In President Lungu, we have a leadership which fears God and has foresight-Kapata

Share

PATRIOTIC Front running mate campaign team member and Kasenengwa former lawmaker Hon. Sensio Banda says President Edgar Lungu cherishes and recognizes the partnership between the church and Government.

Speaking when he and the running mate deputy campaign manager Hon. Jean Kapata met the Kapiri Mposhi Pastors Fellowship council, Hon. Banda said the church plays a critical role in the governance of the country.

He said it was the wish of President Lungu to have the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation reaffirmed in the constitution through the amendment Bill 10 but that the opposition UPND shot it down.

“President Lungu cherishes and recognizes the partnership between the church and Government. The church is critical in the development of the church,” Hon. Banda said.

“Bill 10 would have reaffirmed Zambia as a Christian nation in the constitution but the opposition UPND shot down the Bill 10 in parliament, they rejected it because they have intentions to turn Zambia into a circular state and do away with Christian principles,” He said.

Hon. Banda said President Lungu recognizes that God should be the center of the country.

“Declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation is holding the country together, and the country would have gone to its worst. We can have challenges but God is holding the center of this nation,” He said.

And Hon. Banda told the clergy that President Edgar Lungu has delivered in all sectors of the economy and has a proven record.

“We have a leadership which fears God and has foresight. We have a party Manifesto that gives directions to where the party is taking the country. The UPND has amended their Manifesto three times including copy and pasting the Jamaican Manifesto, they are not reliable because all they do is to perpetuate lies but the PF is dealing with reality,” Hon. Banda Banda.

Meanwhile, Pastor Msoni, the Kapiri Mposhi Pastors Fellowship Chairperson thanked President Lungu for the befitting national funeral and burial of late founding father Dr. Kenneth Kaunda.

Pastor Msoni said it is the wish of the church for the country to have peaceful elections.

“The Church in Kapiri Mposhi condemns violence, hate speech and tribal remarks that may plunge the country into chaos. Political parties should conduct peaceful campaigns,” Pastor Msoni said.

And PF running mate deputy campaign manager Hon. Jean Kapata urged the church to help the Government combat the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.

Hon. Kapata said the church should always take time to educate their congregants about the Covid-19 health guidelines.

She said it the wish of President Edgar Lungu to have a healthy nation.

” President Lungu has kept the wheels of the economy running in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic because he cares for the people of Zambia. The opposition UPND was in the forefront calling for the total shutdown of the economy through the closure of borders because they don’t care about the country, ” Hon. Kapata said.

  3. KAUNDA (MHSRIEP) RULED ZAMBIA PEACEFULLY WITHOUT CHRISTIAN DECLARATIONS FOR 27 YRS. WHY DO YOU WANT TO PAINT PF AS A CHRISTIAN PARTY AND THE REST AS NON-CHRISTIAN? BILL 10 WAS REJECTED BECAUSE IT HAD MANY EVIL PLANS SUCH GOVT FUNDING POLITICAL PARTIES, MINISTERS CONTINUING IN THEIR PORTFOLIOS DURING GENERAL ELECTIONS, BRINGING BACK D/MINISTERS, AND OTHER NONSENSE INSTEAD OF EXPLAINING WHY ELECTRICITY IS SO EXPENSIVE, WHY PROTEIN SOURCES OF FOOD SUCH AS MEAT, CHICKEN, MILK AND OTHER ARE SO EXPENSIVE AND OTHER RELEVANT ISSUES. HONESTLY HOW CAN A DEAD BILL 10 BE A CAMPAIGN ISSUE FOR A LIVING POLITICAL PARTY?

  4. This is problem with mediocre leaders, such issues as God must even be surfacing to hoodwink people to believe that the president is good because alatina Lesa, that is rubbish we want a leader who is responsible and able to guide the nation to prosperity. Who is not scared or afraid of God anyway, these are shallow manoeuvres aimed at deceiving the gullible into voting for Lungu. Instead preaching about the manifesto you are talking fearing God. We all know president Lungu is very nice and good man but he has failed to run the affairs of the country, he has strayed and lost control of the ship.

  6. The partnership of PF and some churches in Zambia is a business partnership, a partnership to share corruption benefits. It has nothing to do with God ,the Almighty. It is a partnership of evil. These churches predominantly operate in urban areas and can not be found in Zambia’s rural areas. Why? Power and money are in urban areas esp. in Lusaka. Being a member of these shouting churches that hypocritically praise corrupt PF politicians is a straight and direct road to hell.

  7. I don’t blame them for saying that
    As they are eating from the same
    Bowl.continue as it is campaign time.Zambians can see for themselves.

  8. I surely understand that Edgar China Lungu fears God: when he gets to the Pearly Gates, he will be sent to HELL!

  9. @Tikki, Lungu mistakes us for his farm workers. As it stands he is suppose to be attending job interviews for the presidency in the form of presidential debates. So that we can determine who can deliver value in exchange for free accommodation a plot 1, food and expensive beers, tissue, security etc.

  10. Yes foresight is borrowing recklessly and corruption……..there lungu is number one.

    God fearing…….only to dupe the ignorant. Lungu is one theif who knows how useful religion is as a tool to dupe and controll the ignorant masses ……..

  11. Ba …..Colour; sorry repeating your name would be aiding an insult. I think LT needed to moderate your comment or at best erase it. You can do better than insult like that!

  12. Stop blaspheming God madam Kapata. The the fear of God is revealed in keeping of His commandments. This Lungu admin is far from that. How many innocent citizens have been murdered without justice? The gassing of the innocent, the the rampart corruption, trabalism, election thefts, the list is unending. Is this what you call God fearing? The time will come when each of these crimes will be accounted on someone then we will know who was God fearing.
