A renowned motivational speaker and life coach has described the sex party involving over 40 pupils in Chingola as a very sad incident to both the society and the families of the pupils.
In an interview with the Lusaka Star,Mubita Nawa, said the emergence of such indecent activities among youths were a sign of low standards in terms of maturity and lack of focus.
Nawa said it was very easy to point fingers at the parents but there was only so much they could do.
“…it is the personal responsibility of the youths in deciding what they want to do, their focus in life and what their expectations in life are. Because one would find that most of the children that were caught could be coming from wholesome homes,” he said.
However, he noted that some parents could be to blame as well.
“Parents play a major role in a child’s upbringing, morality, welfare and psychological makeup. Today's peer pressure is more negative than that of the past and it may be because of today’s social groups, the psycho social counselling, spiritual counselling and the mentorship, these don’t only fall on the responsibility of the parents but the society at large,” Nawa said.
He added that indulging in such reckless activities was a danger to the children’s health in terms of contraction of sexual transmitted diseases and cutting their careers short.
He advised young people to do things they would be proud of in the future.
“Youths should desist from trying to please their fellow youths and should concentrate on pleasing God, their ambitions and their families. And their parents should not show soft love to their children but show tough love so that they may learn from their mistakes and not repeat such acts in the future,” said Nawa.
Recently, 42 pupils in Chingola were charged and released for allegedly taking part in a sex party on April 4th, 2014.
In a similar incident, 12 pupils were suspended from Chikankata Secondary School for indulging in sexual activities in August 2013.
