“The way they [LGBTQ people] relate—the way they associate and express themselves—should not be agenda for others to block them, criminalise them and let them be cocooned somewhere. They are people of God, children of God, and God has given us all things in equity. If it is life, it is equal to everybody. If it is salvation, he gave it to us all.”

Nzilani also said she waited for her mother to pass away before coming out, as she didn’t want to “embarrass” her. She also hailed her daughter for supporting her adding that they prayed together when they were faced with difficulties and hardships together. She said, “I thank God for my daughter who I love so much… She was like: ‘I’m behind you mum, because I love you.
