MMD President Nevers Mumba says the Church should be concerned with the recent ritual killings and unusual road accidents.
Dr Mumba said the country has gone through such shedding of blood before prior to elections and that if the Church does not step up to the challenge the country could face more deaths.
Below is statement from Dr Mumba’s Facebook page.
The MMD is deeply saddened by the loss of so many lives in the recent accident which took place in Kabwe. I wish to send my deepest condolences on behalf of the MMD to all the bereaved families. May the Lord give you strength and comfort during this very trying time.
I wish to call on the Church to take recent ritual killings and the unusual accidents as a matter of great concern. Zambia has gone through such shedding of blood and deaths prior to elections before. If the Church does not step up, we could face more and more of these unusual deaths. In the next thirty days, we shall see a combination of greed, desperation and fear push some politicians to involve themselves in dark and evil activities.
To politicians who may wish to indulge in these evil and disparate activities, please remember that, you may even win an election, but your life will be cut short. This is a biblical principle.
I urge all Zambians to unite in prayer and stop the spirit of death which has been unleashed on innocent citizens.
