Murderers should also be killed says PAOG
- Updated: August 2, 2012
The Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAOG) has strengthened its resolve to upholding the death penalty in the draft constitution.
Speaking at a press briefing today, PAOG Chief Bishop Harrison Sakala said this was in view of the increased brutal murders in the country.
He said life was sacred and it was unfortunate that in a Christian nation, people should be murdered in brutal ways.
He cited an example of the a NIPA student Ruth Mbandu who was murdered and had her facial skin peeled off while her eyes and ears were plucked out in what was suspected to be a ritual killing.
Bishop Sakala urged law enforcement agencies to ensure that all the culprits are brought to book.
He further called on the church to pray even more in times of such murders so that the ‘flaming darts of the devil’ are quenched.
He also urged the church to pray against road traffic accidents which have been on the increase in the country.
