Young Pastors Coalition in Malawi (YPCM) has said it is shocked at the level of developments being fostered in the country and has since asked its members to register and choose good leaders come 2014 tripartite elections.
The YPCM General Secretary the reverend Christopher Kamasamba made the statement at Chenda Hotel in Mzuzu on Friday where among other things the body announced it will give loans to young pastors to venture into entrepreneurship so that they uplift the welfare of their families and serve God diligently.
Pastor Kamasamba noted that some of the social problems Malawian pastors meet are self -inflicted because they fail to take part in issues of national interest such as voting into positions good leaders because of the misconceptions that taking part in politics is Un Godly as the process is marred by lies, hate and violence which claim lives.
But Kamasamba whose members are from CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, Roman Catholics and Pentecostal churches, dispelled the belief of voting being unchristian as some churches consider saying even Jesus Christ engaged prayer as good governance tool to guide him in the choice of his good disciples.
He noted that some areas in Malawi have no water, schools, health facilities, food among other developments because the leaders entrusted to foster such developments in such areas are not development conscious and men of God just watch and see when they suffer.
Said reverend Kamasamba: “Christians are good leaders so we have to engage good leaders to choose good leaders by not giving self- centre and money -hungry leaders the mantle to rule us again in 2014”.
Reverend Kamasamba emphasized that the pastors’ coalition is not against the Joyce Banda administration nor her government but is aimed at en-lighting government in good manners so that the citizens live better lives.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
