THE Seventh Day Adventist Church should improve the safety of its congregants in order curtail the loss of lives that has been affecting the church, Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) president Sean Tembo has charged.
He said Government must investigate why a single religious Organisation had a high number of fatal accidents. The results of the investigation may assist the SDA Church to improve its safety procedures and save lives in future.
Mr Tembo said in the past two years alone, we had six SDA youths drowning in Lake Kariba on 4th January 2022, then 5 SDA congregants were killed when their church collapsed in Kasama on 9th January 2022, and now we are told that 16 SDA choir members have been killed on Lake Bangweulu after their boat capsized.
“This number of fatal accidents coming from the same religious organization is too high, and raises the possibility of negligence in adhering to safety protocols during church events,” he said.
May the Souls of the Dearly Departed Rest in Eternal Peace.
