The Salvation Army has implored Zambians to join efforts by government to fight evil vices such as corruption and child abuse that continue afflicting the country.
Chief Secretary of the Salvation Army Headquarters Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Mabuto made the call in Lusaka today.
This was when he graced the Palm Sunday Service held at Salvation Army Libala Temple.
He appealed to Christians to emulate Jesus Christ who fearlessly rebuked the people who were selling goods in the temple in Jerusalem.
Lt. Col. Mabuto said Christians should not be intimidated to speak out on matters that erode the values of the society.
He stressed that Zambia will only be a free nation from vices including human trafficking once individual christians take a stand against them.
And speaking earlier during the service, Kabwata PF Member of Parliament Given Lubinda urged congregants to continue serving mankind with love.
He told the congregants to use the Palm Sunday to reflect on ways the church could contribute in bettering the livelihood of the people.
Mr Lubinda thanked the people who prayed for him and his family when he needed spiritual support and urged them not to relent in faithful prayers.
Lusaka churches that joined in celebrating Palm Sunday whose theme is “Marching in unity with Christ the King” included the Anglican Church, United Church of Zambia, Salvation Army, Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa, and the Roman Catholic Church.
