The Church urged to address rising cases of sodomy


A Ndola Based psychologist Hope Namonje says it is regrettable that sodomy is slowly becoming a normal trend but needs to addressed promptly.

Ms. Namonje says this vice needs concerted efforts from all stakeholders especially parents and guardians if men and young boys especially are to be protected.

Advising parents and guardians to always raise alarm whenever they are touched inappropriately, Ms Namonje added that minors need counseling to come to terms with what has happened to avoid emotional damage.

ZANIS reports that the psychologist said this in an interview adding that sodomy often makes a child to contemplate or commit suicide.

“It is extremely important for parents to confront such abuse at the earliest. Often, we have seen that the victims find it difficult to maintain healthy relationships when they grow up , “ she said.

She has encouraged children to be free to talk to their parents about the happenings in their school without any fear or hesitation,

”As a Psychologist l believe that due diligence, sensitivity and a friendly approach towards children is needed to bring such instances in the open.

“ Often children are not aware of the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ touch and this ignorance help the perpetrators to abuse them, “ she reasoned..

And Ndola Bethel Church pastor Beauty Mwamba has advised all Christians to stand against sodomy saying it is ungodly .

Pastor Mwamba has called on families to remember their children in prayer and give them sound teachings and counsel against acts of sodomy.

She said parents and guardians should get to know their children’s friends and allow them to play with their age mates to avoid such acts destroying their future.

” Sensitive approach towards children is needed so that a victim can approach their parents or school authorities at the earliest, “she said.

In Zambia, according to Section 132 and 138 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia, rape and defilement which carry life sentences do not include a man or male child respectively.

For a male above the age of 14 according to section 155(a), the offence is having carnal knowledge of a person against the order of nature which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years. For a male child below the age of 14, according to section 157, the offence is indecent assault which carries a maximum sentence of 7 years.

The law in it’s current form is too casual with the cases of sodomy and needs amendment. It is regrettable that the law cannot protect a male victims when the effects of Post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD), acquiring sexually transmitted infections such as HIV/AIDS, mortality from injuries, increased risk of suicide, depression, chronic pain, psychosomatic disorders, anal injuries and emotional pain are just as severe in males as in females.

On this score, David Chishimba, Association of Unemployed Youths president and Youth Activist has called for strengthening of law of incidences of sodomy are to be halted completely.


  1. It is people like Saulosi from the US where he is sodomised in the back of his uber who bring such dirty sinful vices to back zambia………

    • @ Spaka
      I drive UBER for a living and right now am in my hotel room in New York will be heading back to DC at 8am….am not Gay like you and Tarino Orange….just admit the 1.3 billion will do more harm than good for mother Zambia……am told Gay agenda was on top of the IMF loan conditions but they used the wording “human rights” so as to fool Zambians……watoloka imisu wanyanta pamafi

  2. And you thought Lungu failed to get $1.3 billion kaloba…..big NO….Lungu didn’t agree with IMF sick conditions….now deal with gay and tougher times for ordinary Zambians…..IMF is an evil empire….”structuring”….my asssss…..HH and Musokotwane quietly chewing 1.3 billion

  3. The church weren’t consulted when fake NGOs supported the introduction of comprehensive sex education in primary schools. Children are being taught in local languages about the anatomy of human-beings. Those body parts and their function are mentioned in local languages. What we’re witnessing is what Mwine Lubemba predicted when he called GRZ to revisit this policy. Now we have registered adolescent pregnancies and other vices. Let’s face the truth. We can’t point to others when we know what we have done. This will take time to heal, if at all it does. Otherwise we’ll have to live with it like we have done with other vices

  4. The LGBTQ are a very powerful group world wide. They are very calculative and methodic in their approach when the want enter a particular community. They are now here in Zambia and their presence is being seen. The July thing was one of their methodical way of accessing the Zambian community. These sodomy things we are seeing is a sign that the lesbians and gays are now with us. What a shame!!

    • The Church must take a leading role in preaching to their members and lobbying GRZ to be against homosexual practices even if some members and clegy have fallen for this open sewer.

  5. Democracy comes at a price.
    US diplomat, Daniel Foote, got a pushback in 2019. Why did Zambia expel him? Hemophilia.

    He protested his sacking:
    Zambia “wants foreign diplomats to be compliant, with open pocketbooks and closed mouths?.”

    The pocket book may be:
    1. IMF loan to Zambia $1.3bn for balance of payments and debt restructring deals.
    2. European Union gives Zambia grant of €30m for Kariba dam repair works.

    The unclosed mouths can be support for:
    1. Human (GAY) Rights
    2. Freedom of Speech

  6. Well…………..well………..

    If you don’t want conditions tied to the foringe aid and funding zambia needs…….

    Stop thinking of stealing 24/7………..

    Start sacrifices of hard work and sweat to build the country ………..

    Instead , you want to be politicking or thinking of stealing and free money 24/7…………..

  7. The fact is Lound and clear………..

    Those mostly complaining of IMF deal being tied to being soft on gay rights…….

    Are mostly PF………..

    They supported the bankrupting of zambia with unsustainable borrowing by lungu………..
