Clergy faults Malawi leader Mutharika for commenting on prophecy

Secretary general of the Evangelical Association of Malawi Francis Mkandawire says President Peter Mutharika stepped his line when he dismissed Prophet TB Joshua’s prophecy that two leaders from southern Africa would die before the completion of their term.

Malawin President Mutharika: I am still around until 2019

Malawin President Mutharika: I am still around until 2019

“The President was insensitive, he stepped out of his line. Spiritual issues cannot be commented upon like that,” said Mkandawire.

“This is not the domain of his expertise, he should have asked help from religious people who could have helped him deal with the matter, not the way he handled it,” he added.

Mkandawire said the best thing the President could have done was to keep quiet.

Mutharika on Saturday went to town stalking Prophet TB Joshia, picking up his traditional opponents, the opposition and fighting the media on the other hand.

He said he would not resign as propagated by the opposition, he is not dying as prophesied by Prophet TB Joshua and Malawi media is garbage and that he stopped reading newspapers.

“ I want to assure and challenge him [Prophet T.B. Joshua of Nigeria]  that I am still around until 2019,” said Mutharika.

His comments have largely divided Malawians on social media and other places with the majority criticising him in the manner he has handled the issues.

Chairperson of National Media Institute for Southern Africa Thom Khanje said if the President stops reading local newspapers then there will be a disconnect with people, the people he governs.

“Not all people have access to the president. They take their issues to the president through newspapers so if he chooses not to read newspapers, he will not know what his people want,” Khanje said.

Khanje also said this means the President is becoming increasingly intolerant to dissenting views and criticisms and asked Malawians to rise up and demand that this must stop.

“People tell their President all problems they are facing such as food shortage, drug shortages in public hospitals, high cost of living through newspapers because not everyone can access the president,” he said.

He said those who are close to him, the cabinet and his advisors will only tell the president what he wants to hear and read because they do not want to hurt him fearing they might lose their jobs.

    Shame to all fake apostles, pastors, bishops, reverends who cling to this idiot, stupid, gangster, criminal, robber and murderer APM. you false christians you claim that APM is good but see for yourself. is this not Ahab of today in Malawi.
    APM see around the corner death is beckoning you.

    Azibusa ambiri mu Malawi mumati galuyu ndi mutsogoleri wochokera kwa Mulungu. APM is a devilish leader and illegitimate leader.
    Manyazi akugwileni azibusa lapani galuyu musiyeni akupitisani koipa.

    Its about Malawi not an individual person, let’s pray and repent for our nation and ourselves for the sin we have done in the past regardless of our political parties and religious belief.

  6. Jahan says:

    He is a Muslim
    What did you expect? For him to respect Christianity? Seriously? Malawians, Malawians, Malawians. When are you going to wake up?

  7. Chwemeka Viyuyu says:

    APM if you at all read the bible read the story of the shunamte woman and Prophet Elijah .God did not show Elijah that the child had died as a Prophet. I also watch Emmanuel tv every sunday and I have never heard T.B.Joshua mentioning your name or Malawi. just get close to god and pray utterances will not help.

  8. Kunena Mosapsyatila says:

    One if the days last year I said that this President of ours has a prophecy on his head and that he is one of the Presidents under the Skulls and Bones (a section of the Illuminatis). The Illuminatis are the children of the devil and are against anything that God stands for, including His prophets and therefore you cannot expect Mutharika to speak good of TB Joshua.

    We have many presidents in Southern Africa. I don’t know why out of them all, ours becomes an exception to comment on such a sensitive issue and spiritual one at that. By castigating a man of God, with such impudence and defiance, even though the prophecy was not meant for you, you have invited the wrath of God upon your miserable life. Remember what happened towards the end of your brother’s life- the same signs that we are experiencing. Thus Malawi has to expect another high profile state funeral before the month of June. This man is more defiant than king Darius of Babylon. For him instead of the handwriting appearing on one wall, it has been inscribed on many walls.

    Ilakweilakwe or what ever they call you. Its better you remain quiet if you do not discern spiritual matters rather than rant like one possessed with demons. God should forgive you for speaking in a foolish manner.

    GOD IS THE OWNER OF POSTERITY. LET US WAIT AND SEE AS HE UNFOLDS MYSTERIES OF HIS PLANS AMONG HUMAN BEINGS AND THE COUNTRIES THEY INHABIT IN.

    This prophet is a dunderhead. I thought he has a religious advisor. A prophet is not a seer or someone who sees things in the future. I am not a fan of TB Joshua but I think factually prophecy happens when God tells you or shows you whats gonna happen in the future. He doesnt show prophets everything. He chooses what to show the prophet thats all. So the argument about why he didnt see building collapse its because God chose to hide that from him.

  10. Imphani says:

    I’m not a great fan of the President but I’ve got no problem him calling TB Joshua a liar because he is a liar and needs to repent.

  11. Joshua says:

    We don’t need another state funeral so soon. Please please chonde.

    Ndiye kuti APM walandira chikalata kuchokela ku Nigeria ku SCOAN. Ndipo ndizoona kuti afa. Atutumuka bwanji yekha southern africa yonseyino? A prophet amatumizatu kalata nthawi zonse kwa okhudzidwawo in order for him/her to put their house in order. I see more parties ahead.

    No doubt Malawi is a poor country has lots of poor thnking pple who act like big fish But R in a pond…those comenting against APM are pple Malawi don’t need. FEAR rules them. APM asked why ddnt Joshua prophecise fall of his hotel? Can u answer on his bhalf u cowards?!

    Munthuyu ndi Kanyimbi basi.A Malawi amnzanga pamene tikukonzekela za Imfa ya Peter Muthalika tiyeni mbali inayi tidziganizila kuti ndi ndani omwe atatisogolele tsopano chifukwa mbewu ya a Muthalika ndiye simabala zipatso zabwino.Kapena ndingofunsako ku banja a Muthalikako kuti Aliponso winaaa ?Ndikunenatu Wa Muthalika.Mbewu imeneyi tingomalizilatu kukazinga basi.

  19. James Phiri says:

    TB Joshua never made such prophecies, check his recent prophecies on youtube 31 December 2015 to 1 Jan 2016. Abusa a Khoviwa advise your leader properly, you are misguiding him. Mtengo umadziwika ndi zipatso zake. A Khoviwa advise Peter to repent.

  20. Lupwito says:

    Munthuyu ndi Namathanyula how do u xpect to respect GOD and his people??? Demet. I Tell u by the end of this Year this guy so called ur president in MALAWI is dying.

  21. peter mustfallp says:

    When GOD speaks the wise listen and the foolish don’t. Let wait the truth shall come out.

  22. Despise not the prophecy of God thru the man whom God uses, an arrogant heart won’t achieve you anything, but destruction. I think these leaders don’t know the operations of God and the ppl He uses, if you were others full of humbleness you could have inquired from him to know what the future holds for you. Repent !

  24. Ilakweilakwe says:

    Stupid prophecies
    Mkandawire n your brother tb joshua don’t scare apm only you n the fake prophets are just humans. Musatibowe ok. Yes he will die but not because some fool in Nigeria thinks so. Iwe mkandawire remember faith ndiyovuta if u share ur faith with tb Joshua Ine ndi apm we don’t. Just as u had a right to comment on the matter so is apm who r u to shut him up. Dont use mulungu to scare pple panja ma pente u like scaring pple ndi curse and ziwanda n so on. Stupid

  25. jk says:

    sad that our nation is led by this careless leadership. I feel pitty for this, becoz APM z supposed to act as farher for the nation of which his careless ness may be costly! God forgive us. God forgive this cluess less Malawi president. God bless us

    TB Joshua is a thief. He thought APM would go and visit his stupid synagogue like dull JB used to do. Walemba mmadzi TBJ

  27. MBUMBA says:

    HISTORY AND BIBLE SAYS TRUE LEADERS/KINGS USED TO TEAR THEIR
    CLOTHES SOME EVEN WEAR SACK CLOTHES WHEN A MAN OF GOD WARNS OF A DANGER COMING TO THEM OR
    THEIR PEOPLE (NATION)

    THIS WAS BEING DONE TO HUMBLE AND TREMBLE BEFORE
    GOD ALMIGHTY NO MATTER
    WHAT

    WE HAVE SO MANY PROBLEMS
    AFFECTING OUR NATION TODAY
    WHY CANT OUR LEADERS
    CALL FOR AN INDABA OF THESE MEN OF GOD TO PRAY
    FOR US RATHER THAN SHOUTING AT THEM ???

    I AM PERSONALLY SCARED
    AS THIS MAY BRING MORE
    HARM TO THE LEADER AND
    THE NATION AS A WHOLE.

    MAY GOD ALMIGHTY FORGIVE
    US.
    PRAYERS.

  28. Chilungamo says:

    This APM has never belonged to any church before , the CCAP of Blantyre Synod just chose Peter to be their member in a corrupt manner , APM never went to a CCAP Sundy School or baptised . Money and power corrupts that’s why this idiot is found to be a CCAP Blantyre Synod Christian

  29. Chambe says:

    He stepped of line; which standard line is there? What did the Religious Leaders do upon hearing this on the media? They kept numb.Of course TB did not mention names; it is the section of some Malawians who wished him dead and reported their wishes on the media. Did Malawi Media show it’s neutrality on the matter other than fueling it?
    I don’t think keeping quiet would have been a good option. Wishing someone dead through words can not be left un challenged by the aggrieved and only through words countering the challenge was a good option for the President.
    If APM has chosen not to read certain newspapers, it is because he feels those news papers publish their stories of which 90% contain untruthfulness. This does not mean that he can be disconnected. He may use other credible options of getting truthful information.

  31. Aubemyaung says:

    Its sad that most people that even have access to internet do not even exactly know what Joshua said.Listen! Go on google and search about this issue of tb joshua and southen africa’s prophecy.this is one of the few prophecies of joshua that even nigerian media has failed to add (spice or speculate or make hasty conclusions) to it becoz it is so short and the basic keywords(pointers)in his prophecy are (1)southern africa (2)leaders (3)troubled times. It is very sad that to note that the presidents advisors of whom have the most advanced access to internet have not researched about the prophecy.many malawians also dont know about (truth or real words) the prophecy. It should be noted that joshua never used the words or phrases (1) two/president/two presidents (2)zimbabwe/mugabe (3)malawi/mutharika.
    Was quite shocked when i read a very “doctored” replica of peters speech on maravi post.

  32. ineyo says:

    I see spirit if death hovering around his house! Do u still remember what ya arrogant and stubborn (RIP) said?

    The spirit of death has closed ya eyes and ears. I thought u would be now busy repenting if u think u could be one of them.

    Another good observation by one reader; how many presidents do we have in southern Africa? why r u so desperate and restless?

    Mr president we have so many burning issues here other than pretending to be busy by answering or commenting on prophecies?

    I followed TB Joshua ‘ s 2012 prophency that began late January and came to pass on April 5 2012. look around an tell the nation that that u that u r that u r a scent which which I strongly believe u r not.

  33. Kenkkk says:

    Typical clueless president just jumping the gun. Southern Africa has many countries and presidents. Tb Joshua didn’t specify or mention names or countries where the two presidents dying before their terms reside.

    Wakufa sadziwika, any two of the many presidents in Southern Africa can die, young or old.

    So why is Peter rushing at tb Joshua as if he was the one mentioned to die?

  34. TAYUB WASI says:

    THIS REMINDS ME
    THAT STORY OF A MAN
    WHO HAD LEPROSY (NAMAAN)
    WHO WAS TOLD BY A PROPHET
    OF GOD TO GO AND DEEP
    HIMSELF IN A RIVER FOR HIM
    TO GET CURED BUT SAID
    NO NO NO !!

    REASON #PRIDE AND BEING POMPUS
    SPIRITUAL THINGS LOOK
    STUPIT TO EYES OF MEN !!

    MAY THE GOOD LORD
    FORGIVE US .

  35. Phillip says:

    APM has to step down is a God fearing nation but the way he has handled the prophecy mmmmmmmmhhhh this man doesnt know God at all and the way he has spoken ayi ndinkhanda losapola patchombo!!!

  36. The Skeptics Will be silenced says:

    TB Joshua prophet of doom, prophet of the freemasonry, prophet of the illuminate… he knows what he prophesies for it comes from the devil not God.

    If TB Joshua prophesied about politics, which is not his field, why shouldn’t the President have the right to comment? That is common sense! Don’t ask the President to be quite.

  40. Oscar says:

    2, kings 20 when king Hezekiah received a
    prophecy from isiah that ur dying yhat says God…
    He never argued with the prophet he simply prayed
    to God to forgive him and consider his good works.
    God heard Hezekiah prayer and he was given
    15years more…..Tb Joshua has never goofed on his
    prophesies….Responding to a prophecy on a
    podium not Good.

    Let us wait and see if it is GOD’S procephy that 2 presidents from southern Africa will die before 2019, bcoz we can’t condemn GOD.But also in southern part of Africa there’re more presidents includng Peter , why him alone saying he’s not going to die.

  46. jm says:

    This is the time that i hv proof kuti APM is so useless and clueless of his situation. Sad tht he can stand to attack TB jjoshua so carelessly.
