–Luangwa District Commissioner, Eunie Mumba, has called on public service workers to be committed to duty even as they mourn President Michael
Chilufya Sata while the Church has called on the people to emulate the late President Sata’s life of serving and improving the country.
Mr Mumba made the call when he addressed heads of government institutions in his office, saying they should remain dedicated to duty even this time when the country was mourning President Sata.
He cautioned public service workers not to be used by politicians or to involve themselves in partisan politics as this will have a negative impact on their execution of duties.
The District Commissioner said public service workers should continue working hard and implement the good policies of the PF government even when the country was mourning.
Meanwhile, the Church in Luangwa district has called on the people in the area to embrace the developments that the late President Sata has done for the district and also to emulate him in seeing that the country continues to develop.
Religious Ministers from different Churches, who have come up with a programme of praying for peace and stability in the country from the time President Sata’s death was announced, urged the people to embrace the developments that have come to the district.
In their sermons which begun on Friday, the religious ministers appealed to all the people to continue praying to the Almighty God to give the country another leader who will be like President Sata who has a heart for the people, especially the poor.
The men of God described the late President as a man who had a heart for the country.
Anglican Priest, Zacharias Zulu and Seventh Day Adventist Pastor, Kebby Shibeleki, described the late President Sata as a man who was dedicated to improving the wellbeing of the people using his position as President of the country and called on everyone to use whatever position they hold in society to improve the wellbeing of the country.
