Bishops commend RB

THE Bishops Council has commended President Banda for providing good and stable leadership and for steering the country’s economy to prosperity despite the negative effects of last year’s global economic crisis.

Six bishops and a reverend from different denominations commended Mr Banda at State House yesterday during a closed-door meeting with the President during which they also prayed for him and assured him of their support as he continues to rule the nation.

This is contained in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday by special assistant to the President for press and public relations Dickson Jere.

“The President met representatives of the Bishops Council where they discussed a number of issues affecting the nation. The bishops prayed for the President and assured him of total support as he rules the country,” Mr Jere said.

The bishops said they are happy with the leadership of President Banda, who has managed to steer the country’s economy to prosperity by achieving positive economic growth despite the global economic crisis which negatively affected most countries in the world.

Mr Jere said the Bishops Council also condemned the culture of insults which has characterised politics in the country.

“They thanked the President for having remained focused despite consistent attacks from his political opponents,” he said.

President Banda was accompanied to the meeting by Minister for Presidential Affairs Ronald Mukuma while the Bishops Council was represented by bishops Bernard Mambwe, Peter Chinyama, Zachen Mulenga and Osward Muke.

Other clergymen who attended the meeting were bishops Wilson Mpundu, Isaac Chabwera and Reverend Gibson Nyirenda.

The bishops pledged to continue supporting President Banda and his government, which they said has successfully spearheaded and brought more infrastructural development to various fields.

President Banda thanked the bishops for their prayers and the support they have rendered to his government, especially during the global economic crisis last year.

And the President assured the clergy that he will concentrate on delivering on his promises, particularly in developing the road infrastructure, health and education facilities throughout the country.
