Regime propaganda machinery is at work to divert citizens attention on pressing issue and one has been to fake a statement purportedly signed by Reverend Levy Nyondo the General Secretary of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) in the Synod of Livingstonia in the northern part of Malawi, had restricted followers and employees from recognizing Eid-al-Filtr holiday as circulated in the Church’s institutions as well as the media.
On Tuesday this week government declared Thursday 7 July 2016 as a public holiday to allow Muslims to celebrate the end of Holy month of Ramadan.
According to the document dated 5 July, 2016 and contained Nyondo’s signatory, all employees of the Livingstonia Synod were expected to report to their respective duties at Eid-al-Filtr holiday because the Church does not recognize it.
However, Nyondo has on Saturday denied the report describing the document as “absolutely fake” despite being communicated to its workers as well as posted on the institution’s notice board.
“I did not sign any document concerning the issue and I know that someone is behind it with the aim of dirtying my name and the Church,” said Nyondo.
He said the Church is investigating the matter while blaming the media for not hearing from his side.
Eid-al-Filtr marks the end of the holy month of fasting for the Muslim community across the world.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
