Gay rights activist Paul Kasonkomoma has challenged Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance to shut down the National HIV/AIDS Council over its dealings with organisations that promote the rights of gays and lesbians.

 In 2014, the Lusaka Magistrate Court acquitted Mr Kasonkomoma on charges of “soliciting for immoral purposes” after arguing for gay rights on a Muvi TV show in April 2013.

Following the decision by Reverend Sumaili to condemn the Lusaka Hustle TV series, Mr Kasonkomoma has challenged the Minister to leave the show alone if she fails to shut down NAC for promoting homosexuality in Zambia.

Mr Kasonkomoma said NAC is funding a number of local organisations using donor funds to promote the rights of homosexuals.

“I Challenge the Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance to shut down the National HIV/AIDS Council that employs and/or houses gay persons to conduct LGBTI activities or leave Kuni alone,” he said.

He added, “She too must explain how the Minister of Health allowed the Zambia to accept millions of Dollars for the same purpose.”

“Before Kuni is crucified, Honourable Sumaili should ask the National HIV AIDS Council, the Ministry of Health, FHI360 and University of Maryland what the following organizations do. 1.Friends of Rainka2.Lotus Identity 3. Transbantu Association Zambia and 4. Women’s Alliance.”

And American based Actor Patrick Shumba has defended the producers of Lusaka Hustle and accused Zambian authorities of hypocrisy.

“Those that petitioned the removal of Lusaka Hustle must’ve never watched anything Tyler Perry, CNN, Idols and so many more. My thing is, I don’t care what your beliefs may be but if you must judge, please be fair in your discrimination.

Don’t hate one thing and tolerate another. I’m sure the Sin is Sin saints will flood this post and my inbox. Since you let the other sinners get away with their sins and way of life, leave that guy/girl alone. Only God should be the judge.”

He added, “I’m also certain the we are a country of morals folks will be ticked by this post. What morals? Just relax and let those young people do what they do, make money and live their lives in peace.”

    • Agreed @ndobo. Same thing with our politics. We don’t want to volunteer, want to be given “free” alcohol to campaign. Meanwhile the Chinese are donating big money to get favours, we don’t donate to our politicians. Let’s donate our money and time then we will control what those people do. That’s what was done in fight for independence. How we forget what we are able to do…

    • @Ndobo you kicked them in balls again. Why gays think they can’t abstain? They wake up in morning to start painting themselves for sex. Gays don’t even go ku mabala, they can’t even grow mere tomatoes, lazy creatures.
      That Kasonkomona can’t even think of find a descent job like primary school teacher. Only job he can do is soliciting NGO white volunteers.

    • If we are as white as snow spiritually, why are we still getting donor funds from countries that have accepted gayism as a norm?

    • It’s like you have a daughter whom you know isn’t married and doesn’t work but she goes out in the evening and returns in the morning with goodies from Choppies, Food Lovers, Shoprite and sometimes she brings village chicken from Chibolya. She’s always dropped off by different vehicles, you don’t ask any questions. Instead you welcome her and enjoy the goodies. But when you see your neighbour’s daughter chatting with your husband you go ballistic and shout the whole neighbourhood about mahule trying to destroy your marriage! Are you sure neighbours will consider you as somebody who’s in her mind? When it comes to receiving money you don’t question

  1. The bigger hypocrisy/offence is that an organisation like the National AIDS Council is dealing with organisations that promote gays and lesbian rights. Is that their designated aim and purpose? If not, they need to be reprimanded to stick to their objectives.

    That said, I can and will never comprehend how a man can be attracted to another man with so many beautiful women around. They come in all shapes and sizes.

    • Ndobo, 100% is exagerrated boyi. Though places like Berlin and Cologne are full of them, they’re still a tiny minority in most of the cities in Germany.

  2. HOMO’s are here to stay get over it. I personally don’t tolerate the act, but we can not continue to pretend as a society and continue to sweep it under the carpet. I am not for the promoting of GAY rights but I believe they should be allowed to love who they want to love and it is none of our business. We all sin, a lot of ministers commit adultery yet we do not care about that.
    We have at least one GAY cabinet minister in Zambia, there may be more but I won’t mention his name if its MPs there are plenty, so let us not be hypocrites

  5. You can’t challenge Sumaili, she’s probably already hiding in some hole somewhere, she’ll come out the moment she smells something different from a challenge.

  6. One good thing is that the powerful President on earth Mr Trump whom most Africans relate well on this accord, does not support the what Kasokomona is saying in supporting the devils’ constitution as mentioned by our late President MHSRIP.

  9. Patrick Shumba ati ‘be fair in your discrimination’ … no wonder he’s struggling in Hollywood. How can discrimination ever be FAIR? Discrimination is exclusion and for it to be fair would be against the whole purpose it serves.

  10. @Ndobo has said it all. It’s this begging bowl mentality of the government. You can’t run a country free from underhand agendas, when you take funds from dubious sources who have an agenda counter to your culture.

    However the challenge thrown down is childish; quote, ‘challenged the Minister to leave the show alone if she fails to shut down NAC for promoting homosexuality in Zambia.’. You can’t fail to rectify one thing on condition you rectify the other. He should ask that they review the sources of funding for NAC in the long run. NAC’s function is to protect people’s lives. The thing this brings up is the warning to people to look after their sexual health, because if you don’t you will find yourself compromised.

  11. Okay here in South Africa we will encourage Multichoice to go to court in Zambia because all of you there do not have the courage to resolve this, politically or legally.
