Edgar Lungu during the Fasting and Prayer Church services at Lusaka Showground: praying , mediating and releasing dove
Was this a political ploy

Action speaks louder than words

“October 18th shall for ever, for ever a be a day of prayer and fasting in Zambia” declared President Lungu, and the innocent souls of the Republic said Amen.

Why is it however, difficulty to follow the tenets of the word of God which are enshrined in forgiveness by the same president?

In prayer we seek forgiveness, as a matter of fact we also ask God to give us grace to forgive others. The later is however very hard to do. Does God still forgive us when we refuse to show mercy to others?

“Mathew 6: 14- “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”. I guess the continued fall of the Kwacha is another way of God saying, I refuse to forgive you, because you refuse to forgive others.

I expected the president to come out renewed spiritually with some heavenly bold and practical action items

At the end of last prayer and fasting, 18th October, I expected the president to come out renewed spiritually with some heavenly bold and practical action items. The removal of the unfair law in Public Order Act, because we serve a fair God. Second, I expected him to speak to his cabinet to stop with immediate effect the mad slinging of political opponents. The country prayed for unity, the continued divisive tribal talk by PF bemba ministers does not come from above. If the next election will also be decided on tribal lines, you should know the end of our 51-year old republic is near.

The people of North Western ,Western , Copperbelt rural ,much of Central and greater Lusaka Provinces will very much like the tribal politics notched upwards, because a divided Zambia will leave their mineral rich areas to the control of Bantu Botatwe control. Mr President you are playing with fire.

Two days after prayer and fasting Chief Government Spokesman Ba Kambwili warned radio phoenix with revocation of radio license for opening its doors to the opposition parties, eish, what a harsh God we worship in Zambia.

Vice president Inonge Wina has just warned HH with arrest under the Public Order Act, if he continues behaving like a free citizen of Zambia in the Copperbelt. I could take this kind of behavior from Kambwili, not mama Wina. She is the pillar of decency in the nation, the mother for all of us.. Why has thou abandoned prayer for cheap politics mama Wina.

President Lungu , you are a good man and you hold a solemn duty to hold this country together. Show the nation “Prayer and fasting was not just a political ploy to take advantage of poor weak innocent naive Christian believing Zambians. Actions speaks louder than words Mr President.

  1. I said it that this day that EL has declared will very soon come back to expose him and haunt him till he leaves office in 2016. He thought he had opined down HH with this but not at all. Today Zambians know who was just politicking about this declaration.

    • Chagwa Lungu and his fellow hypocrites cannot mock God in vain. They think they can blindfold Zambians using matters of the spirit. You can’t mix politics and religion, they don’t work. Today you’re insulting your political opponets tomorrow you’re in church. No ways.

  3. I warn mama Wina to take his hands off HH. We had respect for her but now our respect for her are gone. I agree that we would have expected her words coming from Kambwili and not her. Why did she not go to arrest Mumbi in Eastern province. Mama Wina should know that if HH gets locked up, we will lock her up too after PF is gone in 2016. She’s older than HH and prison will not be good for her and she’s not above the law. Lungu too is not above the law. Zambians have moved from the fear of politicians. even the great KK wamuyaya, we resisted when he tried to push Zambians too far.

  4. ECL and Mama Wina instigating voilence in the country by forbidding HH and opposition to campaign on Copperbelt. Where is KK to intervene? We miss H.E Mwanawasa because in the hard times when Anglo America left the mines, Mwanawasa managed to bring in investors and they started paying windfall taxes and the Dollar was at K3000.00 and RB left it K5200.00 but now its K13,000 per 1US$. He also allowed Michael Sata to campaign freely in any part of Zambia immediately MCS lost the 2006 polls. HH 2016

  7. in a couple of years time??
    the African Spring is now. as long as the rains stay away and the cost of food goes up, more and more people are seeing that our esteemed revolutionary liberation leaders are nothing more than a bunch of criminals that have hijacked the country. Armageddon is coming

  8. It is not PF responsility alone to obey Gods law. Do not use God’s word to achieve your selfish ambitions. If Govt had allowed the meeting snd blood shed you would still blame govt. This time is for work such meetings will be held next year
