Kapiri Gay Lovers Convicted

The Kapiri Mposhi Magistrate Court on Friday convicted two men for homosexuality.

Zambia has resisted international pressure to lift its tough anti-gay laws.

The court found Stephen Sambo, 30, and Japhet Chataba, 38, guilty of performing unnatural acts having been arrested last August.

They were convicted on the testimony of a hotel employee who said she saw the pair having sex through a window. Prosecutors also presented videos and photographs of the men.

Offenders of same sex face jail sentences of up to 14 years.

      Excellent . Would be offenders or those doing it secretly should know that it is only one day . The female population in Zambia is twice that of males and you opt to have carnal knowledge with your fellow man against biblical teachings . Shame

      We pray for them so that after serving thier sentence , they will change.

  11. Whiteson

    Homosexuality is a noun which means: “sexual attraction to (or sexual relations with) persons of the same sex”
    Almost all, if not all commentators have come across or have seen men, you have also seen women holding hands in public because they love each other out of being attracted to each other, you have also seen men women prefer or choosing to sleep in the same bed, you ask them why, they will tell you we love each other and that’s because they are attracted to each other – homosexuality. commentators please don’t comment blindly.

    • Lloyd

      Right on point

      Chalisambilila Chi whiteson,english name, knowing homosexual as noun,my dear you’re one of them come out clear.we can take you to a rehabilitation centre to avoid u getting a 14years jail term.come out u sodomist.

  12. muzo

    • Whiteson

      ….. that’s exactly what I mean … blindly

      • Tall boy

        Whiteson are you not ashamed of yourself ? You seem to be so demonically possesed . Are you one of them or are you related to them ? All your coments are irrelevant and useless . Find something else to do unlike exposing your stupidity in public . Go to Hell…

        • Whiteson

          tall boy, ….”irrelevant and useless” ? how? are you able to explain how irrelevant and useless??

        • Whiteson

          tall boy, ….”irrelevant and useless” ? how? are you able to explain how irrelevant and useless?? If you want to be taken seriously, explain what you mean!

          • Doreen Kapemfu

            This should not be tolerated in our country and as Zambia being a Christian nation . I pray that if there are some others doing that,they also be exposed.

    • Pain

      Zambia is a Christian nation, therefore, heinous acts such as these performed by those two men are highly uncalled for.

  17. Benny

    Give them 50 years in prison fipuba fye ifyo

    A fairer option would be to give them the choice to emigrate to Malawi, where said practice is legal.

  20. Jms

  25. wenger

    teach them about females while they in jail

  26. Shaka

    It is unethical for human beings.

  27. Truth man

    It is the ignorance in man that is difficult to change.These people it is their nature, however it is an uphill battle for society to accept this.Even in Europe it took time for society to understand and accept that there are people who are like this. Just like the way albinos are regarded in certain communities. I remember being told that a long time ago even as recent as 1961 albino babies were killed at birth ,because it was thought they were a curse from God! It used to happen here in Zambia! I know certain tribes used to carry this practice and they called it their culture.Therefore it remains to be seen how the Zambians take up this matter which has been there , but was only hidden due to fear from” persecution ” like in the above case.

    • sim1

      My bro that’s totally different thing,here we saying about law.there is no law which banned someone to give birth to an albino,but to kill albinos pipo took law in their own hand,but their is law against the act of homosexuality here in zambia.remember zambia is not sodom and gomorah were homosexual was allowed till God judged.my be you’re from the house of Sodom.nali unfwa at uli wa mukula tree sana.

    Mmmmmnm pipo should repent bcZ that’s a sin….

    This what caused God to open the floodgates of heaven to come and wipe out sinul human race from the face of the earth during Noah’s time.

    • Whiteson

      Chris B, come to Earth come to reality there was no flood, no floodgates, nothing. just a myth.

  31. G-Bally

    Leave them alone,they know what they aiming at.

  34. Mercy banda

    Thy are foolish, the devil z using them how can thy make love wen thy ar o man. Teach them a very big lesson that’s crazy😣😣😣😬

  35. Concerned citizen

    Whiteson what do you mean that commentators shouldn’t comment blindly this is Zambia a Christian country where we don’t allow homosexuality.Infact it is in biblical. So if you don’t know what you are talking about then keep quiet.

  36. Andrew Monde

    Well done we won’t allow anyone to champion human rights on an expense of Christian values, they are few religions which support such acts that’s gud court.

  37. Bamboo S.T.A.G

    To my observation, Whiteson seems to be an atheist cause he has nothing but negative commental contributions to Zambia’s religious and cultural reservoir. Zambia is a Christian Nation and we refer people like you as heathens, so stick to your dirty ethnicity if you’re not a Zambia Mr. Dirty mind whiteson

  38. Peter luhangapeter@gmail.com

    Let them know that what they were doing was not good.give them a severe punishment.

  40. Easy Easy

    Mr Whiteson or whatever you are called ,is your definition of homosexuality going to purify that act?Naturally where is the place to insert organs?lam sure organs used are meant for something else!! Be real and focus on your wife and girlfriend if you are not married in the latter’s case.You are the ones who defile our daughters, stupid thoughts!

  41. Sebele

    Good for the nation. Acts fighting procreation are actually satanic. Congrats to the judges.

  42. Lloyd

  46. Nally

    I noticed something!
    Men are haywire… Undecided!
    They watch lesbian porn, they say it’s hot! When it comes to gay pipo the entire nation will rise…
    The world is changing… I am not homophobic (having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people) the heart wants what it wants I won’t be the one to judge… Yes it’s a sin but did any of you write the Bible? Are you not aware God has his own Way?
    so let him be the one to judge the sinful ones!!… They did not kill they just banged!😕
    Which is practically a part of nature

    Most of you claiming to be christian are being unchrustian by judging these people,let he who is without sin cast the first stone, some of you have done worse things,i would encourage you to focus your energies on being productive instead of just loosely making comments

    • Chrome

      Just because something is law doesnt make it equitable,wasnt there a time when it was law for black people to be jailed for walking into the wrong shop

  58. Chrome

    Analyze before making useless comments

  59. Kalawa

    They are suppose to be given a death sentence,don’t even keep the in prison

  60. Nally

    Most of u have sinned and are probably gay in the closet… So u choose to judge simply because it’s expected in society to sham such…
    Others here have sinned more than this petty crime… But who’s judging you?

    But then again, sodomy is a thing in jail. Its not really a punishment for them…. Homophobia should end, they are human who can only be judged by God.
