Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo has reinforced government’s justification for banning South African television presenter and Actor Somizi Mhlongo who is allegedly a gay entering the country.

Mr. Kasolo says governments’ position is in line with constitutional provisions that promotes national values and principles adding that it NOT condone anybody diluting the country’s morality and integrity.

Speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka, Mr. Kasolo says Zambia has defeated aliens who have attempted to introduce homosexuality in the country.

He encouraged Zambians to continue to shun practices that are alien to the country’s cultural values.

Recently, National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili banned South African television Presenter, Actor and Television Personality Somizi Mhlongo who is allegedly gay, from entering Zambia.

Reverend Sumaili said government would not condone a situation where organisations would invite people with questionable attributes that might compromise the morals of the land.

  1. The prevention of Somizi Mhlongo and Zodwa Wa Banthu is against Fundamental human rights. People are free to belong to their preferred sexual orientation in the case of Somizi. People should also have been allowed to see and appreciate where they really come from in the case of Zodwa. People need their Fundamental Freedoms and rights.

    • All they want is you to be distracted from their stealing and FIC debate….imagine the whole minister and PS on this boy with words like … NOT condone anybody diluting the country’s morality and integrity.
      I want to talk about corruption of this PF govt and how far security agencies have gone in FIC intelligence Report investigations!!

    • The government doesn’t even need to explain themselves as to why they barred this gay guy from coming to Zambia. I mean look at this guy in the picture above, wearing what appears to be a stup1d skirt and a blouse. Who in their right mind would want Zambians to start looking like that? Such sick minded individuals should not be tolerated in Zambia. They corrupt people’s morals and are agents of the West’s agenda to Sodomize Africa. Keep them out of the country. So kudos to the Zambian government. You did a good job. We don’t want promoters of homosexuality in Zambia.

    • @LIE-DETECTOR are you saying that Zambians are so weak to such a point that by seing someone who is gay they may change their sexual orientation? If that’s the message you trying to send then i give up on you and your fellow Zambians. Your kind of behavior is the same like that which created racism, for white people had in their minds that they were better than blacks so they created all those evil doings against blacks for the mere fact that they didn’t accept what looked different to them. I think you should learn to appreciate those that are different to you in order to appreciate yourself. Somizi never killed no person but i bet you’d rather welcome a killer in your country than someone who is saxually different to you. Grow up please.

    • @ Kingdom,… Racial discrimination has nothing to do with the homosexual agenda. Black people do not CHOOSE to be born black, where as homosexuality is a choice. Europeans discriminated against black people for that which black people had no control over—their black race. Homosexuality is a CHOICE, together with it’s cousins–transgender, transsexual, trans everything perverted lifestyles, regardless of what some delusional individuals may want to argue otherwise. It’s a learned behavior that can be unlearned. There have been many ex-homosexuals, who ditched the lifestyle and became straight. Secondly, countries have a right to allow or not to allow foreigners trying to come into their country based on their behavior. But what the Western world is trying to do is to IMPOSE…

    • … this perverted lifestyle on Africans, even though they know fully well that homosexuality is unAfrican and unChristian. No one is telling homosexuals not to practice their lifestyle—in their countries,i.e. if their countries allow that lifestyle. What Africans don’t want is for homosexuals trying to IMPOSE their lifestyle on countries that have told them they don’t allow that behavior. And when the country says no to them, they cry discrimination. And yes, it’s not good for our children to see a man dressed in a blouse and a skirt, like the gay guy in the pic above. We don’t want our children to think that that’s acceptable behavior.

  2. Society doesn’t always operate on principle of subjectivity and individualism but what the majority accept as befitting. Individuals left on their own may feel like sleeping with dogs, children, old women and so forth. Should society leave them to do whatever emotions or feelings enter their trousers and skirts?

  3. Thumbs up Permanent Secetary and Sumaili. Our culture is following the order of nature. Never seen a cock riding another cock nor a Bull riding another bull because it is not in line with the order of nature.
    We should not misinterpret human rights – Does it mean if I am a Pedophile then I should be free to preach molesting babies? Or I should be free to do the act of molesting kids without consequences ALL IN THE NAME OF HUMAN RIGHTS.
    There is a limit to everything!!!

    • Your argument is based on misinterpreted information. There are fundamental differences between different cultures but the general rule that must be understood is freedom of human choice and expression within the confines of the law.

      Your ideologies, and those of this nation at large, are a result of colonialism by a Christian nation. But that in no way allows you the right to decide what your peers should be allowed to do or how they should express themselves, so long as they do not violate the rights of other human beings. Take note of the last sentence as it distinguishes rape and pedophelia which violate another beings human rights with homosexuality which is purely consensual. Now I am not advocating for homosexuality, I personally believe it is wrong but that does not mean it is…

    • @C-General. I wonder if you ever gave it a thought that these bibles and constitutions were all written by people like you. By this i mean don’t just believe all the things that you read for you never know all the intentions of authors of such documents. Sometimes you need to think about these things and ask yourself one simple question, what has a gay guy done to you which you would deem harmful just by being gay. I bet your answer may be quotes from the Bible. Anyway you are free to believe whatever you wish to, that’s freedom. but don’t get carried away and think you are above other people simply because you think your religion or beliefs are the righteous ones. All these religions were started by people for their own reasons. So be carefull and use your mind wise. Only if people…

  7. Seriously you think gay people dont exist in Zambia? And what message are you sending to the international community by doing this? Zambians are a very very dull and backward people, soaked in intellectual and economic poverty and whose only preoccupation is clinging to non existent morals and that bible.

    • Lol Ati “Zambians are very very dull and backward”. So in your reasoning, you think practicing homosexuality is being smart, cool and entails modernity? You’re sick!

    • Accepting a human being for who they are is not dull or backwards.

      As for “sickness” it must be awful to carry around so much hatred for others as Luapula and other here seem to do.

      Better is just to get over it – human beings are incredibly diverse and thank goodness for that!

  10. Luapula Bize, clearly you are one of the many dull Zambians who refuse to accept the diversity of the world. Question, are you Zambians morals so weak that the mere coming of Somizi will instantly corrupt your hetero morals? The danger to your non existent christian morals is your own government who is raping you every day but guess what? you are used to poverty and the little you have.

    • It is Cristal clear judging by the comments that Zambians believe more in what they read in their bibles than their own thoughts. Grow up and understand that all these documents were written and published by people like you and i. Even the norms and taboos were created by people not by your so called god or gods.

  11. Zambia’s stance on homosexuality has been clear for some time. It may be a wrong or right stance, depending on who you talk to. But the idea that somebody went out of their way to invite somebody that would be denied entry into the country simply shows how daft the decision was. We all know that this would happen, why bother? We all know our government’s limitations and excesses – GRZ does not like brazen pillow-biters entering the country, so there. Deal.

    • @Lwando: (This is from internet).
      The religious affiliation of the Israeli population as of 2019 was 74.2% Jewish, 17.8% Muslim, 2.0% Christian, and 1.6% Druze, with the remaining 4.4% including faiths such as Samaritanism and Baha’iism, and irreligious people with no faith. Israel does not have a constitution.
      My Comment: These guys denied Jesus then and they are denying him now. It is the same Jews that robbied for the crucifixion of Jesus. THERE ARE ONLY 2% CHRSTIANS IN ISRAEL.
      As prophesied ” Messiah will be denied by his own.

  14. Elo you dull Zambians, when you travel to Europe, SA or USA, what do you see? Homosexuals having sex on the streets and raping heterosexuals? Do you see children being recruited? Do you see chaos anywhere? No, you see orderly societies that are a far cry from the zambians mediocrity you are so used to. You even get all excited to tour their beautiful countries. Does it even cross your mind why they keep advancing despite removing discriminatory laws? I guess all you come up with is, its the devil at work – thats all you know

  15. Development is realized when the full potential of everyone is unleashed. and that includes gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons. These are people like you and me – they did not just drop from the sky. They have families they come from. They have educational and technical skills but guess what? They would rather leave and go be useful elsewhere. The problem with you dull Zambians is that your understanding of homosexuality has been restricted to sex only. You think every gay man just wants to have sex with you. Do you yourself as a heterosexual man want to sleep with any female you see? gay men also have standards and do not get all excited just because you are a man. dont flatter yourselves.

    WE CANT BE BIASED, CHILDREN OF GOD CAN ERROR TOO AND IN THIS CASE, SOMIZI IS ERROR-ED IN CHOOSING A WRONG PATH AND AS SUCH HE CAN NOT BE ENCOURAGED TO BROADEN HIS CHURCH OF GAYSM IN ZAMBIA , MAY GOD PUNISH JAY JAY,LWANDO AND THEIR CLANS FOR ENCOURAGING THE DEVIL’S WORK.

  20. Well done Minister and the P.S Government and leadership must not condone this nonsense of Gays and Lesbians.Simply because there is corruption and Immorality in the country and indeed in the world does not mean we must allow homosexuality to take root in Zambia.It is amazing at how people express so much ignorance to think supporting such evils is being progressive.You cannot allow your neighbour’s child who steals in his parents home to come and steal from you simply because you have children who also steal.Gay and lesbianism must be stopped at all costs!

  21. Know your Bible before you start defending corruption.

    Romans 1

    26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters,…

  22. ……

    Romans 1 continued…. at the end of the verse it includes those that condone of these acts including homosexuality

    Romans 1

    …… boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

    @JAY-JAY AND LWANDO, GOD MUST CONDEMN YOU TO DEATH SO THAT HE RIDS SUPPOERTERS OF EVIL AND MESS OUR ZAMBIA.
    CORRUPTION IS WRONG AND IF PF IS PRACTICING IS, MUST BE CHARGED AND FOUND GUILTY, BUT THAT DOES NOT CONDONE THE ACCEPTANCE AND PROMOTION OF MORE EVIL(GAYSIM) OR WRONGS.

ARE MURDERERS, RAPIST,THIEVES NOT CREATED BY GOD, MUST WE ALSO ACCEPT AND WELCOME THEM???
    DONT FOLLOW STUPIDITY OF THE COUNTRIES YOU FIND YOURSELVES IN, BECAUSE THEY GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO FEED YOURSELF, ITS ALL HELL NOW, TO YOU THEY CAN DO NO WRONG, AND SOON IF THEY SAY EATING SHIIT IS HEALTH YOU WILL BE ADVOCATING FOR SHIIT TO BE SAVED IN ZAMBIA.

    • @Vuyo, no need to be loud. I have a right to my opinion just as you have a right to yours. I also notice that you did not notice the sarcasm when I mentioned everything is created by God, Christian Nation, Love thy brother (bs) etc. I am also fascinated by the way Zambians believe in this myth used by the colonialists to harness Africa. This developed country I presently live in leaves it to the individual to believe in what he wants to. Most of them do not believe and yet they are kind and do send aid to Zambia – a Christian nation where it should be heaven – need I repeat(everything is created by God, Christian Nation, Love thy brother (bs) etc). And yet everything functions. Why? Because everyone puts in a hard day’s work and they do not steal from their fellow citizens.

    Gayism insnt just un-Zambian it is immoral and evil and if you had and Zambian Values in you you would know its not just Christianity see gayism as stupidity, the Zambians as a whole deny your gayness.

    Zambia, has Zambian laws and anti-gayism is one of them(which i personally support fully).
