ZAMBIAN President, Edgar Lungu has said there is a ploy by western countries to fix countries that are against homosexuality.
President Lungu said that the West has identified 69 countries world-wide which they will fix for being against the practice of homosexuality.
He has disclosed that Zambians should not be surprised when the country is fixed by the West, adding that nothing will change his stance on homosexuality because Zambians are Christians.
President Lungu was speaking when he met Northwestern Province Pastors fellowship in Solwezi this Sunday.
He told the pastors that his advisors told him not to talk about it publicly, but that the matter kept on coming up on his mind. And pastors’ fellowship chairperson Miselo Musonda said the clergy want a God-fearing man in State House.
Reverend Musonda said President Lungu has demonstrated that he is God-fearing.
He wondered why some political parties have not spoken publicly to condemn homosexuality.
President Lungu’s sentiments are as a result of Daniel Foote, America’s ambassador to Zambia who has been protesting against the 15 year prison sentence which was handed over to a gay couple a few weeks ago by the country’s High Court.
Last week President Lungu announced that Zambia had written to the American government to withdraw its ambassador.
