PRESIDENT LUNGU PROCLAIMS OCT 18TH 2015 DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING LUSAKA, (FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2015)
His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has proclaimed Sunday, 18th October 2015 as the day of Repentance, Prayer and Fasting throughout the country.
The Head of State stated that this declaration follows the overwhelming requests that ordinary citizens and the clergy from all denominations have made for this special day to be set apart for Repentance, Prayer and Fasting country wide.
In his proclamation, the President stated that the requests were justified as the countrys founding fathers and mothers found it fit to commit the nations destiny to Gods providence as evidenced by their placing of the national flag at the high altar of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on the 25th of October, 1964.
The President stated that the decision was inevitable in view of the many challenges that the country was faced with among them: socio-economic; disrespect for elders and a near absence of civility in discourse; high unemployment levels among the youth and high poverty levels, Kwacha depreciation including load shedding due to the power deficit.
The Head of State appealed to all the people of Zambia to assemble at their respective place of worship and spend time in prayer and fasting to seek the face of God to avert the dangers that confront the nation.
In compliance with their requests, the example of our founding fathers and my own sense of duty, I designate Sunday, the 18th of October, 2015, for this purpose, and appeal to all the people of Zambia to assemble on that day, according to their several forms of worship, to keep it solemn Fast in response to the social and economic crisis.
SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT
(PRESS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS)
President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the President of Zambia.
This is the Africa we hope to live in. The Africa that pray together will stay together. Share this to encourage more African countries to pray.
The white man came here and met our ancestors answering: Chukwu, Chukwumerije, Uthando, Thandaza, Chukwuemeka, Iyanuoluwa, Chinonso, Chiebuka, Olisa, Igwe, Obasi, Orimolade etc.
While they were answering: Mr. Green, Wilberforce, Mungo Park, Mr. Bill, Mr. Bush and so many other funny names.
Yet, they claimed our ancestors did not know God and some people believed them.
How can Mr. Wilberforce teach Nze Chukwudi about God? How can Mr. Greenfield teach Thandaza about praying to God. How can Mungo Park teach Uthando about the love of God. Or Bush teach Afolorunso about the protection of God. How can Mr. Bill teach Iyanuoluwa about the Mercy of God?
That they brought Church does not mean our fore fathers were ignorant of the Supreme Being.
Our culture and that of Israeli share so many similar peculiarities, why one will be idolatry and another godly still amazes me.
Our fore fathers weren’t as evil as projected by the colonizers. They might have made one or two plunders out of the ignorance of their time. But, so also did the ancestors of the colonizers
Africa is a great continent. Africa loves God. Africa is RISING.
Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo was recently caught on camera in a disturbing posture with leader of #BringbackOurGirls Campaign, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesiri during the launch of the former’s controversial autobiography, My Watch.
Foremost, it is unAfrican for a man to hold another man’s wife in public this way. In Africa, we have respect for married women.
But here is the question nobody is asking, Why did Obasanjo close his eyes while giving Mrs. Oby the so called ‘holy’ peck?
Or is Africa Thisday the only one who is noticing OBJ’s closed eyes?
When we explore the political and financial connections of terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the governments of developed and developing countries, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.
The terrorist organisations across the world are shadows created by a ‘mega conspiracy’ operating from the criminal/occultic underworld to whom governments and governors are mere puppets. This is the conspiracy of the millennium.
Just for the sake of people who are new to the theories of conspiracy…The world has witnessed about 33 popular theories of conspiracy which turned out to be true ranging from:
*The Mafia: A secret crime society which was virtually unknown until the 1960s, when member Joe Valachi first revealed the society’s secrets to law enforcement officials. What was known was that organised crime existed, but not that the extent of their control included working with the CIA, politicians and the biggest businesses in the world.
Then there was Operation Mockingbird: Also in the 1950s to ’70s, a conspiracy theory that the CIA paid a number of well-known domestic and foreign journalists (from big-name media outlets like Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CBS and others) to publish CIA propaganda. The CIA also reportedly funded at least one movie, the animated “Animal Farm,” by George Orwell. The Church Committee finally exposed their activities in 1975.
Nigeria’s President has confirmed that the Nigerian chapter of the terrorist network has penetrated his cabinet. (There’s more to that statement than our minds could understand).
This millennium is witnessing an ‘unexposed’, ‘undisclosed’ and ‘unexpected’ conspiracy…as a result, the target of the conspirators lies vague while the entire world weeps helplessly at the cruel execution of their anti-mankind conspiracy.
This note would have achieved nothing if it fails to challenge you to ask more questions about terrorism…query the recent orchestration of terrorist attacks in the nations which go ‘uninvestigated’…Let our minds dig deeper far beyond our eyes can see and our minds could perceive…
The war on terrorism has lasted for decades yet it seems like the terrorists are on the winning side. World War 1 lasted only for 4 years, 1914-1918. In 1917, America joined the Allies and the next year, the war ended. In this war against terrorism, America is in the forefront yet the end of this war seem very far, why? Is it that America’s military in 1917 is stronger than their military in 2014 or just that this war against terrorism is a global mirage? Is there something the mainstream media is not telling us?

A female suicide bomber arrested by a vigilante group in the North East, popularly known as the Civilian JTF, has revealed that 50 female suicide bombers have been unleashed on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, with the mandate of hitting no fewer than 100,000 people before the end of December 2014.
The female suicide bomber, who was handed over to security operatives, according to members of the Civilian JTF, was unable to detonate the bomb strapped to her before she was arrested.
Also, troops on Tuesday morning repelled what could have been a deadly attack by the Boko Haram insurgents in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.
Nigerian Tribune gathered that the insurgents came into the town at about 5am, but met a strong Army, which battled them out.
It could be observed, however, that tension was very high in Maiduguri, to the effect that students of the University of Maiduguri had to undergo serious checks by security operatives before they were allowed into the campus.
A ban on students entering the campus with vehicles was also imposed, as only lecturers were allowed into the institution with their vehicles after rigorous checking and identification.
The Civilian JTF also were put on red alert, as rumour had it that female suicide bombers now prowl Maiduguri with the intention of detonating bombs at large gatherings.
It will be recalled that already, four female suicide bombers had claimed the lives of over 100 people in two incidents at the Maiduguri Monday Market recently.
Speaking to one of the security operatives at the Gate Two of the University of Maiduguri, he said a successful attack on Konduga meant the insurgents could easily take over Maiduguri as they attempted to do in Damaturu, Yobe State on Monday.
According to him, the soldiers were doing everything possible to ensure that the insurgents did not get the slightest opportunity of launching an attack on Maiduguri.
BIAFRA: Meet The Ibos, Nigeria’s South-Easterners. Forest Whitaker & Bishop TD Jakes’ Roots Traced To The Ibos.
Among the different ethnic groups in Nigeria, the Igbo are without a doubt, one of the most remarkable. So remarkable, indeed, that some have even traced their ancestry to biblical Israel, as the far-flung descendants of Jacob, the Jewish patriarch. Gad, Jacob’s seventh son, is said to have had three sons who settled in South-eastern Nigeria. These sons; Eri, Arodi and Areli, are believed to have fathered clans in Igbo-land and to have founded such Igbo towns as Aguleri, Arochukwu, Owerri and Umuleri.Igbo geniusEven the bitterest adversaries of the Igbo cannot but admit that, asa people, they are very resourceful and ingenious. Indeed, this has often been the cause of their envy and dislike by others. However, more enlightened non-Igbo Nigerians see this as a cause for celebration.
