ZIMBABWE’S battle against Aids, which has so far claimed more than two million lives, received a major boost on Friday when more than 70 Apostolic and Zionist churches made a landmark resolution to abolish polygamy at the launch of an anti-HIV and Aids blueprint in the capital. Polygamy has been found to fuel the spread of HIV and Aids and is a deep-rooted practice in the sects. The 23-page policy document supports this landmark development with Scriptures from the Bible, and the abolition of polygamy will start with the leaders of the Apostolic and Zionist churches.
