The Council of Churches in Zambia CCZ has condemned political leaders for failing to implement the peaceful communiqué to which they all consented to on March 29 this year.
CCZ also says that it is not fair that the church heeds calls by politicians for prayer but politicians completely ignore the wise counsel of the Church.
This is contained in a statement availed to Breeze News by CCZ Communication and Documentation Officer, Grace Sitima.
The church mother body has reminded politicians to first of all, respect the church’s initiatives of gathering them together to try and iron out the challenges that they faced going forward in their campaigns.
CCZ has noted that politicians made serious commitments on how they would conduct themselves going forward but have not implemented.
It has noted that the politicians committed themselves to strengthening a culture of political dialogue and tolerance within and amongst themselves as well as depoliticize public places such as markets and bus stations.
CCZ says it would have loved that the call for prayers be meant to thank God for using political leaders to calm the nation by heeding the call of the Church.
