THE country needs the contribution of everyone to grow the economy despite their colour, race or religion, United Church of Zambia (UCZ) Synod Bishop Sydney Sichilma has said.
And President Edgar Lungu says he has no regrets of declaring October 18 as the National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance and Reconciliation.
Preaching from the book of Habakkuk 3:2 and John 13:34 during a church service attended by President Lungu at UCZ Lilayi congregation yesterday, Rev Sichilima said the country needs the input of different people, including Chinese, to have an economic breakthrough.
“There shall be a breakthrough if we work together, even the Chinese, we need to work with them,” he said.
