President Peter Mutharika has urged religious leaders in the northern region to pray tirelessly to fight against corruption, theft, intolerance and the killing of albinos.
Speaking on Saturday at Mzuzu State Lodge when he met religious leaders from the Northern Region, the president reminded the church leaders the reason God chose them to serve his people at this time.
“God has chosen you in this generation to ensure the spiritual welfare of this nation. As Government, we will always enforce strict laws to end moral corruption. We are doing our part, and we will do our part. But you must also do your part,” said Mutharika.
He proceeded by saying that government expects church leaders to teach and condemn human trafficking, corruption, theft, intolerance and the killing of albinos.
“These and other devilish acts are committed by your flock! You have the duty to ensure that Malawi has the right moral character,” said Mutharika.
The Malawi leader also added that all leaders across the social spectrum are chosen by God and should work hand in hand to serve humanity.
“Both the church and the state share the common duty of serving God’s people. Politics and religion are not in contradiction. I want you to know that you and I have a common mission under God. If you support me, and I support you, we will serve one God better,” he said.
