South Africa: MEC Dhlomo's Call to Distribute Condoms in Churches

press release

The IFPKZN caucus is horrified to hear of MEC Dhlomo's utterances on the distribution of condoms in churches.

We believe that the Church should be a place of fellowship, worship and prayer and should not be relegated to a house of promiscuity. The MEC has gone too far - he really fell off the moral radar. This is a total abomination and is deplorable.

We will do everything to mobilise all churches and ensure that this practice never sees the light of day. Any campaign to curb HIV/AIDS must ensure the mobilisation of people in communities through education and ownership of scientific knowledge.

We need to create an active citizenship so as to challenge and overcome poor political decisions like the distribution of condoms in churches! This must be challenged at all fronts. The church of God must be a house of prayer and not a house of promiscuity.
