Clergymen in Kitwe welcome abolishment of Ministry of National guidance and Religious Affairs

General News Clergymen in Kitwe welcome abolishment of Ministry of National guidance and Religious...

The Council of Pastors and Prophets ( CPP ) has commended President Hakainde Hichilema for scrapping off the Ministry of National guidance and Religious Affairs as it was platform for bogus clergymen who syphoned public funds.

CPP spokesperson Bernard Katongo says the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation enshrined in the Republican Constitution and the people’s compliance to Christian values and principles is more meaningful, than establishing the said ministry.

” Zambia will remain a Christian Nation even without this Ministry, what is important is the declaration and the enshrinement of the declaration in the Constitution, Reverend Katongo said in an interview in Kitwe.

Rev. Katongo added that through the existing church mother bodies, government can continue attending to the welfare of the church.

The CPP spokesperson, whose organisation was recently registered , further noted that a lot of bogus clergy persons set up a lot of churches without physical structures to engage in bogus activities to hoodwink unsuspecting followers with fake miracles.

“ Most of these scandals were happening among Pentecostal churches which were assumed to working with the Ministry Religious Affairs, “ he said.

He noted that despite the bogus activities and scandals occurring in most Pentecostal churches the former Ministry made little or no efforts to control the situation.

And Reverend Katongo has urged President Hakainde Hichilema’s new dawn administration to consider putting a policy that individuals intending to form churches are qualified to reduce scandalous incidences in churches.

Yesterday during the thanks giving church service for the peaceful elections at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka, President Hichilema said his administration will continue working with the church to seek guidance despite the abolishment of the Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs.


  1. Matthew 16
    23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

  2. Politics are things of men shouldn’t be mixed with things of God… just imagine corruption in Gods ministry thats blasphemy… good move bally!!!

  3. So them missed out plunder and want to portray that they are not sinners. hahaha. Give any pastor money and an object in a skirt, they will tell you God gives many chances to repent.

  4. Why not have cleagy men on the streets of our cities and town policing the people. If you sin, we cane you, if you commit adultery we cane you, insults we cane you. Thieving PEP; chop hands off. Similar to what the Taliban are trying to achieve with the Afghan people. An eye for an eye. That would be a fare society, wound’nt it be?

  5. Council of Pastors and Prophets!! Bwahahahahahaaaa. OK. OK. Aside from how ridiculous this group’s name sounds they are right about abolishing the Ministry of Religion and Affairs.
