President Lungu at Lubwa Mission
President Lungu at Lubwa Mission

President Edgar Lungu today joined congregants at Lubwa United Church of Zambia mission in worshiping God, with a call on the church to pray for the political leaders in the country. The President was accompanied at the service by first Republican President Dr Kenneth Kaunda, Muchinga provincial minister Mwimba Malama, cabinet ministers, senior government and party official.

Speaking after the homily, President Lungu implored the church to continue praying for the political leaders in the country. He explained that the devil has invaded the political area, hence his call to the church to pray for the nation. He encouraged the congregants to embracing the love of God in their hearts. Mr Lungu explained that Christianity is not about going to church or carrying the bible but living the life of Christy.

Meanwhile President Lungu has today declared Lubwa mission a national monument. Mr Lungu said he decided to declare Lubwa Mission as a national monument cause of the rich historical back ground the place holds. He further explained that many children will learn a lot about Zambia’s struggle for independence from the site when they visit the place. President Lungu said he will ensure that a Gazette notice is issued to formalize the declaration of Lubwa national monument.

The United Church of Zambia in Chinsali district of Muchinga province have commended government for continuing implementing developmental projects initiated by the late Republican President Michael Sata. Lubwa mission United Church of Zambia Reverend in charge Joseph Kabaso said the church was delighted with government for continuing with developmental projects started by Mr Sata.

Reverend Kabaso cited the construction of the Paul Mushindo university being constructed in honour of Reverend Mushindo as one of the projects initiated by President Sata. He said once the structure is completed it will up lift the face of Lubwa mission to its former glory. Reverend Kabaso also pointed out that the tarring of the Lubwa road once completed will open up the area for development.

Meanwhile the United Church of Zambia Lubwa mission says there is urgent need to rehabilitate the Lubwa clinic which is in a deplorable State. Reverend Kabaso disclosed that one block at the clinic has been closed because of the poor state of the infrastructure.

And Dr Kenneth Kaunda has thanked President Lungu for his humility in congregating with locals in Lubwa. He urged the President to continue his predecessor Mr Sata‘s zeal in developing Zambia. Dr Kaunda said it pleasing that the construction of the university is progressing well. He urged the people in Chinsali to work together with the President in developing the country.

Meanwhile President Lungu in accompany with the former president Dr Kenneth Kaunda visited the burial site Of Dr Kaunda’s parents at Lubwa.

And Nyampande Secondary School and Orphanage President John Mambo says President Lungu’s call on the Church to pray for political leaders in the country is long overdue.

Bishop Mambo in an interview in Lusaka today said President Lungu’s call on the church to pray for leaders is long overdue as that is what is expected.

The clergyman said it was the role of the church in the country to pray for political leaders so that God guides them in the running of the affairs of the country for the benefit of especially people at grassroots level.

He added that the church in the country should take the frontal role as a peace maker by continually praying for politicians

    • Failure to arrest known PF cadres perpetrating violence is devilish. Chartering a plane to go to the UN General Assembly for $300 000 when children are dying of preventable diseases in compounds is devilish. Getting a salary increment when majority of Zambians can barely survive is devilish.

      This is a country Lungu, well last time I checked it was. This is not a church for heaven sake. The Devil has entered politics, really, & how? Through yourself? I now agree with Scott, why is Zambia voluntarily subjecting itself to this torture? How many months to go to August again? In the meantime, is that Chainama hospital still operational?

      This country needs a new leader. Let us try someone else.
      Is he a chairman of nation museum council?

    • This same preacher.. Which Church does he come from? When was he baptised? Had it not been for politics was he capable of preaching the same gospel? When it matters who was the most important consultant to him between Mugabe, sangomas and the Almighty God? Where did he run to? If he ran to his Church, why build a new one instead of thanks giving? Is this the same preacher we expect to see and hear preaching during festival season? God is never mocked.

    • Tonga tribalism and self importance will be defeated on 11th August, 2016. Your boss HH is very unpatriotic. The downfall of the HH lies in the inexperience and immaturity of those in his ranks. With such juvenile antics, the boastful over-stating of own importance, the slander and the petty pickings on online public forums completes the disastrous jigsaw. Many ‘followers’ are left in shock and feeling uneasy by the shallowness, the low show of morals and ethics and the irresponsible utterances by a representative of the UPND leadership.

      You and Kudos amongst others are agents of failed PF campaign strategy of:

      1. Smear campaign against HH
      2. Demonizing Tongas and equating UPND to Southern province when in fact PF just officially got a percentage point lead last time. UPND has support in half of Zambia apart from Bemba in last election
      3. Religious piety tactic of going to church like Dictator Nkurunzinza does
      4. Heroism. Using old KK and Sata legacy to appeal to Bemba votes
      5. Extreme and brutal violence to eliminate campaign space in Lusaka and Copperbelt
      6. Portray Lungu as poor but generous through corruption provided donations

    • This is Lungu’s craziness that Scott was complaining about. Lungu stole from a client and was suspended by his own LAZ peers. He stole the party election from Miles Sampa and stole the national elections from HH. Lungu steals from the Zambian people every day with his inflated emoluments increasing every month, steals from the National treasury to buy tickets for a football match against Congo, and steals to construct a Church for himself. Who is possessed by the Devil? Lungu is a disgrace.

  3. Where the man servant raised and entrusted by God to preside over national state affairs can acknowledge and attest the place of God for his country affairs just like this, God takes his contrite spirit to heart for divine intervention. Zambia is surely blessed to have such leadership unshamed of Divine providence. Count me an intercessor for my country till the walls of Jericho falls apart disastrously.

  6. There is no responsibility in passing the back. The problems Zambia has been experiencing in more than 50 years are related to planning and governance and nothing to do with the devil or God. A mystic horned little creature with a tail burning in hell cannot decide how a country is run.

Humility is known only to a few and ECL is one of the few humble leaders present today..regardless of what the devil tries to do we will stand firm, the devil is taunting us in broad day light we know his agents that want to cause havoc, we know them by their acts of rejoicing when they see others suffering and dying..no we will pray, heavenly father keep the devil and his servants the liars, the war mongers, the authors of hate speech away, let your judgment be upon them, they know themselves even though they pretend their ways are known they are Zambian Watchdog and their cohorts who are purely satanic by their acts.

  10. Using the devil card works very well in Zed. Some conman called Chiluba used it well and the blind church followed him. Lungu wants to emulate him. Once Lungu has got Christians agreeing that there’s a devil around its easy to get these fanatics into identifying someone else other than Lungu as the devil. What you will see now is the identification of certain gatherings as belonging to the devil. 666 will soon be associated with opposition leaders who pose a threat and born agains will every sunday scream for this opposition leader to fail in his attempt to take over God’s people. Why they don’t pray for Donald Trump to fail I don’t know. It’s because they are myopic and see only the here and now.

If so then its shameful that you want to make your friend look like he has failed and yet you are the one creating the same problems in the country. Actually it is dangerous to make such a cartel because information may just be made public and even people who were considering voting for you will lose trust in you.
    If a government leadership is to fail let them fail on their own. Not these things of infiltrating the fuel supply chain and disturb it, organise people to be buying US$ dollars in bulk etc. Every opposition party will one day rule Zambia if they just show maturity. Don’t create problems in the country that will be the source your down fall if you were elected into office.

There will be time to account Mr. President. It is better for you to leave well than destroying even your personal relationship with your opponents and the country at large. We are not foolish to have given you a chance to be in charge of our resources. Don’t break the country. We gave you a chance and you chose to pee on us and we are simply saying, as your masters, you are fired!! If you Mr. President can allow our mothers to be undressed by your own people in full view of your veep and the law, surely that is barbaric and satanic.

  23. Dr Canissius Banda has been quoted as saying that either himself or GBM will be HH’s running mate. Never mind their silly internal,politics but neither he nor GBM can ever be running mate without HH losing half the tonga vote. Now look at this. The Dr has no house not even in Kalingalinga. If he became the Vice President of Zambia by virtue of being the running mate, he will live at Government House. When HH’s term is over the Dr will go back to a rented house in PHI because he is there to serve the people and not to look at his own plight, and the salary of Veep cannot build him a house. Meantime HH will have more than doubled his net worth by the end of his term at State House while the Dr is serving “the people”. In simple terms for those who may not understand the good Dr,…

  24. In simple terms for those who may not understand the good Dr, “serving the people” is UPnD jargon for “serving HH”.
    Foot note: HH is not comfortable having a running mate who is worth something as he does not like competitors who may look as important as himself, which is why GBM, Nkombo, Jack Mwiimbu etc can never be running mates for HH.

  25. the devil has been around for ages. Sata introduced him more in politics by his use of Cobra and consultation of sangomas whom KK, RB and you Changwa have consulted. The blood you have shed thru your cadres is the work of the devil. your oppression of the opposition thru your PF police is the work of the devil. Your corruption and your salary increases 4 times in a year when there’re many poor people is devil’s work. so the devil is already using you. you repent first.
