The Church in the country has been called upon to have a temperament that is above emotions and desist from being confrontational with the government.

This is in view of the position the Church has taken alongside opposition political parties and civil society organizations on the new constitution among other national issues.

The Zambian Voice has observed that unlike in the past when the Church played a reconciliatory role in resolving impasses between government and opposition political parties, the Church today appears to be on same level as the opposition and civil society by being confrontational with the government.

Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says the Church should revert to its original role in the governance system of the country by following the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ who never resolved problems by being confrontational.

Mr. Tayali has told Qfm News that being a Catholic Christian he believes the Catholic Church can do a great deal in sorting out the differences that surround the constitution making process without being confrontational with the government.

He has particularly appealed to the Catholic Bishops to be mindful that they are not politicians to start being confrontation on the issue of the enactment of the new constitution.
