President Edgar Lungu has urged Zambians not lose sight of their commitment to God despite the economic hardships that the country is currently undergoing.

The President says he is aware that the challenges the country is currently going through are secular in nature but that there is nothing wrong with seeking God’s guidance and intervention in the problem.

ZANIS in Ndola reports that the President said this upon arrival at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola where he is to cheer the Zambia National Soccer team in its match against Sudan this afternoon.

The President, who was received by Sports Minister, Vincent Mwale, is this afternoon expected to lead thousands of soccer fans to cheer the national team.

President Lungu said it would be wrong for Zambians to forget their commitment to God just because of the economic hardships the country is currently facing.

“Even if we have economic problems we should not lose sight and forget about our God. Some people are saying the economic problems are not spiritual yes they are not but let us not forget our commitment to God,” he said.

The President has since called on soccer fans to turn up in large numbers to support the Chipolopolo.

  2. For all his weaknesses (including thieving) FTJ’s calls when we passed thru a similar situation were much more inspiring. This drunk is very depressing.

  3. @itizi turu, sorry you will have to live with your depression for many years to come at least up to 2021. And thereafter maybe we give Ecl a third term. But you will be dead from your own depression by then. You see those of us who are able and willing to face our lives on our own without engaging in the blame game dont suffer from depression and all those self inflicted diseases.

  4. The president speaking the truth here. Wait until Kambwili comes and says something contrary to these words of wisdom. For once if the Kambwili man could remain silent.

  5. Expressing the obvious. Implicitly, it also goes to show that the tabernacle is overkill in this case. Let us, with God in mind, confront the “secular” matters that need “secular” solutions…

  6. Lungu is right about one thing. The economic problems zambia is facing are human. Corruption, ineptitude and mismanagement are what have brought us here today. Dont blame the chinese economy.It is zambia’s own absurdity to blame especially the pipo you chose to lead or let me just say WHO FORCED THEMSELVES ON US BY RIGGING VOTES.
