Chief Chimese of the Ushi people of Mansa district says it is Antichristian and taboo in the Zambian culture for someone to advocate and initiate laws that recognise homosexuality.
“From the time of our ancestors through to our generation, we have never come across a man marrying another man or woman marrying another woman. It is not in line with God’s plan and this is disobedience and insolence to God, who created man and woman to reproduce and fulfil his plan, those plans should be stopped.”
“It is a sin and let it be maintained wherever the idea is coming from and not in Zambia. As Chief Chimese, I refuse to support such people because they are cursed to support such unheard-of ideas,” he said.
