Present Edgar Lungu was on Sunday among several Anglican faithful who attended the opening Eucharist service of the 16th session of the Anglican Consultative Council at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in LUSAKA.

Prominent among the people that attended were first Republican President Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, Energy Minister Dora Siliya and former Vice President Enock Kavindele among others.

The service was punctuated with songs and dance from Anglican choirs from across the region.

Speaking when he delivered the sermon, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Portal Welby said he is hopeful that Zambia’s August 11 polls, will be incident free.

The Anglican Archbishop said the country should pursue the path of righteousness even as it goes to the polls.

He noted that Zambia unlike some countries has had a record of peace.

The Anglican Consultative Council is held every three years.

  1. Really laughable they have comfortable leather sofas in the church…I guess some are more important than others to sit on stiff benches or chairs in “the house of the lord”.

    • @ Jay Jay, it’s because they are so self centered even in their beliefs. They do say that everyone is equal in the eyes of God, no? Looks like it doesn’t work that way. Christian Zambians being taken for a ride by their Christian leaders yet again.

    • Ha Jay Jay, or condemer in chief. You must be a bitter man for spewing negativity with every comment. We understand that the small tribe from southern province as guy Scott put is thirsty for power. It has eluded you all since Nkumbula and if the negativity continues, even this will.

    • In Africa everything is exaggerated. Sofas for leaders, at meetings, at rallies, at sod turning ceremonies, at agricultural shows and now even in church. Whereas in the West this is not the case. When Obama was taking the oath of office he sat on a simple chair. And even when he attended a memorial service in church in South Carolina he sat on a bench like everyone else. This is the president of the most powerful country in the world not some banana republic. I think Western leaders are always thoroughly surprised whenever they visit Africa at the extreme love for comfort displayed by African counterparts.

  2. Lungu should have flown to the accident scene if he is really sorry. His government corruption is the cause of this. From the time Sata to RDA to corrupt state house, our roads have never been safe.

  3. Hypocrites indeed. KK set himself up as a god in Zambia (remember David Kenneth Kaunda Temple at state house?) and didn’t want to have anything to do with the almighty God in heaven.

  4. Bwana Bishop, why hope for peaceful elections when the man who holds the key is seated just next to you? In case you didnt know, he is the Cammander in chief of the service and armed forces. He can hire and fire the inspector general of police and provincial commanding officers. if today he said let there be no violence, ordered the IG to end violence and fire or retire the commanding officer whose province is tolerating violence, there will be no violence. Ni ka political will kafunika che apa

  5. That is all Dr Kaunda is good at. To be seen on camera by each Zambian President who comes to power and not guiding the Nation into the right direction as a father of the Nation! Is he still UNIP even? Mandela died as a father of the South Àfrican Nation and ANC stalwart, as for Kaunda, I don’t know! He loves the camera so much.

    • I remember when he ignorantly advised Given Lubinda to “be loyal.”
      Zambia’s is the only government system where politicians are expected to be loyal to the President. It is presumed that the president is infallible, a very dangerous proposition.
      In other countries they are expected to uphold the Constitution.

  6. Haters so if the president is invited he should decline? Mulekwatako meaning ba upnd let the man rule your time will come but not just now.
