Sexual Barter System Gains Momentum in Eastern Province

Rural News Sexual Barter System Gains Momentum in Eastern Province

Despite its ban in 2019, a traditional practice known as Chidyelano has continued during mobile markets locally known as Kabwandile , in Eastern Province.

Paramount chief Kalonga Gawa Undi of the Chewa speaking people of Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique recently banned the practice to curb the spread of Sexually Transmitted Diseases(STDs) in his chiefdom.

These mobile markets conducted in Eastern Province consequently attract foreign nationals from Malawi and Mozambique.

Chidyelano is traditional practice which involves married men or women exchanging their partners for sexual pleasure.

Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Chipata district traditional affairs assistant officer Cecilia Tembo says the traditional practice is still being practice in mobile markets locally known as Kabwandile in Chipata district and beyond.

Speaking during a presentation during the Zambia National Men’s Network for Gender and Development ( ZNMNGD ) media breakfast meeting held today at Eastern Comfort Lodge in Chipata, Mrs Tembo said the traditional practice is being practice in a different version in markets.

“We hoping that the coming of Gender Activist in communities Chidyelano will completely be discharged, “she said.

Mrs Tembo said traders operating in mobile markets have reverted to the traditional practice by having sexual intercourse with married men as a mode of payment after selling goods .

Under the this practice, traders make arrangements for sex at the end of business transaction among themselves regardless of their marital status in different places.

She is however optimistic that the practice can be discouraged in trading places and has commended traditional leaders in region for championing the fight against GBV .

Mrs Tembo cited chief Madzimawe as one of the Ngoni chiefs being among the many active traditional leaders fighting GBV cases in the region.

  5. ONE MINUTE THIS K-Z SAYS IF YOUR GIRL FRIENDS ARE MISSING YOU KNOW WHERE THEY ARE
    THE NEXT HE SAYS HE CANT PART TAKE
    DOES HE REMEMBER WHAT HE IS DRIBBLING ABOUT

  6. This is not new, this used to happen during Sodom and Gomorrah but during Sodom and Gomorrah, they took it a step further because parents used to allow their daughters to participate. No wonder, God destroyed it.

  7. Chidyelano, a traditional practice of exchanging wives and husbands for sexual pleasure during mobile markets locally known as Kabwandile. When was it tradition and by which ethnic group?
    That is practiced nowhere in Eastern Province. Ba LT you want to tarnish our province for nothing. Stop creating tradition out of suspicions

  8. Ba Lt do you know what is tradition? You are labeling this strange practice a tradition to justify it? Lets ask an academic. Parkie Mbodzi tell us.

They wd evn say prostitution is illegal bt prostitutes evrwhere..so much adultery in luska is zat not chijelano..hw many govt officers hv bn caught with maried women.

  10. There is nothing wrong with this practice, if well organized it could be a tourist attraction. In Gambia, West Africa there is sex tourism. This can generate some income

  11. I think it’s a great idea! But why only in Eastern Province? Why are they keeping the good things in life to themselves? Kikikiki

  12. It’s not only in Eastern Province, I am made to believe. This has been there for a long time, especially in fishing camps around the country.

  13. Tikki you are a very dull f00I. When your wives come to my parties who said I eat them? My f00Iish friends service them. I am happily married, and can never do that to my Gina

  14. Hey UK based troll KZ, I guess your Gina is blind otherwise she would have chosen a real man. And no other women would go for such a selfish corrupt traitor like you! These women have self-respect!

  15. Where people choose to insert their shaft or what they allow to enter their cave is entirely their business.

    This tradition has been practised for centuries.

    Let them enjoy.

  16. Ati my f00Iish friends service them. Haha is this the same Kaizer Zulu with a memory of a flee who’s girlfriends Lulu Sonita Zulu committed suicide in 2016 after he beat her up …

  17. Yaba! Tasewana bane. Who told LT about this kansi? Ni nkhani yaku kati iyi bane! Mind your own businesses ndipo! Ala! You Bembas we will reveal what you do with monkeys na ise kansi!

  18. ZAMBIA HAS MANY TRADITIONAL CEREMONIES BUT THIS CHIDYELANO TRADITIONAL CEREMONY WHICH TAKES PLACE SEVERAL TIMES IN A YEAR IS UNKNOWN TO MANY ZAMBIANS. CHAIZER MUST EXPLAIN WHAT IT IS AND ITS CONTRIBUTION TO TOURISM TO THE DIASPORA.
