Facilitator of the meeting Bishop Banda told Journalists shortly after the meeting that the church wants to see a united nation by reconciling all faction parties.

Bishop Banda says this is the time to reduce on political tension by avoiding hate speech and anything that threatens the unity of the people.

And Bishop Banda says the church will also engage political parties on the use replica military regalia by cadres saying this is also contributing to the high levels of violence.

He says the church will propose that political parties stop using this type of regalia and stick to their party
