The ZCID Board chairperson Nathan Mulonga said they will not attend due to unresolved issues with the three Church Mother Bodies.
Mulonga said the three Church mother bodies have refused to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the ZCID and their refusal to agree on the agenda and road map of the dialogue process.
He said this is contrary to what was agreed with ZCID and the church and that the decision to withdraw was arrived at after meeting with 31 political parties.
He said ZCID will pursue its own dialogue agenda and that a new date for Presidents’ summit will be announced soon.
Mulonga said this at a media briefing in Lusaka.
