Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili has urged the Church to take a leading role in promoting national values and unity.

Reverend Sumaili says it is the responsibility of the Church to preach about national unity as it is cardinal to national development.

ZANIS reports that Rev Sumaili, was speaking in Lusaka today, during a farewell service for Salvation Army Zambia Territorial Commander, Commissioner Margaret Siamoya.

Rev Sumaili said Government is aware and appreciates the many programmes that the Salvation Army has undertaken to uplift the living standards of people across the country.

The Minister noted that the Salvation Army has partnered with Government in a number of developmental projects such as provision of primary health care in various districts, support for the vulnerable and provision of access to education and most of which were implemented under the leadership of the outgoing Commissioner.

Rev Sumaili has since wished Commissioner Siamoya God’s Guidance as she takes up her new role in Kenya in representing the Salvation Army and Zambia as a whole.

And Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ) Executive Director Karen Sichinga commended Commissioner Siamoya for her dedication to God’s work and the role she played in decision making as regards to the running of the Church and the Association.

Meanwhile, Outgoing Salvation Army Zambia Territory Commander, Commissioner Siamoya stated that her Church has continued to uphold its policy of working with the Government of the day since its inception and urged the Church to remain united.

    • Ms Ministers the church recently attempted to lead a national dialogue + promote national moral values but your PF showered them with disparaging comments and insults. I do not understand why the honourable has not guided the pf camp to stop insulting the church.

    • What a waste of taxpayers’ money in a poor country!
      What exactly are national values?
      Polygamy, theft, oppression of women, early child marriages, vimbuza, nyau, mashishi, tribalism and slavery?

    • Charity begins at home! How about Leaders Leading by example? Let the minister preach to PF which is the source of confusion and lawlessness! Ubomba Mwibala is also a value!

  2. What are our national values? What values are in honouring Kanene and Youngson? Did Youngson behavior represent what this nation stand for or Kanenes behavior? I need your guidance madam Sumaili? Practice what you preach

  3. Why is religion only identified with the one brought by the colonialists? Are we that mentally enslaved? Church Church Church! Show me somewhere where the church has led to progress. Africans should stop believing only foreign religious salvation can help them progress. Every civilization that has progressed has relied on itself

  5. Christianity is a dead Religion! It’s not different from other religions! What is common with Religions is the wrong notion of wanting to go to heaven! In Islam, there is the promise of 10 virgins for example and we know Islam is an offshoot of Christianity! Jesus the Christ never preached Christianity! When He started His Ministry on earth, ALL He preached was THE Restoration of God’s KINGDOM on earth which Adam and Eve lost to Lucifer – Repent for the Kingdom of God has come were His first words! Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Kingdom of God on Domain Earth! Heaven is not Man’s home but the New Earth! The Bible teaching is about a Great King and His Kingdom! The difference between Religion and Kingdom is that Religion creates cowards who just want to escape to some…

  6. The difference between Religion and Kingdom is that Religion creates cowards who just want to escape to some wishful Utopian world while Kingdom Consciousness teaches you to be courageous and conquer new territories! This is the reason why Christian Nations tend to be poor and less innovative than Kingdom nations! Christianity is not of Christ and is a Religion of Deception at Odds with Bible Teaching! That is the reason why Christian is broken up into a confusion of too many Denominations that are impossible to unite!

  8. Religion is man-made, an attempt by man to reach out to God and is founded on traditions and rules of men! The Kingdom of God is God reaching out to man and is founded on the Constitution of the Kingdom which is the Bible which contains the Precepts, Statutes and Commandments for Kingdom-living! Thou shall have no other gods, and yet your leaders worship money! No one can save two masters! Thou shall not worship idols, you have leaders who have made corruption their idol! Do not take the name of God in vain, you say you are a nation after God and yet there are no godly acts and you even put up a show in the name of the national day of prayers? People have been killed in unexplained circumstances, not even a word to condemn that? Do not steal and yet the national motto now is Ubomba…

  9. You do not trust the church to monitor the dialogue but you want them to see to other things. Do some work mama instead of getting paid for a title, you in fact are stealing from us the tax payers in the name of religion.
