PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has called on the church to embrace politicians and pray for them.

Addressing congregants at the Reformed church of Zambia in Chipata during the welcome ceremony of Rev Masauso Moyo this morning, President Lungu noted that politicians needed the church’s prayers.

He noted that good Christians would actually make good politicians and appealed to the Church to encourage its members to join politics too.

“Politicians are human beings n need prayers. Give us good Christians who are politicians so that we will work with them because they make good politicians,” President Lungu said.

He added that many politicians are actually believers in Christ and therefore needed to be embraced in the church family.

President noted that government considers the church as a partner in development as they complimenting government efforts by providing hospitals, schools and other social amenities.

And during the service Reverend ROSE MALOWA told congregants that political leadership comes from God.

Rev Malowa said it was for this reason that the Church was praying for Presidrnt Lungu to provide effective leadership.

Meanwhile speaking at the same church service synod vice Modarator Moses Mwale asked President Lungu to help the church raise funds for the running of its school following the decline in church offering.

He said the reduction in offering by congregants had made it difficult for the church to run its institution.

  1. Now he has won the elections he is back on the comfy sofa in the front of the church …surely how can you embrace politicians and pray for them when they are VIPs in the house of God called Church.
    Lazy Lungu stop cheating people you hypocrite, why should the church pray for people who steal plots from the councils and who proudly share among themselves with impunity.

  2. Why can’t SADC behave like the west african countries and demand for the petition to heard. We still want to know the true winner of the August 2016 elections.

  3. Mr President, since You are now in “The House of God” why not confess & tell us where Samuel Chavula is, why you hired him, & finally what he did for You?
    Remember we see You in the picture holding ” the book of Truth”
    GIVE US THE TRUTH!!

  4. Lungu is is just like mushota. A person who gambles and leaves everything to luck as he lacks a plan. Same way ka mushota is living in Scotland while fighting for her stay there based on luck. Praying everyday that she wins her appeal to remain in Scotland
