Nkhoma Synod disputes MCP authored pastoral letter

Nkhoma Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has described as ridiculous social media speculations that the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) authored its pastoral letter which was read in all its central region churches on Sunday.

Reverend Kachipapa: The message was based on our annual Easter reflections

Reverend Vasco Kachipapa, secretary general of the synod said the church not a political party.

“We cannot be used by any political party. We are independent of any political party in the country. We have no affiliation to any party,” said Kachipapa.

Spokesperson of the MCP, Reverend  Maurice Munthali said the party had no hand in the pastoral letter.

“That pastoral letter belongs to the Nkhoma synod. The MCP does not issue pastoral letters. The synod has its own rules and policies on how to write and issue pastoral letters,” said Munthali.

The pastoral letter has buoyed MCP supporters ahead of the May 21 elections to be held in less than three weeks’ time.

The  pastoral letter themed; An Opportunity to Choose a Leader With Good Reputation, Full of the Holy Spirit and Wisdom (Acts 6:3),  said the leader to be entrusted with power in the  May 21 elections should be one that will respect the Constitution, has no record of corruption, will unify Malawians and will not protect thieves and looters of public resources.

The guidance added that such a leader should also not promote abortion and same sex marriages and must make his stand known on these issues.

Reads the letter: “We, the clergy of CCAP Nkhoma Synod, encourage all voters to vote into power the one and only leader who has the above-listed leadership qualities as the President of the Republic of Malawi. The man with good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom [Acts 6:3].”

The letter also faults  ruling DPP leadership for not condemning or disciplining its youth cadets for perpetrating violence.

It’s clear that Nkhoma is campaigning for MCP. Fortunately Malawians are clever enough to choose a real transformational leader. I put my bet on Chilima.

MCP cannot win its Chilima that God has chosen

why are people making all this noise when the letter has not mentioned any named candidate as the best candidate? The clergymen have just given a guide of qualities for the best candidate to be voted for. Let those who want to follow the clergy make their choices as guided by be pastoral letter

The Catholics wrote a similar letter in 1992 but we all accepted it. Kamuzu made some changes notably stopping forced party cards, gifts etc. The dpp government doesn’t want to accept the wrongs. Is it a lie that APM stole K145 million? Is it a lie that money or our taxes are being stolen through fuel cards and allowances? Is it a lie that there is no violence against opposition? Is it a lie that Chilima is still in government? Is it a lie that Atupele is working with a thief? Is it a lie that jobs go to one… Read more »

Verily! verily! our vocal CSOs will not support this Pastoral Letter because of just this quote highlighted above.

Verily! verily! even those candidates that are appearing to be favoured by this letter will NEVER fulfill the above condition. Mark my words.

What measures are put in place for us to know that the president is full of the holy spirit? In biblical times, the person was doing extraordinary things like killing many people, killing dangerous animals, removing strong gates etc. Can you inform us of the characteristics of a modern holy spirit filled man. because not all that says lord Jesus, Lord Jesus belongs to him.

Are you serious you need to know that the president is ful of “The Holy Spirit “? Okay avail yourself by believing in Him and acting the “Word of God”, once you do that He will show you who they are. Mind you, the Holy Spirit only talks to those who believe Him and act the “Word of God”! If you do the above He will do just as He did to Peter when he had his a vision on the rooftop in Joppa, “the Spirit will talk to you as He said to Peter, ‘Three men are looking for… Read more »
