Prayers for elections at Mutharika’s backyard State House Thursday

A prayer breakfast for presidential aspirants aimed at promoting peaceful coexistence in the run-up to  May 21 Tripartite Elections has been set for this Thursday and will be held at Kamuzu Palace, the official residence of President Peter Mutharika, who is seeking re-election on governing a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) ticket.

Apostle Mbewe: Churches will bring presidential aspirants together 

Ironically, Mutharika shunned prayers for peace and peace declaration signing which Public Affairs Committee (PAC) organised in Lilongwe last Saturday to encourage peaceful co-existence of parties as the country inches towards the May 21 elections.

Those who have signed the peace declaration are Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera, UTM’s leader Saulos Chilima, United Democtratic Front’s Atupele Muluzi, John Chisi of Umodzi Party, Revelend Hardwick Kaliya (Independent) and Peter Kuwani of Mbakuwaku Movement for Development (MMD).

But several Christian  churches from Pentecostal movement which include Pentecostal Revival Crusades (PRC) Ministries, Calvary Family Church (CFC) , Agape Life Church, Charismatic Redeemed Ministries International (CRMI), Assemblies of God and Living Waters Church have organised the prayer breakfast at State House.

The moderator for the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, Apostle Madalitso Mbewe, who is also CFC founder, said the presidential candidates will also be made to sign a document to signify their commitment to peace.

However, the other five presidential  candidates  – excluding Mutharika – last Saturday signed the Lilongwe Peace Declaration (LPD) document will bind political party leaders running for president on May 21 to resort to dialogue and mediation for peaceful political settlements in view of political challenges emanating from the polls.

Very pathetic that people can think so low, PAC organised prayers and candidates signed peace code, the DPP didn’t participate and thinks few cadets reading the bible can call a meeting where all candidates can come and sign another peace code.
If these people were clever they could have allowed DPP candidate attend PAC prayers and later call for Presidential Prayers, this could have out other candidates in a twist as failing to attend could have been seen bad by the majority. I wish they were strategic thinkers

All these churches in Malawi and all the prayers being offered up, and look at the state of the country! What good do they do? Our people get poorer and the country languishes at the bottom of the list as one of the poorest on earth. The only people who benefit are the pastors, priests, and church leaders who enjoy the fruits of the earth thanks to the donations from their faithful. Truly ‘religion is the opium of the people’.

Much as I respect church leadership I feel the Pentecostals are being divisive and pretending to be more Christian than PAC who have been the backbone of change in Malawi!

DR SAULOS KLAUS CHILIMA, our beloved PRESIDENT please don’t attend this event. We are praying for you and I know that the LORD in heaven has heard and continues to hear our prayers. Apostle Madalitso Mbewe’s prayer is no better – he should have advised the incumbent occupant at the state house to attend the prayers organized by PAC including signing the PEACE ACCORD. In fact, I have more respect for PAC as it represents all faith groups in the country as compared to a single pentecostal group. Malawi is not just for pentecostals. The Head of State should therefore… Read more »
