Churches against condom distribution in prisons


Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) has opposed the move to distribute condoms in prisons across the country saying it will encourage homosexuality.

The development follows calls by Malawi Interfaith AIDS Association (MIAA) to have condoms being distributed to prisoners to reduce the spread of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) among inmates.

Rev. Kawalala: It will encourage homosexuality

MIAA Executive Director Robert Ngayaiye expressed optimism that condoms will protect inmates from diseases that are transmitted through sex.

But EAM through its National Chairperson Zacc Kawalala has argued that the move is to promote homosexuality which is forbidden under Malawi laws.

“The first question to ask is, condoms for what? You cannot promote distribution of condoms this means you are also promoting homosexuality,” observed Kawalala.

Malawian laws prohibit gay sex though people are rarely prosecuted for the act.



  1. Hahaha…..homo mpaka Ku user Condom?…..the issue is to find the way of ending this practice in prison not by distributing condoms thus not aSolution Coz as far as iknow homesexuallity is much danger than the normal sex,so I agree with the Church in against this move

  2. I support the exercise of distributing condoms in prisons. The govt and all human rights organisations know that same sex does happen in our prisons. And HIV/AIDS is rampant in prisons. Prisoners have all their rights intact with them. Besides, they have right to life. And therefore they cannot be left to die of HIV/AIDS as if there are no interventions. Preventive measures are meant for them as well. Pressure on medical services can be normalized if prisoners are given condoms to use in prisons when doing illegal same sex activities. So I strongly support the idea of distributing condoms to prisoners.

  3. My say on da issue is dat whether they distribute the condoms or nt …….prisoners will still indulge in the malpractice so i’d rather we jst stayed out of this as christians…..honestly…….!!!!

  4. Vuto ndiloti ampingo mukungotsutsa pomwe simukuyamba mwaunikira unve omwe uli kundende amuna okhaokha kunyengana or ufule palibe okuteteza nde chomwe mukutsutsa ndi chani mukufuna akundendewo azipatsana Matenda ndibwino agawe makondomuwo vg uto la. Dziko lapansili lachuluka uve malo moti mulandu oba mbatata muwugamule mukugowasiya anthu kundende thoooooooooo

  5. Sorry kwa omangidwa osalakwa,but what I know is that all prisoners have no right to have condom or somebody 4 sexual intercouse, if u want u should obey the law b4 any case’ Maufulu ena mudzala nawo misbehaviour

  6. Spiritual understanding is what we are lacking as Christians but to a Christian who is aware of this time we are living in will never take part in such initiative, another problem is this initiative will increase not only homosexuality but also immorality a thing that the bible does not want, and I believe that the ones distributing are the agents of devil

  7. According to the word of God ,Homosexuality is a symbol of a cursed person by God himself. Those people who are prison what the need is the Word of God, NOT CONDOMS FOR WHAT USE .Romans 1:24-32 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
    Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

  8. Thus bad reaction from E.A.M because prisonaz are prone to diseases that spread though sexual intercourse.Anthu oipa inu osafunira amzanu zabwino coz ma prisonaz are the same as anybody else & they have the right to enjoy all human rights

  9. Homosexualiy is very high in prisons so they need to be protected please azibusa don’t misled the people thats why you pastors a lot of you are dying with AIDS

  10. The problem is; churches have no standard interpretation of their scriptures and whoever comes with what trash, as long as he/she has money, the church follows the what. Now this is about condom distribution in prison which implies the church’s acceptance of homosexuality just bcoz the issue was brought by health rights activists, and without scrutiny, the church has accepted homosexuality by taking part in the distribution of condoms. That’s why I usually say; there is no God, religion is just a hoax just to make people united for the benefit of the bad at its own time
