A Lusaka based evangelist says Zambian women are increasingly using their menstruation cycle or commonly referred to as ‘periods’ as an excuse to deny husbands their conjugal rights.
Commenting on revelations that Kanene had allegedly battered his wife over sex, Evangelical Youth Alliance International (EYAI) Executive Director Rev. Moses Lungu says women should be submissive to their husbands as the bible instructs and should not provoke their husbands with what he called ‘funny excuses’ such as being on their monthly periods whenever their husbands wanted sex.
He further stated that beating a wife was wrong and should be condemned but wondered why people were quick to blame Kanene when they have not taken time to listen to both sides of the story.
“As much as beating a woman or a wife in particular is wrong and is condemned, we should not be quiet on the provocative nature of women who use sex as weapon. We should equally condemn the women for having denied the musician sex which is his right as a husband.” he said
Lungu shot to national attention last year at the height of a protracted power struggle in the Patriotic Front when he sparked a racial debate after telling then Acting President Dr. Guy Scott to return back to his country of origin because Zambia could not be ruled by a ‘white man’.
The EYAI Executive Director took to the media days after Kanene was released and defended him saying the musician had reformed and deserved a second chance.
