Vice President Inonge Wina has urged Christians to preach peace and harmony among Zambians as the country heads to the 2021 general elections.
Mrs Wina said there is a need for the church, especially women to use their strategic position and let their voices of love, peace and unity be heard in the communities and across the country.
The Vice President said this when she officiated at a Christian fellowship thanksgiving for women at United Church of Zambia (UCZ) St Andrews Congregation in Woodlands area of Lusaka.
Mrs Wina counselled the church not to relent in its evangelisation and charity works as a result of the rampaging Coronavirus pandemic that has affected the globe.
The Vice President said that though Covid-19 has disrupted the country’s way of life, there is a need to rise above the challenge and uncertainty posed by the pandemic and hold on to faith.
“I must admit that Covid 19 has disrupted our lives …we have been separated” said Mrs Wina as she confessed to missing congregating with the women.
The Vice President however urged Zambians and the Women Christian Fellowship to be thankful of the many gifts and blessings that God has graciously and freely given to the country and in our lives.
Mrs Wina said Zambians must be thankful for the blessing of having a country called Zambia and God’s continued grace and providence over the country.
The Vice President challenged the Women Christian Fellowship and Christians alike to continue with evangelisation and charitable works to the vulnerable in society.
“As Christian workers,…you touch the hearts of others through your work which includes visiting the sick, the bereaved, those in prison and other vulnerable groups in our society,” said Mrs Wina.
The Vice President has since pledged K50, 000.00 to the Women’s Christian Fellowship to support their noble work at St Andrew’s congregation.
And speaking on behalf of other women from the Women Christian Fellowship, Ingrid Stratmann thanked the Vice President for the pledge as it will help them in their charity works.
Ms Stratmann appealed to the Vice President to extend government driven empowerment programmes to the church so that women can engage in productive ventures such as agriculture and livestock activities in order to improve their livelihoods.
And St Andrews Pastor in Charge Rev Lordwell Siame urged Christians not to give up on God in the midst of challenges and uncertainties but be thankful for everything
The church has got difficulties to continue with its charity work because coffers are empty thanks to PF for running down our economy. People have nothing to give. Only Christian conmen the Papas are making money in the name of Jesus
But your own PF party’s political campaigns are always inherently divisive.
There will be no peace, until all Zambians have equal rights from ZP, and equal justice from likes of cadres like Simusamba.
Umwaiche Romeo Kangombe, ka youth MP from Western province, go get arrested in Muchinga province where Minister of Police Kampyongo is MP? How can the youngest MP abduct 2 grown male Zambia P.Officers??
Bo Inonge, did you forget that Romeo is your son? AWhat kind of mother is this?
How does one preach love when the playing field is not level. Cant you see that ZNBC which is run by tax payers features only PF, including public media. Have you ever heard of permits being given when that is not what the public order act demands. You are busy campaigning whilst others are not and they should be preaching love unity and peace.
Thanks to the true house of God, the Jehovahs Witnessess, no politician is allowed to go there and dump bribes the way it is with other churches of little faith. No matter your perception of them, this is true religion and I should join them.
We Zambians must come forward and oppose the party who is spreading violence in Zambia.
Our country ranked 4th as a peaceful country in Africa. Then why now the news of beating police, people, and damaging public property is on each and every news media.
What Vice President said is right… In the Bible also it is said that people should live with love, peace, and harmony. Our duty is to spreads the Bible’s thoughts!
We have got equal rights and opportunities and but UPND members and supporters spread lies and say that people are suffering a lot because of our government.
I love you my wise mother. Mrs kambwili can learn a lot from you on how to behave with class. I saw a picture of her this morning looking humble. This is what we expect. Well done police for teaching her that teku England kuno. The kambwili kids should also cut down on burgers and hit the gym like I do. That is very unhealthy look
Tired of your hypocrisy Bo Inonge and your PF. Your actions are too loud that we cant hear what you say…!!!
We have the power!!! Let’s throw corrupt candidates out from the election race by voting for the right candidate like same way we did in by-elections.
There would be no need for this advice if Edgar Lungu had shown himself to be a democrat and allowed a wide space for political views. Children always follow what goes on in the home. If the father is violent, the children grow up violent too. No such words were needed when Chiluba, Levy and RB were Presidents.
Evidence of a state sliding towards a failed state very visible. Remain in denial at your own peril. And all economic indicators in very big negative numbers even before Covid. Lwenu
Tell Jay jay, Bowman, Chandanyela, Stephen, Prisons Commissioner, to be measured in their language and preach love. You might be telling the wrong audience here. Call them to your office
They are campaigning and not allowing the opposition to do the same. They have told ZNBC and public media not to feature the opposition. Very strange democracy this one.
KZ, just admit, the lot of you in pf to apologize to Zambians for having brutalised an innocent family whose cause is your loathing of Chishimba Kambwili. Bo, Inonge Wina is should have made a statement on behalf of Zambian women for Zambia police disgracefully stripping off naked Bana Kambwili pa bantu. Mama, do not just hide behind that UCZ church uniform say something to women folk.
As long as there is no equal political play field Zambia will burn until they k ow or understand the value of peace and tolerance.
