President Sata condemns terror attack on Nigeria

President Sata

President Michael Sata has condemned the recent terrorist attack that killed 39 people near the Nigerian Capital Abuja on Christmas day.

In a letter to his Nigerian counterpart, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Sata expressed deep sorrow at the untimely demise of people in a terrorist bomb attack.

The President said his government condemns the outrageous and cowardly attacks on the Catholic Church by the radical Muslim sect, Boko Haram which he said is responsible for at least 491 killings this year alone.

This is according to a press statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations George Chellah.

“On behalf of the people of the Republic of Zambia and, indeed on my own behalf, I extend our heartfelt condolences to you, the bereaved families and those injured in the explosion,” the President said.

He assured President Jonathan that Zambia shares the burden of grief and pain with Nigeria and the bereaved families in particular.

‘It is our hope that the Almighty God will give these families comfort and guidance during this period,” Mr. Sata said.

    The killings in Nigeria of christians during the christmas day by an Islamic terrorist group should alert Zambia on their stand as a country whose chritian values need no compromising. Islamic killings account for 3/4 of deaths in the world today and the peace in Zambia requires strong resolve in dealing with some religious groups. Islam is slowly targeting the vulnerable, the poor and simple people by giving alms to them with a view of converting them. They have Islamic sghools in Lusaka Ndola and Lundazi in Eastern province. Government need to scruitnise these schools. Some Madrasa schools exist in Lusaka along great east road. Madrasas are Islamic schools where radical Islam is taught and a breeding ground for Alqua’ida. Zambia lets watch out.

    This the first good ‘foreign policy’ type statement issued by MCS. No controversy here and all in keeping with Christmas cheer. Keep it up.

    I was worried he has ended up bungling it and saying the opposite. Nice one Sata, continue sticking to the script mwandi, before you end up insulting the US.

    Such killing is not acceptable. This, however,should not be used to de-grade all muslims. Every religion or secular movement has senseless as well as sensible people. The kind of hate exhibited by XXI, #6; is the same fundamentalist intolerance that breeds this sort of madness. I am neither christian nor muslim. Infact, I am atheist. But, in all fairness, I have good christian friends and good muslim friends, and I know christian criminals and muslim criminals as well as atheist criminals. I dont think it would be fair to blame every christian for 400 years of slavery and colonialism, which is as evil as Islamic wars of conquest and domination, or to blame every christian for the Mongu killings for example. Those guns were fired by christian cops on innocent fellow countrymen.

    For those who have not had time to study the facts, Al Qaeda and the Mujahideen were created by the christian United States to fight the presence of the Russians in Afghanistan. So, in reality Al Qaeda was created by christians. The name Al Qaeda was first used for a CIA database. At the top christian and muslim world leaders work together to create this confusion. It is we at the bottom who end up hating and killing each other. When I point out crimes carried out by christians, I insist that I do not condemn the religion or all its members, and likewise I treat Islam with the same fairness. But, this senseless killing of people is to be totally condemned.

    Honestly, there is nothing heroic about killing innocents. God be with the grieving.

    Satan dictates what goes on in this world, 1 John 5 verse 19. Both false christianity and other religions are under tight control of the evil one. It is no surprise therefore that the world is filled with violence perpetrated by so called “men and women of god”.
