Zambians should stop expecting miracles from Government, Independent Churches of Zambia (ICOZ) director Bishop David Masupa has advised.
Bishop Masupa said Zambians should not expect President Edgar Lungu and Government to tackle all the country’s problems within a short time, but should rather give them enough time to prove their sincerity.
“We should not expect President Lungu and Government to perform miracles for the country within a short time. President Lungu is human and cannot tackle all the challenges with mere hands like a miracle worker,” Bishop Masupa said.
He asked those expecting immediate results in order to validate confidence in Government and its leadership to be patient.
Bishop Masupa observed that Government needed time to deliver positive results.
“We need to give them time to work and prove themselves,’’ he said.
Bishop Masupa noted that people wanted immediate results from Government, but they should realise that development took time to actualise.
He said development was a long-term process which needed concerted planning and time.
Bishop Masupa also warned politicians to desist from making false promises to voters.
“My advice goes to all the politicians in the country to desist from making empty promises to the people; they should stop raising people’s hopes that they would tackle the country’s challenges in a short period, it is impossible,” he said.
