Government to investigate homosexual claims against M’membe, deregister his party

The PF regime says it will launch investigations following claims that the newly formed Socialist Party led by Fred M’membe is linked to promotion of homosexuality.

Wynter Kabimba claimed on Tuesday that some of the party’s members who have broken away and formed the Socialist Party left as they differed on sexual orientation and adherence to Christian values.

Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo said iInvestigations will be launched to establish whether there are some elements of truth and if it is found, the necessary action will be taken by law enforcement agencies” .

He added that the action may also include deregistering the party.

According to him, the issue of homosexuality in Zambia was not only a moral issue but the country’s laws do not allow such practices.

Meanwhile, the Socialist Party has described the allegations as false, baseless and shameful.

Cosmas Musumali, the party’s general secretary, said he and others did not give any reasons when they left the Rainbow Party and that the reasons given by the former justice minister were not true, according to local media.

Same-sex relationships are illegal in Zambia, with those found guilty risking jail time of up to 14 years.

    Kapyongo, you have nothing to do. Even sata, was accused of promoting homo sexual . Are you scared of the socialist party? They are here to stay. Mwalachimona. Concentrate on reducing taxes,, create jobs, money in their pocket. Goldfreda Musumaile, has failed to cap the home sexual including the police has failed to catch those lesbians who were on face book. Kapyongo, you are just another idiot.

    And then what? This idiot also. What crime is in receiving that money? Why haven’t you launched investigations into Tasila’s sudden rise in wealth? The PF including yourself are stealing from innocent Zambians every single day. Why dont you investigate yourselves first? By the way how far did this same Kampyongo guy in education?
