The construction of a mosque in Lusaka's Rhodes park residential area is almost complete. Here workers, doing final touches to the surrounding

Munali constituency aspiring Member of Parliament Patrick Mungo has advised Government to pass a law that will restrict the construction of Mosques in Zambia.

But the Islamic Supreme Council of Zambia has described Mr Mungo’s sentiments as foolish.

In an interview, Mr Mungo said Zambia as a Christian Nation should guard against the uncontrolled growth of Islam in the country.

He claimed that Islam is a violent region which should not be allowed to dominate Zambia.

‘Looking at the rate Islam is growing in Zambia, it is really worrying. Time to pass a law to restrict Muslims from constructing Mosques in Zambia has now come and Government must act quickly,’ Mr Mungo said.

He added, ‘Right now Muslims have started expanding and going into rural areas but Zambia is a Christian Nation, declared, guided and governed by the Ten Commandments.’

But Islamic Supreme Council of Zambia President Suzyo Zimba said Mr Mungo is foolish to suggesting a law be passed to restrict the growth of Islam in Zambia.

‘This is foolish thinking and it is foolish people like that Mungo fool that is misleading people. Who tells him that Islam is violent?’

He added, ‘ the Zambian Constitution guarantees Freedom of Association and Worship so why is this fool getting the notion that he can start dictating how many Mosque’s can be opened?’

Mr Zimba has since asked Government to dismiss Mr Mungo’s suggestion with the contempt it deserves.

  1. Just the language of this man, is good enough measure to tell the nation what kind of people Mungo is referring to here. How can a high standing person call another person a fool. Really is this the language to come out or to be attributed to a religious leader? This man does not inspire an inch to change the way most Zambians view his religion and later on violence itself.

    • Shocking words, indeed, from a supposed religious leader. Because moslems have such low pinion of non-moslems and opponents that’s why they are quite willing and in fact wantonly kill them. Zambia is headed the way of Somalia and Nigeria if Islam is not curtailed. Islam is a violent and misogynistic religion everywhere you look. They have anxiously no respect for women who are treated as mere chattels in society.

    • I support Mungo. Islam May not be a violent religion, but it provides fertile ground for AL QUADA, BOKO HARAM, ISIS & AL SHABAB Activities. This religion is only TOLERATED in Zambia, and everyone that practices it should understand that they ARE NOT the predominant religion in our country. Actually, government should consistently MONITOR the way it is practiced here. And Zambians should NOT even be apologetic about it, coz we have the option of banning altogether.

    • Islam is a problem. It is violent, intolerant and bigot. Wherever Muslims become a major community that village, province and country goes to dogs. They are fanatic, worship a womaniser (a man who married a young girl of 7 years age and that too of his best friend’s daughter, what a role model!). They believe in killing anybody who joins their religion but wants to leave. Saudi Arabia does not allow any church, bible or any symbol of Christianity in whole of Saudi Arabia, why shall a Christian nation allow anything that is Islamic?

    • Zambia is a Christian nation. That’s enough law to block religions. However, since Zambians are civilized people, we still allow free association for other religions. This doesn’t mean that they can freely expand as they wish to all parts of Zambia. Maybe they should even gather at their homes.

      Mr Lungu must pay close attention to this issue of Islam in order to avoid future turmoil in the country. Look at al the countries where Islam has a stronghold. You guessed right, wars and civil tensions.

      I like guys like Patrick Mungo. He is the type of leaders that Zambia needs, not these compromising leaders we have. I mean both the ruling party and the opposition alike.

    • When it comes to ignorance on the issues of religion, Zambians place first. I am anti-theist. I support no religion. But my heart bleeds at the ignorance of my people.

      No christian I know in Zambia knows the origin of their Christian Faith. They don’t even care to research, that is what annoys most. Oh, not that. The idea that they pray to a white god and they think he will listen to them is what annoys most.

      Look at yourselves black people, the white god you pray to, Christ, is out to destroy you! He protects his own!

      He favors people who look like him, he made them in his image, not yours. You abandoned your gods that looked like you.

      Now you spend billions of Kwacha bleaching your skin and wearing wigs.

    • Before Zambia was single-handedly dubbed a Christian Nation by Frederick Titus Jacob Chiluba, no one past a law to restrict the proliferation of the Christian faith. You all lived and ate together like one big family. Ka kafupi had a health issue, he thought by offering Zambia as a sacrifice he would be healed. See what happened to him?

      Now, you want to create a law that did not exist for you?
      Zambia, you are courting trouble.

  2. I fully agree with Mr. Mungo. Zambia is christian nation. Islam is a very violent religion and no one can deny that, even, the moderate Islamist will kill if the name of their god is talked about. Look at how they stone women to death. Enslave their women. Why is it that none of the top Islam people do not talk against hate or killings? I would actually even go a step further and deport all Islamist from Zambia. Let them go to the middle east and kill each other their. Soon or later they will begin to do what they did in Kenya – and many of them are imported Kenyans that Kabimba illegally brought into the country.

    • “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

      But a nation headed for disaster if you keep on allowing strange religions to be practiced in Zambia.

      Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human. Muhammad said that Muslims can be put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.

    • The thing is Islam must spread all over the world first. This is what Moslems read in the Qur’an. And this will definitely happen. Moderate Moslems are good people, just as their moderate Christian brothers are. We should just strive to respect each other’s opinions and choices in life. Where there is turmoil in the middle east just know the US häd been there. The biggest difference probably the thing that will make Islam survive longer than Christianity is that it dictates your way of life. Christianity you pick the bits yu like. EZambians are not serious, so forgot stopping Islam. These Christians in power who can sell their souls to the devil. . . You think they can stop this. Utterly stupi.d

  3. That is poor reasoning for a whole MP. Being a christian nation does not mean that we force people into christianity. The freedom of worship still exists and one should choose his/ her religion voluntarily. We should not discriminate our muslims brothers or link them to terrorism as that is a separate criminal group and not in any linked to Islam and should be treated as such.

    • @MAN KENYA: Please go and try to plant a church in Iraq, Iran, Saudi-Arabia or any of those Muslim countries and see what will happen to you. No, that even too big of a task; just go and give a Muslim guy in the mentioned countries a small copy of the Bible and tell them that Jesus loves them.

      Once you have done that, please come back to Zambia and tell us what happened. Oh, I forgot, you wont make it back alive.

      We are not forcing Christianity on other people. What we are saying is that Zambia is our country and we have a right to block violent religions from flourishing here. They (Muslims) can pray at home or in their communities in “peace” if they so wish.

      Please start closing those Mosques before its too late.

      And about Boko Haram;
      ‘Nigeria’s militant Islamist group Boko Haram – which has caused havoc in Africa’s most populous country through a wave of bombings, assassinations and abductions – is fighting to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state’.

      Tell me again these are not associated with Islam.

  4. I totally agree with Mr Mungo. If we allow Islam to spread uncontrollably very soon we shall have the Kinya situation in our Country snd this cannot be allowed at all cost. These moslems are taking advantage of the poverty and vulnerability of our people and are using handouts money, food any wealth to woo people to that violent religion.

    Can the Govt take this warning seriously and put in some measures to curb growth of Islam in our nation

  5. Truly When we look at the language their leader is using, you can tell that this Islamic religion is violent. How can a religious leader be so abusive even when someone has committed wrong against him? Does this religion promote unity and forgiveness? This religious leader should have responded to Mungo in a very respective & humble way in order to be given support by the majority. Me too I’ve seen as if truly Islam is a violent religion according to their response to Mungo.

  7. Mr Mungo u are a very bold man I have ever heard and met so far. You are not coward…actually u must be president of this nation. Your sentiments has really shown how spiritual u are, because u are able to see where we are going. These Muslim’s with their religion should be controlled in this nation. I’m also seeing a situation where once they have expanded in number in our nation, they will have a big voice and zambia will be like Nigeria. And we should not blame anyone should Boko Haram rise in Zambia. Already we have their training center in Chaisa Mosque where they train Suicide Bombers. Open your eyes people. Open your eyes Zambia. Thumbs up mr Mungo.

As a leader of the islamic. first you are wrong by calling your friend as foolish. as a leader you need to give advise and defend your religion. you are just telling us how you muslims behave. if a leader can act like the way you have done, what about the other members of the mosque.

  9. Mungo is right. There’s a restriction Saudi Arabia (the birth place of Islam) on the freedom of other religion. This Muslim supreme leader is blind to his religion. How can he deny that Islam in not violet. Which religion has produced the Alqaida, ISIS, Boko haran and Al Shabab etc, to mention abut a few. But Lungu and RB will do nothing and RB is even worse who allowed the mosque to be built where houses were on Addis Abbaba Road. If we Zambians are not careful with Islam now, it will not be long before we start crying like our Kenyan friends.

This shallowness is scaring.If someone who wants to be an MP can think like this,then I’m afraid.Both islam and christianity are alien to zambia but are allowed becoz of freedom of association which is guaranteed in the constitution.Pastors are burning wives and stealing from church members,to you its okay.Leave moslems alone to enjoy their rights as citizens.Who told you that you have more rights as a christian than your fellow zambian who is a moslem.Be serious.

I actually believe that labeling Zambia as a Christian nation is wrong, I am a christian by the way. If Zambia is a free and democratic country then, why should we decide how many mosques can be built and not churches. Christianity has been a violet religion, people have been killed if they didn’t not believe in it, so lets not paint other religions as violet forgetting how the christian faith over powered the world.

I don’t think such religions should be protected by the constitution. So just because Christians and other religious groups also DO EVIL is not a justification to also tolerate a religion that TEACHES EVIL.

What about Pakistan where a man was jailed for being a Christian? Can he say that the people who passed this law in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are very foolish? The reaction from Mr Zimba is a clear manifestation of his violent behavior. Mr Zimba should just admit that islam is a very violent and oppressive religion. Islam is actually the biggest threat to world peace. Muslims believe in imposing their religion on everyone. Mr Zimba cannot kill at the moment because Muslims are not in the majority in Zambia. We need to support Mr Mungo. We do not want Boko Haram and Al Shabaab in Zambia. Time to act is now.

    Islam is a violent religion that does not practice forgiveness. Those of you who have not been to most of these Islamic nations do not know how christians are treated. Take forexample Khartoum in Sudan where regular times the christian churches in the central town are constantly set on fire by these muslims. Even the response from their supreme leader can tell you that these guys are bad news. If you speak against their koran or their God Muhamad you are labelled as an enemy of Islam and you will have to be killed. Look at the young woman who was killed for allegedly burning the Koran which was not even true. If you are a muslim and you denounce it and convert to christianity you will be killed unless you convert to muslim as a christian.

Some of us lamented over this a long time ago but we had no voice. It won’t be long before we begin to see this cult bring violence in the name of Islam. If Zambia was an Islamic state there would have been no christian in this country, these guys Kill other faiths . Mr Suzyo Zimba is is not a real man he does not see the violence perpetrated by his new acquired cult. He calls Mr Mungo foolish without advancing any substance to the discussion. Some of us have lived in Islamic states we know how intolerant this cult is. We should give them an open check book, much as we are a peaceful nation.

  23. @PP: I do not support the acts of terrorism in any way having witnessed how cruel these criminals are but I would wish to point out one thing. These people take advantage of poverty and entice the youth with money for terror recruitment . They kill mostly christians to insinuate that this is a Christian/ muslim war which is not the case. Fellow muslims equally condemn them and those unlucky (muslims) are killed by these criminals . So, I wonder in my opinion whether its right to condemn Isamic totally without contradicting the law on freedom of worship. However, its also very important for the govt to spy out what is taught in these mosques to avoid possible these ideological recruitments.

Moslem on the other hand will kill anyone who is not Moslem in their nations and yet they want to impose their religion on sovereign nations like ours. No Sir.

NON OF THEM IS CHRISTIAN. WHY SHOULD WE PRETEND AS IF WE LIVE ON MARS WHEN WE CAN SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING DAYLIGHT.

    THEY ABDUCTED GIRLS IN NIGERIA WERE SEXUALLY CHEWED, MADE PREGNANT WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT AND THEN U CALL THESE CHALATANTS FRIEND PEOPLE? NOT UNTIL WE GET ADBUCTED THATS WHEN WE SHALL SEE SENSE IN MUNGOS STATEMENT.

  34. Mungo is right…..This Islam is a violet religion which does not respect women and non Moslems. A Woman can not be allowed to speak in front of men or take up any leadership position like our Vice President or chief justice and later on the Inspector General of police. Mr. Zimba knows this very well and even the Zambian Moslems, especially the Indians in Makeni do not recognize him as their leader. Mr. Zimba used to be a Christian and saw the benefits that are there in working with these Moslems. For the Christians, revenge is left to the LORD but for Moslems, revenge is for them. If you offend a Moslem, you are gone in whatever form…….Not a good religion to promote in Zambia because we are a Christian nation.

  36. It is clear that Mr Zimba representing the Islamic Council, is very violent (at least in his language).
    How can someone VIOLENTLY deny that they are not VIOLENT?
    How can some fight people to convince them that he is not a fighter?

    I will not take it that Zimba is individually violent, because he was in fact speaking in representing Islamic Council of Zambia. Thus his character, views, language and feelings projected in his speech represent those of the organization he is representing.

We can get a leaf from what is happening in other countries where Muslims are in large numbers! Similarly, the way Zimba has come out in this article can give better indications what a real Muslim is like. Let us not lock the door when the horse has been stolen! We don’t want to be victims in future due to the ill activities of Muslims.

  42. Mr. Mungo is very RIGHT. Muslim is very hypocritical as a religion. In the Quran their Supreme Leader Muhammad had acknowledged that JESUS was a prophet from GOD (Allah). The question is: WHY DO MUSLIMS like Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and ISIS kill Christians and destroy all Christian Artifacts in the areas that they have conquered???
    Islam came into existence 400 years after Christianity and all Muhammad did was to copy the Old Testament in his Quran whilst acknowledging that JESUS was also a prophet from Allah as himself – he later added a few revelations of very questionable origin as words dictated to him directly by Allah. This is just a copy cut religion that envied the popularity of Christianity.

IF YOU GO TO IRAN OR SAUDI ARABIA WHICH ARE ISLAMIC COUNTRIES YOU WILL BE VERY LUCKY TO FIND A CHURCH OR KINGDOM HALL. IN FACT ONE DON’T DARE TO EVEN START DREAMING UP OF SUCH IDEAS. SO, WHY SHOULD WE BE APOLOGETIC TO OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS IN ZAMBIA? WE ARE CHRISTIANS AND WE SHOULD BE SEEN AS SUCH. LET’S PRESERVE OUR COUNTRY AND NOT INVITE TROUBLE OR CREATE POTENTIAL TROUBLE THAT WE SEE IN MOST COUNTRIES EG NIGERIA, SOMALIA AND OTHER ISLAMIC COUNTRIES. ZAMBIANS ARE PEACE-LOVING AND WE SHOULD REMAIN AS SUCH.

  46. I like the boldness of Mungo and I earnestly hope his words are heeded. The man is telling us all what time it is.

    Regulation is definately needed before things get out of hand. It is definately a good measure to control the building of mosques. Nothing against having a muslim community – we know the majority of them are able to live peacefully with christians but how do you sort out the bad apples if the bunch keeps growing bigger?

    While I disagree with Mungo about restricting religion, i urge government to be vigilant on harbouring terorism. For sure one day islamic violence will errupt in Zambia if we do not creatively ensure extremism is controlled in Zambia.

  51. Government kindly take heed of Mr Mungo’s timely warning. These mosques are being constructed at a very fast rate and slowly but surely taking up very strategic locations….e.g One near state house on burma road, addis abbaba mosque. We are not saying ban the religion completely, but regulations need to be put in place where this religion can be closely monitored.

Islamic characters are in the process of setting up all of educational institutions, including all manner of madras-as, colleges, not to mention universities in such places as Mpulungu, Kaputa, etc. Action to arrest these and other forms of Islamist intrusion in our Christian citadel ere urgently called for.

  53. Most Zambians pretend to be Christians full stop, the country was declared a christian nation by someone who never exhibited Christ like behaviour but that is another story. The difference between the Christianity of today and Islam is that Christians will try to convince us to change our ways while Muslims will force us to change our ways and that’s what makes it worse. Why should you force someone to dress a certain way, not drink beer, not cut their hair or beard, not listen to certain music, stone them to death for tearing a page from the koran etc. Despite the freedom of religion in the country we should be cautious with those who would use force to save us from ourselves.

Muslim know well that the central political power is in Lusaka and when time comes they will just mobilise enough and challenge The political leaders. I EXPECT HIS EXERLENCE LUNGU WILL TAKE A DELIBERATE MOVE TO PUT A HAULT TO THE BUILDING OF MOSQUES. ONE THING ABOUT THESE MOSLIMS IS THEY HAVE THE MONEY FROM THE MIDDLE EAST AND ARE CAPABLE OF BUYING PIECE OF LAND ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY< HENCE THE NEED TO PUT A DILIBERATE POLICY. Zambia is a Christian nation and we are endangering our future generation if we allow these guys built wantonly through out like this. Worse still, our youths are poor hence

If Islam is hiding in freedom of worship in our country, the best we can to do away with them and remain peaceful as we have always been is to do away with the freedom of worship completely so that we safeguard the future generations from stoning of women, and terrorism. How can a religious leader start insulting if he means good to the people? Its a wake up call.

    AS ZAMBIAN, I THINK WE SHOULD NOT BE ACCEPTING MORE INSULTS FROM THESE FOOLISH AND STUPID SO CALLED, Islamic Supreme Council of Zambia. ZAMBIA IS FOR ZAMBIANS AND ZAMBIA HAS BEEN RIGHT DECLARED A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY AND FOR THE RIGHT REASON. FIRSTLY, THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THIS ZAMBIAN SUPREME NONSENSE SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS IS ZAMBIA. THERE IS NO WAY A ZAMBIAN CAN GO TO IRAN INSULT IRANIANS PUBLICLY AND COME BACK AS A HUMAN BEING. THAT ZAMBIAN WOULD COME BACK IN A CASKET AND BEHEADED. SO, FOREIGNERS AND THEIR ORGANISATIONS WHETHER IT BE CHRISTIAN, IMF, HINDU SHOULD LEARN TO RESPECT ZAMBIANS WHEN IN ZAMBIA AS ZAMBIANS DO WHEN ABROAD/OVERSEAS.

  67. @Aleshaday: I am a christian and Kenyan where terrorism is rampant. I am not a sympathiser of the terrorists but I respect the law. One cannot just wake up one day and overturn the law abruptly banning other religions. Due process must be followed to change the law and the defendants can use justice (court) to withhold your intentions, You can’t chase a rat from your house by burning down the whole house, can you? We cant excel by eliminating others. The govt should humanly monitor and spy out the mosque’s teachings for security reasons. Measures may be taken but justice must prevail, humanly speaking.

When i returned back home, i remember informing my wife that it was worrying with the number of mosques being built in Zambia. I have got nothing against the muslims, but over the years i have seen destruction caused in name of being muslim. Here in the UK, they are facing a big problem and if this issue is not resolved asap, will be seing destruction in Zambia in years to come, similar to what we are witnessing in Nigeria and all over the world. Well done to Mr Mungo, a man who talks sense before it is too late.

    I once said that these people are coming in our country every day without control.
    To prove their arrogance, visit any of their buildings in Makeni and you shall find they have gone beyond the established boundary. WHAT ARE THE TOWN PLANNERS DOING? The same goes for mosques which are being built everywhere to accommodate these salaula selling muslims. This is the story of the “master and the camel” where the master was displaced by the camel, because he felt pity for it. DON’T GIVE THEM SPACE ANY MORE.

These people are evil. very soon we will start having suicide bombings in Zambia.The warning is very timely, let us see the happenings in Countries were Islam in practiced.Young Zambian I would like to urge you in future not to be signing Declarations before being understood fullest. Example; The Abuja Declaration,if you thoroughly go deep in this paper, you’re going to ask yourself many questions why someone can append signature because it talks about Africa Muslim world.
