President Hakainde Hichilema has come under fire for the second time in less than one month from the most widely followed and influential church in Zambia—the Catholic church led by the Pope´s representative the Most Reverend Dr Alick Banda, Archbishop of Lusaka.
In a gripping no holds barred sermon held on Sunday, Archbishop Banda, without naming President Hichilema nor his government stated that the Zambian people seem to be fatigued by the manner the new administration is running government, equating it abandoning the aspirations of the majority poor Zambians.


The archbishop explicitly stated that the new dawn government seems to have lost direction and grip on what to do with the power the Zambians innocently gave them in the last election of August 2021.


“We (Zambians) are entrusting you with this responsibility. We have a duty to proclaim he gospel without fear and confronting what’s wrong in our society,” the fiery Clergy said, “for example he abuse of authority to ill treat an offender like little poor kacashu brewers and their families.”


Archbishop Banda was making a direct reference to an incident that took Zambia by storm ahead of Labour Day celebrations where Local Government Minister Gary Nkhombo made an old woman kachasu brewer and her family drink the illicit brew in full view of a camera without remorse without offering them an option of how they could get out of the poverty rut.
Nkhombo who boasts to be one of President Hichilema´s closest friends has not been reprimanded by Hichilema for the illegal act but LAZ and the Human Rights Commission have condemned him publicly.


Archbishop Banda proceeded to openly condemn President Hichilema for “trying people” during his long press conferences that is an abuse of power especially in the case of DPP Lillian Siyuni whom again he diplomatically did not mention.


Raphael Nakachinda, an ardent critic of Hichilema was called a “lunatic” and the President mentioned his name with contempt at least 23 times during the media conference while former Lusaka Minister Bowman Lusambo survived with a slap on the President as just a “die hard cadre.”


“It’s an abuse of power to try (as in court trial) people during press conferences,” said the most influential Catholic Archbishop in Zambia in a recorded sermon that has gone viral here below.


Archbishop Banda also weighed into the debate of the American combatant engagement with President Hichilema which is supposed to open an office in Zambia against African Union (AU) and SADC protocols.


“Its an abuse of office to engage foreign military agencies to our sovereign state without due consultation with the citizenry,” the Priest said, “Its also an abuse of power to pacify poverty with rhetoric.”


The respected man of the cloth was making a direct reference to the ever-increasing high cost of living in Zambia where an average family of six now need about K10,000 to survive on basic domestic food needs alone while they earn about K3,500 per month.
This is the second time the media shy clergy is coming out of the woods to call out President Hichilema on his short comings since he assumed office eight months ago.


The European Union and the US that were often quick to criticise the previous government of President Edgar Lungu have said nothing about the abuses of President Hichilema so far, including the US$50 million single sourced

  1. This ignorant Rat Bishop is full of bullshit and talking about rubbish as usual.He is an unelected mother fcker to speak on behalf of anybody unless he is speaking on behalf Edgar Lungu his evil brother.
    Just ignore him, he is an evil possessed clergy doing rounds on Satan’s behalf! So ignore him, the bastard will die with envy and jealous so no need to respond to him. The idyot was silent when Lungu was gassing people; killing people like Nsama, Joe Kaunda, Matapa, Lawrence Banda, Mapenzi Chiobulo, etc so he has no moral right to speak now just because his protege was kicked out of office by 2.8 million Zambians.
    Grasshoppers like this one Bishop has no shame.

  2. I think this Bishop wants run before his shadow.His writings and insinuations are that of a Kaponya on the street.Where was he when Zambians where being abused by his brother Lungu…We have to approach this man and tell him where he belongs.He is expecting the economy to recover just in 8 months time forgetting that his brother Lungu messed up for 5+ yrs…

  3. FAKE BISHOP BANDA IS NOT ANYWHERE NEAR BISHOP MPUNDU. WE KNOW THAT HE IS A PF SURROGATE. WHATEVER HE SAYS HAS PF BIAS. BISHOPS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE KNOWLEDGEABLE WITH THE WORLD ECONOMIC ORDER OF A PARTICULAR SEASON. THIS SO CALLED BISHOP IS SHEER RUBBISH.IF HE IS LOOKING FOR SUBSIDIES IT IS BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HE UNDERSTANDS FROM THE PF ERA. BISHOP DUNDERHEAD, SUBSIDIES DAMAGE ECONOMIES BEYOND REPAIR ESPECIALLY THIS TERRIBLE ECONOMY LEFT BY YOUR BROTHER.
    WHERE WERE YOU WHEN LUNGU WAS MURDERING PEOPLE? WAS YOUR PULPIT CLOSED?
    TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, YOU ARE THE LAST BISHOP WHO CAN OPEN YOUR STINKING MOUTH TO TALK ABOUT ISSUES IN ZAMBIA. YOU ANNOY US JUST LIKE NAKACHINDA, LUSAMBO, TAYALI, SEAN TEMBO, LUFWEKELO ETC. THAT IS WHERE YOU BELONG.

  4. Sad thing that he opened his mouth and spoke on an issue that originated on lies. This was gossip and he preached a sermon on this.

    Now that the truth from the Ministry of Defence is out in the open will he be humble to issue a retraction and make it clear that his sources were fake and that he was too quick to Condemn the rulers of this land while relying on Gossip. What type of leaders do we have now in the pulpit.

    Why did ‘t you approach the government to verify this before you issued out statements. Now God is exposing you like this. It’s is shameful to say the least.

  5. The Vatican must step in. This is not good for the catholic faith in Zambia. They need to preach on fairness and on both sides.

    Maybe the government needs to write to the Vatican OR EVEN BETTER THE CONGREGATION

  6. Why do some idiots like this bishop believe that SADC or the AU forbids member states from bilateral military cooperations with non-member states? There is no such thing in either body’s protocols.

  7. Well meaning Zambians will only listen to those who also used to condemn the theft and atrocities that took place during the era of the muderous PF regime. But, will be able to see through the statements of people like Bishop Alick Banda who are bitter because their annointed man Mr. Lungu lost the elections. Sour grapes indeed!

  8. LOOK AT YOU ALL DULL TRIBALISTS…THE BISHOP IS ON POINT AND SPEAKING FOR THE COUNTRY AND NOT YOU DULL CHAPS. HOW DOES THE USA BRING SUCH AN OFFICE TO OUR COUNTRY? REMEMBER UPND IS NOT HERE TO STAY FOREVER, AND THESE MEN OF GOD AN INFLUENCE THE MASSES WHEN VOTING TIMES COMES! LET US ALL HELP OUR BELOVED PRESIDENT BY BRINGING TO ATTENTION THINGS PEOPLE PERCEIVE NOT CORRECT AND NOT HOW YOU FOOLS ALWAYS WANT TO COME OUT BLINDLY. BLIND BATS!

  9. CHILYATA YOU ARE A CURSE! AM SURE EVEN YOUR OWN FAMILY KNOWS THAT, A DEMON THAT IS ALWAYS INSULTING EVEN OLD PEOPLE.
