Bishop Mtumbuka tells Chakwera to avoid leadership style that would lead Malawi to be failed state

Bishop Martin Mtumbuka  of the influential Catholic Church has appealed to President Lazarus Chakwera to be decisive in his administration to root out corruption in the country.

Bishop Mtumbuka: Tips Chakwera

Mtumbuka made the appeal on Saturday at Civo Stadium in his homily during a requiem mass for the late Archbishop Tarcizio Ziyaye of Lilongwe Archdiocese.

Ziyaye died of cancer in Namibia at the age of 71. Church authorities disclosed on Saturday.

Mtumbuka said President Chakwera should avoid politics of appeasement and protecting wrong doers.

“The lesson from the life of Archbishop Ziyaye to you Mr. President is to have decisive leadership which does not protect wrong-doers because they come from same region or party with you,” said Mtumbuka.

Mtumbuka, who is Vice President for the Episcopal Conference of Malawi, challenged Chakwera to avoid a leadership style that would lead Malawi to becoming a failed state.

His Grace Mtumbuka described Ziyaye as a true Shepherd who did not mince words.

The requiem mass was presided over by Archbishop Thomas Msusa, the current chairperson of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi.

President Chakwera and his wife, vice president Saulos Chilima, former president Joyce Banda and vice presidents Justin Malewezi and Khumbo Kachali were some of the top officials who attended the mass.

Without nepotism, this government is failing to its promises.
We youth suffering a lot, when will we have one million jobs?
These president trips, costing a lot of money, now we see minister of security using charterd plane to Somaliland, leaving passengers stranded.
Still in leadership of Lucifer.

Vuto chakwera wachokera ku umphawi alibe kalikonse and was supported by mbava so it’s not easy to avoid kuba and corruption. Look what happened to bushiri it’s the same corruption which forces him to be at a bad side. Chakwera must stop nepotism and procteting thieves in their party.

Chakwera is a captured president. He is clueless and very inept. This country is doomed.

The Bishop is your best friend Mr President. We have noticed with sadness that while you really wish this country well you have been trapped in a web of political rights and wrongs. You are eager to please the MCP group and alliance partners who joined you from other parties instead of becoming a Mungufuli and clean up the dirt both inside and outside. By this time your friend Bingu had already started showing signs of strong leadership and had gotten rid of chaff like Dumbo lemani and friends. You are a man of God so remember God loves sinners… Read more »

Chakwela kuchosa title ya Ubusa pa sanitation yake is enough evidence that Chakwela is no longer working under guidance of God’s leadership.

The bishop’s caution is true, man, for any sensible person who is able to read the current state of affairs. I think it’s you who is very stupid and dull, how dare you call a man of God stupid? I am not catholic but I can’t contain myself somebody writing such trash like yours to a man of God, you must be cursed!
