Vice President Saulosi Chilima has called on Malawians to embrace the spirit of love and unity to foster the country’s development.
The Vice president was speaking Friday night at Mt Soche Hotel during a fundraising dinner which the Catholic Women Organisation-CWO for the Archdiocese of Blantyre organised to raise funds for next week’s meeting.
Chilima, a church going Catholic, sourced K1 million which will be donated to Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) ahead of their next week’s Diocesan meeting at Nantipwriri in Blantyre.
He called for love among Malawians insisting the killings, abductions and other atrocities manifest because of lack of love in the country.
“You see people killing each other, you hear of abductions and some are even in the business of cutting other people’s private parts. But all these would end if we love one another and it’s my prayer that as Christians we love one another,” urged Chilima.
In his speech, Archbishop Thomas Msusa of the Archdiocese of Blantyre commended Chilima for taking a leading role on Church matters.
For instance, he thanked the Vice President and government for assisting Roman Catholic when it hosted the AMECEA meeting some months ago.
“Let me take this opportunity to thank you the Vice President because even when you are busy with government business, you are always available for God’s work,” said Msusa.
Chairlady for the CWO Ellen Kapeta said the grouping is next week expected to hold a Diocesan meeting at Nantipwriri in Blantyre before holding a national meeting in Karonga later in the year.
Kapeta hailed the Vice President and the Archbishop for gracing the dinner and dance.
During the ceremony, a number of people won various prizes after a raffle draw was conducted.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
