Pages from school books with explicit sexual material that were circulating on social media have been rejected by Zambia’s education ministry.
According to a statement, the ministry claims that the pages are “photoshopped and a misrepresentation” of the curriculum in Zambia. One of the bogus pages, which describes sex in graphic detail, is alleged to have originated in Tanzania and began spreading there in 2021, according to the report.
“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,” according to Douglas Syakalima, the education minister.
After concerns from teachers and religious groups, the government also changed the name of its Comprehensive Sexuality Education curriculum to Life Skills and Health Education Framework.
