“Buy or Use Sex Dolls and go to Jail”, Zambia Govt. Threatens citizens

The Zambia government in a bid to dissuade its citizens from patronizing sex doll manufacturers has threatened to hand them heavy jail terms if they do.
The government of the Southern African country, who began this fierce campaign in February, described relations with the dolls as “very unnatural.”
Nevertheless, reports have it that “No one sells them openly, no one admits to owning one, and no one has been arrested yet.’’
As a result of this action, sex dolls and related topics have dominated debates and conversations in the country that has been largely described as conservative.
 “Being a Christian nation, obviously we are anchored in Christian principles and one of the values is morality and ethics,” Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili , said.
Selling or using a sex doll is against Zambian law, she said, vowing to ensure they are not bought on the internet and imported.
“The use of sex dolls is definitely in contradiction to our natural heritage and our principles,” Sumaili added.
“The law actually forbids anybody to trade (in) and to use such objects — and so this is why we are saying for Zambians that this is a very unnatural thing.”
The minister said the ban was necessary after media reports emerged of sex dolls being imported into Zambia, apparently from Asia. Police are investigating, she added.
