Chief Chitimukulu Condemns the Introduction of Sexuality Education Programmes in Early Grades of Primary Schools

General News Chief Chitimukulu Condemns the Introduction of Sexuality Education Programmes in Early...

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people in Kasama District, Northern province has condemned the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education(CSE) programme in early grades of primary schools across the country.

The traditional leader has lamented that the Comprehensive Sexuality Education programme in schools is one factor defeating the fight against early pregnancies.

He said this when he held talks with Religious Affairs and National Guidance Minister Reverend Godfridah Sumaili at his palace at Chitimukulu in Mungwi District.

Government has rolled out the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education(CSE) across the country.

CSE has been condemned in many places around the world for its graphic nature and for teaching content deemed too pornographic for children.

CSE is also criticized for exposing children to an inappropriate sexual debate which is against traditions and culture.

CSE also encourages acceptance of different sexual orientations(gay sex and gay relationships).

Zambia completed a pilot study in 2019 and has began to roll out CSE in schools across the country.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) which is the promoter of the programme in Zambia says Comprehensive sexuality education enables children and young people to protect their health, well-being and dignity.

The African Union has NOT adopted CSE and has said CSE cannot be a proposed solution to challenges related to early childhood, sexual abuse marriages, and gender based violence.

Critics and campaigners against CSE contend that its an aggressive gay programme and promotes promiscuity by encouraging sexual freedom despite the traditions and culture of the continent.

The programme encourages acceptance of homosexuality in Africa

  1. I can’t believe that Rev. Sumaili’s PF cabinet approved Mabumba’s jerking curriculum? That’s your PF chitimukulu.

  4. I totally agree with the Chief. People you should realize that the West and Europeans are out there to destroy Africa using their multi national Organizations. We need to fight hard. One thing though is that I don’t really know what work this Minister does ever since her appointment. I only see her chasing magician pastors out of the country. Now this is real work.

  6. I 100% agree with the Senior Chief. We don’t need this trash; we are a Christian nation and we cannot exchange our morals for money. We have a duty to protect the future generation – this curriculum is from the pit of hell. There is time for everything and our children have a lot of things they can be taught on but not Sex, abortion, LGBT, Transgender. Rev. Sumaili and your team should have advised the Gov’t accordingly. It is a disgrace to even be doing some pilot project, in the first place.
    Psalm 33:11-12. God bless Zambia!

  7. Zambia as a Christian nation should speak up against this, and have it pulled now. Who is the dull minister of education that allowed this?

  8. Let him speak only for his Bembas, because in this era of AIDS we live in I want my children taught about sexuality not just to prevent unplanned pregnancies but also avoiding contracting AIDS! These Bembas, they’ve fu.cked up Zambia economically through thieving & now want us all to die of AIDS!

  9. The chief is absolutely right. The colonial education system did enough damage already, now this CSE is another attack on our culture and social norms. Africans have indigenous methods of teaching sexuality to their children, why must we adopt some alien programmes brought to us by the UN? We must be bold enough to come up with our own educational concepts.

  10. Only South Africa teaches this sexual education in Africa and you can all see what has happened to that country. It’s imperialism’s preferred place for experimenting with Western vices. The blacks are swallowing all western sh!t from junk food to homosexuality in the hope they will be like their oppressors, the boers.
    To go to university in South Africa you have to pass Afrikaans. I’m very sure they will soon add sex education as a compulsory subject

  11. What I feared has finally come to Zambia, the so called Christian Country. Children in Zambia now will be like children in the western countries who become pregnant at very early ages and without proper knowledge of parenthood.

    In this day and age for under developed countries such as Zambia one would have expected that this time to introduce a subject like PRODUCT DESIGN as early as primary school to secondary school level. This would have started developing young Zambian product designers. This subject would have helped the country to industrialise quickly.

    Better still, a TOURISM subject would have been design and tought from primary to university in order to develop and strengthen local tourism.

    Look, we have been left with coloniser-designed education system to make us…

  12. …Look, we have been left with coloniser-designed education system to make us f00ls and up to this time we are still with coloniser-developed sylabuses. Instead of adding more imperialistic and good for nothing subjects such as the one in topic, why not redesign academic syllabuses which will help us industrialise quickly?

  13. Wht I disagree with is the false idea that we should reject same sex marriage because we’re a Christian nation. Even before Christianity Africans used to frown upon homosexuality, as did the Europeans themselves.

  14. Whoever approved such a curriculum has no brain. The PF Government is full of brainless Ministers and Presidential Advisors

  15. That CSE syllabus is a very dangerous one for children. It is opening up and corrupting their innocent minds with information they do not need at that age.
    Why do we like copying anything from the West?
    Stop this Comprehensive Sex Education nonsense NOW!

  16. Our Ministers go to these international Conferences and sign things whose impact they don’t even understand. Do they even know that CSE has a whole section on sexual arousal which states that sexual arousal is healthy whether hetero or homosexual? Maybe they where just interested in the allowances.
    The problem the is the amount of influence that special interest groups/NGOs have because of the money they provide to UN system. They basically design this kind of trash and our leaders go and sign these things without any real discussion back home.

  17. Europeans used to frown upon homosexuality until they went astray. Now they even accept so-called sex exchange where some people purpot to change their birth gender. Still there are some who want to go back to their birth gender after a sex exchange. It’s that ridiculous. If there’s one thing on which I agree with Donald Trump, it’s his attitude towards homosexuals.

  18. What people must understand is that this world is controlled by Satan the Devil Matthew 4 vs 8. He owns the planet, at least temporarily, but he is in charge. The time is just around the corner when he will take total control of all human affairs and any one who does not abide by Satanic principles will be killed dead. There is no such thing as a Christian nation. This world is governed by demons. Eventually Zambia will succumb to the dictates of the Devil and will embrace GAYISM wholeheartedly. Already Zambia is governed by a satanic PF party!!

  19. THE CHILDREN OF TODAY ARE VERY MUCH DIFFERENT FROM THE CHILDREN OF YESTERYEAR IN TERMS OF EXPOSURE, WHAT EVER YOU HIDE FROM THEM IS ALREADY AVAILABLE AND ACCESSIBLE TO THEM THROUGH THE VARIOUS GADGETS THAT ARE AVAILABLE SO THE EARLIER YOU TEACH THEM ABOUT THE DOES AND DON’T AND FALLOUT’S OF WHAT IS ALREADY AVAILABLE TO THEM , THE BETTER.

  20. When a child learns standards from parents, in most cases no amount of persuasion from peers & teachers can change things in that child taught by parents!!! It is wrong for schools to be setting the standard as truly, this must come from parents who hv the authority from God over children’s affairs. Whoever signed the agreement should hv argued the matter from this point of view. Most Children will be confused by this new education System. God serve us!!!
