Independent Churches of Zambia (ICOZ) Board Chairperson Bishop David Masupa has apologised to MMD Faction leader Dr. Nevers Mumba that the church was unable to give him the necessary support during his incarceration.

On Monday UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba accused the church of abandoning Dr Mumba in his hard times.

But Bishop Masupa has told Q-news that the church cannot abandon their own irrespective of their standing in society.

He says Dr. Mumba’s incarceration happened within the shortest period of time therefore it was difficult for the church to even pay him a visit in prison.

  1. I don’t agree with Bishop Masupa where he says “Dr. Mumba’s incarceration happened within the shortest period of time therefore it was difficult for the church to even pay him a visit in prison”. There was sufficient time for Dr. Mumba to be visited. Maybe they ‘Bishop Masupa and others’ did not want to be seen by Government officials that they were offering support to someone who is a government critic.

  2. Masupa do not apologize when you do not mean it. How many people are in Jail more belier than Nevers Mumba honestly. What basis is the church visiting Nevers not any other person mwebantu? Because he calls himself a Pastor?

  3. If Nevers is truly MMD leader, how come then that no MMD member could come forward to sign as a suriety for his bail. UPND cadres had to bail out this clown. MMD leader, ha!

  4. Bishop Masupa you’re a big hypocrite. Why apologize to Mumba? Is Liteta and thousands of other prisoners not Zambian? Sometimes it’s better to keep quiet, that way you save yourself unnecessary embarrassment.

  5. In Zambia the opposition members are perceived to be enemy of state. One need to have a strong heart to be in the opposition. And a paster in the opposition told to go back to the PULPIT, but a paster in the ruling party is given a ministerial position.

  6. a lot of Zambians are cowards. probably the church or whatever this body is, thought that they might be guilty by associations and they didn’t want to be in bad books with the pf thugs so they kept a distance.
    I think that’s the aim of the pf fools, to drive that fear in most Zambians. word from the wise. scare tactic is a futile one
