By Bright Chikele:
A CLERGYMAN, Dr. Lackson Banda says it is sad that the demand for services that involve among others manhood, breasts and hip enlargement are on the rise.
According to Dr Banda, who is a pastor under the Bishop Godwin Musonda led Christ Family Ministries, the rise in the demand of such services is an indication of how dissatisfied society has become with the way God created them— something the clergyman felt was wrong.
Dr Banda urged Zambians to be proud of their appearance and avoid certain wrong products.
Dr Banda also explained that it is not necessary for people to compare themselves with others since every individual has his or her own uniqueness. He warned that some comparisons may lead to the damage of the body.
“At this moment of time, we have a lot of deceiving products. In whichever fashion God has designed the human body, I think we should be satisfied and proud. We need to appreciate the uniqueness and stop comparing yourselves to other women or men,” Dr. Banda explained.
And Dr Banda has urged the government to consider regulating the ‘body organ enlargement industry’ in the country.
He noted that it was sad that every Jim and Jack in the compounds was claiming to be an expert in organ enlargement. He lamented that some are using very dangerous products which are detrimental to the general health of their clients.
“The government under the ministry of health should set up a commission that will be able to regulate scientific, religious and cultural practices that are used for the enlargement of various body parts because they pose a lot of risks on people’s health,” he said.
“People are just coming in the country claiming to be doctors or prophets without any proper verification. You find that many people in our country are disappointed with these same products but they have nowhere to report their complaints to.”
Ministry of Health Public Relations Pauline Mbangweta when phoned for a comment on the matter asked to be contacted later next week for a detailed response.
