And speaking earlier Eastern Province RCZ vice Synod Moderator Clement Mwanza appealed to political parties to exercise restraint towards one another as the country holds the general elections in August.
Reverend Dr. Mwanza says Zambia should embrace the One Zambia One Nation motto for continued peace that it is enjoying adding that all churches should pray and fast to overcome the power of violence which is over showering the country.
Reverend Dr. Mwanza says the church is also praying against the ritual killings and accidents that have continued to happen in Zambia.
He says as the church celebrates the fifty years Jubilee of self-governance, God will definitely answer the prayers for peace in the land to prevail.
