Veep Chilima urges Malawians to stop wasting time discussing trivial matter

Vice President Dr. Saulos Klaus Chilima  has asked people in the country to remain united in order to attain meaningful and sustainable development in the country and that they should stop wasting time discussing trivial matters.

Chilima urges the youth to emulate Jesus’ mother, Mary, whom he said cared for Jesus and suffered with Him in His death.

“Let us remain united if we want to develop our country instead of wasting time discussing trivial matters that cannot take us anywhere,” Chilima said at Lunzu Catholic Parish in the Archdiocese of Blantyre during Golden Jubilee celebrations on Saturday.

The vice president then hailed Lunzu Catholic Parish for being development conscious, saying it has helped the church to grow and become economically independent.

Chilima also urged the faithful to remain prayerful, saying with a prayer and unconditional love for each other, the nation would not live to witness abortions, thefts and killings.

He asked the congregation to work hard towards supporting the church financially, but cautioned church leaders who steal church funds to stop.

“President Peter Mutharika preaches that, as a nation, we have to be independent and be able to support ourselves so, too, as a church, we need to be independent. We no longer have white missionaries,” he said..

Speaking earlier, the Archbishop of the Blantyre Diocese, His Grace Archbishop Thomas Luke Msusa hailed the country’s leadership for its continued support to the Catholic Church and other denominations.

The Archbishop thanked President Mutharika for a pledge of K5 million he made towards an initiative to put priests on medical scheme.

He said the church was grateful that Chilima also donated K2 million towards the same cause.

The function which was marked by Holy Mass started with a liturgical procession to the venue of the celebration.

The jubilee was celebrated under theme ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus’ and it coincided with the celebration of a nun of Italian nationality Sister Annah of the parish who has also clocked 50 years in sisterhood.

Different congregations, government officials, political party representatives and traditional leaders were some of the people who attended the event.

Lunzu Catholic Church, which became a parish in 1968, was established in 1948 under the Catholic Institute of the Blantyre Diocese.

The parish has 11 out-station churches with close to 20,000 members.

Akuluwa akanangoyamba unsembe basi. Munthu wandale wanji wongolankhula pa church pulpit basi. When shall this boy address us on a political podium? Koma ndiye akukhomerelani ku DPPkotu. Koma ntchito yanu ilipo kapena anakuchotsani? Ndikudabwa nanutu man.

Is discussing about Chilima not a waste of time Mr Bodza lan’nanu? While the president and his vice are doing govt business the opposition is busy discussing who will pair APM in 2019. Is that not madness?

Malawians are not wasting time discussing trivial matters, its the Malawi government that is wasting our time – a government with no direction whatsoever.
