The Lusaka City Council (LCC) has summoned senior church officials at the newly built multi-million dollar Bread of Life Church in Lusaka’s Emmasdale area to appear before it, tomorrow.
This follows the death of a forty-year-old congregant after a ceiling board sliced half of his face following a heavy downpour in the area.
Council Public Relations Officer, Henry Kapata says the local authority has since launched investigations into the matter.
Mr. Kapata further disclosed that the local authority is yet to establish whether the church obtained a partial occupation certificate to use the unfinished building, as stipulated by the Public Health Act.
And Amos Lwabila, who has described the incident, as the work of the devil, expressed sadness at the development.
Mr. Lwabila, has described the late elder, Artone Nyirenda, who was Kitwe based, as a dedicated Christian.
Mr Nyirenda was badly injured by falling pieces of the church ceiling board after strong winds blew off parts of the newly built Church in Lusaka’s Emmasdale Township.
