Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has dispelled assertions that this month’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting set for October 18th is linked to Satanism.

Mr. Kambwili who is also Information Minister says October 18th is a normal calendar date with no connection to the Biblical 666 what so ever.

The Minister told journalists in Luanshya that government is aware of a named opposition political party sending Short Messages Service to people linking the National Day of Prayer and Fasting to Satanism

And Inutu Mwanza reports that First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda has described the declaration of October 18th as a day of National prayer, fasting and reconciliation as a great initiative.

Dr Kaunda says Zambians must support the declaration by President Lungu as it will help bring national unity.
