Lusaka, Zambia, 5th March 2018 – It has come to our attention that Liberal parties, including United Party for National Development (UPND), met in Ghana to adopt a common constitution that will support and promote gay rights in Africa. The UPND delegation included their Chairman for international relations Mulondwe Muzungu and Party spokesperson Charles Kakoma.
UPND, with its partners appended their signatures to adopt the rights of homosexuals, which includes lesbians, gay, bisexual, non-binary and intersex relations whom they classified as marginalized.
The same gathering was used to discredit Zambia’s image and that of the Patriotic Front Government as covered in some sections of the media. We wish to advise the Africa Liberal Network (ALN) that Patriotic Front shall not be lectured to by a ‘club’ with liberal values and agendas that at variance with our core values and culture as Zambians. Democratic principles are agreed and ascribed to in our membership to the highest intergovernmental and multilateral bodies and treaties. We refuse to entertain ‘imagined and UPND spun ‘abuses’ in their quest to tarnish the nations reputation in a blatant power grab with their ‘liberal partners’ who promote among many other affronts to our culture, rights of lesbians, gay, bisexual, non-binary and intersex relations.
