African Evangelistic Enterprise Rwanda (AEE) called upon Christians in Umubuga cell, Ruramira village in Kayonza district to use condoms as a way of fighting against new HIV/AIDS infections.
The call was made on June 10th 2014 during the event to sensitise residents to contribute for mutual health insurance (mutuelle) and to protect themselves against HIV/Aids in Ruramira sector in Kayonza district.
“First of all, we urge people to accept God as their saviour. But to those who do not accept him are advised to use condoms and save their lives,” said Wilson Kabagambe, AEE coordinator in Rwamagana and Kayonza districts.
Christians are taught that premarital sex is a sin and therefore abstinence is the way to go. However, some give in to the temptation and have unprotected sex in fear of being seen buying condoms when they are Christians.
“We live in the world of sin where Christians are tempted like others. Whoever fails to abstain can get condoms from community health workers than having unprotected sex,” Anastase Ndayambaje, a resident.
