Karonga Catholic Diocesan secretary Mwai Shaba said the diocese wants to see to it that there is justice in the matter.

“We want to intervene. The church has evidence that some councillors were involved in the theft of the money,” said Shaba.

The council suspended the director of finance after council workers went without pay and a preliminary investigation showed money amounting up to K50 million was plundered.

But this is the first time that some ward councillors have been named in the alleged plunder of council money.

In Mangochi, some councillors were arrested on allegations of plunder of council money. However Shaba could not say when exactly the church would join the case although he was emphatic the church would join the case when it starts at the magistrates court in the district.

    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
    Spoiler Alert: This verse is not talking about running late to work, getting a speeding ticket, and then spilling your coffee all over your work computer. This verse isn’t even about getting laid off, or the loss of a loved one. This verse isn’t about you at all. These words were spoken in the midst of the Babylonian exile in 597 BC, when King Nebuchadnezzar sent 10,000 citizens of Jerusalem 500 miles away to Babylon. Talk about a bad day. Jeremiah wrote to these people, breathing words of hope into their situation. This is still a powerful verse, and even more so considering the context.
    And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
    I will keep my comments here short, because this video is so spot on. I will say that the biggest issue in misinterpreting this verse comes from how we view “good.” Good does not mean easy. Good does not mean living an affluent lifestyle. Good doesn’t even mean that we will always have enough money at the end of the month. It does, however, mean that no matter what God is big enough to work in and through our circumstances to bring Himself glory, and a glorified God is always good for us.
    Ask and it will be given to you… Luke 11:9
    Seems pretty straight forward, right? This passage, coupled with Psalm 37:4, which says that God will give us the desires of our heart, appear to be telling us that all we have to do say a few words to God and boom we get get whatever we want. When we consider the entirety of scripture, (as we should be doing every time we open the Bible) we will notice verses like Jeremiah 17:11, which says that the heart is deceitful above all things, and we’ll see earlier in Luke, Jesus taught His followers how to pray, asking for the kingdom, and forgiveness for sins. In this new light Luke 11:9 no longer looks like a magic button to push in order to get things and stuff; it looks more like the calling that it is, to go deeper, to ask of God that His will be done.
    I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
    If I see one more motivational poster quoting this verse with an athlete, training equipment, or a gym in the background, I’m going to quit life. Paul was not training for a triathlon when he wrote these verses. He was in prison. Paul was not so much speaking to physical strength, or even mental strength to obtain a long sought after personal goal. He was talking about enduring any situation for the sake of Christ’s name.
    You will always have the poor among you… Matthew 26:11
    Some Christians hide behind this verse, and use it as an excuse to be apathetic at best towards poverty. In fact, looking again at the bigger picture provided throughout the passage, we see that Jesus is quoting from a passage in Deuteronomy 15. Here in Matthew, Jesus is giving an explanation for why it was ok for a woman to use expensive perfume on him before his death, rather than sell it and give the money to the poor. This defense assumes that giving to the poor is something that his people are doing anyway, and should continue to do once he is gone.

    Acts of useless Church leaders at play……………..!!

    Why not take action on the biggest looting (K577 billion cashgate scandal) now that there is enough evidence such as the ones presented through: Exclusive: Interrogating forensic audit report of MK577bn cashgate and or the Chimuka Moore grand corruption scandal…………..??

    Personally I strongly believe that God’s reason for publishing John the baptist prison case was meant as a lesson to the leaders of today. Seriously, can’t our Christian leaders borrow a leaf from John the Baptist’s leadership style?? John was ever determined and fearless. John confronted the evils of his day head on………….(Luke 3:7) and was praised for greatness by Jesus (Matt. 11:11).

    Jesus, John and other leaders in the Bible are poignant examples of Godly masculinity. They were indeed inspired by God to achieve great goals. Indeed its sad that today Malawi has no such Christian role models.

    Malawian Bishops please overcome your fear of what the cashgaters might think about Cyou, because the impact of Christ on the cashgater’s life is greater than your fear.

    Sincerely unless the big fish are netted small fishes like the Karonga type will never stop in Malawi!! Kindly I miss Bishop Chimole, Bishop Chiona etc osakhala zamasiku anoziiiiiiiiiiiiiii, uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu kayaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
