The Association of Catholic Parliamentarians in Zambia has resolved to use its legislative privileges to defend social justice and improve the livelihood of people.

Association Chairperson Professor Nkandu Luo who is also Minister in charge of Higher Education says the catholic Parliamentarians will ensure that they support the legislation that promotes wealth creation and eradication of poverty.

’’ We discussed the issue of poverty and how we need to realign policies to ensure that they point to wealth creation, we also spoke about conflict and what we can do to ensure that this vice is completely eradicated,’’ She said.

She was speaking in Addis Ababa, when she together with three other Catholic cabinet Ministers transited from Rome where they also had an opportunity to meet with Pope Francis.

The others were Lands Minister Jean Kapata, Minister in the Office of the Vice President Syvia Chalikosa and Central Province Minister Sydney Muchanga.

She disclosed that an Icon that has been blessed by Pope Francis will be circulated in some African Parliaments including Zambia.

The Minister also said the meeting discussed the need to improve and redefine the education Systems in order for it to respond to the needs of societies.

She further said that the church was concerned about some laws in some States that were in conflict with the catholic beliefs.

The Ministers were received at Bole International Airport by Charge De Affairs at the Embassy of the Republic of Zambia In Ethiopia, John Chisanga.

  1. Good move. Next time the minister of Religion should be a Catholic priest. We need a person who is properly educated not that funny woman with a fake six months education. Hopeless!

  3. This is very bad and meant to divide the nation further. All these so called Catholic Parliamentarians in the delegation are PF. So is it open to other parties and if so where do they draw their authority or allegiance? party or church?? Should we then have SDA parliamentarians, Pentecostal, UCZ, etc????

    Can these job seekers oppose anything that say is in conflict between the position of the church and the government?

    • Correct obsrvation! This is divisive and likely to conflict with national constitution and party manifestos which should be the guide on governance and development respectively. But this catholic group of parliamentarians, where does it draw its mandate from? Parliament should never be divided on denomination or issues to be discussed based on doctrinal inclination. Please nip it whilst in the bud or else the Pope will grow wings that will never be clipped at some point.

  4. There is no such thing as social justice. There is only justice. Any adjective to the word is a perversion of it’s meaning. The term ‘social justice’ is a leftist attempt to pervert justice through cultural marxism. Beware !

  5. They can also form their own provided it is for the poor people of Zambia. What I have taken from this is that these people wants to strengthen their Catholic faith despite them being Parliamentarians, so I believe that even these other Churches can do that and remember if all of them are doing it for the good cause, then they can even be meeting at some meetings to share ideas.

  7. The moment I saw that WIG, I knew she’s up to no good! Is this the official position of the Catholic Church and mother bodies? If so then ZCID is right in discrediting the church! What social justice is there in denying certain regions development just because they never gave you the vote? Religion is man-made and religious differences run dipper than political ones! Stop being Dogmatic, humble yourself and learn the ways of Wisdom! Why do some of these people sound more educated but lacking in sense? Have they become useful Id__ts?

  8. That sounds funny it is divisive to the Zambian public , leave it it is childish all you need is a parliament that speaks for all zambians .
    Church shouldnt divide the people of Zambia we dont want religious wars in parliament let politicians do their duties in the house and let the church continue to pray for our leaders in government and in opposition church should concentrate on the work of God to win souls for the kingdom of God.

  9. If the Pope sees how Nkandu instructed her thugs to butcher the people of Munali he will excommunicate her from his church. There’s everything wrong with Nkandu Luo, daughter of a kabilo wa mfumu
