Catholic church confirms receipt of MMD letter to dialogue

The Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) has confirmed that it has received a letter from the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) so that Bishops can dialogue with the ruling party.

ZEC Spokesperson Fr Paul Samasumo confirmed that the Catholic Church has received the letter and the way forward would be known after the meeting.

Samasumo said the call for dialogue has come after the Church issued a pastoral letter in which it expressed mixed feelings over attacks by the ruling party and its sympathizers.

The clergyman further said though President Rupiah Banda distanced himself from the attacks,the Catholic Church was convinced that the MMD planned and funded the attacks.
