President Hakainde Hichilema has urged Zambians to emulate Archbishop Peter Ndhlovu who showed love and unity despite not always agreeing in opinion with others.
President Hichilema said the Archbishop was a selfless leader who was a symbol of unity and hard work.
Speaking when he officiated at the funeral service of the late Archbishop Ndhlovu in Lusaka on Saturday, the President said Archbishop Ndhlovu and himself maintained a warm and cordial relationship despite not always agreeing with each other.
Hichilema said the late Archbishop’s impact was beyond his own denomination, touching lives of even other denominations.
He said Archbishop Ndhlovu demonstrated diversity, having made an impression in different aspects of life.
“Through that diversity, we learn from him on the aspect of unity even if we may not agree on everything,” the Head of State said.
He said the clergyman served humanity beyond Zambia and even at continental stage.
The President said the level of ministry he committed to in the vast majority of his life was a symbol of hard work.
Speaking during the same occasion, Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia Chairperson, Paul Mususu, described the late Archbishop as a gallant son of the soil.
Bishop Mususu said the late BIGOCA Overseer was a real demonstration of Zambia’s declaration as a Christian nation.
And, in a moving tribute, Archbishop’s Ndhlovu’s last born, Collins Ndhlovu, described his father as a man who had unshaken faith in God.
Collins said it was unbelievable that his father was no more.
“We never thought a day like this will come so soon but it is the will of God that we are here today,” he lamented.
