Chikondi Foundation President Bishop, John Mambo, has urged Zambians to avoid partisan politics in order to answer to the various challenges that the country is faced with.

Bishop Mambo said in an interview in Lusaka today that the nation should remain united and focused in implementing programmes that would help overcome negative effects of the current global economic recession.

Bishop Mambo, who is also Church of God former Regional Overseer, said the people concentrate on issues that would significantly contribute to efforts of fostering economic development in the country.

“Partisan politics should be avoided at all costs if the global economic crunch is to be effectively and meaningfully addressed in this country,” Bishop Mambo said.

He also urged government to put in place stringent measures that would add value to the effective implementation of existing development policies.

He said the country is lagging behind in development due to alleged failure by past administrations to effectively implement development programmes.

Meanwhile, Bishop Mambo has called on government to implement the Irrigation Fund Facility with a view to enhancing development in the country’s agriculture sector.

He said the effective implementation of the Irrigation Fund Facility, which was launched in 2007, will enable the vulnerable but viable farmers contribute effectively to national food security.

Bishop Mambo stated that Irrigation Fund Facility could also help address the challenges associated with the global economic recession as farmers will be growing enough food for export and local consumption.

Bishop Mambo, who is also a livestock farmer, has since urged other farmers in the country to embark on crop diversification to help enhance food security both at household and national levels.

  1. The church is at it again. Just tell us who you are campaigning for, maybe that way we will understand your language.

  2. I have noticed that some clergymen just comment on poltical issues when things are calm. But when push comes to shove, Bishop Mambo will be nowhere to be seen or heard.

  3. Mambo has some good points. Developing the country should be a collective duty by all citizens.

  4. Good that “Bishop Mambo, who is also a livestock farmer, has since urged other farmers in the country to embark on crop diversification to help enhance food security both at household and national levels” is speaking from experience. On ““Partisan politics should be avoided at all costs if the global economic crunch is to be effectively and meaningfully addressed in this country,” Bishop Mambo said“, let us not misuse the word Global Economic Crunch for it appears to be abused in Zambia and by Zambian people especially government officials as compared to any other nation in the whole word.

    If we as Zambians are not careful we will become a laughing stock of this world as a people who are slow to adapt to things. Look at the US Citizens, they have now moved on after Pr…

  6. Partisan Politics. What does the good bishop mean? People should say waht they mean so we can understand them. Partisan politics is what it is all about. Unless he means nonpartisan politics, which again would be an oxymoron. That is why you have independent nonpartisan groups that try to find a consensus among the various political parties.
