THE decision by opposition UPND to stay away from national prayers is regrettable, says Pastor Duncan Simuchimba of Kings Church of Kitwe.
Pastor Simuchimba said it was sad that UPND which was aspiring to form the next government continued to distance itself from prayers aimed at seeking God’s guidance in addressing various challenges and problems facing the country.
He said every government or political party which denounced or distanced itself from God was bound to fail because only the Creator had the solution to any problems or challenges the country was facing.
Pastor Simuchimba was reacting to the statement attributed to UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma who was quotedhaving said that UPND regarded President Edgar Lungu’s call to prayer as a waste of time because such events in the past had not yielded the desired results.
