Ban Jehovah’s Witnesses-Cosmo Mumba

_Lusaka, Zambia!_
National Revolution Party President Cozmo Mumba has called for the ban and deregistration of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Zambia for being antagonistic with the laws of the land.

Rev. Dr. Mumba says it is illogical to for the Church to continue existing in Zambia if it cannot allow it’s members to take part in civic and national matters such as singing of the National anthem and voting.

He adds that the Church has continued to defy the Constitution that governs the country by not allowing it’s members not to sing the National Anthem, to Register as Voters and voting, politicking among others, yet the same members benefit from services the same constitution they disregard.

The NRP leader notes that people need to be patriotic and obey the laws of the land as they enjoy certain provisions of the Constitution.

“The same constitution they disregard and disrespect is the one that gives them Rights to free movement, Right to worship and belong to any religion of their choice, so why can’t they also follow the same constitution by voting? Is this now not playing double standards?

They must be banned for insulting the same document that gives them Rights!” Dr. Mumba emotionally charged.

The opposition leader has since called on the Ministries of Home and Religious Affairs to critically analyse the inefficiencies of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and eventually ban it if it still maintains that it’s membership will not engage in civic and political matters.

As the country is implementing online voter registration exercise, the NRP leader urged the Jehovah’s Witnesses to own up, change it’s standing against civil matters and allow it’s members to Register as Voters for the 2021 elections and beyond.
