Chakwera says love of God has saved Malawi from political turmoil, corruption and pandemic

President Lazarus Chakwera has said Malawi has been saved from being consumed  from political turmoil, corruption and coronavirus pandemic  by the love of God.

President Chakwera and First Lady praying: We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.

Chakwera said this on Wednesday morning  when he attended  the national service of thanks giving at Bingu International Conference Center.

“We came close to be consumed by political wind, by lawlessness and crime, demonstrations and corruption among others but we have not been consumed because we are loved by God himself.

“We are objects of God and we have great love from Him. My desire is to have one day declared as an annual national prayers day,” said the President.

The thanksgiving was held under the theme ‘Celebrating God’s Faithfulness Upon the Malawi Nation’ tapped from Psalm 124.

Chakwera read the Bible, Psalm 124. The verse reads “Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

He, therefore, appealed to organizers of such national events like prayers to accommodate former presidents in their invitation because these are national issues.

“My only regret this morning is that we would have all former heads of state with us, but they are not. Let me know if they do not get convinced with your invitation so that I can go and approach them myself,”  said Chakwera.

Among the clergy in attendance included, Arch Bishop Tasizio Ziyaye and Thomas Msusa of the Roman Catholic church,  Rev Masauko Mbolembole, Rev Dr. Andrew Dube, Rev Dr. Chatha Msangaambe, Rev Isaac Malongo, Rev Dalitso Matekenya, Bishop Fanuel Magangani and Bishop Dr. Gilford Matonga and Rev Matilda Matabwa  who all played various central roles at the event.

Vice President Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima, cabinet ministers, leaders from a diverse  religious backgrounds and some political party followers were in attendance seeking God’s mercy and thanking Him for keeping the nation calm and peaceful.

This is the first national prayer forum which has been conducted since Chakwera became president.

He is delusional. He should wake up and smell the coffee. Corruption these days is as rampant as it was during the DPP era. There is literally no leadership from both Chilima and Chakwera in the fight against organised crime and corruption.

Malawi is in bondage. The promised one is not here we still have rampant corruption in the Tonse Alliance, your Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security is advocating mob justice as he was promoting the same when you were in opposition. Malawi is still in transition Chakwera and you are not the promised leader that Malawi nerds.

Routine prayers to eat taxpayers money. Do not mock God. A bloodshed leader today thanking God, Which god? Why not just thank Mtambo and group, Chief justice and group? They are the gods you are thanking.
