CCAP Livingstonia Synod backs stay away protests: ‘Day of Rage’ this Friday
Livingstonia Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has endorses the plan by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and its alliance partner, UTM Party, against Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah and other commissioners to step aside as the court declared them incompetent to manage an election, but are proceeding to do just that.
MCP and UTM Party have organised ‘The Day of Rage’ protests this Friday to exert pressure for the adamant group of commissioners to go.
Livingstonia Synod has since declared Friday a ‘Day of Rage’ holiday to allow people stay at home.
The synod’s general secretary, Reverend Levi Nyondo, told Times Radio: “ This Friday is going to be a holiday for the synod. We want to show that we, too, are not happy.
“In fact, what the President [Peter Mutharika] has done by not signing the bills and not taking heed of the recommendations by Pac [Public Appointments Committee of Parliament] is very wrong,” he said.
Nyondo said President Mutharika seems to be undermining the people’s demands.
He said Ansah and her commissioners should “ kindly and politely resign”
Nyondo said Ansah is confusing all Malawians from Nsanje to Chitipa.
MCP and UTM have also instructed their lawyers to ask the Constitutional Court to determine whether it is lawful for Ansah to continue holding her position when the court and Parliament stated that she is incompetent.
A joint statement from the two partners in the upcoming fresh presidential poll said: “Since we cannot hold street protests due to the threat of the Covid-19 virus, we are calling on all our supporters to stay away from work on Friday. Just for one day, we must remind Prof Mutharika and Justice Ansah that we are tired of them taking us for granted. They do not have power. Power is with the people of Malawi. And the people of Malawi want Electoral Commissioners they can trust. Let us show our rage on Friday, 27th March, 2020.”
This bit of ndowe from whoever this so-called “Stawaway” is off the rails. This is bullshit nothing else you’re pushing our poor people into self created unemployment these people will lose their jobs remember we are in an atmosphere of vendetta. Don’t throw our people into a sinking canoe Maybe you’ve run out of solid strategic kick into DPP antics These people you’re fighting for won’t have anything to sleep on at the loss of their jobs the sacrifice is too massive for them In your case your sacrifices are buffeted by your private sponsors Can you share the funds… Read more »
Nyondo, please concentrate on the bible, leave the politics to the politicians. Unless you want to follow those who abandoned Jesus in pursuit for green pastures in politics, then you must resign and join them.
All your supporters working at our company are here working as I am writing this message.

Let Livingstonia learn from Blantyre Synod who are praying for peace in Malawi. A Nyondo akufuna udindo mu MCP_UTM alliance.
A fake man of God, do you remember than you said you will pray until Jane Ansah resigns? Are you still praying so that she resigns?
I thought as a true man of God you could have encouraged Christians to seek devine intervation during this time of global crisis by the name of
coronavirus but instead you are encouraging people to stay home as if you will provide food for them. Yehova wakumwamba, muwakhululukire bambowa chifukwa saziwa chomwe akuchita. Amen
bola kale tinalembedwa ntchito chifukwa cha maphunziro nanga mawa tikapanda kupita ku ntchito akatichotsa enafe tilibe abale tizaipeza kuti ntchito ina? imeneyo ndiye mwagwa nayo mukauze akansundwe asapite kuntchitoko ife takana
