Lusaka Mayor Mulenga Sata has praised the United Church of Zambia (UCZ) for partnering with government to improve the education sector.
Mr. Sata said UCZ has contributed a lot in the area of education and in alleviating poverty especially among the less privileged people in society.
He said this today in a speech ready on his behalf by his deputy Potipher Tembo during the United Church of Zambia’s golden jubilee celebrations at Arcades shopping mall in Lusaka.
Mr. Sata has since urged the UCZ to continue with this good work of not only preaching the word of God but assisting the poor people in society.
And United Church of Zambia (UCZ) Synod Bishop Mutale Mulumbwa said the church has made a lot of strides in educating people since its inception in 1965.
Bishop Mulumbwa said the UCZ will continue working with government in addressing the social ills affecting citizens in the nation.
He noted that there were many troubled people that were facing problems hence the need for the church’s intervention.
