The Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) has condemned President Peter Mutharika for hitting out at Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua.
Speaking as he was presiding over the ground breaking ceremony for Daeyang Luke University Teaching Hospital in Lilongwe, Mutharika said Joshua makes false prophecies.
However, the general secretary for EAM, Pastor Francis Mkandawire says the president has behaved inappropriately.
“I think the president was not supposed to comment on that issue. As the father of this nation he was supposed to unite us. For me I can conclude that the speech was not good,” said Mkandawire.
The EAM general secretary has since called on politicians to stop commenting on religious issues since they are sensitive.
Mutharika’s outbursts came after a prophecy by Joshua who said an African leader would die though the prophet did not mention the name of any president.
Yesterday, Malawian prophet Austine Liabunya reacted by saying that God is angry with the Malawi leader and He will take away the president’s life.
