Politics is not perpetual acrimony, but competition to serve – Chilufya
For those of us in politics, let us reflect on the substantive value of public service and come to understanding that politics must not be a platform for perpetual acrimony, but a competition to serve, Mansa Central member of Parliament, Dr Chitalu Chilufya, has said.
Dr Chilufya, who is also a PF presidential aspirant, said in the midst of the deepening socio-economic environment the people are facing, the celebration of the birth of the Saviour is a reminder of the unfailing hope in the power of love.
He has called on politicians to “let us use this moment to spread love and solidarity among our people.”
“ Love conquers all adversity. And because Jesus’s entire ministry was pitched on love, I enjoin all people of goodwill to realise that we can rise above all challenges, be they political, economic or otherwise.
Jesus’s great example of the love he left us represents the triumph of the human spirit over all forms of adversity.
Love is the eternal glue that must thread through our national fabric, because without it we will all fail collectively.
When we love, we all succeed. This must be the spirit of Christmas as we celebrate our saviour’s birthday.”
The foundation of human fellowship, Dr Chilufya said, is love and therefore we must all work towards spreading it unconditionally.
“Whatever little each one has, each should desire to spread opportunity and material possessions, for this is the practical expression of the meaning of love itself.”
“ On the auspicius occasion of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, my family and I, wish to send fraternal greetings to all our people,” he said.
