PF Lusaka Central Constituency Chairperson, Chitano Nkoma, says the party leadership would continue to uphold peace during and after the forthcoming August 11 elections.
Speaking during a prayer session held at Living Hope Church in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Nkhoma said this was the reason the party in the constituency held prayers yesterday to seek God’s guidance for peaceful elections.
Mr Nkhoma said the party leadership was seeking God’s guidance for the country to have peaceful elections before, during and after the elections.
He said after the rise in the number of political violence cases in the country with the recent one being the attack on the PF chairperson for Information, Frank Bwalya, the PF was calling for zero tolerance to violence.
And speaking at the same event, Living Hope Pastor, Sydney Mulenga, called for humble political leaders if the forthcoming August 11 elections were to be peaceful.
Pastor Mulenga, who used the event to wash the feet of some congregants, said it was through having humble leaders that the country would continue enjoying peace since 1964.
Meanwhile, the PF Lusaka Central Constituency has continued its mobilisation programme ahead of the forthcoming August 11 general elections after it opened another branch at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) called the Michael Chilufya Sata Branch
Speaking at the launch of the branch, Mr Nkhoma said the establishing of a branch at the UTH was an indication that the PF was growing from strength to strength.
The Michael Chilufya Sata becomes the 33rd PF branch aimed at ensuring the ruling party’s strength in Lusaka Central.
