Catholic Church says prayer is solution to Malawi political impasse

Influential Catholic church has advised its faithful to pray relentlessly for the country’s peace and unity, saying prayer is the only solution to the current political impasse.

Archbishop Ziyaye: Prayer to God is the only way out

Archbishop Tarcizius Ziyaye of the Catholic Church’s Archdiocese of Lilongwe  said this Saturday when he presided over the launch of mission month at Maula parish.

“The current political unrest can only be dealt with prayer,” said His Grace Ziyaye.

“Prayer is the only way out of this political situation the country is in,” added Ziyaye.

His comments came just hours after President Peter Mutharika said at Kamuzu International Airport that the opposition should accept defeat and move on to prepare for the 2024 elections.

Mutharika’s remarks has angered the opposition who are challenging the 2019 presidential election result in the Constitutional Court where the President is the first respondent.

“We are instruments of peace, therefore we need to always pray for peace in the country,” said Ziyaye.

The country has also been hit by a wave of anti-Jane Ansah protests as civil rights activists are forcing the Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson to step down following the highly disputed election result.

What a ridiculous suggestion. People have been praying in Malawi for decades and what has it achieved? These Catholic clergymen need to face reality and start to use their intelligence, if they have any! Progress in human affairs comes about by people working to improve their lives and the lives of their fellow man. Praying is a total waste of time and energy.

We are dealing with a power hungry lot to who prayer alone can not change a thing. The money and power has become too sweet that for them to give it up it will require pulling down the high walls and barbed wires meaning we have to give it our all unfortunately .

The church has failed, have you bishop asked Chilima your member to reflect his spiritual life and avoid associating with the devil Mtambo? Is what Chilima doing not a shame to the church which supported his candidature? Has the church sat down to discuss about the sin Chilima is committing which now is resulting to loss of people’s lives and property? The early church could have excommunicated such a member. The same with Assembly of God, the church is just looking at Chakwela, Was Chakwela really leading you spiritually? Mtambo’s behavior can be justified because he is the agent of… Read more »
