PP says night of prayer event had ‘bad motives’

The opposition Peoples Party (PP) are  disappointed lot after they were left out of a night of prayer event attended by President Peter Mutharika at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Friday, April 1.

The prayers were organized by Apostle  Stanley Ndovi of Living Waters Church (LWC) and
Madalitso Mbewe of Calvary Family Church (CFC).

Mutharika’s attendance came on the background of alleged prophecy by Nigerian ‘prophet’ T.B. Joshua who recently prophesized that one of the Southern African presidents would die soon.

President Mutharika then infuriated by the alleged prophecy which many people believed targeted the Malawian leader, dubbed Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) as a ‘fake man’.

The prayers, which attracted believers from all corners of the country, were meant to seek God’s grace on Malawi as well as to pray for Mutharika.

However, PP who did not attend the event could not hide their frustration for being left out, insinuating the “prayers were organized in bad faith with bad intentions and bad motives”.

The party’s Publicity Secretary, Ken Msonda told Nyasa Times they have always respected  the churches  and if invited he has attended prayers organized by religious and faith groups.

“We did not attend the night of prayers because we were not invited; even had we been invited we would have given it a second thought whether to attend or not for several reasons,” argues Msonda.

Msonda ignited the bitter war of words with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) claiming it organized the prayers to counter national day of prayer event religious and faith leaders organized in January this year at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.

“History has it that DPP administration is specialized in countering events; during July 20th, 2011 demonstrations, they organized their own demonstrations; Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) organized demonstrations and DPP came up with a fake CSO carnival to counter,” he said.

Msonda labelled the night prayers as a desperate resort for DPP after realizing that the Mutharika goofed ‘big time’ for castigating servants of God- the Catholic bishops and T.B. Joshua as well as prophet Sheppard Bushiri.

There is no immediate response from DPP.

Aside PP, the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) also did not attend the prayers.

“It is sad and unfortunate that some respected servants of God have been involved in organizing these night of prayers innocently without knowing the DPP agenda, motive and  purpose for these prayers,” added Msonda.

During the night of prayer, faith and religious leaders asked God to bless the country on several aspects including peace, political stability, noting that God is the only one with capacity to solve
problems facing the nation.

Malawi has been facing a difficult phase with economic instability causing general increase in prices of goods and services; increase in brutal attacks and killing of people with albinism; pull-out of donor
support due to continued plunder of public resources as well as a dry spell resulting in food drought.

  4. Munthari says:

    The night of prayer was very powerful. APM is also a believer. he has power and authority as a child of God to respond to all prophecies which Man of God can fore-tell over him. Muthalika’s faith is so great than other other malawian religious leaders. With his faith he will survive till the time of God comes. I like that faith. Even you the one who is reading this message you dont have this kind of faith.
    I have cling on Muthalika’s faith.
    God is on his side he will not shame him. till 2019-2024.

    PP is just envy at him because its leader is roomed with evil deads. MCP the same, its leader’s authority daught malawians about his power.” where did he take his power?”

    1. Wananyongo Violet PKG says:

      Munthali even where demons gather there power manifest too.
      Which Power was manifesting at your night prayers? was is it the power of the devil and its demons or The True God? Can God Power manifest in someone who is refusing that truth should be known about the stolen K577 billion and K61 billion? munthari play with other things not God’s Power?

      munthari you are truly demonized and you need overhauling deliverance?

  5. The prophets dont do politics.Prblms of these pent.prophets they are here to do bussness to enrich themselves.As for this night of prayers there was no need to sagregate,and left other political parties to attend.

  6. Prophet Mboro says:

    By the way, what is this that the mouthpiece of MCP, Zodiak radio Station is airing now concerning the refusal of Nsonda to go to bed with one Lazaro Judas Iscariot in BT today? Indeed the Bible is true that enemies will come from one direction but will be scattered in seven. Opposition mgwirizano KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.

  7. Wananyongo Violet PKG says:

    In truth in times of Prophet Elijah and Prophet Elisha false prophets, priests arose to cling to evil leaders like King Ahab. The few Truth and God directed Prophets and Priest stood to proclaim God’s Word in Truth and Righteousness. Prophet Elijah and Elisha stood yo tell the evil prophets and Kings that God was not on their side but still these evil preachers and leaders also stood that they are of God. The same thing happened to Kings during Prophet Jeremiah’s time who thought that Jeremiah was evil but the God of Heaven and the Righteous Holy One accomplished what He revealed through His Holy and True Prophet Jeremiah. All the evil prophets and priests were put to shame and were exiled and many were butchered by the heathen people of the foreign lands.

    Now let me come to Malawi false prophets, priests, apostles, bishops, reverends, evangelists, pastors and all your evil leaders in DPP illegitimate government that you are entitled to dance the evil dance that is the evil leadership you are in because your father the devil is, was and will be hard hearted person forever. Many false preachers who are supporting devilish leadership of APM are from the southern region from the dioceses, synod, Pentecostal churches because you have eaten the bloody money from APM and his followers. Truly our God is of Grace and the Grace he is allowing you evil preachers to stand high in different podiums to do your evil and false teachings is just the to give you time that may you can repent.

    For apostle Madalitso Mbewe and Stanley Ndovi I gave followed your preaching starting from the year 2000 up to now the truth is telling itself that you were of the world and you are finishing your task as false apostles as of the world. God gave you many years to turn to Him and preach the True Gospel but you have refused and time for you to be put to shame had come if you don’t repent and start a new life in God. But I know because you have been of the world and it will be hard for you to swallow your pride and start a new life in Christ Jesus. Yes it is the Truth that God’s Grace is free and God give everyone time to choose the right path but if we insist to choose darkness God allows us to go the way of the devil. You two apostles if you were of the light of God you can’t back the devilish leadership of APM who are refusing that Truth should prevail of the plundered government cash (K577 billion which the DPP led government stole and K61 billion which bingu stole) to be investigsted. Can a Holy Spirit Apostle back such leaders to be good??? This is a clearly proof that all preachers who support DPP illegitimate led government are not of The Holy One of Israel. As true God’s Servants you were supposed to stand opposing the devilish leadership as our Master Lord Jesus Christ did but rebuking evil. Jesus Christ never entertained evil but He always wanted those in the dark to come to light that upon accomplishing this then they are His True followers. Even Prophets of the past like Jeremiah, Elijah, Elisha stood their ground to rebuke evil of the leaders and the people and their True fight was proved Worth after all the words of their prophecies were rightfully accomplished.

    My final words to all false preachers in Malawi who feast on the bloody cash from DPP team your end is so miserable and a shame because for how long are you going to mislead God’s people. Apostle Ndovi and Mbewe you have called the True Prophet that he is evil and the same thing happened to Prophet Micaiah that the false prophet like you slapped him after he told the evil King Ahab that he will die if he goes to war. Ndovi and Mbewe you have slapped the true Prophet by castigating him in your evil organized night of prayers.

    Ndovi and Mbewe leave the church in the hands of those truly called and they walk in God’s Ways. They are there in the the churches which you lead but your oppression hinder them. Where is Reverend Gunya who gunned up for Bakili Muluzi that he is a good leader. The end of Gunya is dying daily in shame. Ndovi and Mbewe with your fellow false preachers from different churches do you want die is shame.

    True God’s Servants go to their rest as Heroes and there fame stand up to the last minute of their breathe on earth. Talk of Apostles like Paul, John, James, Peter and Prophets like Jeremiah, Elisha, Elijah, Isaiah for all went to their rest in Peace, Joy, Happiness and assured Hope that Eternity awaits them over flowingly.

    You false preachers who follow and support the evil illegitimate leadership of APM and DPP, what is your finish???

  8. During aparpheid rule in RSA pentecostals stand up to rebuke the regime,in Liberia during Doe’s time they were quite watching pple victimised and here in MW the stand with gvt that put he ppl in dire poverty,they don’t kow their role nsanje ndi Bushiri sinanga asiya kutchuka -shame!

    Kutchalitchi timangoyika chikwangwani anthu amabwera okha. No comment on zochitika kumeneko.

  10. Ruben Kacheche says:

    TB Joshua did not mention any leader in Africa. He said two leaders in Southern Africa and this leader of South Korea and went further to say its sensitive. Now you can see events in RSA with Zuma. So I don’t know where Mutharika was mentioned. Beside that President of Zambia(current and Chiluba) used to attend prayers but they go silently not with the whole convoy like…to God. The idea of praying is good my President but leave the heavenly positions when you go there. If Malawi is God fearing Nation it is good to have God fearing President….but the question is mupitiliza kupemphera ? Your wife used to pray at World Vision. Akuphunzitseni bwana

  11. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    These prayers were really for anybody wishing our country a good future, and our leaders – all leaders – good fortunes. Apparently, PP would NOT have attended even if they were invited. Ditto for MCP – Ms Kabwila-Kapasula has too much influence there, her hatred for DPP is like one based on personal enmity or bad blood. Where did that come from? Ask her.
    To the so-called Prophets: Stop invoking events based on dreams. Or wishful thinking. Some thinkers are wondering loud why the “Prophets” are not declaring when the drought will be over. Or why they did not predict the current drought. Science did, on probality.

    The people for which you wish bad luck (and worse!) may be here for a long time, to your chagrin; and hopefully they will help us get out of the dire straits the previous un-elected regime, PP, left us in.

    At least the current government is working mwausaveji (like crazy) to get us back on our feet. They deserve all the support, no less.

  12. Parallel Market says:

    Malawians, why do we like
    criticising anything and everything that takes place in our beautiful Republic including prayers? Lets fear GOD. He is biggest of all!!!

  13. bojo mujo says:

    Ken Mso*mba ndiye uti kodi? Wandewu uja? Kkkkkkk atamenyedwa ndi truck driver akuti DPP, nkhuku zake zikakana kuikira mazira akuti DPP, akazi ake akakana kuchinda akuti DPP kkkkkk. Are you insane Ken men then?

  14. mjomba welewo says:

    The person is shooting down the independence of graft bursting body ACB yet u are praying to God for the continued plundering of money, what bull-shit ….

  15. Chikatere says:

    I heard an advert inviting all Malawians to this important function. PP isn’t Malawian so needed a special invitation. Organizers should have considered these non-Malawians as well.

  16. Chikatere says:

    How can a dull leader uplift the country? chiuta akovwira uyo akujivwira yekha

  17. Rob watsopano says:

    Foolish Politicians in Malawi, ife tinapita kumapephelo titabva pa radio,tv komaso titawelenga mu news, ndipo mbiri ya mapephelowa inabveka paliponse. Inu a PP zoona mukufuna invitation yanu-yanu? President sanayitanidwe, koma yekha atabva anapanga chisakho.
    Tineneso pano kuti TB Joshua sanalosele za ifa, koma chifukwa cha kusaphuzila kwa atola khani athu, amapotoza khani mwadala kuti ife tikawelenga tizisokonezeka.
    Tinene pano kuti-tisiya kuwelenga komaso kubvela khani zanu monga anasiyila JB ndi APM.

  18. ineyo says:

    Why then did the organizers INVITE pitala considering that he is also just human and Malawian for that matter. why didn’t they extend their invitations to other political parties if these prayers were meant for national unity?

    I think Ken Msonda has a point my good fellow commentators. The two church leaders that organized the event are always associated with DPP. whether I like it or not your prayers were organized following recommendations made by TB JOSHUA….. paranoid pitala is afraid of death… after pressing a panic button. ..

  19. Nzoona Ndithu says:

    It is only those people who are demon possessed who cannot appreciate what other men of God have done. It should be about you only. Malawi needs such prayers and we will continue up until God heals Malawi

  20. J. Chagoma says:

    Why politicising everything? You mean u failed to attend the prayers because you were not invited? Who invites who to a church? This is a selfish and wrong mentality. If you want to praise God, you can not wait for an invitation. This was not a wedding. Don’t always think, act, walk, sleep, eat, pray, live or do everything POLITICALLY.

  21. Man of God says:

    Mr Nsonda just keep quite if you dont have anything to share with us.do you mean that every prayer which organised by some faith communities you need invitation?If you are human being please dont ask God to give you invitation letter to attend to his prayer rather you could go there without any conditional.

  22. Kammataka says:

    Sad that politics is now mixed with these important prayers. Msonda mind your comments on things which you really don’t know. The coming of Mutharika had nothing to do with your thinking he came as a head of state to pray for Malawi. This had nothing to do with any personalities but seeking God’s face for help to intervene in our problems as Malawians. Please Kennedy I know you as a believer who could just come and join us not as a publicity secretary of your party but as a patriot and a believer just like you did with that issue of homosexuality. You didn’t do that as a publicity secretary of PP but as a believer so did we. The prayers had nothing to do with DPP or Threats of death on our president but believers standing in the gap. You should have come to see how people cried for this nation and presented our country for God’s Mercy not your corrupted mind now thinking everything politics

  23. Kado says:

    A msonda ndi gulu lanulo ndinu mbuzi zotheratu. You better close your toilet. Chinalakwika apa ndi chani? Failed politicians musatisokose. Kodi inunso mumadziwa kuti kuli Mulungu?

  24. Kadakwiza says:

    Night of prayers happens only in poor countries like Malawi, it was a very good idea because yes we need God intervention to solve problems our country is facing. But what I read is that you have to repent first before you ask God to listen to your prayers. If our leaders did not repent first, then these called night of prayers were meaningless. First we were supposed to ask God for forgiveness then there should be another day to ask God’s blessings. Did we tell God that about cash gaters, political murderers, about albino killings, about stealing maize from ADMARC and selling to the poor people at higher price and, did we do that at night of prayers? I don’t think so.

  25. Jolam James Juma says:

    It was supposed to be “NIGHT OF REVIVAL” not night of prayers.
    The message for,the night of REVIVAL was supposed to be “REPENT OR PERISH”!
    Men of God missed an opportunity to bring sinners to God, pipo who don’t go to Church or Mosques to pray.

    WHAT IS THE MEANING OF NIGHT OF PRAYERS, check your Bible or Koran commentary.
    kennedy musonda is right apostle Dr SS Ndovi & his church was innocently used and taken as “nyambo to attract pipos attention” to attend the prayers otherwise apostle madalitso mbewe, apostle khoviwa and those small churches and pastors who organized and attended the prayers are DPP supporters, followers and sympathizers.

  26. Moses Mwale says:

    You don’t invite every jim and jack to attend night of prayers; satanic worshipers, non-believers and those who don’t believe in God. Even Jesus Christ son of God did not take ALL disciples and followers to attend that night of prayers at Mount Olive but the chosen three. Come on Malawi Pastors what is wrong with u? ? night of prayers is supposed to be attended by men or children of God who know their father to Glorify, Praise and Exalt Him. How can a sinner (munthu osapemphera, osakhulupilira kuti Mulungu aliko) attend a night of prayer???? Some of the people who attended DON’T believe in God they simply attended because the head of state was in attendance. I,totally agree with Hon Ken Msonda of pp. This was a mockery kuputa mkwiyo wa Chauta!

  27. Hoitty Totty says:

    Wish you God’s mercy and blessings as you lead this nation Peter Mutharika. May you not be a failure in Jesus name. God bless Malawi and may he give you long life

  28. tuvitwana says:

    Thoz were not prayers, madalitso mbewe, mercenary pastors always looking for money. How can ndovie BLESS someone? Thiz r failed pastors.

    1. yusufu maulidi lunzu says:

      Somewhere something has affected with the night prayers.soon will be revealled.satanic majesty throne has been agitated by power of almighty God.kuti Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu abushir ndi amzanu mwanya kuti pwetupwetupwetu ammimbaaaaaaaaaaa kuti phwiiiiiiiiiiiii

  29. Chambe says:

    At a place of worship, or where a temporary place as been organized for worship, you don’t need to be invited to attend. No need for excuses here Ken. It’s like the funeral bambo!

  30. Phwisa says:

    I was not invited but I attended- the prayers. The prayers were not for political parties but Malawians who shared the course for such. The opposition by vitue of their title they are not wrong to say what they are saying. Msonda if he is a believer then he does it dogmatically. Not anyone calling himself a prophet is God sent



  32. MBATIZI says:

    CHONDE pasakhale MUNTHU wina woyamba kuyankha mapempherowa.Neither PP, MCP nor DPP.NOT even the journalist ! Mulungu angakuyankheni inuyo molakwika.

  33. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

    Take care .This was Gods event and NOT a political event. All well meaning Malawians were invited .Musamusakanize Chauta .Angakusakanizeni. No one shud get a political mileage o vendetta out of this or God Himself will answer you.

  34. Kamwela says:

    The problem was created by the media which said the profess was about APM’s death. Joshua did not mention death or name anyone.
    Mutharika panicked because of what he read in the media.

  35. Ze Roberto says:

    Typical of a confused society who out of ignorance and selfishness can pretend not to know the real cause of socioeconomic problems ravaging the country. And for sure no solution can emerge from this mediocrity. Qualities of a typical third world country.
