Church grouping rally behind Msonda on homosexuality

219

Weeks after his Facebook post in which he said that gays do not deserve any human rights and should be killed landed him in trouble as gay rights campaigners sued him, People’s Party Publicist, Ken Msonda may now afford a smile as a religious grouping of Christians and Muslims is siding with him.

The Christian and Muslim youths calling themselves Youth with a Vision have started a campaign aimed at mobilising moral and financial support from Malawians to help Msonda in court.

Ken Msonda

Msonda; Being supported.

The grouping has opted for the tag ‘Team-Ken Msonda’ and is now appealing for help to support the politician.

The People’s Party spokesperson who was expressing his personal opinion described homosexuality as a sin and said it should not be legalised.

Msonda is quoted as saying that gays are “worse than dogs and deserve to be sent to hell or to be killed.”

His remarks attracted the wrath of Malawi Law Society (MLS) who condemned Msonda and said the PP spokesperson had shown irresponsible behaviour which will incite violence in the country. “As all right thinking members of society would agree with us, however, this irresponsibility takes an unacceptably different turn when political leaders and opinion makers take the lead. The society finds Mr Msonda’s alleged utterances contemptible, irresponsible and bordering on hate speech,” said MLS in a statement signed by its president John Suzi Banda.

Gay rights advocates, Cedep and CHRR then decided to drag Msonda to court to answer a charge of incitement to break the law under section 124 (1) (b) of the Penal Code. The Section states that “any person who, whether in writing or by words or by his behaviour or otherwise— (a) solicits or incites any other person to fail to comply with or to contravene any law in force in Malawi or in any part thereof; or (b) indicates or implies to any person that it would be incumbent or desirable to fail to comply with or to contravene any such law, shall be liable to imprisonment for five years”

According to the Section, claims that one’s incitement could not lead to actual violence cannot be used as a defence.

Speaking to the media, CHRR executive director Timothy Mtambo said that they had dragged Msonda to court not because he specifically targeted gays but for his remarks. He said: “If he was saying we should kill all short people, we would equally drag him to court.”

Tiyeni ife tikonze mitima yathu kuti ubale wathu ndi Mulungu ukhale wabwino posayang’ana za wina,chifukwa munthu aliyense azalangidwa ndi ntchito zake. Mulungu atithandize Amen

  11. Hitler also exterminated the Jews because he thought they were inferior and werent people. Msonda shares the same dehumanizing sentiments. It’s sad to see such maniacs in positions of influence and people supporting them.

    And the law is clear and unambiguous. You shouldn’t kill your fellow human beings. Even the bible doesn’t supersede the law and It’s sad that when people are even willing to break the law it is not to defend but to kill those who have done them no wrong. Gah!

  12. Tisazunzike ndi nyasi zaozo chifukwa choti tikati izi ayi azitiopseza ndi tindalama taoto.God will fight for him.Msonda yemweyo kuti wa wa wa!!!

  13.

  17. There is no sin which is bigger than the other. Homeseuality is a sin the same as prostitution, smoking, drunkerdness e.t.c Before God all these sins will lead to hell by the pipo who commit them. Lets not take a law into our hands! These are signs of the end of times. whom do you think u are to stop the time to come to an end ? whether u r a homo or not if u dont follow the words of God, u shall perish. Dont think that those pipo are more sinners than yourself. Stop your sinful way and receive Jesus Christ as ur personal saviour, then u will know the truth. Amene akudziwa kuti sanachimwepo ndipo alibe uchimo ayambe kupha ma gay tione what will follow! Kuweruza sikwatu koma mwini wake Mulungu. WATCH YOUR MOUTH!

  18. What are the views of APM on this? Should we say that he is failing to give a directive on this? I don’t think the Prof. can be too dull to say no to homo in this peaceful malawi… Otherwise he must leave the presidency to Msonda and Lucias respectively.

  19. Ndani tikuyenera kuchita naye mantha?.Ngati dziko tikuyenera kuchita mantha ndi yemwe ali woposa zonse”YEHOVA”.Mayiko ndi mabungwe othandiza dziko lino sangayime mukwiyo wa YEHOVA omwe akhonza kuutsanulira pa dziko la Malawi kamba ka makhalidwe aziwandawa.

  20. Churches, Politicians , In fact all Malawians are being divided over stupid and silly thing. You know what my dear friends, the devil is very happy for his job well done. his plan to divide Malawi and make them enemies to each other is very successful. People are dragging each other to court instead of using that money to develop the country. Instead of Churches to preach about salvation they are busy arguing and dividing their members on this evil matter. kkkkkkkkhahaha! !! kkkkkkkkhahaha! !! Oh my poor Malawi .

    What Does The BIBLE Say About Homosexuality . . .
    “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.
    It is an abomination.”
    (Leviticus 18:22)
    “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman,
    both of them have committed an abomination.
    They shall surely be put to death.
    Their blood shall be upon them.”
    (Leviticus 20:13) ……

    • And then you’re cherry picking verses from Leviticus when it comes to homosexuality, extend your pseudo-exegisis to the other horrible verses and demand their application to the quasi-Christian community around you.

    • Exactly! There are verses in the bible that say people can buy slaves and beat the shit out of them till they almost die. If they die then they have sinned but if not they are right with God because the slave is their property Exodus 20:21-22… That is proof the bible says a lot of repungnant shit

    • How many Christians don’t eat pork today? And women still go to church within 66 days after giving birth to a girl; farmers still reap from the very edges of their fields; lying, busy kumeta zosema mutu etc Gimme a break

      The Bible is irrelevant in this matter. If you can’t think for yourself and need to quote the bible without even for a second thinking how bad it sounds then you are nothing but a sheep person meant to obey and have nothing to offer society in moral progress.

      Quoting the bible because you Christian won’t save you from the law. It is what got that idiot Msonda in trouble in the first place

    • Typical of deluded dimwits who have illusory knowledge and don’t wish to have their intellect questioned. If you don’t want to be questioned then don’t display your sheer intellectual handicap. It’s funny that you’re quoting another biblical verse without disputing that the Bible in one verse forbids pork. You can’t even use the Bible as authority in constitutional matters of a secular society. If you dispute that then you’re not even worth my time here. Don’t rape the word “truth” if you can’t even stand the heat of a rigorous probing.
