Obtain NRCs, MP urges residents

PATRIOTIC Front Bwana Mkubwa member of Parliament Emmanuel Chenda has called on residents of Mushili in Ndola to turn out in huge numbers to obtain new national registration cards (NRCs) and voters’ cards when the two programmes start.
And Mushili Reformed Church of Zambia (RCZ) yesterday celebrated its 20th anniversary with a pledge to continue praying for the leadership of the church and political parties in Zambia.
Mr Chenda who officiated at the RCZ event, said there is need for families within the community to encourage their children aged 18 and above to use the mobile registration exercise to obtain NRCs and voters’ cards.
“It is important that parents here in the community encourage your children to register for these cards,” he said.
Recently, Government announced that it will this April start the mobile national registration card exercise that will gobble K25 million. And in preparation for the 2016 tripartite elections, the Electoral Commission of Zambia announced that mobile voter registration will start on August 17 and end on October 16 this year.
Mr Chenda further commended the church for being a partner in social and economic development of the country.
The MP donated K3,000 towards the construction of an ablution block at the church, an exercise which is expected to commence this year.
Meanwhile, RCZ’s Reverend Lazarus Malowa said the congregation will continue to pray for the peace of the country and the leadership of the church as well as political parties.
Rev Malowa said the church has grown in all areas of life; financially, numerically, and in terms of infrastructure development.
The Mushili church has grown from 80 members when it started, to over 400 currently.
He said going forward, the church plans to construct an ablution block and wall fence this year.
