Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) in Zambia has pledged to work hand-in-hand with the Commonwealth to foster dialogue between President Edgar Lungu and United Party for National Development (UPND) leader  Hakainde Hichilema.

Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland has appointed Nigerian scholar Ibrahim Gambri as dialogue envy between President Lungu and Mr. Hichilema. ZCCB Secretary General Fr. Cleophas Lungu says the Catholic Church is always open to participate in any noble effort that promotes dialogue. Father Lungu has told a local radio station in Lusaka that the Church will work with the Commonwealth in the dialogue process anchored on the common pursuit of good governance, justice, peace and unity. Earlier ZCCB with other Church mother bodies demanded the release of Hakainde Hichilema who was incarcerated facing treason charges. The Bishops Conference had requested that President Edgar Lungu dialogue with Hakainde Hichilema following the differences that ensued between them after the 2016 General elections where Mr Hichilema, the leader of the largest opposition party in Zambia, petitioned the outcome of the general elections.
