The Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) says the cry of the church mother bodies in the country has always been to meet the Head of State to discuss among other issues the constitution making process.
ZEC Secretary General Fr. Cleophas Lungu has told Qfm news that the church mother bodies have for a long time been waiting for an opportunity to have a cordial and honest dialogue with the President but that this has not happened to date.
Fr. Lungu laments that the church has not been able to have an opportunity to meet with the President especially in the absence of the new constitution.
He adds that the church wishes to meet with the Head of State and table the many issues affecting the Zambian people.
The ZEC Secretary General says while they have been able to meet with other organs and institutions of the government, the meeting with the holder of the highest office in the land will be key to the many pending issues.
Fr. Lungu states that the church will continue to pray in order to secure an opportunity to meet with the President.
