Again, group urges President Hichilema to apologize to catholic bishops over alleged rude comments (video)


The Leadership Movement has asked President Hakainde Hichilema to apologize to the Catholic Bishops on behalf of the ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) before the next national prayers for rains.

Party Secretary-General,Jairos Ngoma, said the call for Hichilema to apologise was based on the incident in which UPND party Secretary-General Batuke Imenda called the Archibishop of Lusaka a Lucifer.

The Leadership Movement Secretary-General said this at a media briefing held in Lusaka on Saturday in response to the call for prayers for the rains.

He said this should be done before the country held the prayers for rains as requested by Hichilema when he met the Clergy at Pamodzi Hotel.

“What is happening in the country is as a result of Hichilema and his cadres insulting people from the Church and those who give guidance on national issues,” Ngoma stated.

He further called on government to declare war against hunger in the country by increasing production in various sectors of the economy and avoiding heaping blame on the past administration.

Ngoma said government should also stop harassing people in brewing Kachasu in compounds.

“Local Government and Rural Development Minister Gary Nkombo’s Constituency, Mazabuka, has one of the largest Kachasu brewing compound, so why did he start with Lusaka and not from there with his Health Counterpart Sylvia Masebo,” he stated.

Ngoma insisted that this was the source of livelihood for most of the people who are engaged in such activities and were able to support their families.

“The harassment of Kachasu brewers is increasing the poverty levels in such homes and this has a spiral effect on the country’s wellbeing,” Ngoma noted.

Ngoma who is not in support of the unsanitary conditions in which the local brew was made said government should endeavour to provide alternative livelihood for its citizens before making such a decisions.
