United Church of Zambia (UCZ) Muchinga Presbetary Bishop Festus Chulu says politics should not be allowed to divide the Zambian people.
Bishop Chulu says there is need to promote unity in diversity in the country and continue promoting the One Zambia One nation motto. Speaking in Chinsali yesterday during a church building promotion at Chinsali UCZ main congregation, Bishop Chulu said there is need to maintain peace and unity in the country before, during and after the August 12 general election.
Bishop Chulu said every one should be involved in praying for peace in the country and that no one should be allowed to divide the country in the name of politics.
“We are all one in Christ and we should strive to uphold and promote the peace that the country is enjoying, ” said Bishop Chulu.
Bishop Chulu also called on Christians to uphold the Christian values and make Zambia a better country for everyone. Bishop Chulu further informed the congregation that wearing of political party regalia on the church grounds will not be allowed.
He said all are one in church and this is why the wearing of political party regalia will not be allowed on the church grounds as it is a source of division. And Bishop Chulu has called on youths in the country not to be used as tools of violence.
He said youths should refuse to be used as tools of violence especially during this period of political campaigns ahead of the August polls. “Am appealing to the youths to say no to violence. They should not allow anyone to use them as tools of violence, ” said Bishop Chulu.
The Bishop also called on leaders of political parties to desist from using youths in violent activities in advancing their political ambitions. And speaking at the same event, Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary Davison Mulenga said Government appreciates the significant role that the church plays in building morals in society.
Capt. Mulenga also commended and appreciated the church’s contributions to the socio-economic development of the country through various programmes that it is involved in.
Capt. Mulenga also appealed to the church to continue praying for politicians adding that the church should continue to pray for peace before, during and after the August polls.
He said that the UCZ motto of All One in Christ resonates well with the One Zambia One nation motto saying this motto has contributed greatly in the promotion of peace and unity not only in the UCZ but the entire country as a whole.
Capt. Mulenga also appealed to the church to consider what the government has done in various sectors of the economy, that includes the empowerment programmes it was giving and the massive development it has rolled out in the country in deciding who to give a vote on August 12, 2021.
The UCZ Chinsali main congregation church has embarked on the construction of a modern new church building at a cost of K2 million.
The Provincial Permanent Secretary said President Edgar Lungu in 2019 donated K150,000 to go towards the construction of the new church building.
