And the former ruling party has called on the church to step in and pray for the nation so that the excessive spilling of blood in the country can be stopped.
In a statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today, MMD President Nevers Mumba said the continued loss of lives through accidents is a spiritual battle between good and evil which he said must be stopped.
He noted that the church must pray to stop the evil which he said seems to be demanding for more blood.
Dr. Mumba wished the affected family members God’s strength during this period stating that any untimely loss of life is a subtraction from the commonwealth nations which he said leaves a great deficit.
“The MMD grieves with the families and all Zambians on the tragic death of fifty passengers on the Post bus which was headed for Lusaka this morning. Our prayers reach out to all affected family members, and wish them God’s strength during this difficult hour,”stated Dr. Mumba
Yesterday, a passenger post bus headed for Lusaka from Copperbelt was involved in an accident around Chibombo area where over 50 people died on the spot while several others sustained injuries.
