Malawian President Peter Mutharika says he has noted with great concern that most parts of the country which by now should have received the first rains have not yet received the rains.
The President is therefore calling upon all religious leaders and the entire nation to set side this coming weekend, (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) the 12th,13th and 14 of December 2014, to dedicate time within their normal service of worship and pray for Good rains across the country.
In a statement issued by State House deputy press secretary, Mutharika has also appealed to those that congregate at lunch hour fellowships, night of prayers, youth prayer groups, women’s prayer groups and other religious gatherings during this week and beyond.
“To those who can fast the President is calling upon them to do so,” reads the statement.
For this reason the State President requests all religious mother bodies to encourage their followers to attend these prayers.
“The State President is also appealing to all cabinet Ministers, senior government officials, and members of parliament, Leaders of all political Parties, Civil Society leaders and Traditional leaders to attend these prayers in their respective or nearest places of worship,” reads the statement.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
