Finally, Section 157 applies to "any act of gross indecency" committed between males, "whether in public or in private", and classifies such acts as felonies punishable by imprisonment for five years.
The provision also extends to "attempts to procure the commission of any such act [of gross indecency]".
societal attitudes towards homosexuality heavily mirror these influences.
A 2010 survey revealed that only 2% of Zambians find homosexuality to be morally acceptable; nine points below the figure recorded in Uganda (11% acceptance).
We really hope we can help even if it is just an ear to listen or a bit of advice.
