Archbishop Ignatius Chama

President Michael Sata has congratulated the President of the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) Ignatius Chama for being elected as Archbishop of Kasama by Pope Benedict XVI.

President Sata has described Archbishop Chama’s elevation by the Pope as a special calling that carried a huge responsibility of shepherding and providing leadership to the Catholic faithful in the Diocese and the country as a whole.

According to a statement made available to ZANIS by his Special Assistance for Press and Public Relations George Chellah, the President stated that by elevating Archbishop Chama, the Pope has shown confidence and faith in clergyman’s abilities to provide spiritual leadership to the Catholic congregants.

“Even as he embarks on this momentous task, we assure the Archbishop that he is accompanied by prayers and good wishes from myself, family and Government.

When we are called to serve, we must always dedicate ourselves to God,family and country. Our actions must demonstrate this order,” Mr. Sata said.

President Sata has since appealed to Archbishop Chama to lead his congregants in praying for the country and its leadership as his
government strives to make Zambia a better place for all.

President Sata reaffirmed the government’s commitment to strengthening the partnership between the church and state.

  1. Congratulations Archbishop. I remember you as a Seme when I was a Kampenga many moons ago and even if we could not make it to priesthood you inspired us to go to Bahati and later on St Clements which formed a basis for our future. Be blessed.

  6. If he is not constituting commissions of fimo fimo, shuffling a brand new cabinet or issuing threats or raving off vulgarities at HH, he is busy congratulating catholic priest promoted by Pope Benedict for molesting children. You bet maybe he also has a child or children with this bishop’s sister, anything is possible with Zondwe, kukomiwa ki mitenya mucembele mumbulu. Konji muta a timelele ali ku cimbama mwa cobeni!
