Archbishop Thomas Luke Msusa of Blantyre Archdiocese has called upon all the presidential candidates in the country to promote unity among all the Malawians by practicing clean politics within the campaign period.
Msusa said this during the first vow profession for the six Sisters who belong to the congregation of Servants of Blessed Virgin Mary at Mary View in Nguludi, Chiradzulo District.
“It is very sad that the politicians are dividing us in various ways and that when we see another person belonging to another party we take him/her as an enemy and violence erupts. Time has come for all of us to live in harmony and unity,” Msusa said.
“Therefore, I am imploring all the presidential candidates to go through the recent Bishops’ Letter which promotes unity, says no to violence and asks for the tolerance of one another despite the differences in tribe and party,” he pleaded.
Msusa urged the masses to go for the transformational leader in the forth coming elections so that the country should take new steps of development after the struggling 50 years of development that have gone down the line so far.
He also urged them to attend party rallies to listen to everybody and receive the gifts offered but to vote wisely and not to be lured by money, caps, t/shirt or bags of maize by voting for the person.
The Bishop asked all those eligible for voting not to sell their voting certificates since in so doing their freedom is being betrayed by those who will be voting on their behalf.
Msusa who recently became the Archbishop of Blantyre was well known by the politicians for openly addressing them while he was the Bishop of Zomba Diocese.
