The Reformed Church in Zambia, RCZ says it has maintained its stance of not being partisan.
Reverend Francis Mbao from Kamoto Presbytery says the church however, still encourages its members to vote responsibly in the general elections and Referendum because voting is biblical.

And speaking at the same event, Eastern Province Acting Permanent Secretary, Royd Tembo says government enjoys the relationship it shares with the church.
Mr. Tembo urged the church to continue working with government in rendering their service to the needy in society.
He added that the church has spiritually contributed to the peace that the country is enjoying.
