Bishop Lungu Prays for Peaceful Elections

Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops president George Lungu says Zambians should pray for peace as the country heads to the polls in August this year.

In his New Year message delivered, Bishop Lungu who is also the in-charge Bishop of Chipata Diocese said elections are always characterized with a lot of activities that threaten peace.

“Now as we pray for peace across the world, we should realise that as Zambian citizens, we need the gift of peace in our midst in 2021 because it is the year of elections,” Bishop Lungu said.

“Most of the times during elections we see a lot of things that happen that remove peace in the hearts of people and in our midst; sometimes words that come from certain people do not help in maintaining peace and unity during elections and some acts destroy peace and unity during the elections and in the end property and lives are destroyed. Such things are not in line with the teachings of Christ in a country which people say it respects the teachings of Christ.”

Bishop Lungu said Zambians want elections to start and end in peace.

“This year, it is up to every individual especially Zambian citizen to choose what they want to happen during campaigns and later elections. We have the freedom to choose what we want, and it will happen, we have the power to see to it that what we want happens. What do we want to happen during that time? Without doubt, we all want everything to start and end in a peaceful manner,” he said.

      80% of Zambians are Catholics and 80% of the political leadership in this country are of the catholic faith. So if you Bishop Lungu and your Bishops have the the ability to preach and reach out to your flock with a message of peace, there will be no violence in this country. The problem is , the people who come to your churches and are catholics , do not find meaning in what you preach. So after attending the mass and receive the eucharist, they will still go out to machette each other as not as Christians . This time as UPND, PF, NDC, DP MMD etc. Where then is your message ba Bishop? You are just as useless as me in this game. UNLESS you are able to convince your flock not to fight, you are just a waste of space.

    We know short cuts are always being used, instead of preaching repentance from our dids it has become difficult to repeat than going for peace because it makes a person to repeat then peace will be seen not visevesa. How will one have peace without repenting, it has been said that his people have gone astray because of culture or by using short cuts. And it starts individually check who you are, what you do and what you eat, is God considering you as a true Christian? If then why preach innocent people who are willing to change whilst no preacher rebuked any person doing wrong as if you know that all people are doing what is right.

    I think all Zambians must understand this. Banabars was released due to short cuts people refused to repeat but needed peace to prevail as well as now people need peace but look what they have done letting prisoners excise the right to vote which means as same as releasing prisoners to excise the right which doesn’t permit their minds or hands to do so, and if a proper Christian especially a Preacher who preachers the gospel failing to excercise his or her duty can’t see what is wrong isn’t acceptable in the eyes of the lord, be serious.

    IAM seeing a lot of dullness from this upnd cadre jMS in most of his postings.surely the bishop is Cristal clear in his message but you start twisting things,that’s the problem of being a disciples of HH.

    My friend, their is no ulufyengo, how can you be with a witch on the act when you aren’t a witch, if you see me with a degerous criminals it means I’m also in need of what he does and when I’m caught no one to defend my innocenve unless courrmpt manners are maintained. People say a sin is nomatter what. I know Martin and Gibson walk with criminals that’s why they clasfy it normal, I don’t blame someone who is ingronant about anything judgement comes from above.

I know most people don’t know how to choose freinds thts why their are so many crimes committed without the knowledge how, many marriage breakup etc, the only thing is to have a total repentance, if we were allowed to open Martin or Gibson’s heart 💓 /mind and see what it contains you may be amazed to find decay.

    Some leaders are bitter and depressed. So they are going into election with bitterness that is why they can even insult on public rallies. This is a sign of depression. It is not a small thing to lose 5 times and be peaceful. All what they need is a. therapy. They need a professional counselor to help them come out of depression.

    Frank talk may be right in another way but surely even God does the same nomatter how he tries to make man come out of sinful ways no progress until forcing measures apear, look at how pharaoh’s people suffered due their man power sliped off them, nomatter how God dislikes other things people still stick on them thats why difficult measures have to be taken, see this in the wilderness people suffered because they never understood what they were told by Moses, man should understand that good people do things according to their needs and every oni’s needs. Blessed be to those who have wisdom.

    God doesn’t need people to be called prisoners, its because of our stubbornness which makes that name to be heard nomatter whether you were taken blindly, he dislikes people becoming either silly, stupid or being an idiot thats why a human being has been given mind to think twice before reacting.
