Christian Coalition Secretary General Dr. Paul Mbulo says they will not participate in the day of National Prayer and Fasting which will be held on 18th October.
Dr Mbulo said this is because the event is more political and has failed to meet the aspirations of Ephesians 4:3 on making every effort to keep the unity of the Nation through the bond of peace.
He said it’s time Zambia learnt from the United States how to mark this important event.
He said in the US where the National Day of Prayer started in 1952, it has helped build bridges between opposing persons and political parties.
Dr Mbulo noted that prayer can bring unity in Zambia if only the day of National Prayer, fasting and reconciliation is held after political leaders have reconciled and they all participate in this important event.
Dr. Mbulo added that Government should allow the Church to take the lead and invite Christians and not cabinet office.
He said his organisation has since directed their members to use this day to educate Christians within their constituencies on the importance of voting in 2021.
