Director of religious affairs and civil society organisations in the Peopleâ€™s Party (PP) Reverend Malani Mtonga has urged churches to play an advisory role to the party and government as development partners.
Mtonga said this on Tuesday at the partyâ€™s national convention.
“The church and the party serve same people and as such we have to work together to complement each other. There is no member of the party that does not go to church.
“The party is composed of members from different churches in the country and as a party we are going to work hand in hand with every church and para-church organisation and civil society groups,” said Mtonga.
He also called on religious leaders to be tolerant.
