Government working hard in inculcating positive cultural values in its citizens-Sumaili

General News Government working hard in inculcating positive cultural values in its citizens-Sumaili

Minister of National Guidance and Religious affairs Hon. Rev. Mrs Godfridah Sumaili says government is working hard in inculcating positive cultural values in its citizens.

Speaking this morning during the launch of the National Guidance and Religious Affairs policy, implementation plan and service delivery charter Rev. Sumaili said government is working hard in ensuring that its people uphold good national values and positive cultures such as respect, hard-work, honesty, good neighbourliness, teamwork and patriotism, as a way of developing the country.

Rev. Sumaili said Zambians should refrain from copying negative cultures that are contrary to the national traditions and religious cultures.
She said the culture of insults and disrespect should be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians.

The Minister noted that the policy seeks to transform people’s mindsets, attitudes and behaviours in order to enhance socio-economic development and reverse the social ills affecting the country.

She added that the policy will further guide the nation in the inculcation and application of the country’s shared values drawn from the constitution, the vision 2030 and the seventh national development plan, under the strategic area “creating a conducive government environment for a diversified and inclusive economy”.

Rev. Sumaili said the policy will among other things address several key challenges that negatively affect the achievement of Zambia’s developmental objectives, as enshrined in the seventh national development plan (7NDP).

Meanwhile Rev. Sumaili explained that the client service delivery charter was developed to outline the principles and ethics that will guide the ministry in the execution of its mandate efficiently.

She added that the charter was developed in the context of government’s strategy for enhancing the quality of service delivery in government institutions.
The Minister further thanked all stakeholders that took part during the consultative process and have continued to offer support to the ministry.

  1. Yes mum. We thank you for your hard work in this area. The president and myself acknowledge that it is tough when you have bad mannered opposition funding youths to be disrespectful and cause chaos. They are desperate to win elections.

  2. Yeah! Positive cultural values like beating & locking up those that speak up against your voracious appetite for corruption, illegally trading in Mukula, awarding contracts worth Millions of U$ Dollars to non existent firms, gass!ng innocent citizens, burning markets, & attempting to frame the opposition & still flouting the law by FLATLY REFUSING to pay back Cash illegally drawn after the dissolution of Parliament, despite the Supreme Court -(highest Court in the land) directing you pay back!!
    Ya, ya, ya!! We know you thieving G00n’s.
    Lastly P.F.MUSTGO!!

  3. No. The Ministry of Religious Affairs and National Guidance is a ministry that shouldn’t exist. What happened to the separation of church and state? Countries should be secular so that all people can have equal rights. You can’t legislate morals! And also, are you a real person? Because with all the comments you post on articles on this site, you have the wooden and obvious fake enthusiastic tone of a professional troll, thereby, you’re probably a professional troll.

  4. Your fellow Reverend Mai Busa has a sex tape circulating on shosho media having live dodalling with a man who is not her husband. And you come out here talking about good morals.

  5. Thank you our spiritual mother!

    We need as Zambians to wrestle back from the negative cultures brought in by opposition groups especially UPND. All disrespectful, divisive behaviours must be broken. We need to be a peaceful country no matter our differences. Multi-party politics is foreign to us, but an evil we can take.

  6. Multi-party politics is foreign to us, but an evil we can TAME!!

  7. It’s a waste of time ad money paying u as a minister doing nothing, jst preaching irrelevant, while the Zambians people hv no jobs ad staving. Useless

  8. You first have to clean the inside of the cup before focusing on the outer part. This campaign is great but it has to start with PF as a Party. Just the other day, I went to buy fruits and vegetables from Soweto market and what I witnessed was appalling. A dozen of PF youths in PF regalia were marching in the middle of the road and demanding motorists to give way! 54 years of Independence and we are condoning this kind of nonsense. What culture is PF inculcating?
