Zimbabwe rejects polygamy

October 5 2005

The leaders of the Zimbabwean tribes supported the decision of the organization "and the Zionist Apostolic Church of Zimbabwe (ASTSZ) to prohibit polygamy.

"The ban on polygamy over time should reduce the number of HIV infections," - said Chief Fortune Charumbira, president of the Council of Chiefs of Zimbabwe. After all, every week in Zimbabwe from AIDS kills up to 2000 people.

Until recently ASTSZ bless polygamy, but in mid-September, decided to start a campaign for rejection of this tradition.

"I welcome the decision of the Church to abandon polygamy, because the Bible says that every man should have one wife, - said the pastor Singal from Emmanuel Pentecostal Assembly of Zimbabwe. - This should help combat the spread of AIDS, because if one man five wives, and one of them is infected, all are at risk of contracting, "according to Blagovest-info".
