Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs, Godfridah Sumaili has called on the church to continue praying for the peace in the nation ahead of the general elections slated for August this year.
Reverend Sumaili said the Church needs to intervene on behalf of the entire nation, and ensure that peace prevails, as the nation heads to the polls on August 12, 2021.
She however expressed gratitude to the church for their continued prayers for the nation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
She said Zambia is a Christian nation and that fruits of wickedness will not prevail, for as long as everyone remains united and seeks God’s guidance, peace and protection.
“We are praying for a bloodshed and violence free election. We are going to the polls knowing that God is the one who chooses leaders, so we shall accept whoever wins”, she said.
Mrs. Sumaili said the government respects the will of the Zambian people and will accept whoever IS chosen as President, in the forthcoming elections.
She said this during a meeting held with the Lusaka Pastors Fellowship at the Evangelical Christian Centre this morning.
Speaking during the same meeting, Lusaka Pastors Fellowship Chairperson Christopher Kabunda explained that the church is a beacon of peace and will not be used by any politician to foster agendas that compromise the peace of the country.
He said the church will continue asking God for guidance on matters relating to the leadership of the country based on the fruits of godliness as guided in the word of God.
Mr Kabunda noted that the church remains non-partisan, but will guide the nation as this is the role of the clergy.
Meanwhile, Mr Kabunda expressed gratitude to government for launching an empowerment program for the church and the clergy.
Government through the Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs launched the Religious and Faith Based Organizations Empowerment scheme that is aimed at empowering churches and their charity work.
This will be done through cooperatives using rotation funds, given as grants through the church mother bodies.
So… “Mr Kabunda noted that the church remains non-partisan, but will guide the nation as this is the role of the clergy.” I really haven’t seen any serious guiding to talk about but rather aiding and abetting of the PF in attempts to perpetuate their kleptomaniac hold on power and abuse the opposition and the hapless, desperate masses. Then again, this probably explains the lack of genuine, non-partisan guidance …..”Meanwhile, Mr Kabunda expressed gratitude to government for launching an empowerment program for the church and the clergy.” As long as this “empowerment” is flowing, the clergy will continue talking from the side of their mouths while busy chewing!
Where was Minister Sumaili when ZPS committed wickedness by shooting dead Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda recently? As Minister of Religious Affairs what has Rev Sumaili done about the murdering of these two victims? What guarantee is there that ZPS will not repeat these Murders in this Election Season? Kampyongo and Lusambo were implicated in these Shootings and Murders. What has Minister Sumaili done to have Kampyongo and Lusambo prosecuted? Absolutely nothing. Doesn’t Sumaili know that faith without works is futile. The families of Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda are crying out for Justice but the PF Govt in which she is a Cabinet Minister has done nothing. With the Panga Family in charge the 2021 Elections are likely to be violent and disputed. The writing is on the wall.
PEACE ???????????? HONESTLY PRAYING TO GOD WILL IT HELP ????????????
HE HAS MORE PRESSING PROBLEMS THAN A BROKEN ZAMBIA
One of the most useless ministers the country has. She very well know who is responsible for the violence but she is busy telling lies about christian nation and church uniting people. Pray for this and pray for that. God, were did the Zambian people go wrong? Politics of religion and the belly!
The wolves in sheep’s clothing are talking…..
Dull woman. Useless ministry
What a dubious and spineless Religious Minister! Sumaili is calling for Peaceful Elections in 2021. Where was she when on 23rd December 2020 Nsama Nsama Joseph Kaunda were shot dead by ZPS Paratroopers? The families of the victims are crying for help and Justice. What is Minister Sumaili doing when her Govt is committing crimes against humanity? As we approach the Crucial August 12,2021 Elections what is Sumaili doing to ensure 2021 Elections will be free,fair,credible and peaceful? Prayers without works are futile.
This woman of God honestly knows that her party PF habours criminals and thieves under ECL watch waiting to explored any minute . God forbid
WEC CALL FOR A LIVE POLITICAL DEBATE ON NATIONAL RADIO AND TV
AND LETS US THE PEOPLE DECIDE WHO WE WANT
BRING IT ON PFF WE WAITING
Pf believes in peace whilst upnd are violent thugs. Just see the comments above which proves this. So how do we deal with violent thugs? Well that is why we have police. The police will firmly deal with this thugs. They only understand punches and kicks in the head. We are ready for them
This is clearly a useless ministry wasting taxpayers funds
BA upnd diasporans why are you concerned about Zambia? You should be more concerned about the racism there in UK and abroad. In fact we would like to let harry and Meghan know that they are always welcome to move to Zambia. We will provide housing and all support required. We will welcome here before we welcome any upnd diasporans
WOW,it is said that,” keep your mouth closed and people won’t know you are a fool, but the moment you open your mouth,all the doubts are cleared”. In light of this,I NOW know why the 3 three Church Mother Bodies stopped being vocal on issue affecting the people.The empowerment scheme done by Government through the Three Church Mother Bodies! Ooh! Finish, hypocrisy at its best. Money answers all things……
Zambia too has tribalism too especially during its elections.Don’t act as if only UK has racism mtu mjinga wewe.
God is about to slap some leaders in Zambia,I mean very soon.
Madam Sumaili,God is never mocked,for what a man soweth so he shall reap.Your time of reckoning is coming.
WHAT YOU SOW YOU REAP QUITE RIGHT
ALSO AN EYE FOR AN EYE
SO WATCH WHAT YOU SAY
ALSO IN YOUR BIBLE LIVE BY THE SWORD DIE BY THE SWORD
HERE ENDETH TODAYS SERMON
UPND has the capabilities in creating destruction in the country. We must beware of them and continuously pray to God. Amen!!!
Even today UPND members are debating on President Lungu’s eligibility. They are claiming that the President is in the second term and refused the Court’s order which clearly stated that President is eligible to contest the August elections.
Zambia is a peaceful country and we won’t allow the opposition to damage its peace.
We are sure that UPND will do the cheap stunts to get publicity. They won’t leave any opportunity to target PF with lies.
The media has the potential to damage Zambia’s peace. It can provoke people to fight and create riots across the country. We must ban few media houses that are only spreading lies.
Hichilema is taking advantage of media, he is using it to spread fake videos, photos, and stories to damage PF. We should not fall into his dirty political tarp.
God always listens to our prayers and keeps evil people away from the nation. That is why HH never won in any elections even after trying so hard for the past many years. We are glad that the country is in the safest hands.
Indeed, the church is a beacon of peace and will not be used by UPND to foster agendas that compromise the peace of the nation.
PF is ruling this country for almost 10 years now, they worked really hard and earned our trust. Hichilema cannot break it through his lies. ECL beyond 2021.
Before Hichilema, UPND also was a peaceful party but when HH joined the party as a President, the whole image is changed. UPND has now become the most violent and criminal party. Hence, it is drowning.
UPND IS HERE TO STAY WITH YOUR BLESSING OR WITHOUT
56 YEARS AND STILL IN JUNK STATUS WITH A DEBT THAT WILL TAKE ANOTHER 56 YEARS TO CLEAR
PFF IS GOING TO THE GRAVE
It is hard to be relevant when you are not. Not a single word from the reverend mother when Nsama and Kaunda were shot by the police, Not a single word when the judiciary are accused of being bribed.
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE ON RADIO AND TV
COME ON PF WHATS THE PROBLEM
WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE TO LISTEN TO THE ASPIRING CANDIDATES
NOT THE LIES YOU PUT ON HERE !!!!!!!!!!
@Bisake, John, Joshua, Lucas, Chitunga, Peter, Faith, Rita, Mery and Paul, kikikiki!
Wonderful woman who has nothing to say or do but is gainfully employed. Such an employer can’t be serious.
