“Being a Christian nation does not mean we are perfect but that we need to work hard to live up to the declaration.”
Last Tuesday was Zambia’s celebration of their 18th Anniversary as a Christian nation, and the country’s Republican President Rupiah Banda encouraged his government and the people to seek God’s blessings in all they do.
“It is my passionate desire that my government can access the prosperity which comes from the living God,” Banda said in a speech. (Photo: ZambianWatchdog.com)
Agreeing with President Banda was the Heritage Party leader, Godfrey Miyanda, who added, “We should establish why we are having difficulties with something which is good. Being a Christian nation does not mean we are perfect but that we need to work hard to live up to the declaration. In other words, we should be followers of Christ.”
There was a call to strengthen Zambia’s Christian identity, and to establish an embassy in Israel, as well as to make December 29th a public holiday throughout the country.
