The Northmead Assembly of God has dispelled media reports suggesting that its Presiding Overseer Bishop Joshua Banda together with Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia Executive Director Reverend Pukuta Mwanza have received K500, 000 from state House.
And Northmead Assembly of God Executive Board Secretary Gibster Makangila said it is also not true that Bishop Banda is a leader of a group called Christians for Lungu.
In a statement obtained in Lusaka, Mr. Makangila said Bishop Banda is neither a Member nor leader of the said group or a Director at Indeni Oil Refinery as suggested.
He said the church is disappointed and dismayed by libelous misinformation and reports suggesting that Bishop Banda is aligned to one political party adding that he remains one sided in responding to issues affecting the nation.
Mr. Makangila has charged that the reports remain deliberate and calculated efforts by some interest groups to misalign Bishop Banda.
