Pastor Esau Banda prays for Malawi to have transformational leadership beyond 2019

Senior Pastor for Pentecostal International Christian Centre (PICC) Pastor Esau Banda has urged  Christians to pray to God to give Malawi a better future, partly through quality leadership in next year’s Tripartite Elections.

Pastor Esau Banda: Urges prayer for for a healthy politics that overcomes the culture of inertia

He said the country should not settle for “politics of brutality” but transformational leadership.

“We  need politicians that are conversant with what Malawians needs,” said Pastor Banda in a sermon monitored on Times Radio.

Banda said Malawians should look at politicians who want to give citizens empowerment economically not handouts.

“We need politicians that can empower the people so that they can look for themselves. Not the old archaic politics of making people dependent on politicians,” he said.

He cautioned against voting people into power based on hand-outs and empty rhetoric.

“Our political leaders have made us believe that  we have to survive on their handouts. Lets do the right things for the good for the nation [by voting  ethical and selfless leadership],” he said,.

Pastor Banda stressed the nation needs leaders who demonstrate servant-style leadership.

The elections scheduled for May 21, 2019, will elect a president, members of parliament, and local councilors.

According to the Malawi Electoral Commission, the poll will be held under the theme “Consolidating Malawi Democracy through the Ballot.”

The 2019 poll will mark the 25th anniversary of the resumption of multi-party elections in Malawi, but the religious leaders have said the country still needs change, especially within the country’s main political parties.

When I read about pipo promoting false prophet Bushiri I shade tears with blood because these poor souls dont just know what it takes to be a national leader. Doing business of selling cursed water to blind faithfuls can not qualify one to a high moral leadership. As soon as these followers realise that they are being tricked Bushiri will fall. What is happening now isnt new. Jere 27::15 Lamentation2 :14; Eze 22:28; Math7:15; 24:11 24:24Lk6:26 2pe2:1 All the false prophets want to advantage of the poverty and ignorance of the pipo. Take the G7 countries who prayed for them… Read more »

Pastor, you have said it all. People should avoid brutality. Brutality is synonymous to MCP. It is also said that 21 May 2019 will mark “25 years after the resumption of multiparty politics in Malawi….” The system resumed after MCP killed it. If you want multiparty to continue do not vote for MCP. If you want a decent Malawi avoid a movement full of disgruntled politicians with cases to answer. 90% of them have bail bonds in their pockets and bras. Any leader who agrees to be promoted by these must be likewise in character as birds of the same… Read more »

Its good to pray for this but let me say this to my fellow pentcostal and chrasmatic born again christians especially padtors.
TIME HAS COME TO OPEN THE EYES OF OUR CHURCH FOLLOWERS THE QUALITIES OF A MAN OR WOMAN TO BE A PRESIDENT, MP AND COINCILLOR.

OTHER CHURCHES HAVE NO FEAR TO ADVISE THEIR FLOCKS WHOM NOT TO VOTE OR TO VOTE FOR..PRAYERS PLUS CIVIC EDUCATION MATTERS MUCH.

Malawians, especially those living in poverty, can not identify themselves with ethical, selfless and moral leaders. The Kamuzu-type leadership which was characterised by master-servant traits, is all they know. Most Malawians are looking for another Dr Kamuzu Banda in a leader. They just don’t know any better and unfortunately its this disfranchised population that political parties are targeting. For any meaningful political change to happen the church has to be hyperactive in preaching the gospel of ethical, selfless and moral leadership not just close to general/tripartite elections but everyday and every Friday/Sat and Sunday. Malawi needs much more than prayers… Read more »
