Zambia Episcopal Conference Secretary-General Father Cleophas Lungu has challenged leaders to deliver on their promises.
He was speaking at the inter-denominational thanksgiving church service for the 48th Independence anniversary at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on Sunday.
Father Lungu said the 48th Independence anniversary is an opportunity for leaders and all Zambians to reflect on which direction the country must take.
He said Zambia can be transformed into a country where all citizens can have access to basic needs.
“The past 48 years have been a time of nation building where all the 73 tribes have lived in harmony, in line with that uniting motto by our founding fathers, One Zambia One Nation. Let us have a clear evaluation as a nation on which direction we are taking. Zambians are waiting for leaders of integrity to deliver on their promises,” Father Lungu said.
President Michael Sata and first president Kenneth Kaunda were in attendance.
