Letter: Archbishop Mpundu must reopen his Bible and refresh his memory

Story Highlights
  • It’s quite staggering that a man who dedicated the best years of his life to winning souls for the Lord has decided to sell his soul. I can’t fathom why he preferred winning votes for a politician than winning souls for the Lord.

Dear Editor,

ARCHBISHOP Telesphore Mpundu who was one of the youngest Catholic Bishops at the time of his appointment decided to retire from active clerical ministry as Archbishop in January of 2018 and since then the once respectable old man has gone on a rampage preaching hate, bitterness and contempt.

It’s quite staggering that a man who dedicated the best years of his life to winning souls for the Lord has decided to sell his soul. I can’t fathom why he preferred winning votes for a politician than winning souls for the Lord.

Many a time we have seen the former Archbishop sharing political platforms with politicians branded in red speaking as a diehard politician and not a diehard man of God.

As they say “once a man of God always a man of God,” one can retire from active clerical ministry but they can’t retire from preaching peace, unity and love because God himself is love. It’s absurd that Archbishop Mpundu seems to have also retired from preaching love, one can’t even tell a difference now between him and Mr. William Banda aka grandfather of violence.

I was surprised to hear Archbishop Mpundu come out the way he did on Father Lastone Lupupa despite the latter apologising.

I couldn’t believe that the Archbishop failed to forgive his colleague and was calling for his head on the guillotine. Where is the love for your neighbour that you preached for many years Ba Archbishop?

Regretably, Ba Telesphore Mpundu is now producing fruits that are the opposite of love. I can’t help but conclude that he locked up his Bible in his locker somewhere and it has gathered dust.

It’s time our senior citizen reopened his Bible and refreshed his memory on Jesus’ teaching on respect for those in authority, forgiveness and love because it’s somewhat disturbing seeing him destroy his legacy.

MARVELLOUS SAKALA.
