A newly formed group calling itself Christians for Lungu has come out in defence after many questioned the group’s open support for President Edgar Lungu’s re-election bid.
The group headed by Dr Liya Mutale, a medical practitioner was this week launched in Lusaka at Lusaka’s Hotel Intercontinental.
It plans to use the Church platform to campaign that President Lungu be retained as President of Zambia because of his open declarations about Christianity.
But some quarters have criticised the grouping and urged its founders to stop dragging the name of God in politics.
However, Group Founder Dr Liya Mutale said there is nothing ungodly about the groups existence.
She said, “This assignment is from God, the devil and his agents are going to fight but we must remain resolute and focus on the mission.”
Dr Mutale added, “Edgar Lungu deserves our support, he has reaffirmed the declaration of Zambia as a Christian Nation, declared a National day of Prayer and fasting as if that is not sufficient, he leads the way in building a Terbanacle for the worship of our God.”
“We have no choice but to support him, God’s hand is clearly evident in all he does. Am on God’s side am with Edgar Lungu.”
