PAC could bring Mutharika, Chilima together: Presidential breakfast in May

President Peter Mutharika and his embattled Vice-President Saulos Chilima are set to meet on May 4c as both have invitations to attend prayers organised by Public Affairs Committee (PAC) make them sign a commitment to conducting a peaceful campaign.

President Peter Mutharika could chat again with the VP Saulos Chilima

The quasi-religious body believes that by signing a peace declaration, the presidential candidates will set the tone for a violence-free political campaign in the run up to the May 21 Tripartite Elections.

This will probably be the first time the two will meet  and greet at an event since Chilima severed ties with the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and formed his own UTM, which has emerged one of DPP’s biggest rivals in the run-up to the 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Since January this year, the country has already seen a number of political violences such as the beating and stripping of a UTM Party female member and the assault on a Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member in Blantyre.

The country has already seen a number of initiatives aimed at achieving peaceful elections such as the signing of the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Political Parties Code of Conduct, an initiative aimed at ensuring peace throughout the elections period, and plans of a presidential prayer breakfast organised by some church leaders.

Mutharika and Chilima could also meet again at State House for the presidential prayer breakfast in  the first week of May, organiser Apostle Madalitso Mbewe of Calvary Family Church (CFC) has said.

Mbewe said both Mutharika and Chilima have all confirmed their availability.

Also confirmed to attend are presidential candidates for United Democratic Front (UDF) Atupele Muluzi and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera.

The country’s former Presidents Bakili Muluzi and Joyce Banda have also been invited to the events including former  Vice-president  Justin Chimera Malewezi.

Mbewe said the prayer breakfast  is aimed at providing an atmosphere where the presidential candidates will eat together, pray and have time to talk to each other in peaceful environment.

PAC should be Enganging MEC on the Electoral Processes e.g.Logistics how will MEC make sure that they Don’t Sabotage Delivery of Electrol Materials like in 2014 Just to Create Tension and Frustration. Tisayiwale kuti Anzathuwa Anali kuotcha ma Ballot Box namatotaya Mavote Ati Nkhope ya Adadi Palibepo.Tinatovota Masiku Atatu Uku Maresults akulengezedwa.What if These Evil People Use the Same Strategy in May.Ndipo Vuto lathu lalikulu ndikuyiwala mwangatu…PAC should not Waste Time with these Symbolic Prayers khaya mukuti Breakfast.Anthu ato Pemphera kale mmakwalalamu…Sit Down and Focus on the Processes

State house may not be the convinient venue for this meeting. PAC should also trade carefully or else it may also be taken as a sower of discord seed than peace makers. How many of these have accepted your call for dialogues before now? As faith organisation why cant you impress upon your membership to go for prayers in their respective places of prayers. PAC are you sure this would be a genuine meetings of prayers or will the players in the 21 Maya General Elections be more receptive now than before? Why now? MMMmmmmmmm PAC please you have many… Read more »

Mukunenazotu bwana ndizoonesta umbuli wotheratu. I think it good ot to commnet of issues you do not know. What do you mean by kuzichepetsa? Do you want him kuti adzigwada ngati akuyanhula ndi mpongozi wakeee? Why can we ask our leader to emulate the good relations existing amngst leaders of other countries? Why would you still want the leaders t be workshipped? Musamawonetse umbuli pakati pa gulu, tidzakuuzani mowonjeza kenaka

why taking place at the statehouse then, Madalitso Mbewe paja is affiliated to muntharikas
what if other pastors want to organise theirs too? It is better is if these prayer meetings were conducted by religious bodies than individual pastors – anthuwa azingopitirako manyazi and pressure – not good at all.

ADzonzi Immeneyi ndi nkhani yayikulu. To me I would highly advise that both Dr-Chilima and Dr Chakwera should not attend this breakfast particularly because it is organized by a DPP Cadet Pastor Mbewe. Kumeneko mukadyako kafere kwanu. Mumufunse Moffat Banda wa ku Electoral Commission pano sakuti ali muchipatala. for unknown disease and in unknown hospital because he was playing double standards with DPP. These guys are desperate they can adopt any method to get rid of competition. Watch out. Why having breakfast at Statehouse when we have hotels. Who is going to cook that food,? is that Chisale who be… Read more »

You are it’s better to look for a neutral venue. Why at state house? Who will prepare the breakfast? The same cadets. Asapiteko basi or else akpangidwa chipongwe.

Good initiative but don’t u think it’s a bit too late? Such kind of prayers need to be done immediately after the launch of official campaign
