Speaking at Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe during MDF inter-religious prayers Mutharika said wherever MDF officers went for peace keeping reports showed that they worked professionally.

“I want to commend MDF officers for their hard work and professionalism which is reflected in the good reports Malawi has from all countries they have gone to for peace keeping.

“I also want to commend them for the work they are doing here in helping during floods, protecting our environment and the ecosystem,” he said.

Mutharika also urged the officers to be prayerful and walk with God in order to be successful in life. He assured the officers of Government’s support and further promising to construct a military referral hospital.

The President and the first lady Dr. Gertrude Mutharika also donated K5 million towards support to MDF women welfare.

Speaking earlier, MDF Commander, General Griffin Supuni Phiri said they would work professionally without fear and not putting the law in their hands.

He added that they would also work day and night to bring peace and stability in the country further declaring that they would deal with all those destroying the environment.

Supuni Phiri further said as one way of conserving the environment, this year alone they have already planted 3 million trees and urged Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) who are willing to work together with them during tree planting season to emulate the initiative.

He then commended government for the financial support rendered to them saying that soon they would receive vehicles for their operations and other duties, recruiting officers and adhering to the welfare of the officers as their allowances had been raised.

Each year all the barracks conduct the inter-denomination prayers and this year’s service was under the theme: “Walking with God in 2017.”

Really,Peter holding the HOLY BIBLE? What a blaspheme? Do Malawians look at Mathanyula as a respectable and wise leader? With all that mismanagement and lack of decorum,is Peter to deserve any sort of praise or respect? This demonstrates that Malawians have along way to go before they settle down to rebuild their nation and respect each other regardless of political differences.Tragically,Peter and his late thief brother Thom,are outcasts thugs and lost human beings God has ever created in our country.There is nothing seemly that these two fake Malawians have done to our country apart from decorating our national structures with… Read more »
