By Staff Reporter


UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema delighted thousands Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church Dorcas mothers on Saturday when he showed up with his wife, Mutinta for a service at Muluse camp site in Chongwe district.

The Dorcas rally, themed impacting the community through Dorcas, was held under the auspices of the Southern Zambia Union Conference and it ran from September 23 to September 29.

Zambia Union Conference president Dr Harrington Simui Akombwa welcomed Hichilema and his entourage.

“Any one is most welcome to come and worship with us. We have our own members who are in the ruling party and who are in this and that opposition party. Not so many years ago, I stood here to welcome Mr Rupiah Banda when he came to grace our occasion. So, we are open,” said Dr Akombwa in welcoming the opposition leader.

When called by Dr Akombwa to greet congregants, others from as far as Mozambique, Hichilema said: “We are very happy with my team to worship with the field women today. For us, it’s an opportunity to attentively listen to the message amidst these holy women. It’s in order to thank the organisers, Church leaders for the wonderful work of God that you do. I know that without God we are nothing.”

Hichilema was accompanied by UPND secretary general Steven Katuka, deputy secretary general – administration Gertrude Imenda and a horde of the opposition party’s members of parliament.

Meanwhile, pastor Ocean Mwiinde, in his sermon titled He is standing alone, urged believers to always turn to God when facing a storm as well as when all was well in their lives.
