  1. A Catholic manic on the scene Zambians should be braced for anti-opposition prouncements from this man of the collar.Sometimes i tend to wonder why Zambia would bring recycled leaders in all spheres of social,culture,sports.political and now religion.Welcome back Archbishop Mpundu!

  2. Isn’t this the fellow who has been fighting the Christian clause in the Zambian constitution? Isn’t this the same fellow who propped up Sata and Bemba tribalism in the Catholic Church? I hope this time around he will be more of leader than a tribalist and see Zambia beyond Bembazim. A church leader should be beyond tribalism. People who practice tribalism have an inferiority complex. And let him also stop propping up ABZ and Frank Bwalya.

  4. Us CHURCH we VOTE 4 PRESIDENT, As NATION why can’t we VOTE 4 HEATHLY Republican President? 4 making our greaty mother country be kown as NATION of every INVESTOR.

  5. Leave him alone. Those who voted for him meant what they have shown since there was or is no credible leaders apart from him. Where you say its bad or wrong to bring back Achbshp Telescope Mbundu it is fine to all who voted. Kanshi ninshi bane?

  6. Well meaning Zambians should leave this corruption and sex scandal ridden Catholic church. Tresphor Mpundu …my foot!

  7. You zambian media you are the last to up date your news , canot compare yourselves with ,malawi , zimbabwe , tanzania , and the rest in the region why do you come so late we would like to read our news rather than , start with reading nyasa times or ugandan news or kenyan news zambians you should wake up ,don’t be last

  8. “…for me and the Catholic Church, the proclamation of Zambia as a Christian nation is a non-event. It is a useless proclamation because not everyone who says ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of God. How Christian are we? Just take a look at what happens when we have a simple by-election. Corruption, intimidation, fighting, thieving…is that Christianity?” asks Lusaka Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu.
