Pages from school books with explicit sexual content that were circulating on social media have been disowned by Zambia’s education minister.
According to the BBC, the ministry claims that the pages of the school books are photoshopped and a misrepresentation of the programme in Zambia.
One of the sites, which describes sex in graphic detail, is said to have originated in Tanzania and began spreading there in 2021, according to the report.
According to Minister of Education Douglas Syakalima, “The books circulating on social media are not developed by ministry of education. The cover is correct but that page circulating is not from any of the Zambian books,”
Following complaints from teachers and religious leaders, the government also changed the name of its Comprehensive Sexuality Education curriculum to Life Skills and Health Education Framework.
