Chitimukulu Condemns Introduction Of Sexuality Education Programmes In Primary Schools

Chitimukulu, the paramount Chief of the Bemba speaking people in Northern province, has condemned the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programme in early grades of primary schools.

Speaking when he held talks with Religious Affairs minister Godfridah Sumaili at his palace in Mungwi, the traditional leader complained that Comprehensive Sexuality Education programme in schools is one factor defeating the fight against early pregnancies.

The Government has rolled out the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) across the country.

But the programme has been condemned in several places around the world for its graphic nature and for teaching content deemed too pornographic for children.

CSE is also criticized for exposing children to an inappropriate sexual debate which is against traditions and culture.

The programme is said to also encourage acceptance of different sexual orientations (gay sex and gay relationships).

In 2019, Zambia completed a pilot study and has began rolling out CSE in schools across the country, with support from United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

The African Union has, however, not adopted CSE and has said CSE cannot be a proposed solution to challenges related to early childhood, sexual abuse in marriages, and gender based violence.

    These are programs that that useless UN Secretary General and gay rights sympathizer Ban Ki Moon initiated. This nonsense must be stopped immediately. It is against the Zambian Constitution on gay rights.

    It used to take time for us who were born way way back that babies are conceived before they are born and all we knew was that they can only be bought from zinc.

    Chitimukulu May be right but however, when a child learns standards from parents, in most cases no amount of persuasion from peers & teachers can change things in that child taught by parents!!! It is wrong for schools to be setting the standard as truly, this must come from parents who hv the authority from God over children’s affairs. Whoever signed the agreement should hv argued the matter from this point of view. Most Children will be confused by this new education System. God serve us!!!

    So does it meant those who are gay went through CSE??

    We need to face reality. If we do not teach the kids they will get information in many places anyway. And the chances are that they will harm themselves because of not knowing.

    Personality I don’t like how I came to learn of issues to do with sexuality especially as it regarded my body physiology. There is need this is taught in schools at a reasonable early age. A well informed child is likely to make informed decisions than otherwise.

      I beg to differ. There is a right time to teach everything. We should not accept things just because they come with donor funding. Let’s uphold African values that are good.

    Having people with little or no morals in leadership it ends up as a ploy to access funds from UNFPA other looking at what is best for country and communities.

    Why can’t Government introduce lesson or topics that are inclined to design products or manufacturing. What is so special about children learning about sex. This is madness from our leaders

    Educated people say, “knowledge is power” But on sexuality at tender age,I think this knowledge is of no use. My personal analysis,when people use to be told lies like if you sleep with a man, your fingers would,sanity was there. Let’s stand together with chief chititimukulu and others condemning
