Government says it wants to increase knowledge levels on Christian and national values and principles so that people can meaningfully engage in the country’s development.
Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs, Godfrida Sumaili says her Ministry appreciates efforts by people to promote and mainstream Christian and national values and principles for the social transformation of the country.
The Minister said Zambia as a Christian nation with values based in the bible should encourage the culture of reading in its citizens.
The Minister said this in a speech read for her by Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Chief Planner, Mumba Tembo during the launch of the book entitled, ‘Why Me’ written by Bishop Frederick Phiri.
She noted that the book is intended to enable the readers to fine tune their minds and understand why God allows complex and tragic events to happen to people.
And Author of the book, Frederick Phiri said the book aims at encouraging people not to lose hope but make right decisions to attain success.
Bishop Phiri said he was inspired to write the book so that he can share what God has revealed to him during his 26 years of ministry.
He encouraged other clergy men and women to share God’s revelations with the world by writing books for the next generations.
