ would probably bribe them for sexual favours and being young people they are open for exploitation. can you imagine a 40’something year old man slaughtering a 15 year old, absolutely terrible.

    #1 Yaaah & #5 Junza, it seems like paradise for you guys but in reality it isn’t unless you are 20 and under, don’t let your randy selves jump with excitement at the first mention of sex.

  7. This is nothing new , this has always happened in Zambia. But just like any self righteous bunch you all act shocked when it comes into the public eye. Isn’t it funny that the minute zambian declares itself righteous do so many of it’s unrighteous deeds like homosexuality, corupt pastors, diseases and underaged sex comes to light. In my whole life am yet to see a righteous person declare themself righteous . Only the unrighteous declare themselves righteous in a feign act to hide their true nature

  8. #10, the Holy Scriptures indicate:
    Romans 3 + KJV Bible
    Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Rom 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

    While some may have trouble with failure to control themselves sexually, others may have trouble with stealing or lying or indeed anything else that is SIN – transgression of the law. What we need to do is to ask the good LORD GOD to help overcome temptation as indicated in 1 Corinthians 10:13.

  9. …. 1 Cr 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].

    Let us educate our Zambian people to do better next time instead of just condemning them for their shortcomings. By this, I am in no wise encouraging anyone to sin willfully. For the Holy Scriptures record in Hebrews (KJV Bible): For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

  12. The journalists should have taken a more respomsible role in dealing with such reporting on young people(pupils).How much envestigations has the reporter done?It is known that pupils will have illicit sex but its whether it has reached high proportions worthy reporting even on international media.I would have concerntrated more on Pule’s irresponsible behaviour than this.The reporting on Pule is too shallow as if to say its the way of life.Pule must be catsigated before we advise our young ones at school.we must be an example to them

  15. I agree with 16 and 17.Thats why i have said this is a responsibility foer all of us to contribute and see how we can help these youngsters.I think some are ignorant and need help.They are also vulnerable to stupid teachers who are taking advantage of them.Then again you have economic factors into play.Therefore it should not be so much of condnming them but looking for ways of helping them so as to take resposibility of their own actions and make informed decisions.It is not new.We all passed through these schools

  17. #19, you see, not everything that happens in in western countries is right for africa, the culture we grow up in does not allow certain things in public. Now what have we done, accepted everything that our “donors” dictate to us, now we have destroyed our children all in the name of transparency, for me I am not surprised that these things are happening, we simply reaping what we sowed.

  19. Fellas, this issue is not peculiar to Zambia nor is it new, except that now with the advent of the net and other media theres more reporting and discussion. It is what it is whereever you go. Just pray and hope that your daughters/siblings can survive the pitfalls of adolescence and make it to the next level. There is little we can do when all these girls look ripe and ready in their early teens. The activities going on in schools and college are just the socio economic product of the times we live in.

If I was the PEO I’ll be giveing these kids condoms because no matter how tell them they will still find a way and do it. Lets all look back when we were teens especially ku ama sukulu ya Luapula. “Ulupundu talwakwata size”

  23. I agree with #24, its the times that we live in and this problem of teenage sex is everywhere. We cannot blame condom adverts on billboards or t.v infact those adverts should be appreciated for teaching those indulging in sex to protect themselves.In these mordern times, its the music (lyrics), movies, internet (which can even be accessed through mobile phones) that these teens pick up all sorts of things. Apart from praying for them (#24), it is also of extreme importance for parents/guardians to take the responsibility of talking to their children the facts about sex. Those days of leaving it to the children to growup and find out for themselves are long gone. …

  24. I agree with some comments. If church leaders like pule are setting bad examples what do you expect from youngs who mostly follow peer preasure. Pule wamona efyo wacita ku Luapula where you come from.
    Above all some pupils wants favours from teachers to pass their exams so, ni scratch my back and i will scratch yours

  27. There is no better place to have sex than the marriage bed. Sex is for the married and people who indulge in illicit sex end up in the grave. This dispensation is full of STD’s and one of them is HIV/AIDS. So, if you want to die before your time, go ahead and have as much sex as you want but the fact remains the same, “its WRONG TO HAVE SEX OUTSIDE MARRIAGE”. The Bible says, if you cant contain, it, why burn with passion, GET MARRIED so you can have 24 hrs free mind, not ukupupumina and not even ASHAMED.

  31. You know ladies and gentlemen, sometimes I wonder whether we shall continue cheating ourselves or prefer to handle the issue at hand. #33, I fully agree with what you are saying, are you telling me these children do not know what the bible says about sex, let us be realistic bane, these kids are just what 16 years? And you suggest they get married? Much as I do not have answers to this particular behaviour, refering these children to get married for the sake of having 24/7 sex is a misplaced advice. What I would suggest is that these kids since they are already having sex, make an intervention that is going to save their lives. Intimidating them about graves, dying etc will not solve it.

  33. Jesus likened the last days (As His return gets closer) to The days of Sodom. This is one of the signs that we are in the last days. Sodom lifestyle is everywhere even advocated by Ministers like Shakafuswa, same sex mariages are being legalised and even blessed in some churches.

    I can assure you, immorality will only grow worse. The time to seek salvation is now.

  34. #37 much as i abhor sex outside marriage, i also dont encourage promiscuity in the name of prevention using condoms. Tell me how is the actual prevelance rate of HIV infections? My dear, reporting in Zambia has long been known to put up cooked figures to appease the masses. We can just see from the low condom usage that all is not well. I am sorry for the point i made on getting married. I didnt mean these 16 year olds should line up for marriage. What of other activities that kept us busy at school and though we learnt a lot of human reproduction, we had so much to do academically that sex was a non starter. The govt should re visit some of the youth programmes we had in the 60’s and 70’s.

    The reason most young girls indulge in sex is peer pressure and the pride of testing unknown waters. Pipo, practise makes perfect but not on sexual issues. I have never heard that a person died because he or she did not have sex. Give me the statistics on this one.The western world as disgruntled as it is, has cheated the african world Zambia inclusive that people cannot contain sexual passions. They give out condoms which were meant for birth control in married people and dish them to youngsters. Hey dont you play with fire. Chingwere will be closed soon and surely this must ring a bell in your ears. Go there and just sample the age group that is common,mostly below 40 years,why,HIV

  36. AIDS related illnesses.
    People should come above morals and face reality rather than hide in the feelings. Even animals have sexual hormones but they only mate in season. What of a human who has control of things, why fail to control the hormone levels? By the way, the hormones get produced when there is a stimulus. The stimulus is in this case undue exposure to erotic material and perpetual visualizations of sexual acts in the form of pornographic videos or magazines.
    The best i can settle for is SEX WITHIN MARRIAGE and those trying to avoid this, well i cant force matters, choose the best way forward but i would rather you chose the GODLY WAY.

  37. Having sex is a big job. One can not normally have sex 24/7, unless they have taken something. Even in marriege 1 or 2 times pay week is the average. So whereas sex is good, encouraging young ones to get married so that thet can ‘enjoy’ sex 24/7 is a fallacy.

    Anyhow the children are just on the journey of discovery. But they should not overdo it. In Norway and probably some other European countries you dont scare children not to have sex among themselves, as it is considered they need to know these facts of life. Lets get real pipo.

  39. People please Pule has nothing to do with this. Those young children have no idea about what is going on with Pule. Its the teachers taking adavantage of these pupils. Being at boarding they need things like sugar,rice and this is what these teachers provide plus exam leakages, so these poor children are enticed into illicit sex by teachers for those things.
    I will not let my daugther go to boarding school!

  40. # 10 uk grad(jobless) is one sensible comment to read amidst all this sexomanic noise. Sex is really something good but if a good thing is used wrongly, it loses it’s value. When I was growing up, there were also such stories but every girl was “hard to get”, but now it seems young girls in Zambia will do anything for a few dollars today. We need to go back to traditional values. Bana fimbusa, where are you?

  43. Fact is God has made our nature, acquire puberty in our teens. With this come sexual arousal/behaviour. Before mans present modernity, world over, teens were married off soon after puberty, becoz all recognized that sexual maturity had been reached.
    Society has adopted norms;one, school/education; another, marriage after school or later years. Morals been made as sex acceptable in wed lock. As we can’t change nature, the dilemma we face is how we handle sexual behaviour in the interim; without HIV, world turned blind eye to this, we now have to accept that next best thing is protective sex rather than ideal talk & aspirations!

  45. #50 You are right. You will never stop teenagers and adults having sex. Best you can do is teach people to have sex in ways that dont make unwanted children and unwanted aids. Condoms is one way. Oral sex is another, and there are more.

  47. #46, Spot on lady L, this is what I mentioned earlier, some of you seem to miss the point, we are not talking about kids having sex for the fun of it, but the topic also states that teachers’ are actively induging in sexual activies with the kids. They are open for exploitation and this is what needs to be addressed.

    By the way, could someone enlighten me on the subject of Pule and shakafuswa, what have they done, as I’m ignorant to most of the news back home, I try hard to keep up with the news on the NET as much as possible and LT has been a good revelation for Me, Thank you.

No. 49.I think you better stick to the subject at hand which i find invaluable but i t6hink it is wrong to suggest that there are cooked figures here to please the masses.There are no masses to please here as AIDS is real.I am aware of all the figures in Zambia and there are a number of organisation that conduct them such and you can not claim they are all not credible.Better be positive about your own country than being negative at all times.I trust these fingures as i have worked with some organisations before.Learn to trust and appreciate your own or none will.

Girls were there, we were not so lucky then to enjoy them because of the curfews that were in place, of course 2 or 3 tearaways could claim having had quickies.
