Church urges Sata to grow up

The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has counseled President Michael Sata to develop a culture of mature and responsible leadership by showing respect to his Ministers and Members of Parliament.

This follows President Sata’s recent reference to his Ministers as useless.

CCZ President Alfred Kalembo has told QFM News in an interview that the Church does not support the continued public humiliation and abuse of Ministers and Members of Parliament by the President.

Rev. Kalembo says CCZ takes great exception to President Sata’s public outbursts against fellow leaders both in government and outside government.

He says Zambians are not interested to know if the President has a useless government formed out of useless Members of Parliament, but are instead interested in seeing development in all corners of the country and the country attaining some of the MDGs.

And Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) Executive Director Pukuta Mwanza has reiterated that the admonishment of Ministers should be done out of the public eye.

Reverend Mwanza says reprimanding government officials in public sends a message to the public that government is not working in one accord.
