A non-governmental organization (NGO) in Lilongwe has accused religious leaders of fueling the spread of the HIV pandemic.

Pastor-CollarThe NGO, Centre for Youth Development and Social Empowerment (CYDSE), which is working in Chief Chimutu’s area in the district has disclosed that the religious leaders advise church member to stop using condoms.

CYDSE Executive Director, Naphtale Chizongo said young people in the area do not access condoms since their religious leaders discourage them from using the rubbers, telling the youth that it is only Jesus who can protect them.

Chizongo also said his organisation has observed that other youth who were on Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) have stopped taking their drugs upon receiving advice from their church leaders.

In view of this, he said his NGO with support from the Southern African AIDS Trust (SAAT) is engaging both religious and traditional leaders by equipping them with knowledge on their role in the fight against HIV.

According to Chizongo, traditional leaders are also being taken on board as there are some cultural practices taking place in the area which are contributing to further spread of HIV.

He cited traditional dances such as gule wamkulu which are sometimes performed during the night as some of the cultural practices fueling the spread of HIV.

He said: “From the interface meetings we have been conducting, the leaders now seem to understand what role they can play in the fight.”

  1. This guy is full of it. The answer is, stop abusing sex. Sex creates babies. Its Cosmic purpose is creating new humans. It has to be fun, or we would go extinct. Children need parents who are committed to each other for the long haul. The Christian way is the way of Nature. Recreational sex is wrong, and there will always be long-range negative consequences for those who practice it. HIV/AIDS is mostly caused because people use sex in ways God forbids. God forbids it because it’s destructive. The Bible says God sends plagues onto the disobedient. Even non-believers should see the link there. We can’t break the laws of Nature. We only break ourselves on those laws. So, practice abstinence until you get married. Now…excuse me while I get me get my head down, to avoid the stones that always fly from the Land of Love and Tolerance.
