An opposition civic leader in Monze District says today’s National day of prayers united the country for further development.

Monze Central ward councillor Barnabas Chiiya said the now national prayer day has helped unite the country across political, religious background and bring the much needed development.

Mr. Chiiya also said that while prayer was needed to bring about unity in the country there was also need for concerted efforts by the
government to embark on measures aimed at revamping the battered economy.

“ In as much as prayer definitely bring about unity, reconciliation and peace there is also need for this government to double efforts
aimed at revamping our ailing economy because honestly speaking prayer alone is not the only panacea to our economic problems,” said
Mr. Chiiya.

The civic leader was speaking to ZANIS shortly after the event held at Mulumbwa Park in Monze, district, today

He also envisaged a peaceful, corruption, violence free country after today’s national prayers adding that he hope to see more
resources dedicated to needy areas of the economy and reduction on unnecessary expenditures.

And Monze District Commissioner Mr. Cyprian Hamayanga has expressed happiness at the large turnout of people adding that those
who shunned the event missed a lot of messages of good hope for themselves and the country at large.

Mr. Hamanyanga expressed hope that the after today’s National Day of Prayers, there would be significant positive change in the manner
politics in the country was conducted.

Meanwhile, Patriotic Front (PF) District Chairman Gilbert Mwila said the PF would like to see genuine forgiveness, reconciliations, no
political violence from now on.

“As PF we have always been saying that if we cannot agree among ourselves let us agree with God and for us in PF we want to see true
forgiveness, reconciliation, and peace in the way we do politics in this country,” said Mr. Mwila.

The event in Monze attracted a number of people from different religious denominations, political parties while some opposition political parties were conspicuously absent at the event.

  1. MBAVA PA PODIUM. Whilst they hide money meant to alleviate the suffering of Zambians in far off, Offshore accounts, & will not return a red cent, they parade themselves, pretending to be God fearing citizens, seeking reconcilliation.
    You know who You are as You [email protected] Zambia while in office
    Honestly how to some of these “God fearing” Bandits sleep at night???

    • A conclusion from one Southerner about his perception of the event is hardly an average reflection of what most Zambians would say. LT, you should have obtained views across the country in all the ten provinces. The choice of the region of your source of the story smacks of your skewed thinking as to whom you think needs to reconcile.

    • I can’t believe Edgar has now been carried away with the Zambia-forward wind of change! It’s evident in the picture.

  2. WE SUCH A GULLIBLE PEOPLE. THESE PHARISEES ARE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK WHILE ZAMBIANS MULE SHSISHITA WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED. WAKE UP AND DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY. IMAGINE ALL THOSE MAN HOURS LOST DURING THIS USELESS PARADE ATI NATIONAL PRAYER AND RECONCILIATION DAY. THATS WHY WE HAVE A COUNTRY THAT IS NOT PRODUCTIVE. BUSINESS OWNERS WERE HIT WITH UNNECESSARY LOSES ATI RECONCILIATION? TOMORROW THE KWACHA WILL FALL AGAIN INSTEAD OF COMING UP WITH ECONOMIC SOLUTIONS WE ARE SHOWING INVESTORS AND THE WOLRLD HOW USELESS OUR GOVERNMENT IS. WORLD IS WONDERING WHAT OUR NEXT MOVE WILL BE LUNGU CALLS THE NATION TO FAKE PARADE OF RELIGIOUS HYPOCRISY. OKAY NOW THAT YOU HAVE SAID AMEN WHATS YOUR STRATEGY FOR THE ECONOMY?

  3. WE LOVE AND FEAR GOD. BUT THIS LIP SERVICE, AND PEOPLE GET DECEIVED TO THINK THAT THESE EVIL LEADERS HAVE REPENTED. WATCH THE PACE FROM THESE POLITICIANS TWO-THREE DAYS DOWN THE LINE.
