    • God is a God of priorities. Most of people who go to Pastor Banda`s church have no access to healthcare. Why not build a “House of Healthcare”.

  1. Instead of lobbying for improved living for zambians, or addressing fuel and mealie meal shortages, Lungu is busy fundrasing for Mega-churches! Most of that money will even go into the pockets of a few “Friends of PF”. Mr. Banda already has a big church. These people have no shame.

  2. 55% of that came from tribalism practices with ECL through the efforts of silencing and ousting Nevers Mumba, by way of reconciliation by that crazy old man, RB, and tarnishing UPND’s HH through the recent utterances which you uttered recently, and denied the following day before HH could respond…And these so called Bishops, who gives you those titles when you have very ill biblical training…Refrain….Bishops of Poverty!!!

  3. It is not supprizing because the bible says that in the last days men will be lovers of money than God.

  4. Bishop Banda should just step down or else the begining to fall of Pentecostal Assemblies is on the wall. Majority of the members of the church are not happy with you draging yourself into patisan politics. HH 2016

  5. Mwebantu..when was this man baptised and receive Jesus Christ as his personal saviour?There is an important step that he seemed to have overlooked in his journey from Chawama playboy to Plot1 Pharisee.I remember LPM’s baptism at the baptish church in Ibex Hill.

  6. Keep to your fundraising. Don’t touch our treasury. Don’t do a Nkandla on Zambians. Our tax is for development structures not on self appeasing spiritual gallivanting

  7. Shameful ***** they can’t raise money for just causes or even a library to empower their people BUT they waste time raising money to build a house of prayer to brainwash them…Afrikans when are we going to wake up from this mental slavery.

  8. MWEBALEKULE CO ICIYANDA MWIKAKULA FYE ICITELE CHA NKOKO AS IS ALWAYS THE CASE IN ZAMBIA WHERE STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION IS CONCERNED. BARE IN MIND THAT COMPETITIVELY, DESIGNED THAT TABERNACLE CAN BE A SHOW CASE AND THEREFORE, A MAGNET FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS. THEREFORE, DURING THE PLANNING STAGE PLEASE, SIT DOWN WITH INTERNATIONAL (AND LOCAL) DESIGN EXPERTS WHOM YOU SHOULD TELL YOUR DREAMS ABOUT THIS HOUSE. THESE EXPERTS WILL INTERPRET YOUR DREAMS AND COMMUNICATE THE CONCEIVABLE PICTURE OF YOUR DREAMS. BUT, BEFORE YOU CONVERGE WITH THEM YOU MUST CONVINCE YOURSELVES THAT YOU HAVE AN IDEA ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE AND FOR YOU TO HAVE SUCH IMAGINATIVE IDEAS YOU WILL DEFINITELY NEED TO VISIT EVEN OTHER PLACES WITH SUCH SIMILAR PHYSICAL REALITIES.
