We are all products of other people’s sacrifices and good will. The ultimate goal of every parent is to protect his offspring and create opportunities for that offspring to excel and do better than the parent himself.

Today, I have the privilege of celebrating my 59th birthday. With God’s help, I shall turn 60 in twelve months from now. God has been good to me through the darkest hours of my life. I owe Him my all. He has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Florence and five amazing children, Shumo-El, Tehillah, Ye-hoshua, Mica-El, Natasha and three grandchildren. But He has also blessed me with multiplied thousands of spiritual sons and daughters both in Zambia and around the world.

I choose to celebrate my birthday and transition to my 60th birthday by lending a hand to the next generation of leaders both in the church and politics. Those who have the dream and the passion to lead but cannot see the ‘bridge’ to take them there. My role shall be to help someone realize their dream by opening doors they may never be able to open on their own.
My mission is to create opportunities for the gifted and passionate young people in the two fields of Church and Politics.

Peter in the scriptures said, “Silver and Gold have I none but such as I have, I give unto you.” Give opportunities for others to succeed.

In 1981, my Pastor Gary Skinner asked me to serve as Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke’s interpreter in the Kitwe Crusade. During one of the services as I interpreted, Reinhard interrupted himself and looked at me and said, “You are made out of the same stuff that I am made out of.” From that day, he took me as his project. He decided to act as a bridge to my future. He decided to give me a leg up. He spoke to Mrs Gordon Lindsay, President of Christ For the Nations in Dallas, Texas and recommended that I be enrolled as a Bible student. This singular move changed my life forever.

Our young people need someone to speak for them to someone or to help them cross a hazardous river. I implore all fathers in every field to look for opportunities to push the younger generation ahead of us. They represent our faith and our aspirations. They are the letters we write to generations we shall never see. They are our arrows into the future. Their failure would be our failure and that of Zambia and Africa as a whole.

I asked the Lord how I should celebrate my 59th birthday. I believe the Lord wants me to actively help create opportunities for the next generation of leaders, both in Church and Politics.

To celebrate this birthday, I have organized three Special scholarships at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas. I am happy that these three young people who have already been offered shall join the more than fifty of my sons and daughters in the Lord who have already gone through this great college.

I wish to thank the Lord for his love and mercy. I further wish to thank my dear wife, family, friends and the Victory Ministries family who continue to stand with me through the fiery furnace of the struggle for a better Zambia and Africa.

A special mention to my indomitable Movement for Multiparty Democracy Party leaders and membership who have made this journey memorable. I salute all Zambians who have created the environment for my service to my God and my Nation. Thank you.

(We shall soon place a link on our Facebook for the young people to get in touch with us).

Zambia Shall Be Saved!

    • I can only wish Sekwila a happy birthday and Godspeed in all endeavors! To err is human. What matters the more is realizing our human flaws and resetting oneself for an impactful ending. There’s no conjecture and no more questions to be asked. You are free Kalebalika.

  2. Religion was this man’s downfall. In the same way that religion is Africa’s weakness and reason for being so behind in all areas of economic development indicators. Religion limits ones ability to be objective in both thinking and decision making. We in upnd should aim to get rid of that Christianity clause put in our constitution by a thief who is partly to blame for the predicament we find ourselves in. Why should Christianity be given special treatment in a country that not only has a diverse ethnic make up but religious and racial too. Let us move on from religion, which the same Europeans brought but don’t actually follow themselves

    • All great nations were belt on strong foundation of religion. So Africa should not throw away Christianity. Europe has just backsliden

    • That is where UPND misses it, and do not be surprised if a lot of Zambians refuse to vote for you. Instead of coming up with strategies on how to make the Christiannation more practical and accountable you focus on things that are aimed on confirming the ongoing propaganda against you of strange religions.

    • New zambia you are confirming to my narrative above. As I said religious people like you who are closed minded can never view anything objectively. Anything that opposses your views is classed as evil and satanic. It is unfortunate many Zambian think like you and cannot engage in meaningful debate and discussion without hiding behind religion to try and shield their ignorance.

  6. Happy birthday Nevers. You are a truly gifted man but your main weakness and obstacle to greater things has been your perceived arrogance and your belief that you are created to lead and others are created just to follow you.Try the other way and you will be a happier and greater person.
