THE Christian Democratic Party (CDP) has expressed concern over the Immigration department invasion in Churches.
CDP president Danny Pule said churches were partners in national development and the men of God should not be attacked or sent away.
Dr Pule who was speaking at a press briefing held at Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) in Kitwe yesterday, said his party was concerned over the way immigration department officers were conducting their operations by invading churches.
He said he was displeased with the way immigration officers in Kitwe picked immigrants at a church gathering last week.
“We do support Government’s effort to flash out immigrants from the country but there is a professional way of doing that and not going about invading churches,” he said.
Dr Pule advised that Government should partner with Churches to reduce crime levels in the country and further advised them to stop charging churches who were conducting their church services in Government schools.
He further appealed to Government to set up a trustee fund that would assist churches build infrastructures in their respective localities.
