Bread of Life Church International-Zambia Overseer Joe Imakando has called on all stakeholders involved in the pending political dialogue process to put national interest first instead of pushing their partisan agendas.
Bishop Imakando noted that Zambians were expecting a positive outcome from the pending dialogue among political players hence the need for the concerned stakeholders to take the process seriously.
He told ZANIS in Kasama at the weekend that since the church is spearheading the national dialogue, chances of the process succeeding were high.
Bishop Imakando added that if stakeholders engage in genuine dialogue, cases of political tensions in the country will be a thing of the past.
He has since pledged to continue preaching messages of peace and unity in the country.
Meanwhile, Bishop Imakando has urged the general citizenry in the country to celebrate the festive season in a responsible manner.
He stated that the festive season is the time to remember the life of Christ and not a time to engage in illicit activities such as alcohol and drug abuse.
Bishop Imakando was over the weekend in Kasama for an annual Bread of Life International conference under the theme “The Year of Taking Over”.
