Rev Munthali says if it were possible to choose who should die clergy would settle for corrupt Cabinet ministers

The reverend Maurice Munthali of Livingstonia CCAP Synod on Thursday sent mourners at the funeral of veteran politician and patriot Robson Watayachanga Chirwa into stitches after attacking politicians for wrongful self-enrichment including Cabinet ministers for being corrupt.

.Reverend Munthali in his closing prayer said he wished the clergy had powers to choose who should die, saying they would settle for corrupt Cabinet ministers and other greedy looting politicians instead of patriots and statesmen.

Rev Munthali: Rebuked corrupt Cabinet ministers and politicians

“Right now, we are mourning two funerals, one for Robson Chirwa and the other for corrupt people,” said Munthali who drew rounds of applause.

“It it were possible that we choose who should die, we would have asked God to spare Robson Chirwa and get these greedy ones,” he added.

Munthali said death was evil to take away Chirwa who despite being an influential minister during Kamuzu Banda regime, he lived a humble life and did not loot public resources as is the case of current leaders, saying God whold have taken the corrupt ministers and other politicians first for bring misery to impoverished Malawians.

“Robson Watayachanga Chirwa lived a humble life; he retired in a small house [not the cashgate mansions of politicians and Cabinet ministers of today]. He was an extraordinary politician and minister not these ministers of today who are stealing an inconsiderate of the poor Malawians,” said Reverend Munthali.

Chirwa served as Legislator for Mzimba South East and former president late Kamuzu Banda appointed him Minister of Transport and Communication in 1976.

He also served in different portfolios such as Regional Minister for the North, Minister of Trade and Industry, Minister Without Portfolio (Minister of State in the President’s Office) and Administrative Secretary of the MCP.

During the 2013 Independence Celebrations, former president Joyce Banda honoured Chirwa with an award in the Grand Achievers Category, appreciating his good service and good conduct to the nation.

He died on Tuesday in Lilongwe  of hypertension at the age of 86.

Chirwa will be laid to rest Friday at his Yolam Village, Traditional Authority Mabulabo in Mzimba.

Chief Secretary to Government Lloyd Muhara said  President Peter Mutharika has delegated Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Francis Kasaila to represent him at the burial ceremony.

    Mind youRobsin was in the Government with Kamuzu during those attiditirs6. So NYINDI YOU TAKE CHIRWA AS A SAINT.
    YOU ARE A FALLEN REVEREND.
    TOO MUCH POLITICS IN YOUR DEAD MUND.
    IF I WERE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN YOU AND A SATANUC BELIEVER TO FIE,I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN YOU.

  2. hatton says:

    If,I too, were given a chance to choose who to die, I would have settled for the Livingstonia synod clergy for torturing and persecuting the evergreen and heavily anointed Rev. Chimwemwe Mhango.

  3. Prophet says:

    The clergy should always strive to build and not divide the nation. It is not good no matter how to wish one dead while you enjoy life by the same God you profess to serve. Comments like this if not well checked can bring anarchy in a country. Men of God learn to live your billing as you carry a prophetic role which you must not abandon recklessly.

  4. Neneni says:

    Let’s hope the Rev. Is an Angel without any sin

  5. alex kaliba says:

    Tumbukas ,so desperate

  6. Patrick Maluwasa says:

    If you were given a chance to choose who should die, u could have killed alot of people including yourself because u have a case to answer before God. Are you really a true and faithful man of God??????

    1. Mdala ameneyi si Reverend,ndi munthu wandale and wangobitsala ku mpingo koma maganizo ake ndi oipa kwambiri.
      Kodi iyeyo akuganiza kuti umenewo unali ulaliki?
      Zikuwonetsa kuti,alibe mphatso ya ulaliki ndibwino apite kwawo adzikakama mkaka wa ng’ombe rather than kumanamiza wanthu kuti iye ndi Reverend.

  7. Chipapwiche Kajhalwiche says:

    May the soul of the humble Hon. Robson Wtayachanga Chirwa rest in peace.

    Mulisya wachitumbuka tsopano…..kuiwala greed ya Livingstonia Synod ku Lilongwe…..double standards using the mouth to condemn greed…..the bedrock in the culture of all tumbuka ethic groups.

  8. chakumadzulo Banda says:

    God’s time is the best time, amenewa akuyankhula ngati si abusa bwanji, we all know that people are looting public resource and even God knows, he know everything before we do.

  9. dziwapo says:

    Wishing someone dead is a sin before God. Its very unfortunate that these words are coming from M’busa. It means you dont read the bible.

  10. Ndasauka says:

    Evil

  11. lesley says:

    MMMMM, Abusa musaweruze. If it were you that time, Saul wouldn’t have been saved to have the Apostle Paul we ar celebrating today. Rahab wouldn’t have been saved. Moses the murderer wouldn’t have led Israel, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Ubusatu sufunika ukali ngati wanuwu!

  12. KK says:

    God’s ways is not our ways, God thinks than we do. Death does not spare everybody whether you are living a humble life, a righteous life or you are evil, the truth is we will all die one day. IT is not only thieves or politicians who are supposed to die neither sinners. Death is for all of us and the only way out is to repent. Talking about repentance, i mean everyone should repent even pastors, Bishops, Reverends, politicians, chiefs, thieves, prophets. Because if you repent you die but you will go to paradise instead of hell. Finally, death does not ask permission from pastors or politicians or relatives when it is your turn. REPENT!!

  13. chilombo says:

    Then almost the entire cabinet would be dead kkkkk

  14. PIDO says:

    Despite all these praises, Hope Robson Watayachanga Chirwa received Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior . If not he will rot in hell.

  15. CHIDIDI says:

    A busa limeneli ndi pemphero kapena ndale! onse amene akuthilira ndemanga zoyamikira Rev Munthali sizoona ai ndipo Mulungu sangamve pemphero limeneli. Rev ingoyambani ndale basi osati kumabisalira ku mpingo ai. Inu ndi amene mutiipitsira mbiri ya Livingstonia.

  16. Chawezi Luhanga says:

    “My ways are not man’s”….says God, a direct warning to people of thoughts like the Rev. God knows man better and more than man do because He made him. He knows that man is fallen therefore his reasoning is corrupt, his justice is selective and everything with man is imperfect after the fall. The professed reverend should remember that death is inevitable and takes anybody (rich or poor, free or slave, executive thieves, pastors, Reverends as himself etc) as long your day to pass on is due. The men of collar should preach unity in such gatherings, vengeance is for God alone and if Rev. Maurice preaches about true God, he is not entitled to condemn anyone. There are so many examples in his bible individuals that were marked as corrupt (Zachaus), murderer (Saul) etc.. but God transformed them and used them in his service.

  17. Nachika says:

    If I was near Rev. Nyondo at the time he was presenting his speech at the funeral, I would have hugged him for his true remarks. These Cabinet Thieves would have been the ones having miserable deaths. But as long as God is alive and Jesus died for us on the cross, they will reap what they are sowing.

  18. Senzangakhona says:

    OOhh yes. GOD is keeping these corrupt idiots for reasons. When they leave govt, be it in 2019 or any other year they should witness true governance. Not the kind of governance where friends and relatives are shielded even in the work overwhelming evidence of theft by public servants. They must see that it is possible to run government affairs without stealing from the poor. Yes, God is indeed keeping corrupt government officials for reasons; when they get arrested after leaving government they shall be vivid examples about how the devil can rise you and later make you fall from heights so that the would be offenders would think twice before they act. And as much as they think they have already won the 2019 elections God can pull a shocker and tables can be turned around.

  19. Trendex says:

    EVERY TIME IS GOD’S TIME. MAY BE GOD WANTS THESE CASHGATERS TO REPENT AND BECOME ROLE MODELS. HOWEVER, THEY HAVE ALREADY DESTROYED AND PLUNDERED THE ECONOMY OF OUR COUNTRY. SOME OF THEM HAVE DUO-CITIZENSHIPS SUCH THAT THEY CAN GO TO AMERICA AND SETTLE WITH THEIR CHILDREN.

  20. Bulutu says:

    May Your Soul Rest in Peace RC. You indeed served the people of Malawi honestly. Some of us were there and we can testify.

  21. A MPINGO says:

    IF WE DO WELL
    WE SHALL MEET IN NEW
    PARADISE !!!

    RIP
