RB Commemorates Good Friday

PRESIDENT Rupiah Banda yesterday led several Christians including opposition leaders at a church service held at St Ignatius Catholic Church to commemorate Good Friday.

St Ignatius Church assistant parish priest, Anicet Setako in his message called for unity among Christians as they commemorated the death of Jesus Christ.

Father Setako said it was important for Christians to reconcile and love one another as Christ loved the Church.

“If you condone injustice you are crucifying Jesus Christ. I, therefore, call for unity among Christians to make our country a better place to live in,“ he said.

After the service, President Banda, who was accompanied by several Cabinet ministers and senior Government officials, briefly chatted with Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata.

Some notable public officials in attendance were Forum for Democracy and Development president Edith Nawakwi, who also shook hands with Mr Banda.

During the service the president shared a bench with Mr Sata and Ms Nawakwi.

Meanwhile, the Easter commemoration in Livingstone yesterday went on smoothly with most members of the public going about their businesses.

A Times check around town found people going about their usual duties. 
Most of the people spoken to said they would spend their day at home and go to church later in the evening.

Most of the shops in the town centre were open as residents did their shopping normally.

Mutinta Mwiinga who sells vegetables said she would spend the holiday selling her merchandise from door to door and go to church in the evening.

“I will carry on with my business during the day. As you may know times are hard so I cannot just sit at home just because this is a public holiday. I need to sell and make money for my family,” he said.
