Mutharika’s Easter message to Malawi Christians: ‘Emulate Jesus’ spirit of sacrifice’

President Peter Mutharika and First Lady have wished  all Christians well as they converge in various places of worship during the Easter  weekend.

President Mutharika and the First Lady: Wishes Christians a joyful Easter

State House press office issued a statement on Saturday through presidential spokesman Mgeme Kalilani.

In the statement, the First Couple said they are “mindful that this is an occasion for both sadness and joy as Christians around the world remember the trials and tribulations Jesus Christ went through while here on earth.”

Reads the statement: “At the same time, the Easter Season is a moment of celebration as Jesus Christ conquered death through the resurrection.”

The First Couple urges all Malawians to take advantage of this occasion to  “conquer the challenges we face and continue to love one another, just as Jesus loved all.”

The President and the First Lady also ask Malawians to emulate Jesus Christ’s spirit of sacrifice as they work to promote a better life for all and for the transformation of the country  so that we live up to the true meaning of these holy occasions.

The First Couple are spending their Easter time at  Chikoko Bay  State Lodge  in the lakeshore district of Mangochi.

The President needs to practise what he preaches. what sacrifices does he make? Does he even know the meaning of ‘sacrifice’. His people are suffering due to his own mismanagement and disregard for the obligations and duties of his high office.

Mr president uthengawo ndiye ndiwabwino, but practice what you preach. If you truly are honest with yourself then you’ll realise that you have been thus far preaching message of divisiveness.

Mr President you have said “conquer the challenges we face and continue to love one another, just as Jesus loved all.” Please Mr President live the message. Stop dividing the nation by refraining from practising tribalism and regionalism. We are all Malawians so preach and live the message of love. You are the father of the Malawi Nation and not just the Lhomwe or southern region. You are the father of the nation and we are all your children. You may be provoked once in a while but that comes with the job/territory. Don’t resort to kutukwana olo kulalata. Secondly,… Read more »
