Catholic priest says let political leaders take their children to streets if they want demo

A Catholic priest  Father Eugine Nkhoma has said even when the results of the May 21 Tripartite Elections are not a reflection of what people hoped or prayed for,  there should be peace and not reactions by holding violent demonstrations.

There has been reported incidents of  political violence in central region, the stronghold of opposition Malawi Congress Party( MCP) who have disputed the results of the polls.

But during a mass at St Peters Cathedral in Mzuzu, Father Ngoma reminded Malawians og how demonstrations cost lives of some people on July 20 2011.

“If they ask you to go on the streets, don’t go,” he said.

“This message should go to you the youth, women and everyone,” he added, “ if they want to demonstrate, let them take their children .”

He further warned the youth against being enticed with money to create confusion.

Zayambikaso a Priest, I guess you mean those who are under 18 yrs who didn’t go to vote, because the one who went to cast his vote can be angry and he or she is in titled to protest the results, you sound like an idiot.

Whatever the case, the truth still remains the true. Brutality of our police, thugs joining demos with the intention to steal etc all these will create confusion. The brutal police will shoot to kill.
What Fr Eugene Ngoma has said is the wisest thing! Do not go to demonstrate please if you are being coaxed to do so.

Dear Bishop and Pastor Ansah,

As for me and my family we are withdrawing our membership to Christ Citadel Church.

I will not be feeling comfortable sitting in your Church after all this.

I have lost trust.

All the best to the members who have chosen to stay.

A MCP sadzasintha khalidwe lawo lakupha ndi kuwononga. Why should someone who claims to be a man of God incite violence. In elections, there will always be winners and losers. Why not accept that you have lost and move on? Chakwera is too self-centered to be president. I am glad that most Malawian who voted agree with me.
