TOURISM and Arts Minister Ronald Chitotela has called on the Church to continue praying and offering guidance to political leadership in the country.
Speaking when members of the Bishops Council of Zambia visited him at his office, Honourable Chitotela said Christianity teaches that, ‘if God is with someone, no one can stand against them.’
“For this reason, there is need for the Church to remain resolute to pray for the leaders including the Presidency of the country,” said Mr Chitotela.
The Tourism and Arts Minister and who is also Pambashe constituency lawmaker said as a person and policymaker, himself has always found strength in the counsel of the Church hence the need for the Bishops to continue their good work in offering credible solutions to many challenges that are currently hampering the nation.
And the Bishops Council of Zambia representative, Reverand Fred Chongole said the Church was there to strengthen leadership.
Rev. Chingole said that the Priestly was there to work with the Government of the day and that God’s leadership is brought to attention.
He said the Bishops were not there to influence the political setups in any way but to make sure that God’s will is seen in the country.
Rev. Chingole further said the council had also made arrangement to help the community and is currently working with women in Lusaka’s Chawama township to develop the agribusiness project.
