Gay and lesbianism is criminal under the laws of Zambia – Vice President
Vice President GEORGE KUNDA says Zambian laws do NOT allow the practice of homosexuality and lesbianism.
Mr KUNDA told Parliament on Friday that such acts are considered criminal, under the laws of Zambia.
Mr. KUNDA, who is also Justice Minister, says the practice is criminal and can attract a minimum jail sentence of 14 years.
He says government will NOT condone unnatural practices in the country as Zambia is a Christian nation.
The Vice President says Zambian laws are tailored by the Christian values the country practices.
Mr. KUNDA says it is therefore unfortunate that PF leader Michael Sata wants to champion these illegal practices.
The Vice President was responding to CHASEFU Member of Parliament, CHIFUMU BANDA, who wanted to know if the Zambian Law provides for the practice of homosexuality.
