TO the members of our churches, our brothers and sisters from all walks of life and the leadership of this nation; fraternal greetings;
We, the Heads of Churches from the member churches of the Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) gathered in Lusaka on 28th February, 2012, to deliberate on the post election state of our Nation Zambia, reaffirmed our continued commitment to provide a prophetic voice on issues of Christian values and human dignity. We continue as a Council of Churches to believe and promote the upholding of human dignity, justice, integrity, transparency and accountability in all matters of human interaction at all levels of society.
Since the publication of our last Pastoral Letter to the Nation entitled ‘Another chance for a new beginning’ a month after the September 20th General Elections, we have followed closely the first 90 days and beyond of the PF government’s work. We note that following the change of Government on 22nd September, 2011, there has been a renewed spirit in the country which has invigorated the high expectations of the Zambian people.
We continue to believe and trust that indeed a better Zambia is possible under the new leadership and as we continue to hope that the lives of many Zambians will be improved, we would like to encourage Zambians of good will to support all progressive programmes being planned and already being implemented by the Government. Zambians cannot be bystanders in their own development but should remain active participants in their communities in matters that improve their own livelihoods and produce a bright future for our children and grandchildren.
After thoughtful deliberation and consultation among our members, we the leaders of the CCZ member churches, do here by make the following observations on the State of our Nation Zambia:
