No Gay Rights' Echos State - Minister

Zambia reiterates its position not to recognise gay rights, saying that ‘gaysm’ runs counter to the country’s culture and is an affront to the Constitution

Zambia has reiterated its position not to recognise gay rights, saying that ‘gaysm’ runs counter to the country’s culture and is an affront to the Constitution which recognises the country as a Christian Nation.

The country’s foreign affairs deputy minister, Gabriel Namulambe, who also urged foreign missions accredited to Zambia to respect the views of the country about gay rights, says the country will abide by Christian values.

"I want to make it very clear here that as Government, we have the Constitution to protect and in the preamble of our Constitution, Zambia is a Christian Nation and as such we live by the Christian values and we will not be able to recognise gay rights," he explained.
