Ambassador Mukwita said both the Zambian and German governments prioritized human life above anything else hence the decision to scale down on public gatherings and the number of people that can meet even for private functions.
“As an Embassy, we continue to collaborate with the German authorities and implementing their policy advice and, in the same spirit, we advise Zambians living and working in this country to do the same”, Ambassador Mukwita advised.
The senior diplomat said it was in the same spirit that this year’s National Day of Prayer, Fasting, Repentance and Reconciliation was not held in the same way that it has been held in the past, but instead individuals and families observed the day privately.
He said while it is always a wonderful experience to celebrate these important days by gathering and fellowshipping with others, family gatherings provide an opportunity for intimacy and reflection on what both the day of prayer and independence truly means.
“In the private confines of your homes, pray with your family and explain to your children and family members what independence means: you will be surprised how pleasant such an engagement could turn out to be”, the Ambassador said.
The theme for this year’s 56th independence anniversary is:24th October 2020, Zambia at 56: One Land, One Nation – Building Our Future Proud and Free.
