The call by the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) that the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) should respect the Church is very hypocritical to say the very least. On record, the UPND has been anti-Church and anti-Prayer and maybe their newly found fondness for issues of faith is informed by the role its ‘De facto Vice president for Political’ Pastor Nevers Mumba.

We doubt if one Charles Kakoma and the rest of the UPND leadership have already forgotten their stance on the relationship between the Church and the State. Perhaps the following ‘reminders’ will help:

1. The UPND did not only resist but also mocked calls for national prayer and fasting.

2. On multiple occasions and platforms, the UPND said the reliance on prayer and Christian worship to intervene in national issues was a failure to use human intelligence.

3. When the Church called upon the UPND to concede defeat and duly acknowledge the presidency of His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu, the party responded with unpalatable language.

The list of incidences where the opposition party has gone to the point of even publicly castigating church leaders who call upon praying and/or respecting the PF led government is both long and documented.

Therefore, the UPND do not have any place to try and ‘align’ themselves with the church just because the latter seems to be saying something that might benefit the former.

After history is written, generations of Zambians will read about a President who declared 18th October as a National Day of Prayer, Reconciliation and Fasting in line with the words of scripture in 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land”. Acting on Zambia’s faith as a Nation, God answered our prayers, we have had sufficient rains and bumper harvests. We continue trusting in God for wisdom and favour.

  1. 1. How do you call for national prayer and at the same time brutalise the same people that you are calling for prayer?
    2. How do you deliberately institutionalise corruption and there after ask people to go and pray because the economy is just failing?
    3. How do you openly rig the election and there after ask the opposition to accept the results?

  2. Without reading this crap, it is the creeps like Chanda that are exacerbating the situation we have.
    Mr. Chanda, you do not have to respond to everything lest you look foolish. You are making the President look bad in the eyes of the people. Can you tone down guys.

  4. The blame game will continue. PF must show leadership and talk to opponents.
    Imagine you have conflicts with your neighbor and don’t need to talk to your neighbor, what will you have achieved to be adamant.
    Personally, I am ready to my worst enemy because I believe your worst enemy or critic can be great supporter.
    Sunday , my young man , in life have a open mind but be firm on godly principle . Never look down on people but be sober, cool, calm and collected…

  7. SUNDAY, YOUR UTTERANCES ARE SO HYPOCRITICAL; YOU CANNOT FORCE PEOPLE TO PRAY WITH YOU WHEN WE CAN SEE THAT YOU USE THE CHURCH AND THE NAME OF GOD TO HOODWINK PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE HUMBLE. THE CHURCH HAS BEEN USED FOR POLITICAL MILEAGE. PRAY ABOUT THE DEBT YOUR GOVERNANCE HAS PLUNGED US INTO. IT IS NOT THOSE THAT PUBLICLY SAY LORD,LORD THAT WILL BE SAVED BUT RATHER THOSE WHO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD AND KEEP IT.
