Honest leaders won’t contravene scripture-President Hichilema

General News Honest leaders won’t contravene scripture-President Hichilema

President Hakainde Hichilema has reiterated his determination to appoint capable and honest men, women and the youths for positions of leadership in society.

President Hichilema based his statement on Exodus 18:21 that calls for the selection of capable honest men who fear God and hate bribes.

This is a post he posted on his official Facebook page.

“But select from all the people some capable, honest men who fear God and hate bribes. Appoint them as leaders over groups of one thousand, one hundred, fifty, and ten. Exodus 18:21,” President Hichilema quoted the Bible.

While referring to the Bible, Mr. Hichilema said the scriptures will not be contravened if capable, honest women and youth are added among those that qualify for leadership roles in society.

“We believe this scripture will not be contravened if we include capable honest women and the youth, among those that qualify for leadership roles in our non-discriminatory society,” he stated.

President Hichilema has been a strong advocate of appointing people of good morals, values and integrity to positions of leadership.

In the same Facebook post, President Hichilema wished the public a happy Sunday worship and God’s blessings.

“Good morning fellow Zambians and have a happy Sunday worship. God bless you and may He bless the Republic of Zambia,” he said.

  1. Disappointing enough even church leaders contravene the scriptures. Just look at the scandals like child molestation, misappropriation of funds, adultery too many to mention.

  2. This is exactly why Edgar China Lungu was such a hypocrite. Lots of quotes from the bible, but he trespassed every single one of the ten commandments!

  3. Honest leaders are those who don’t contravene Zambian anti graft laws.Bwana HH not every leader/technocrat is a believer in scripture.

  4. ITS EARLY DAY^S STILL
    BUT I’M BEGINNING TO THINK HE OBSESSED BY THE BIBLE
    THE ONLY WORTH WHILE THING ARE THE 10 COMMANDMENTS WHICH LIKE THE ROAD HIGHWAY CODE
    AND A WAY TO LIVE A DECENT LIFE
    THE OTHER STORIES ARE IRRELLEVANT

  5. Very childish and under 5 leadership. Who makes announcements on Sunday, on a day of rest as president? Just because he is SDA, doesn’t mean he shouldn’t respect others whose sabbath is on Sunday. Very arrogant guy hh.

    And to the guys who robbed me at chita Lodge, all my goods are protected by traditional medicine. You will soon start losing your close family members one by one until you return my goods. You dogs

  9. #8 Kachasu exactly….. defending PF resulted in misery and you are doing the same. You want to butter coat mistakes.

  10. #9 Deja Vu. The new mantra for whoever crtitises is “Why were you quiet during PF?” or something on those lines.

  11. Too much scripture. I’m kind of getting tired of it. You can have morals without relying too much on the “scripture business”. Hey, after all, Christianity is western and not really African. It was imposed on us.

  12. @Kachasu
    Have you noticed that even UPND die hards…my brother Spaka and Tarino Orange are now slowly losing hope…this is not what they expected…even the firing of Army Generals and Kanganja etc….that was pure vengeance…and no wonder Africa doesn’t develop….so it will be just a bunch of new but same old individuals again eating from where they left from…eg Musokotwane and Kajoba Remmy
