Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Central Zambia, Garry Kumukwamba has urged all Zambians to be patriotic and preach good about the nation.
In his homily during the 84th anniversary of African Martyr’s day celebrations at Masala parish in Ndola, Bishop Kamukwamba said Zambians should learn to settle their own issues through dialogue and not preaching ill about their own country using foreign and social media.
The Anglican Bishop said it was devastating to note that Zambians have now taken a stance of preaching negativities about their mother land to foreigners whom he said can offer no solution on such matters.
He observed that people from other countries have always preached good about their mother countries, a situation he described as not common among many Zambians.
Bishop Kamukwamba has since urged the general citizenry, the church inclusive to respect the leadership as they were representatives of God.
Meanwhile, Ndola District Commissioner, Canon George Chisulo who graced the celebrations said the church and Government are one, hence the need for the two institutions to work together if the nation was to address some of the challenges its faced with.
Canon Chisulo also urged the Anglican church leadership to join their counterparts and participate in the national dialogue.
