Stop mocking the dead – church leaders
Church leaders have condemned people who have continued to write demeaning and unpalatable statements about the late former Patriotic Front Kabwe central Member of Parliament Tutwa Ngulube.
Mr Ngulube died on Saturday and some politicians have taken to social media to speak ill of him.
But Chikondi Foundation Founder and President Bishop John Mambo has criticised people writing demeaning and unpalatable words about Mr Ngulube.
Speaking to Millennium Radio in an interview, Bishop Mambo said it is immoral, unChristian and uncalled for to speak and write badly about the dead.
Bishop Mambo says the former Kabwe Central law maker contributed in his own right and he must be mourned with respect and dignity.
He added that Mr Ngulube has a family and everything Zambians are writing the family is reading and a Christian nation must have people to stand for each other.
And Independent Churches of Zambia president David Masupa has said that there is need for people to differentiate politicking from being inhuman.
Dr Masupa says not showing remorse to the family and friends of someone who is bereaved is inhuman and should be condemned.
He says even if people disagreed on political grounds or any other respect should always be shown to the deceased.
