THIS STATEMENT IS VERY SERIOUS, ZCCB SHOULD CLEAR THE AIR
I have picked this from social media and I think it should not go without the response of the ZCCB
The statement is as below:
“ARCHBISHOP CHAMA AUTHORIZED EUCHARIST FOR M’MEMBE WHILE IN STATE DETENTION
The Zambia Council of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) President Archibishop Ignatius Chama yesterday authorized and cleared a priest to take Eucharist to Fred M’membe who was detained by the State at Westwood Police post, a few kilometers away from Lusaka.
Meanwhile, yesterday, two Senior Chiefs from Luapula and Northern Provinces visited Dr. M’membe at the Police Station before he was released on bond.
However, the Catholic Bishops have since made arrangements to visit M’membe at his house but their agenda remains unknown. It is believed former President Edgar Lungu will also be in attendance.”
