Mansa Clergy call for peace and unity
Mansa, Nov 7/14, ZANIS——Clergymen and women in Mansa district of Luapula Province have called for peace and unity during the mourning period for the late Republican President Michael Chilufya Sata.
The call was made at UCZ St Andrews Congregation at Kapesha area during the Interdenominational Prayer meeting.
The clergy, who took turns in praying for the nation, called for peace and unity during the mourning period for the late President and beyond.
Christian Community Church Assistant Pastor, Field Ngalande, said this period of mourning should not be used for fuelling political confusion because it could disturb the focus on mourning the late President with dignity.
Pastor Ngalande called on political players to exercise restraint during this period until after the dignified burial of the late President whom he described as a gift from God who had played his role competently.
And Rev Pascal Mapoma of Church of God said Zambians should be in prayers so that God could grant the nation the grace to mourn the late President with dignity and reveal to the Zambians a successor to President Sata without creating any political confusion in the process.
Rev Mapoma said Zambians should pray for a peaceful transition so that there could be continuity of developmental projects aimed at uplifting the living standards of the people.
He said every Zambian would have loved President Sata to have been given more time to see most his developmental projects completed but God’s call has no challenger and His decisions have no legal framework to entertain any appeals because his judgments were supreme to any plan and expectation of man.
