150 Lusaka Pastors Throw Weight behind Pres. Lungu

One hundred and fifty six church leaders in Lusaka District have thrown their weight behind President Edgar Lungu as an endorsement of a pro-poor agenda.

Speaking during the signing ceremony of the memorandum of understanding with the Presidential Empowerment Initiative Fund (PEIF), Chairman of the pastors’ fellowship Reverend Ephraim Kambanja heaped praise on President Edgar Lungu for giving help to the poor through the Presidential Empowerment Initiative Fund.

Reverend Kambanja noted that the leadership of President Lungu is holistic in the way it responds to the deepest needs of the less privileged.

And (PEIF) National Coordinator Clement Tembo said that President Lungu has empowered the pastors with seven hundred and fifty thousand kwacha meant to identify beneficiaries in their churches in all the seven Constituencies in Lusaka.

Tembo has also said the beneficiaries once identified will be empowered with incubators, block making and cooking oil producing machines.

He has urged the church to remain united and ignore criticism that may come from some sections of society because of their move to support the President’s initiative of improving the welfare of the underprivileged entrepreneurs.

    Let’s hope it won’t be sandauni for Pastors, putting their children and relatives on the project. The idea is good though.

    Jeremaiah 23 “Woe to the greedy Shepherds that destroy and scartter the flock of my pasture…” No pastor can stand like John the Baptist to point at presidents errors and guide him in righteousness. Our Pastors are corrupt and powerless to rebuke sin.

    I would not empower the poor through the poor (Pastorws) they will use the money to the exclussion of the poor it is intended.The Prolifiration of churches world over is due lack of employment. How do you the give a pastor an unearned salary and expect him to share it with another poor person? It will not work, deal with the poor directly. You have records so the handle the poor directly.

    I trust pastor Ephraim kambajii he doesn’t get church money rather he will find other means to support his family. He is a selfish humble leader I have ever seen.

    Are pastors called or pastors hired? If, called, call for tb Joshua so we can have our mother Zambia cleaned spiritually , and if however hired, continue running away from sheep when wolves approached and eating them as you wished. But the question is, are you ready for the coming of Christ? The answer is safe with yourselves!
