Non- Governmental Organizations’ Coordinating Council (NGOCC) board Chairperson Sara Longwe has urged Zambians to unite and demand for the country’s leadership to ensure that Zambia, the once an oasis of peace, is restored back to its former glory forthwith.
Speaking during the National Prayer Meeting for peace and Unity in Zambia at the Lusaka’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross organized by City of Refuge Ministries Church on 15th may, 2017, Ms. Longwe who also noted with sadness the decision by the Energy Regulation Board (ERB) to approve the 75 per cent electricity tariff hike for retail said the situation and other hovering thorny issues in Zambia if left unchecked Zambia’s governance system will deteriorate and the economy will collapse and devastate the lives of many Zambians.
“Zambians should stand up and unite as they demand for the country’s leadership to ensure that Zambia, the once an oasis of peace, is restored back to its former glory immediately” Ms. Longwe said
And speaking at the same event, Bishop Simon Chihana said the church in Zambia has a duty to preach peace and not to be compromised by some of the selfish politicians in Zambia.
“The church has a duty to preach peace in Zambia but it must not allow itself to be compromised by some of the selfish politicains” Chihana said
