UCZ calls for issue-based campaigns

General News UCZ calls for issue-based campaigns

The United Church of Zambia (UCZ) has cautioned Zambians against falling prey to politics of violence and division ahead of the August 12, 2021 general elections

Speaking to ZANIS in Kasama, UCZ General Secretary Chipasha Musaba said electorates have a responsibility to reject all forms of political activity that breach the country’s peace.

Rev. Musaba, who was flanked by UCZ Synod Bishop Sydney Sichilima and other regional bishops, noted that politicians should be counseled against perpetrating violence as they try to persuade voters to elect them on the August polls.

“We must recognize that these politicians are actually our sons and daughters, they should not divide us. We should actually take the privilege to counsel them,” Rev. Musaba said

He further implored politicians to tame their respective supporters and ensure that they engage in issue based campaigns.

“As campaigns begin, we expect politicians to tame their respective supporters and cadres, let them inform people what they want to do for them. Politics should not divide the people of God,” he said.

Rev. Musaba noted that political campaigns should be used to inform the public of specific development ideas unlike propagating anarchy.

  1. This is the same UCZ that gratefully accepted the “empowerment” from Lungu; so much for non-partisanship! Shame on you!

  2. Did they get the loot from the Minister of finance these. There has been violence in Zambia for the past 10 years. PF has been killing people directly and indirectly.

    There is no peace in Zambia!
    Am glad you have found your voice! Use it wisely?!

  3. UCZ is one of the churches which is easy to dribble by politicians due to their various on going projects when it comes to fund raising they easily get caught up in the web.
