As Zambia Celebrates 56th Independence Day this week, Bishop Charles Kasonde of Catholic Diocese of Solwezi has called on leaders to introspect themselves on their roles in society.
Rt. Rev. Kasonde said this is in order to ensure that leaders act justly and fairly without favoring one or another while providing a flat platform to co-exist as Zambians.
Speaking when he officiated on Radio Kabangabanga 56th independent celebration Programme, dubbed ‘’ The role of the Church in Uniting the Country” Rt. Rev. Charles Kasonde added that more has been given to leaders and more is expected from the them hence the call for leaders to mirror the love of Jesus Christ by preaching justice, peace and love so that in joy every person can enjoy the world that God has given us.
He said justice, peace and love should be the threshold of Independence Day celebrations on 24th October.
Bishop Kasonde however noted that a lot is demanded from every individual over the task that is given, adding that this can only be done by recognizing the mistakes that one has made.
