CCAP Synod supports Malawi airport shutdown demos ‘to ensure electoral justice prevails’

Despite concerns of severe economic consequences if airports and border posts are closed as planned by the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC), the Livingstonia Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has backed the five-day vigils.

Rev Nyondo: In support to ensure electoral justice

The synod’s general secretary the Reverend Levi Nyondo said the church will do what it can, including supporting the demonstrations to shut down the country’s major airports  and border posts to force Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah to resign or President Peter Mutharika to fire her.

The five-day shutdown is slated for August 26 to 30 2019.

Rev Nyondo speaking during his sermon at a synod conference in Area 47 in Lilongwe on Sunday that the church will support and urge its members to participate in the protests peacefully.

He said the backing of the demonstrations is one way of showing Malawians the light leading to electoral justice.

“We will make sure electoral justice prevails,” stressed Nyondo.

He said Ansah should respect the will of Malawians and resign.

Nyondo said the church has vowed to fight together with the people – about 60 percent of the electorate – who are mourning that the presidential elections results were bastardised.

“When people have complains, what we need is to allow justice to prevail,” said Nyondo.

University of Malawi’s Chancellor College political science lecture Mustafa Hussein said “there is no problem for the church endorsing demonstration”, saying they have a purpose.

Meanwhile, economists have warned of severe economic consequences if airports and border posts are closed.

They have also warned that the planned protests will also likely dent the long-time international perception that Malawi is a stable and peaceful State.

How can Malawi be a peaceful country when the president & his cronies are in the forefront bombing offices & residences of those with opposing views? How can a president reward petrol bombers with millions of taxpayers’ money instead of punishing them? Hospitals are without drugs while education is in a sorry? How can Malawi be peaceful when the rich get richer while poor get poorer? Prisons are for the poor as the rich can afford tongue twisting lawyers to defend them? Do you call that peace? What is peace?

Nyondo ndi Chipofya are not men of God rather Pastors of doom because as renowned me of God what they could do is to their followers to put Malawi in God’s hands. And if they are tired with God’s work they should just join politics as their counterparts did like Mzomera Ngwira, GS for MCP, Sembereka, Malani Mtonga, the list is endless. Musabisalire ku mipingo ayi and inu who are behind these two(i mean the congregation) you mean all of you can not come out and criticise them bcoz instead of them serving the congregation they go astray.

Foolish Reverend without a vision. Mmalo molalikira za kumwamba uli busy campaigning for ndale zadziko lapansi. Who will this cause. Mbusa ofuna kuphetsa ndi kugawa anthu opusa iwe. Malawians let us open and eyes and let be wise. Let us have wisdom. Otherwise we are fast heading for disaster. Things that this stupid Reverand and his stooges will fail handle and contain are emminent for this country. This a CRY for my beloved Malawi. Muvi oyang’anira umenewu.!!!!!!
