Anglican Diocese of Eastern Zambia Bishop William Muchombo has appealed to electorates to study manifestoes of competing political parties in the August 11 general elections.
In a statement availed to Breeze News, Bishop Muchombo says votes will determine the type of leadership the voters will usher into office and the kind of economic and social development that will follow.
Bishop Muchombo says extra care should be taken by the electorates in paying attention to what competing parties are saying on issues of the economy.
He says cosmetic utterances on improving the agricultural sector, tackling youth unemployment is no phrase of diversification adding that electorates should demand tangible solutions to issues affecting the nation.
Bishop Muchombo says that what political parties are exhibiting by engaging in physical confrontation is uncalled for because politics is about ideas.
He says political parties engaging in confrontations denote lack of critical thinking adding that consequences of such actions compromise security of the country and its stability.
