Anglican bishop tells Mutharika, Chakwera, Chilima to hold dialogue

An Anglican bishop has told the three powerful politicians to bury the hatchets and meet for dialogue to stop the country from sliding into a civil war.

President Peter Mutharika (left) is facing a challenge of his re-election  in court from Lazarus Chakwera (centre) and Saulos Chilima (right)

Bishop Alinafe Kalemba says the spate of violence and protests is worrisome, saying if unchecked, the political impasse could lead into a civil war.

He therefore urged president Peter Mutharika, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and UTM leader Saulos Chilima to put Malawi first by holding one on one dialogue to end the political impasse.

“These leaders should swallow their pride and come together in search of peace. They should hold dialogue for the sake of ordinary Malawians,” he said.

He said political leaders should not sow seeds of divisions and enmity among Malawians, saying such tactic of divide and rule is what is breaking Malawi now, sliding it into a country of anarchy and lawlessness.

Kalemba was speaking in Mulanje during the confirmation of 49 Christians into the Anglican church.

He asked people to pray for the country’s peace and stability.

Can the Bishop please elaborate a little on what is to be discussed during the dialogue? It’s alright to issue statements but the author must at least give a hint on the nature of dialogue.
This man APM, aided by Ansah, stole votes or let’s say rigged the May 21 elections. Do you dialogue with a thief? And remember not much may be achieved if the HRDC is excluded from the dialogue because, let’s get one thing clear, these are the organisers of the demos while MCP and UTM supporters join as aggrieved citizens.

What’s the relevance of the MP4 UTM in the peace talks? I fail to understand. Or is it now open secret that UTM is also heavily involved in the destructive HRDC demos? UDF & PP are more represented in parliament than the MP4 party why not call their leaders as well.
Chipani ichi was rejected at the polls and even mutachipopa chotani palibe chawo in 2024. Chitha ngati AFORD.

What exactly is to be discussed in the meeting? How to nullify the past election? Or perhaps how to legitimize electoral fraud? It is only fools that negotiate with thieves!!! Churches should learn to condone evil if they want to maintain their relevance. Condoning theft is contributing to moral decay in our society. The Hypocrisy of having evil people like Dausi as staunch congregants should be discouraged.

If you are failing to have a dialogue with your own members of the church do you think you can manage to convince others?
