Fr. Laston Lupupa should unreservedly apologize to Zambians for abusing the pulpit-Kangwa Chileshe

General News Fr. Laston Lupupa should unreservedly apologize to Zambians for abusing the pulpit-Kangwa...

Catholic Priest, Fr. Laston Lupupa should unreservedly apologize to Zambians for abusing the pulpit to propagate the agenda of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), says UPND Religious Affairs Committee Deputy Chairperson for Politics, Pastor Kangwa Chileshe.

In a recent video that has drawn widespread condemnation from the Church, academia and the general public, Fr. Lupupa is heard telling a church gathering that “it is better to rig elections (12th August, 2021) than to allow someone (HH) to form government”.

And Pastor Kangwa, who says he has great respect for the Catholic Church, lambasted Fr. Lupupa for desecrating the Word of God and for failing to stick to his fatherly role of preaching peace, love, unity and co-existence

“As a Priest; as a clergy man…his is supposed to be a fatherly role…one of uniting the country; one of preaching love, unity and one of preaching dialogue and reconciliation. It is sad that Fr. Lupupa has chosen to abuse the pulpit to preach words that are inflamable,” stated Pst. Kangwa.

Meanwhile, Kangwa, a who wondered whether Fr. Lupupa’s insinuations and attacks on the Constitution was a result of the excitement euphoria that usually characterise sermons from congregants, asked him to retract his statement and apologize to Zambians.

“Sometimes, preaching and people apllauding creates euphoria but we are hoping that the Father will retract his statement and not cause divisions as Zambia belongs to all of us. Therefore, we pray that the Father will retract his statement, ” he said.

  1. The “Patriotic Father” of the conman government has probably been selling them indulgences and baptisms. It might not come as no surprise its conmen like this blessing all the PF criminal elements.

  3. Pst Kangwa stop disgracing yourself,why are you behaving as if you don’t read your Bible! Every leader goes through preparation in the bible will have the likes of Moses,David and Joseph who went through a lot,Pst Kangwa you know very well that God does not look at the outward appearance of a Man but the heart. By the way the even mentioned name of a political party or leader he gave an example of the late President Michael Chilufya Sata so what is your problem…

    • Statement like this makes me miss our stone age. I see that technology has done more bad than good. you are given an opportunity to give proper guidance then you go ahead wasting your bundles to write irrelevant issues. Party or no Party the priest was not in line. Use your hard earned bundles for something tangibles even googling some nzelu like self learning pliz.

  4. Although Fr Lupupa misused the Pulpit he has sent a message to all Zambians: ECL and PF will rig the August 12,2021. Another PF Cadre Lawrence Evans has revealed how ECZ is Rigging the August Elections thru a Manipulatived Voters Roll which has disenfranchised many people especially in the perceived HH’s strongholds. ECL has appointed Justice Chitabo to Concourt to dismiss any Petition against ECL Nomination for a Third Term. After the Elections,Chitabo and Concourt will dismiss HH’s Presidential Petition should he file one. ECL has resolved to rig the 2021 Elections in his favour and thru ECZ and Concourt. Will History repeat itself in Zambia? August 12,2021 will provide the answer to this question.

  5. Opposition Parties in Zambia should’nt shoot the Messenger. They should read the Message that ECL and PF has sent to the Nation thru Fr Lupupa. ECL and PF are convinced that they cannot win the August 12,2021 Elections thru a Popular vote so they are going to rig the Elections in their favour.They have revealed that the Elections are being rigged thru ECZ and Concourt. ECZ has manipulated the Voters Roll in favour of ECL in their strongholds and has disenfranchised voters in HH’s Strongholds. Concourt has been strengthened by ECL appointing Chitabo, first to dismiss any Petition challenging ECL Nomination and later the Presidential Petition if HH files one. These are ECL’s Election Rigging Plans in 2021. What can HH and other Opposition Parties in Zambia do to counter these Elecrion…

    • Fr Lupupa has done the Nation a favour. He has revealed that ECL has resolved to Rig the Elections on August 12. Lawrence Evans has described how ECZ is rigging the Elections thru a “doctored ” Voters Roll. The appointment to Concourt of Justice Chitabo point to a biased Court which will approve ECL’s Third Term and dismiss the 2021 Presidential Petition if any. These are ECL’s Election Rigging Plans so what will the Opposition do to prevent the planned Election Rigging?

  8. Have just seen a video of him apologising and asking for forgiveness ,yet PF cadres want to keep pouring gasoline on a fire we want to quench off.

  9. So the upnd criticize us for having a ministry of religious affairs and yet they have a committee for religion in their rotten evil party. Do you see how hypocritical these bush hyenas are. The upnd will never win an election. Why would we rig elections against a party that has been losing even since before pf was created. Hahaha

  10. Lupupa spoke his preference. Also, he hinted on rigging in that purported recording. Begin to focus on how the rigging can be prevented. Stop living in the past. Anakamba vinapita. I doubt what he said is even prosecutable.

  11. Can whoever posted the short clip provide a video of the whole sermon so that the clip can be fully contextualised. This reminds me of the statement that Mbeki made on HIV not being the cause of Aids. The media took that statement forgetting about the context in which the statement was made. Another case was when Jacob Zima in his infamous rape trial said he took a shower after having sex with an HIV positive woman. Media put out those statements and everybody discussed them and formed opinions on statements that had no context.

  12. Bishop Mambo, Telesphore Mpundu and father Chikoya do the same thing and no one says anything. Be objective and not selective in your criticism. He also didn’t mention any names and these others have spewed venom by name so please spare us and father Lupupa. He hadn’t done anything wrong.

  13. Fr Lupupa has apologized now we’re waiting for all those that insulted him to withdraw their insults. But we know that in that political party there’s no apology. What the UPND should worry about isn’t what Fr Lupupa said but rather their response. The amount of venom that has continued to pour from UPND circles can overspill the Kariba dam. It’s Party field with hatred and insolent

    • Now that he has apologised, make sure you prepare some antidote for his rigging suggestion, after polling comes to a close at 18 hours it will be your duty to ensure that your vote is counted and announced according to how you voted,

  14. Fr Lupupa has been forced to apologize for revealing that ECL and PF will win the August 2021 Elections by rigging but that is the truth. ECL rightly recognises that he cannot win and retain power without Election Rigging. Key to his Election Rigging Plan is ECZ and Zambia Concourt. ECZ has already manipulated the New Voters Roll to ensure that that ECL wins the August 12 Election. Lawrence Evans has already revealed the Plan. The appointment of Justice Matabo to Court is to ensure that Concourt will approve ECL’s Third Term Eligibility. Concourt is also geared to dismiss any Presidential Petition should it be filed after after the Election is rigged on August 12,2021. HH and other Opposition Parties should prepare to protect the 2021 Vote otherwise ECL and PF will steal the…

  15. If in power, will UPND tolerate any admonition by the Catholic Church or any other church, looking at their anger vent at Father Lupupa’s wise counsel? I think Zambians are the best judges. At least PF has received its fair judgment for tolerating Bishop John Mambo, Father Telespho Mpundu and even elements like Seer 1.

  16. @Ayatollah, why should people apologise?!? He says he was advised by the Catholic Church Leadership to do so. Is he being sincere?!? The Catholic Church is washing its hands off of him because of its history – as recent as Rwanda(do not forget). These men of the cloth sure! My faith is me, mine and myself! And no, I am not UPND!

  17. Now that he has apologised, make sure you prepare some antidote for his rigging suggestion, after polling comes to a close at 18 hours it will be your duty to ensure that your vote is counted and announced according to how you voted,
