Lusaka Catholic Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu at a media briefing

The Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) has distanced itself from the joint statement issued by the Church mother bodies in Lusaka. EFZ outgoing board vice chairperson Peter Ndhlovu says the EFZ board was not consulted and represented at Kapingila house.

Bishop Ndhlovu has charged that Bishop Telesphore Mpundu’s statement has potential to cause anarchy in the country, adding that the church should focus on building Zambia by preaching peace and leave politics to politicians.

Bishop Ndhlovu said that Zambia only has one President who was duly elected and that the people’s will should be respected.

The bishop further said Zambia is not a dictatorship, contrary to assertions by the other church mother bodies.

And Four Political Parties have called on the three Church Mother bodies to preach national reconciliation and not ignite divisions in the country. The New Congress Party, Christian Democratic Party, Zambia Republican Party and the Citizens Democratic Party say the role of the church is to promote national unity in diversity.

Speaking at a Joint press briefing in Lusaka today, Christian Democratic Party leader Dan Pule said yesterday’s statement by the three Church Mother bodies is a misrepresentation of what is happening in the country.

Dr. Pule said that the statement was not a consensus of all Churches and did not reflect the true picture of what is transpiring in the country.

And New congress party president Peter Chanda said it is the duty of the church to unite and not divide citizens by taking sides.

And Citizens Democratic Party leader Robert Mwanza said allegations that president LUNGU is not a democrat are baseless.

Mr. Mwanza said branding the country as undemocratic is unfounded and should be condemned in the strongest terms possible.

And Zambia Republican Party president Wright Musona said the three church mother bodies should not only call for dialogue but advise the UPND to recognize President EDGAR LUNGU as the duly elected President of Zambia.

      It is a known fact that these people who have paraded themselves here are PF stooges. Bishop Ndhlovu is the one leading the state house church where unprincipled pastors gather every Sunday afternoon. Wright or Wrong Musoma has always campaigned for PF. I know him personally. The rest are known to you all. It’s unfortunate that Pastors can sink so low just for money.

      Always dictators and people who have power hanging in their heads can not heed advise. Instead of the president taking an introspective, he has now hired unprincipled pastors to defuse the advise that can save him.

      Zambians have long ignored Telesphore Mpundu and his kitchen sink political trolling errands. His verbatim, and convulsive behavior manifests a worsen state of Alzheimer’s brain. The courts have already ignored his fatwa as senseless rants. Just for political expedience, he has turned into a partisan troll. Consequently eliminated himself from the league of peacemakers in Zambia.

      Bishop Telesphore Mpundu, and Paul Mususu represented their own political interest and not those of the mother bodies.

      This is very clear, when did gone start permitting refusal to submit to authority?

      I think and know that God stays steadfast, consistent and the same yesterday, today and forever.

      Where is the the godly counsel of Mpundu and Mususu when HH is breaking the law?

      No surprise. These are little hungry parties masquerading as people ‘s voices but deep down their little brains they know the truth. For example, can Wright Musona tell me why (1) Mr LUNGU abrogated the Republican Constitution by (a) refusing to hand over power during the Petition filed y the UPND (b) refusing to leave State House during the same time and yet the same Constitution which he appended demands so? (2) Can Musona tell me why Mr Lungu is refusing to hear the UPND petition in the courts of law if he is cock sure that he won the 11/08/2016 election? Musona and this disgraced Pule, you are practicing cheap politics based on brown envelops! Shaaa…

    This is the more reason why we need dialogue in the country. And for dialogue to succeed people must be open minded and be ready to listen and be listened to. There must be nothing like recognise this person as President before we talk or things like whats the agenda. We surely all know what is supposed to be on the agenda

      So now that he has the Police under his push button, and 9months after elections obviously he has strengthened his position and doing everything possible to suppress any opposition(silenced CK & locked up HH), and he is already planning for 2021 AND suddenly he doesn’t see the need for dialogue? And now you talk about setting up a bad precedence? If you are sure that HH was responsible for the fires, why there is no one locked up and charged with arson?

    I have stated before that ********** are dishonest about what exactly they want. They have no courage to state the truth, i.e. they want a tonga President for Zambia. Whereas there is nothing wrong with a tonga to be President of Zambia, the Donkeys dont have to be so tribalistic about, just do it through normal channels, if the person is.popular and has good ideas that tonga will be voted in by the people of Zambia. Otherwise people just resent this idea of tonga only president of ********** and refuse to vote for one. And it seems they were so confident of winning this time, but the result shocked them. I hear in tge govt ofgices they were saying simething like ” now if you cant speak our language how are we going to work with you?”, can you believe…

    Archbishop Teresphore Mpundu has stood the test of time.
    During UNIP one party state era he criticized the government for bad governance.
    During MMD he stood to the truth and sided with the oppressed. PF was on the receiving end but the bishop stood for the truth,MMD was accusing of a brother in law to Sata.
    Not long ago, PF started calling the bishop all sorts of names.
    All those who criticized the bishop have fallen and Lungu is in that trap, he will fall.

    Danny Pule is a hypocrite and no sober person can believe him. What the mother bodies initially said is the true picture of the situation in Zambia. Even in old times, governments were rebuked for doing wrong by God’s men. Men of God stood on the word of God without fear to the point of death. Even Saul was rebuked by Samuel for sinning. The elections were irregular and they are busy saying you can’t dispute them. You can not force the UPND to recognize the Presidency. Even if they are forced to confess it, in their hearts they won’t believe it. The best solution is to have straight and transparent elections without disadvantaging the other groups.

      In democracy, impunity is punishable by law. How else can the country build posterity stability, prosperity and posterity? The spoilers are also keen to create confusion.

The cracks are already starting to emerge in the Christianity Clause because the Church forgives unconditionally whereas Government pardons according to the law.

    SO THE SOTN REPORT BY THE THREE “CHURCH MOTHER BODIES” WAS A HOAX MOOTED BY TERESFOR MPUNDU. HOW CAN WE BE RECEIVING CONTRADICTING STATEMENTS FROM MEMBERS OF THE SAME BODIES? THEY ARE NOT CONSULTING THEIR MEMBERS. AND THE SDA CHURCH TO WHICH HH BELONGS HAS NOT SAID ANYTHING. WHAT ARE THE THREE BODIES COMPETING FOR?

    It is interesting to note that Mpundu and mususu both who are dictators for not consulting their board members before issuing biased statements are accusing others of dictatorship! Repent or God will deal with you for your hypocricy and self righteousness.
