Moral integrity in politics, case of Charmaine Musonda

Moral Integrity and Politics: The Case of Charmaine Musonda

Its utterly disgusting to see some people trying to use religion as a springboard for attaining Political power. While everyone is at liberty to worship, I think its wrong to use religion as a smokescreen to hide our moral failures. It’s startling that some UPND enthusiasts are now busy flooding social media with photos of their Chilanga candidate holding the Bible. All this is aimed at clearing the moral issues raised against her.

My question is why didn’t we see such photos of her holding the Bible prior her adoption as candidate? This kind of desperation by the UPND is what is destroying our politics. The best the UPND would have done is to rescind their decision before the adoption and give the people of Chilanga a person with an unquestionable moral integrity.

Using the Bible to undo the moral issues raised will not help them at this time.

ZWD comment: If she is now such a great Christian, why can’t she first go and apologise to Mrs Timah Nyirenda Kuwani, the woman whose husband she has been sleeping with?

That is what the Bible says in Matthew 5:23-24 So, what if you are offering your gift at the altar and remember that someone has something against you? Leave your gift there and go make peace with that person. Then come and offer your gift.
