Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili has called on political leaders to reflect on Christian values and ethics when conducting their politics.

Rev. Sumaili said there is need for political leaders to value morality and national principles and promote democracy in the country.

She said this when she paid a courtesy call on Patriotic Front Secretary General, Davies Mwila at the PF Secretariat in Lusaka today.

Rev. Sumaili said political leaders should uphold the tenets of integrity, transparency and accountability in the utilisation of national resources.

She further said her ministry will intensify the sensitisation of ethics and national values in the various communities.

Rev. Sumaili said the interparty dialogue should be taken seriously as it is a platform for various political players and stakeholders to unite.

Meanwhile, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila said his party is ready for the interparty dialogue and will ensure that peace continues to prevail in the nation.

Mr. Mwila has also urged cadres to refrain from violence during the by elections.

He commended the minister of national guidance for spreading the programmes on the need to uphold national values and principles.


  1. The good “reverend” trying to placate her conscience which daily convicts her for the free money she is getting doing a non existent job, by making meaningless, irrelevant statements.

  2. Ha ha Sumailli, free money from government. What part of this free money you give back to church and the poor in Zambia?

  3. Godfridah Iwe, corruption, thug life, na bu kawalala full mu PF, but we NEVER hear you advising them to stop violence, deception & State Plunder.
    Why don’t you tell Kaizer to uphold “Christian Values”
    You wouldn’t, coz he’s the one who tells Chief Mutaware to hire & fire, & you a “Christian Wolf in Sheep’s clothing” would chula ne nsala, like the common I’ll educated Cadre, who does your dirty work on the Zambian street!

  4. This is one of the most useless, wasteful ,misdirected and inappropriate ministries ever.
    Only Saudi Arabia & Iran comes close to this lunacy

    • Well said, @Enka. But notice that Saudi Arabia under the erstwhile new crown prince is moving away from such behaviors but Zambia appears hellbent to drive us all into the medieval period. Soon witches will be burning at the stake at this rate..l
