The CCAP synod of Livingstonia has said some of the problems the country is facing are a result of God’s punishment for not obeying His laws with the one about a feared legalization of homosexuality standing out.
The synod’s general secretary, Reverend Levi Nyondo, made the remarks and said government must make its stand known on the issue of gays in the country.
Nyondo said government must know that its responsibility is to protect people in the country and to do God’s will because Malawi is a God fearing nation. He added that government should not consider the money we get from the countries which are pushing for legalization of same-sex marriages.
However, government’s spokesperson, Jappie Mhango says government will do nothing on the matter. He said Malawians are the ones who will choose what to do.
Mhango said different government departments are pondering on what are the best ways of taking people’s view on the issue.
This comes days after some Catholic Bishops who met President Peter Mutharika said they oppose homosexuality and are against its legalization.
