Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili says President Edgar Lungu remains committed to supporting the church.

Reverend Sumaili said this is evidenced by the creation of her ministry which looks into the welfare of all religious groupings in the country.

Reverend Sumaili was speaking in Lusaka today during a church dedication ceremony of the Nkoloma Seventh Day Adventist church.

And the Minister added that her ministry is also mandated to pay particular attention to the preservation of the national values and principles fostering growth and development in the country.

She said the church being dedicated could not have come at a better time than this when government is trying to bring people together, from all walks of life regardless of religious or political affiliation.

Reverend Sumaili stated that government acknowledges the continued support from the SDA church during national events such as the day of prayer and fasting where they have relentlessly supported the government.

She has since applauded the SDA Church for the continued prayers for all leaders in the nation.

Speaking earlier Northern Zambia Union Executive Secretary Tommy Namitondo said the church should continue uplifting Gods name through its ministry.

Dr. Namitondo said the dedication of the house of God is a clear sign that the congregants are willing to spread the word of God.

He added that Christians should however not forgot to glorify God who has given them the strength and opportunity to live a life of peace and unity.

  1. Who cares Sumaili whether he remains committed to that or not.

    Your ministry should exist to start with.

    You are a drain on national resources.

    Pathetic

    Thanks

  2. This is what happens when you have a party and a president in power who are thieves. They tend to use religion and churches as a conduit for their theft. They use religion to defend their shortcoming and long fingers. When things go bad because of their daft decisions, they will then decide to call “national prayers” and the shallow citizens attend these thinking god will serve them. Wake up zambians. When we tell you that the PF is an incompetent group of thieving thugs you say we are talking too much. and yet you are starving in your homes. I wont suffer I have done well for myself. We arre only trying to help you

  4. “Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili says President Edgar Lungu remains committed to supporting the church.”

    The polarisation Of society between Church and government.

    I think that’s what the government should be supporting.
