Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has appealed to the clergy across the country to focus their teachings on the peace and unity the country has enjoyed even as they prepare for the National Day of Prayer and Independence Day celebrations.

Mr. Kampyongo has underscored the active role the church plays during the two events which he said, is beneficial to changing behavioral change among Zambians.

Speaking when he met the clergy in Chikankanta district of southern province today, Mr. Kampyongo assured the clergy that the patriotic front PF government is willing to reconcile with any aggrieved parties for the development of the country.

And Mr. Kampyongo has donated K5, 000 kwacha to the clergy in Chikankanta to enhance their preparations for the two events.

But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
