  1. Hogwash. Why is this small Bishop always looking for a job in government? You can’t mix church and state Baba. Ministry of Religion and National Prayer Day are just a smoke screen.
    Keep your lane Baba and let politicians do what they know best.
    We are on the ground in Roan and we’re coming back with a PF seat!

    • The President failed to talk to the youths on 12th March. His speech in Parliament will be a special dedication to us youths.

    • Why should any sensible person be expectant of ECL from his speeches nothing has ever come out of the pronouncements he makes. Too many evidentiary examples to give from Corruption to job creation to fiscal prudence … By the way since his last SONA what has ever come out of anything he said then??

    • Bishops need to focus more on showing morals across the board for church members to exemplify those morals in public.

      The President needs to exemplify our national identity and moral leadership for all the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise.

      And the rest will be history … let’s roll!!!

      Heaven help us all …

  2. Fossil politicians and their religious advisors, you can’t force backward values and morals on town people who are forced to endure Lungu’s harsh economy. Lungu should talk about how he is going to address many things affecting the youth and the Zambian people in general. For instance, high unemployment, declining healthcare whereby people have to be evacuated abroad and foolishly people will be commending him for evacuating people while he neglects our hospitals. Violence, the economy and of course divisions spearheaded by the seniors in his party who constantly belittle other tribes.

  3. What values and morals would Lungu reinforce yet he’s been fanning the fires of corruption ,foreign dependency and the chaos of dirty street vending under his watch?

  4. Let Lungu talk about the issues affecting the Zambian people, he is totally the wrong person to talk about morals and values. I think you are the right person looking at your title of bishop. Just look at the violence, divisions, intolerance, harassments and honoring of criminals on youth day by his government. Many Zambians are at the breakpoint it’s better to have a message to reassure them than just talking about non-issues that don’t put food on the table.

  5. The Bishop should pray for the souls of some of these corrupt evil men who go into public service to steal and abuse their position. Pray that those suffering do not decide to take justice into their own hands like so many people want to. They should pray the our President has the wisdom to see the damage those evil men are doing to his legacy and their own people and he removes those obese evil men from his reign. He should also pray for those who use their position to further their evil motives like the churches who shun the poor or just focus on politics instead of those in need.
