Care for poor voters- Bishop Mchombo

Bishop William Mchombo
Bishop William Mchombo of the Anglican Diocese of Eastern Zambia has challenged Zambian politicians to stop practicing “politics of the belly if they genuinely care for the electorate.”
The Bishop made the call during the 10th Synod of the Diocese of Eastern Zambia held May 2-5 at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Msoro, an area in the Eastern Province of Zambia.
“The crossing of opposition members of parliament to the ruling party thereby necessitating the holding of by-elections has become another matter of great concern,” noted the bishop.
In the statement that addressed various social, economic and political aspects of the country, the bishop emphasized that public funds should be channeled towards developmental activities such as education and health.
