“We would like to know why poor continent especially Africa is being forced to redefine marriage in the name of rights. They are creating rights which are dubious creating terms such as reproductive rights, sexual rights, terms which are vague and can mean anything,” ,”  Archbishop Mpundu wondered noted.

He further observed “If we want to redefine what marriage is, what family life is, we are going into oblivion. It is a recipe for disaster. If you want to destroy a clan, tribe or nation, start by destroying family.
