Recently Malawi President Professor Arthur Mutharika told the nation during a news conference that the country is “broke” which Bishop Kalemba said should be some cause for alarm and food for thought to every family on what responsibility to make over population matters.
He called for more family planning to reduce poverty, slow population growth and ease pressure on the country’s ailing economy.
“It is not just a question of having children but rather children whom you should be able to look after in all aspects of life otherwise it is no secret that the government is failing to cope up with the current population pressure,” said the Rt. Rev. Kalemba.
Bishop Kalemba told his flock at Chadzunda the same issue adding that the youth to aim high in terms of education and career development and not rush into early marriages.
The Bishop who is Commander of Anglican Youth Brigade in Malawi challenged the youth that when they are educated enough they are guaranteed of a better employment and self sustainability which would help them as individuals, families and the nation as a whole.
“There is no wisdom in rushing into early marriages otherwise I command you Priests to take stock of the youth in your Parishes and follow them”
At Chadzunda, Bishop Kalemba inducted 54 Christians with Confirmation sacrament while at Nkolokoti 34 candidates were given the same sacrament. There were also 13 young ladies who were inducted into the Daughters of the King Guild.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
