Malawi Pastors tell Mutharika to address endless power cuts

Pentecostal pastors on Monday fell short of asking the holy spirit to intervene in the endless power cuts in Malawi instead they asked President Peter Mutharika to ensure power blackouts are minimised.

Speaking at Kamuzu Palace, one of the pastors, in his speech dwelt much on power blackouts, saying Malawians are suffering and losing a lot.

“These power blackouts are also a scare to potential investors,” said the pastor as President Mutharika looked on.

Mutharika is presiding on the worse era in the history of the efficiency of power utility provider Escom as Malawians and investors spend long hours without electricity.

The pastor said the government should explore alternative energy means to supplement power from Esom, stating the frequent power cuts are a detrimental to development.

Mutharika however did not respond to this electricity power issue, although he said, the church and government must work together to improve lives of ordinary Malawians.

Apostle Augustine M’gala promised to provide guidance to government.

“We are there to provide wise counsel where we feel you need the wise counsel and we are available. We are at your disposal to provide the guidance as men of God so that the country enjoys the good peace and tranquility that is prevailing” pledged Mgala.

Mgala pointed out that with the conductive environment government is providing for the preaching of the gospel to many parts of the country, they feel obliged to pray for the country’s leadership.

True, Malawi has to sort out the energy sector issues comprehensively if foreign investors are to be attracted to the country. However, the pastors have missed a point asking the president to address the issue of frequent blackouts.

The current situation leaves a… Read more »

We have to stay for 8 hours everyday without electricity here in Zambia.Its just not Malawi.Now some banks are offering loans to the Zambian people to enable them purchase generators.




nothing is happening is happening under this clueless administration. No construction works in towns and cities, no rehabilitation or refurbishment of infrastructure under this administration. They are good at going to foreign cities and enjoy infrastructure there. Clueless boma

Do not touch the annointed ones of God once you get curses without knowing. We need to join hands and pray for our nation (2 Kings 7:14). Insulting each other will not help. Writing negativity about your country is self suicide. If you are intelligent and you have solutions, write about those solutions. We all understand and appreciate that some of the challenges our nation is facing cannot be resolved in one or two years. Where is the money to run this country effectively> Let us join hands in fighting corruption which is hindering development of this country.
