Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba has called on Zambians to unanimously reject and denounce people and some institutions championing homosexuality.
Mr Kabimba advised Zambians to be wary and report to law enforcement agencies some people working to ‘import’ and sponsor the homosexuality practices in Zambia
Speaking in Lusaka on Saturday evening at Pamodzi Hotel during a colourful fundraising dinner organised by the Patriotic Front Lusaka District, he said Zambians should discard homosexuality at all costs.
“As Zambians, we declared that we are a Christian nation and there is no way we can allow this un-Zambian culture. I want to urge all Zambians to rise and denounce this vice.
“Why should someone or institutions want to import this homosexuality and try to influence others to practice it? We can’t allow it, I am calling on all citizens to stand firm and reject it,” Mr Kabimba said.
He said Zambians should not be influenced to fall prey to homosexual practices because of some international organisations which had pumped in colossal sums of money to sponsor the vice.
He said citizens should be cautious of some people receiving finances from external institutions and pumping it in Zambia in a bid to massively influence innocent citizens on homosexuality recruitment drive.
Meanwhile, Mr Kabimba who is PF Secretary General said the ruling party would not be tempted to extort any finance from Government because it wanted to be self-reliant.
He said the party wanted to be autonomous and self-reliant and that it would stand on its fundamental pillars of being transparent by not abusing any Government funds.
“PF as a party, will not deep its hands into Government resources. This why even when I am going for party functions, I don’t carry any Government imprest, or use my official GRZ vehicle. We want our party to be independent of Government resources,” he said.
He said fundraising functions for PF were vital in raising funds from its many friends unlike some former party regimes who allegedly abused Government resources to sponsor party functions.
Mr Kabimba said President Sata was a ‘hero’ of the PF because he had managed to move the party to higher heights adding that PF was a party for all..
“PF was not formed to make some people get fatter in their offices. This is why President Sata is in a hurry to carry out various developmental projects countrywide to improve people’s welfare,” he said.
He said the ruling party had learnt lessons from former party administrations and warned civil servants against continuous frustrating of Government’s developmental agenda.
He said civil servants who did not always want to see Mr Sata’s official portrait as Head of State in their offices, should relinquish their positions because the Head of State was on course to reconstruct Zambia.
Earlier, fundraising committee chairperson Charles Chimumbwa said the PF was started from a humble background and the fundraising events would be on-going to raise finances for its operations.
PF Lusaka District chairperson Goodson Banda said the fundraising venture was meant to help in procurement of transport to assist in reorganising and recruiting more party members.
Among many people and companies that pledged towards the cause included Mr Kabimba with KR5000, Local Government Minister Emerine Kabanshi KR3000, Lusaka City Deputy Mayor Mulenga Sata KR 5000, a Mr Lombe Bwalya KR20, 000 and Avic International limited KR5000.
