National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili has urged the church to preach love, unity and respect for one another among political party leaders that aspire to serve the nation.
Reverent Sumaili says the church is well positioned to ensure that all political players in the country are united and operating in harmony.
She was speaking today when Anglican Church Eastern Diocese Bishop William Muchombo paid a courtesy call on her.
Rev. Sumaili has meanwhile expressed disappointment over some people’s tendency to abuse social media in Zambia.
She said it is disheartening that some people misuse social media to hurt others and to create mistrust and lack of patriotism in the nation.
Rev. Sumaili said her ministry is therefore in support of the Cyber Security bill that will help regulate the use of social media.
She has since encouraged Zambians to use social media to share developmental matters and knowledge to better their welfare.
And Anglican Church Eastern Diocese Bishop, William Muchombo, has encouraged politicians to uphold the heritage of Zambia as a Christian nation and a beacon of peace which it is known for.
Bishop Muchombo said political parties and other stakeholders must strive to co-exist and promote unity and harmony.
He reiterated the minister’s call to be patriotic and to use social media as a tool for sharing knowledge and national development.
