No holiday for you over Muslim celebrations – Livingstonia synod tells its workers

549
Livingstonia Synod

The letter which has been signed by Nyondo

The government might have said it is a holiday this Thursday and Malawians across the country will indeed have to observe the holiday but the Livingstonia synod of the CCAP has dismissed the holiday.

According to an internal letter which has been leaked to Malawi24, the general secretary for the synod Reverend Levi Nyondo has advised that there is no holiday for its members of staff this Thursday as the synod does not recognise the holiday.

“We don’t recognise the holiday on Thursday, as such you have to report for duties,” the letter orders.

Nyondo further says that the synod only recognises a number of holidays and on that list which he has shared with the members of staff there is no mention of the Eid holiday.

A member of staff who opted for anonymity told Malawi24 that he had received communication from the Synod to the effect that they will not be on holiday on Thursday.

“I don’t know who has told you but I can confirm that I saw the communication and, therefore, Thursday will be like usual,” the source told Malawi24.

As we published, the letter is going viral and with it are mixed reactions with some feeling that the church is championing religious discrimination while others feel that it is in line with the principles of the church.

“Livingstonia is not bound by Muslim beliefs and should not be forced to share those beliefs,” said a commentator.

On Thursday, Malawi will be observing a public holiday to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

  1. Then they are not inline with the government decissions.They can say the same with any public holiday if they wish.Its their humanie which is beind potrayed here.On the other hand they are violating their workers’ rights,too bad.TO government, keep a keen eye to those type of religion leaders, “IT TAKES MILLIONS OF LIVES TO BUILB RESPECT YOU DESERVE, BUT IT TAKES ONE STUPID FOOL TO DESTROY EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE”

  2. No comment almighty wil judge soon, palibe angapondeletse anthu wokondedwa ndi mulungu, ndipo iwo azawonongedwa basi, kumbukirani anthu amose anthunu dnt worry lets keep unity , paja amati tisayetsedwa imaan ( chikulupirilo )

  3. Nothing to quarrel here do what u think is right to u But in respect and honour to what God is commanding in christianity basis..

  4. For the sake of peace in the country, if government put this day as a holiday no one can oppose it. Good luck abusa u just showed that ur not a man of God. U have got ur own way to follow.

  7. what I can say is that Livingston synod leaders is a bubu why the funken Christmas stay together so you taking Muslims as Rubbish people Zausilu a revi

  8. One people, one nation koma zimene anena alivingstonia akutathauzaji ku mtundu wa amalawi? Nanga taphunzirapo chani? We are the one

  9. Kumene ndimakhala ine ma muslims ndi mpweche koma kunalibe holiday, ndiye kadziko kathu kosauka ngati aka idi ikakhale ndi holiday. Kupusa basi. moti tizilimbana kuti kodi titukula bwanji dzikoli. Holiday ndikachaninso? CCAP woyeeeee. Sitikufuna kukhalira manja ife.

  11. To finalise this we all know that our country is multi-religion and as citizens we must learn to respect each others believes and not firing in destructive words, To be honest when it’s easter, christmas Muslims too observe the holiday unless not an event like jubilees, fundraising and what so ever happens.

    Whether you want it or not religious holiday will remain firm and observed,

    #Eid_Mubarak!
    #Happy_Eid_Al_Fitr!
    #Din_Islam!

  12. Ngati ulipo ukuvomereza zimezi think twice mesa pa 25 december kumakhala holiday even ma bank satsegulidwa kodi mmabank amagwiramo ntchito ndi akhristu okha okha? Nonsense tiyeni tipasane ulemu ineso ndine khristu.

  13. We have different beliefs. Our constituion upholds freedom of choice, opinion, views, beliefs, religion without being taken to the contrary nor being criticised. We only have to respect others, do our work diligently and right things on the face of God. Some Christians go to church on sunday. Some believe it is not right (adventist for example) and their own way. No problem with that! We do have christian holidays! In the Nkhoma Synod, we have our own holiday! Neighther government nor Muslims believe in them. They carry out their work! I remember when I was in CCAP Mission Schools, we used to observe mission schools’ holidays and those of government. Church holidays are therefore many! We can not finish them all. We may not finally finish our course eventually!

  14. zanu izo. motive yanu tikuyiziwa koma sizingazatheke. kuzikonda ndi kuzikuza, mukhalila zomwezo. by the way, mwamvako msilamu akulengeza kuti kuli holiday?

  15. peter walamula tchuthi cha dziko not ccap holiday, nde penapake kumalolerana,christmas aslamu siimawakhuza koma amene ali m’boma aslamu amapumanawo, nde ntchito za synod agwile,koma zaboma apuma basi alemekeze amzawo, kodi enanu ndi akristu anji apa mulibe chikondi??

  16. Malawi is amultreligious nation according to the contitution. Therefore the iddy festival must be enjoyed by every citizen regardless of his religious belief. We have to differentiate between national holidays and local holidays. Iddy is anational holiday. Denying the right for other people to enjoy the holiday is telling muslims tha they have no right to worship in malawi

    • Musakhumudwe kwambiri ASILAMU ALI NDI UFULU ONSE OPEMPHELA….ZISALOWE NDALE.INE NGATI WACHIKHRISTU NDIKUSAMALIDWA NDI ASILAMU. SINDINGASEKELERE WANENA MTUMBUKA NYONDOZI .salam alykum.

    • Am not supporting the nyundo, but kutukwana do you think is better way of communication? You as Muslim you suppose to be exemplary. If I offended you in any way please forgive

  29. Its normal some are on duty right now even though others enjoying independence day today,I don’t think there’s an issue to debate.The only disappointing thing is not recognised it whilst the government has honoured it.

  30. i didn’t expect christians to say those destructive words,, lets not forgate that they do recognise christmass holidays,,,,, Malawi ,, where are you going,,, may the Lord have mercy on us,,

  40. Who the hell r u stop this given by government if u don’t want it u alone don’t give it a holiday but the rest will do holiday workers claim double pay n he should seat in the toilet all day typical stupid n ignorant person u get it

  41. This pegan Nyondo you said is a reverend? no not at all there’s no christ in this idiot. Am a Christian but icant back him he is evil.lets respect other people’s religion to avoid conflict. .its just a holiday we are not going to mosque as we r Christian. same on Christmas we have holiday.

  42. I can not brame any side,livingstonia they are not wrong according to them what l can say is,doesn’t matter if am keeping on my work to achieve and to cover my business who can arrest me?no one.am a christian not for livingstonia,sunday is a blessed day as we believe and we are taught do not work on sabath day becouse its holly but muslims they do work,who is complaining?nothing,leave the lingstonia alone they know what they are doing just focus on your family to work hard and fight against hunger diesease and you will be keep on holiday.good luncky to livingstonia

  43. There’s no any issue to fight here, Let them go work during the Eid celebration its their own decision, we as muslims we don’t have to worry about the livingstonia synod, my dearest brothers and sisters in islam what you have to know is Light and dark never be together therefore don’t be surprised…Let them do and say whatever they want to say…if they not gonna attend the holiday that’s will never remove anything from us, we will still strong and enjoy it very much.

    • THEY DID ASK ANYONE TO CEREBRATE WITH THEM BUT THE GOVERNMENT JUST DECLARED IT A HOLIDAY. THE WHOLE WORLD IMAKHALA PA HOLIDAY PA CHRISTMAS KOMA SIZITANTHAUZA KUT ASILAMU ANGAPANGE CEREBRATE. NKHANI NDI YA HOLIDAY OSATI CEREBRATION. ASILAMU NDI ANTHU NGATI IFE

  44. Kodi holiday Imeneyi nja akhilisitu kapena ndiya a Malawi? Nkuwona anthufe timalankhula zinthu zopanda pake chifukwa choganiza mochepa, mu silamu mu khilisitu ndi m’malawi holiday yi ndiya dziko la Malawi.

  45. Am a christian but Livingstonia Synod is un proffeeessional unspiritual and full of drunkard reverands and child molesters. Moslems conglatulate us at Easter and on our pagan cerebration in December.

    Some call him Allah some call him Jehova
    God is One

  46. What’s the problem here? Iwo anena za synod yawo momwe ayimvelera sizokakamizana izi,amene akufuna kupanga holiday apanga amene sakufuna sapanga eeeeish i don’t see any issue.

  47. But both you are religions.why can’t you understand each other?I thank Jesus He said he ddnt come to establish religion here on earth.He continued saying You have made the Word of God of no value thru your religion/tradition.musamapange choncho.

  48. No strange n it wont affect our celebration,Livingstonia Synod has always been stupid for simple issues they always look for mikangano…munakangana ndi a Nkhoma,kuyambitsa ndewu kumaliro polalikila mopusa just to mention afew this proves that Livingstonia Synod is a home of fools.

  49. But ask the synod that do malawian muslims got their rights to exercise religious practice in their on land?What the constuition says about that?Let us live together with peace and harmorny.Muslims do respect also your christmas celebrations but why cant u share the same unity to them?#Release them to observe the prayers

  50. Koma to be honest holiday ya msilamu isakhuze aliyense,,,mesa iwo akupanga holiday pa program yomwe anali nayo?nanga munamvapo zoti kuli holiday ya sda,,mboni,,ccap kapena mapente?why asilamuwa kufuna kuvuta??dzuka malawi dzuka.

  51. To be honest this holiday is 4 muslims a khristu angopezelapo mwai opuma but they have nothing to do with eid. the same with chrismass is for christians and not muslims, nawonso amangotengelapo mwai opuma but they have nothing to do with it. so what is the noise all about? i dont recognise eid but i wont work today simple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. Mmmm! abusa mwangotepo thembelero apa mwati ndinudi m’busa? kapena ndinu gulu lija limalimbikitsa nkhosa za mulungu kuti bible likuti kupha ndikwabwino kapena kuti chigoloro ndichabwino? kubisalira dzina laubusa pamene zintchito zanu ndiusatana! munthu wazelu zake ngati inu mungayankhule mau amenewa? ine anga ndimafunso mundiyankhe

  53. Zikanakhala bwino akanapanga okha ma Muslims azingotsazika muzintchito zawo kut ali ndi Holiday coz holiday yawo sipezeka pa calendar ndiza feg

  54. Why can’t they organise their own holidays. I wonder if in Saudi Arabia Christians have holidays…Muslim friends equalness doesn’t work anywhere

  55. Solution to this to have s fixed date,it helps to plan ones work throughout the year,holiday samangodzidzimutsana ngati tikpita kokalima kumunda, ,,

  56. Christmas is not a Muslim holiday, therefore, Muslim countries do not celebrate it. Muslims in the United States often request that their children not attend Christmas functions at school because the belief of Jesus, peace be upon him, being the son of God runs directly against the core Muslim belief.

  57. Kod Livhngstonia Yatan ? Ingopanga Zinthu Ngat Si A Christ Zanyanya Koma!! Nkhoma Ndi Blantyre Alangizen Ma Sibwen Ataika2 Asowa Chikond Chomwe Lili Lamulo Lopambana Zonse

  58. Religious Discrimination at its best – Livingstonia synod as a church & missionary should set a good example for its followers , workers & on observing national holidays. Why is this church always on the opposing side? Is it in a Tanzania or its ministers are self centred? This Church is holding its workers hostage–thats why its fighting Rev Chimwemwe Mhango of Kanengo CCAP becouse of ma jelasi kuti mwanayu alemera pa Lilongwe koma apite ku Mzimba. You forced Nkhoma synod to allow you to plant your churches in the central region why? Please change your aproach to some issues , a public holiday is a public holiday no matter which religion it stands for, Moslems are Malawians. Are your Church doctrins against other churche’s holidays?

  59. A Malawi Ndife Otembeleledwa .Nchifukwa Chake Tikulephera Kutukula Dziko Chifukwa Chogawikana Ndi Kumakangana Zinthu Zopusa Anthu A Fuko Limodzi. Palibe Nkhani Apa Yoti Tizitukwanizana.

  60. poti malemba akuti kondani adani anu, tingopempha kwa Allah kuti kuti awakhululukile anthu osazindikilawa, odzikonda ndiosadzilemekeza mmalwi muno muli mipingo yambili zedi why always livingstonia
    synod (adapha bingu awa munthu osalakwa asiyeni tiyeni ku Eid tikaswale nthawi yakwana)

  61. The government must take off christmas and day of goodwill+ easter holidays as Public holiday. Make them religious holidays not Public. What a fool revelend.

  62. No Benefits 4 A Xian To celeblate muslim holdy.CCAP is not a moon worshipers church,but GOD fear pple,and this country is not 4 muslim.they are lacky that xian we are the peace maker.

  63. What cn l say now,,,,, is all the Northerners support Rev. Be honesty here, why today Rv? ?????????. Time of Muluzi, Bingu, Mtila Banda, even Chihana, Muslims n Christians ws unity in Malawi n do respect. one another

  64. gud dicition from the livingstoner synod.pamasiku oti akristu ali pazisangalaro zawo timawawona amwenye akutsegula mashup la krismas.nde idi ufiti wadala bwanji?

  65. Kodi mukungolimbikira kunena kuti a CCAP akakhala ndi holiday asilamu samapanga nawo…kodi CCAP ndi chipembedzo kapena mpingo? Umbuli wanu wakula zedi ngati mukulephera kusiyanitsa pakati pa chipembezo ndi mpingo no wonder simutha kusiyanitsa munthu ndi Mulungu..mmaso mwadzadza mdima

  66. Its a Public Holiday,the only problem is that it is not specifically known when the moon will appear thus why it isn’t indicated on the Calender.So it is wrong to say it’s not a holiday, my appeal to leaderdship of Synod of Livingstonia is that please allow all the Muslims who are your employees to attend their celebrations,those who are non Mulisms should work.

    • Do Livingstonia Synod have Muslim employees ,I doubt .Hw .wat was the criteria for recruiting .
      So don’t think Muslim bodies too can recruiting a Christian . May be but ve no idea,that’s why Nyondo said let them celebrate thier eid ,but us,Livingstonia Synod , we r working .

  67. neither do christian force you to go for work during chrismass, just cerebrate your so called ed kaya no one will stop you

  68. Religious institutions will never observe and honour a pagan day as holiday. Any practice that is not Islamic in Islam and Christian in Christianity is paganism. Honestly as Muslims, our institutions do not observe Christian holidays. We don’t close schools and offices. Nyondo is right. Hate him for the truth.

  69. tsankho ndi lomwe munazolowera ndiye musiyeso kulemba ntchito anthu amipingo yina anuso………..

  70. It doesnt matter n that wont change anything i our Islamic belif.. zangosonyezera2 kupanda chikondi pakat pathu a Malawi. Kwa ife ndi chikhulupililo osat chisangalalo ayi.

  71. Livingstonia Synod Ndi Yozikonda Izi Zimaonetsa Khalidwe Losachita Bwino, Kodi Mziko Muno Azeru Ndi Inu Nokha. Zimenezo Mukanauzana Nokhanokha Osati Kuima Pa Chulu Pomwe History Yanu Ndi Yakuda, Musasochelese Anthu Ndi Zikonda Kwanu.

    • Point of correction. We Muslims dnt denie jesus. We acknowledge him as a prophet of God and not God.
      We respect Him and believe in his second coming as well. Infact you dnt qualify to be a muslim if you denie jesus as well as other prophets that were sent by God.
      Try to learn about wt you dnt understand before expressing opinions.
      As for the holiday…..if others feel they cant take part in it we have to respect that. Its not a sin to be part of wt you dnt blve in. No hard feelings…..
      Finally brother willy, lets not get defined by our religions. If God had willed, He could have made us all belong to one religion. Hate aint the way to by. Peace!

  72. Enanu mukunamapotu apa,ndani amene anagwira ntchito easter ya pitayi? kwa omwe anagwila ndiye kuti mwina anagwira half day,musatinamizilepo apa.even pa 25 December sitigwila ntchito,ndiye lero poti ife Aslam tili ndi tchuthi lero ,ndiye muli ndi zonena zambiri za ife,mutha kupanga zomwemukufuna palibe angakuleseni dziko ndila ufulu iri koma ife tili pa tchutibe mufune musafune .komanso mulungu akukhululukileni pazomwe mwalemba poyikila kumbuyo zomwe anena amzathu ampingo wa CCAP. pomaliza ndifunila abale anga nonse ACHISLAM EID MUBALAQUI

  73. nyondo z jst expressing his views,his statement z jst an opinion and not a fact,though partly it might be…. its jst said the same way someone might say 2 u that if u dont av maize,turn 2 mice,rats or grasshoppers.in malawi,everyone r entitled to this freedom of expression the way u r entitled to freedom of cashgating.some comments are using obscene (sp) lang against nyondo,do u hav right to revile at others opinions?

  74. But CCAP are motherfuckers, did we beg them to follow us?? And this is non of their business leave it, chomwe akubwerera poyera kumalankhula za holiday ya aslaam sindikuchiona, izi nzathu not yours.

  75. ASlam mwaphunzira,chizungu kkkkkkkkkkkk,talembani chiwalabu tione apa,,,,,,,,,,,,,zaholiday zisatikhudze zautsiri zanozo ife,,,,mr Nyondo takudyadirani……Maganizo anu abwino kwambiri…..

  76. Rev Nyondo….how can people see Christ in you if you always act and behave as a pagan… None believer? There are other issues that needs tolerance and coexistence as a senior person learn to build not for your sake but the work which you are doing.. The bible says in Romans..” Ngati nkotheka mukhala ndi mtendere ndi anthu ONSE ” that includes our muslim brothers who are also Malawians…

    • Haaaaaaaaaaaa I am a Muslim and Nyondo is right. Do Muslim schools and offices close during Christian holidays? When it is Nyondo and Synod, you call it intolerance. How?

    • aboma anacita izi pofuna kupatsa mpata amene akhudzidwa kuti apite ku ma pemphelo. Amene sanakhudzidwe sakukakamizidwa kusiya nchito zake. Palibe cimene alakwitsa a Nyondo.

  78. Well done Mr C.C.A.P even me i can not observe something which is outside my religion and belief, And to all christians who are going to consider this celebration know that you are hypocrate

  79. Moyo woyipa basi, buanj nthawi ya pasaka m’dziko muno mumakhala holiday ya masiku ambiri mbiri.nde wat about 1 day for edie.koma ndinudi anthu a mulungu?osadziwa umodzi

  80. That’s bull shirt they are Many holiday in Our Calender So u mean u a holiday u work Jerouse God never like anthu ozikonda ngati inu pitani mukagwile mukakhalako nokha Idiots.

  82. We as Muslims are not begging for national holiday so if you work or dont work we have no problem we reamain Muslims and we wish all pipo all the best whether u work or not

  83. I think the synod is right holiday izikhala ndi fixd date holiday yanji yongoyendela mwezi apa tiyeni timvetsetsanapo apa 4 instance ana olemba mayeso aform4 pa 5 july sanalembe mayeso amati ndi holiday imene mukukambai now mukutiso pa 7 july u mean mayeso ana sazalembatso? tiyeni anzathu achisilamu holiday izikhala ndi fixd day osati kungozizimuka lelo ndi holiday.

  85. No problem my best friends Christians and Muslims are coming to celebrate together as one, one love, one God. Inu muzakheza thukutha ife tikunjoya braai ndikuponda zikirii mumadziwa yathu ija, sorry.

  86. 1. Its the government’s directive not Muslims’.
    2. Observing a holiday doesn’t imply u celebrate as well.
    3. The Govt is above all institutions in the country so by barring ur workers from observing the holiday u r ignoring govt’s decree and thus being selfish.
    4. To us Muslims, ur observance or not will not v any impact.
    5. Nations are trying hard to bring peace between Christians and Muslims , and you are doing the opposite, so be prepared for the consequences.
    6. Y is ur synod so political? No wonder nd Nkhoma synod simuzagwirizana though u r of 1 faith. And thus hatred is in ur blood entangled in ur history

  87. A synod kumeneku ndiye kuganiza mozama. chifukwa amene mukumema ndi ogwira ntchito anu okha. mwachita bwino ngati kuti anthu amene salabadila za anzawo ndiye a silamu. keep it up Livingstonia with ur dynamic leadership

  88. Anthu inu kumamvetsetsa. a pansi pa synod a ngosankha anthu okhao omwe amagwira ntchito ndi synod. this is a very good move. keep it up Livingstonia. a silamu iwowo sangatsatile chinthu chuza a khristu ngakhale worldwide holiday

    • Ndiye Aslam ngati akukakamiza munthu kuti apange Holiday ayi koma vuto ndi udani omwe akuonetsa ndi Asilam coz samayenera mpaka alankhule pa midia ayi kwaoko akamangogwira tchito zaozo basi,

  89. I have never seen such bad and poor synod ngati livingstonia. Tikanakhala kuti tikupanga zimenezi ndife asilamu mwezi tili mkamwa kutukwanidwa koma poti ndi nokhanokha thats why muli chete. Palibe vuto lomwe mungabweretse kut tisiye chisilamu. Mukadaziwa mmene timachikondera mukadangosiya nkhaza zanu kuti titukule malawi lomodzi.

  90. Synod its the gorvement so there ir no need to dismis ovious muslims must hav aholiday even if apresdent would b amuslim it could b aholiday so asynod musapeputse chipembedzo chanthu ai

  91. Atrue Christian who loves Jesus Christ this holiday is useless and this is where Satan has put his traps for weak Christians thts why pakupezeka aKhristu ena mukunyoza abusa Wa.si onse akunena aMbuye aMbuye akalowe kumwamba.

    • Eeeh are u a terrorist or a Christian? Observing and following are different subjects. Was ur Jesus such intolerant?

    • Am a woman of God,who fears and love God,Jesus is my saviour that’s why I can’t celebrate this day,we are in the last days if we can’t becareful Devil will destroy us.or mutatani bambo wanga I can’t do this and this man is a strong man of God,or mutanyoza bambo u can’t let me down son of devil shame on u.

  92. It wont change anything, its normal for others to work during public holidays. We Muslims are wishing all people who will not observe the holiday a nice work.

  93. Zautsilu eti ife ndi akhristu palibe chifukwa choti tidzikatsatira zachisilamu zanuzo iwowo asilamuwo akhristufe tikakhala ndi holiday asilamu amaigwilitsa ntchito?? U my fellow Malawians u r so bustards why supporting them?? Mxeem keep it up Mr Revelend Nyondo

  94. then what change can be brought to us??? we wil stl be muslims and the Eid day will remain like that…watchout mungazayambe kuyaluka when the tables will turn

  95. Awuza anthu awo mma institutions awo achikhiristu. Ndiye pali nkhani? CCAP siboma atu koma ndi mpingo wa Chi Khristu. Chimodzimodzi achisilam akhoza kusachita recognise ma holiiday a Chikhiristu. Tamva kale kuti maiko ena samalora kumva ma holiday achikhristu. Pomwe awa agoti mma institution mwawo okhawo

  96. Ng’ombe zamadzira za living stonia synod kupusa basi ndi kuzikonda olo muyankhule sizitheka ai ,tonse mulungu ndimodz , ine wakupoto koma zokhazi sikugwirizana nazo i drp this subject zopusa basi

  97. Za ziii kuzikonda basi. Tikukamba za ku Malawi inu mukukakamba za ku mars. Anthu ali busy kuyanjanitsa mipingo kuti tonse tikhale amodzi monga a Malawi, inu muli busy kugawanitsa anthu. Wake up!

  98. inuuu kumamvaaa! Livingstonia z saying no to its workerz nt to every christian!! Go on celebrating yo eid! Mind u they r nt muslimz! Therefore i too say no nid for aholiday to them coz its non ov there concern! Big up mr Nyondoooooo

  99. Good evening Mr President,
    You told us to eat grasshoppers,we ate them
    You said we must eat rats and mices ,we did it,
    But only on this, I and my livingstonia synod we’ll not do that,
    It’s like telling non Muslims to convert to Islam,
    Thank you
    Sleep well Mr President, think of another thing for us to do tomorrow

  100. to me i said holiday for muslim people !!!!!!!!! im not muslim but i can say that musamasakhe kamba siachipembezo chimozi ayi kupusa eti munakhala bwanji anthu inu kusazindikila eti poti ma muslim ndi anthu ngati inu nomwe

  101. These workers do not belong to LS only but Malawi in general. What happens if someone obeys government directive? will they get fired? Whats up Sheikh Nyondo?

  102. according to my understanding, this was about livingstonia synod workers, I really don’t understand how this got out to the media, am CCAP member and I can not get forced to observe the protocol of a foreign religion, but I really blame the person who took this to the media, CCAP has nothing to do with Eddi!

  103. Hasbunallah wanaimal wakil (Allah is sufficient for me) with or without holiday, whether others joins or not! but one thing Mr Nyondo should remember when one is cheered for beating the drum nicely, he needs to concentrate otherwise he might loose the rythm and beat the same drum stupidly! when u made headline with positive things, take heart, otherwise u might make headline with foolish ideas and in the process loose the shine. Muslims r not cry babies who owez seek pple’s attention.

  104. Zoonazake ccap sakulimbana ndi asilam ai koma akulimbana ndi boma chifukwa holidayana sinayabe lelo inayamba kale mbuyom ubwino wake ku amarica analengeza za holiday ya EiD

  105. it’s true why tizisangalalira zigawenga zimenezi? paliponse mumva ISL yapha anthu kwakuti ndiye pano tiziti asilamu akuti holiday? holiday yakupha anthu osalakwa?

    • ISIL is made of western Christians and headed by Jews so don’t blame Muslims who are just victims. My God remove ur ignorance in time!

    • Iweyo ndiwe ignorant because you know the truth, everywhere ukumva kuti gulu lauchifwamba la asilamu so osathawa chithu chomwe amachita, kodi inu mumakana chilungamo bwanji?

    • Chili chonse chomwe umamva pa midia sichoona bro, udzifufuza bwino zinthu mmene zikuyendera pa dziko pano, ngati Isil ali Asilam mchifukwa chiyani akupha Asilam ku Iraq, turky, Saudi Arabia, magulu amene si Asilam ayi koma ndi njira chabe yofuna kuipitsa dzina la chisilam coz akudziwa kuti chislam mchipembedzo choona ndiye akufuna kuti anthu ngati inu musatsatire chipembedzochi

    • sindikukhulupirira zomwe ukunena chifukwa ndikaona press tv ndi ya chisilamu and amanena kuti magulu achisiramu, tikapita kuchipembedzo mmmm amwene inu sindifuna kunamizidwa or ukunamizani chifukwa chipembedzo choona chili mumtima wa munthu wokhulupirira Mulungu molungama.

    • Hahaha ukusalira ndiweyo.if I may ask what du have, that u can be proud of?yes mukulamulira but wealth is ours kkkkkk can’t stop laughing

    • Mulinavichi mwawanthu wa kuthengere na ku mapiri, asi mukusambira sukulu kuti mukamanye ku Blantyre naku Lilongwe,mukukhozga soni mwawanthu,mukujiyowoyeramo bweka nthena.useless human beings,lekani kujitemwa.

    • Mwawanthu wakukhara Ku mapiri mungawa navichi imwe,asi mukusambira sukulu kuti mukamanye ku Blantyre na Lilongwe, wanthu wakukhozga soni awa kkkkkkkk.

    • Aaaaa I we nmene ukuonekeramo tiziti mukulamulura kkkkkkk akulamulirra Ndi Petter and his family not u.kkkkkkkkkkkkkk inu Ndi ine tiyeni tingowona kuti moyo wathu uyenda bwanji kkkkkkk kusaziwa nkufa komwe.

  106. Sitinachite kupenpha anawononga ndi Anthu andalewa ife Aslamu tilibe nazontchito tikapemphela mmawa CCAP zanu izo zankutubas

  107. As CCAP blantyre synod member, babtised and ndimapereka chamalumbiro,,, Ndachita manyazi kumva Uyu mukuti Nyondo kaya mukuti chani,,,, Kodi ameneyi ndi Mmalawi???? andiyankhulitsa pambali ineyo….During christimas all Muslims go on holiday why this nosense I hear from reverend Nyonyo yes Rev Nyony0 ….. Wht am getting here is that he is punishing workers from the synods institutions. after all the proportion of muslims working in Nyondos synod is just very small as compared to those working in gvt across the country…. so No impact @ all … ABIG SHAME TO CCAP….FORTUNATELY AM NOT IN UR STUPID TYPE OF LEADERSHIP SYNOD… NOSENSE

    • Muzapembedza nazo fano munjira yosazindikila.I cant go deep coz mwachita kale manyazi ndi faith yanu but dziwani njira yakumanzere siyophathatiza ndiyachigulugulu.

  108. yaaa Nyondo alibhoo achina boko halaam samapanga nawo ma holiday. Aife akhrisitu ndiye palibe chomwee walakwa nyondo paja musaiwale CCAp ndiboma palokha

    • A CCAP MWALOWA LITI NDALE KUTI APA UZIBWEBWETA KUTI NDINU BOMA? USASOKONEZE ZOKAMBILANAZI WANVA? INU A CCAP MUKAKHALA BOMA IFE AKATOLIKA TIKHALA NDANI?? MTUMBUKA ETI….? NYONDO WAKOYO NGODZIKONDA NGATI IWE LONGWE. ASIYE ASILAMU.

  109. İt is not the Muslim Associated of Malawi which declares such dates as Holiday The Malawi Government does. .Such resolution are always made to balance the favour our Democratic goverment does to different groups of People.Maybe the synod is at War with the Government not directly against muslims because they have never behaved like this before.But what the synod should know is that Malawi is an interfaith society in which people of different believes coexist..They need to respect the polical commitment the Malawi Government makes to its People so that they may live in peace and harmony….This has been the practice ever since…..So Please do not poison our Democracy wth your naive immature selfish ideas….Lastly the Synod should replace its incumbent leaders as they have acted against What We,Malawians. Believe Brings Peace in Our Country.

  110. asilamu ma tools pasi mawa Eid mubalaka ndipo ndikufunila aliyese chisangalalo chabwino, awo anyondowo mulungu awakhululukile satana ndamene wakwenya malaya, ndale sapanga pamulungu musamale

  111. Chislam ndi chikhristu zinachita kubwera muno muAfrika,,,,,Chomwecho ine Rasta ndaima patali kumangoona chimpwilikiti pakati pafuko langa hahahaha!!

  112. its none of our business if they don’t observe it….they just shows how selfsh they are…..its just one day but if its about Christians things they take ten to fifteen days of holiday to celebrate and it doesn’t matter

  113. Dont insult and shout on Nyondo and i support him. Most of muslim countries especially chaku middle east , they regard christmass holiday useless and amapanga whatever they want on it. So you people, why you want to observe muslims holiday cerebrations while they ignore yours christianity holiday cerebrations? Think immediately about it and you should also follow zochitika on the globe osamangoyankhula muchimbuli mkati.

    • So ur foolishness is surpassing his as in middle eastern nations; Muslim population in them is from 95 to 100% so Christmas azimupangra ndan? Its one Malawi with a huge percentage of Muslim along with u Christians and we Muslims observe ur holiday y not do the same? Umbuli and kuzikonda.

    • Having a population of 95% out of 100% is not an impressive reason. Christmass is for worldwide holiday cerebrations, why the middle easterners can’t participate it? Even here in malawi, not all of you observe it. Thats 50 : 50. If you said , ndife mbuli and kuzikonda, inuyo ndinu mbuli too.

  114. No problem with that, it’s not by force and that declaration will never move anything away from eid’s celebrations, that’s their belief.

  115. amenewo agwla ntchito mumaofesi awo okha cox C.C.A.P ndiozikonda komaso nyela ndichifukwa amagawanikana okhaokha ndkumasekula ma radio at yasinod yawo yokha at ena aseguleso radio ya CCAP Mpingo umozi koma afna asekule ma radio 4station, ndie sixodabwsa iwo kususa

  116. If my religion says no to other religions they why should I be forced to, livingstonia synod is right, Christians a Nd Muslims have different beliefs so why should they bowl down to other people’s beliefs? During Easter holidays,muslims do there things freely,they run their businesses, they go to their Muslims schools, let it be there a holiday for those who recognised it, I can’t praise two Gods at time,Hell No!!!

  117. yawo ija Atumbuka.kuzikonda basi….why cant we cerebrate eid together?and government yapanga declare iwo nkutsutsa…matako ako nyondo

  118. Koma Kuzikonda Kumeneku Mutati Mukhale Atsogoleri Adziko Mungakhale Ndi Anzanu Osiyana Maganizo? Koma Za Chipembezo Ndizopsa Osamathamanga Poganiza.

  119. ..,,whatever you say I don’t care as long as I stay at hom or get to work and being paid double that’s cool for me”how ever livigstonia just show us how selfish you are///f**k dem

  120. Ndine wa chi christu. Koma tisaname inu a Livingstonia apa mwaonetsa moyo ozikonda.Thats why atumbuka amadedwa kumalawi kuno. Tsankho si labwino ayi.

  121. #Religion. All these hatred minds are its roots. U hate that religion because u were born this religion. If u were born in that religion u would be hating this religion. #Bullshit.
