Fr. Justin Matepa
Zambia Episcopal Conference, now Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) has joined other organisations in calling for peace in Zambia as the country goes to the polls on August 11, 2016.
ZCCB has since taken part in the peace march in Lusaka from the Embassy Park to the Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
Addressing the gathering ZCCB Acting Secretary General Fr Justin Matepa appealed for people to walk for Peace.
Father Matepa noted the need for people to strive together and strengthen the peace of the nation adding that there is no comfort zone when tyranny and lawlessness engulfs the country.
And making reference to biblical prophet Micah (Micah 6: 8), Fr. Matepa said the prophet’s message profoundly and practically invites and challenges people to an authenticated interaction within the communities.
And speaking at the same event, Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) representative Bishop Peter Mulenga appealed to politicians to examine their commitment and attitude towards national peace.
And the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) president Linda Kasonde said that there should be no room of violence in Zambia. Ms. Kasonde added that love, unity, intolerance and generosity must be embraced all Zambians.
Zambia has had political cadre violence and has seen political supporters clashing with the police resulting in the loss of lives in some instances as the country goes to the polls. This development caused the Electoral Commission of Zambia suspending political campaigns in Lusaka city and Namwala town of Southern province for some days.
 The 19th July Peace march was attended by representatives from Law Association of Zambia, Council of Churches in Zambia, Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops, Non-government Organisation Coordinating Council and other organisations.
