Churches hold prayers for Malawi soldiers in DRC

139

As some Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers are in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on peacekeeping mission, churches in the country prayed for them during prayers that were held at Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe.

The inter-religious prayers brought together Islam, Catholic Church, Anglican Church, Church of Central African Presbyterian Church (CCAP) and others under the theme “Signs of last days”.

MDF Deputy Commander responsible for Administration Lieutenant General Nundwe was the guest of honour.

Speaking to Malawi24 after the prayers, MDF Muslim chaplain Captain Saad Malovu commended the great work that the Malawi Soldiers are doing in DRC.

“These soldiers are performing a great job in DRC. They are worth to be prayed for; for their good health and that they must not face any external challenges in process of their operations,” said Malovu.

He further said that the Malawi Battalion which is currently in Democratic Republic of Congo should be prayed for to be performing their duties according to the wishes of God.

“In anything all human beings put God first, either civilians or soldiers. This is also a key thing in soldiers, we put God first in everything we do hence praying for the Malawian soldiers who are on peacekeeping mission in DRC to follow the suit,” said Malovu.

The recent Malawi Battalion left the country in May this year to help in keeping peace in DRC where there is conflict.

Some Malawian soldiers who were sent to DRC on peacekeeping missions in the past were commended by United Nations for their hard work, patriotism and determination.

  1. Kodi nkhondo za bible anthu samaphedwa kale read bible again Judges and kings you will see that men of God were involved in killing their enemies so ife ndindani don’t blame them let us pray for them too

  2. Mwachita bwino kuwapemphera kut akabwerako amoyo dora yomwe adzalandireyo azikamwera mowa ndikunyengera mahule ku bwandiro. Akadzaperekako chakhumi ku church mudzandidule chala chakuphazi. Zaziiii basi bwanji osapemphelera ulova wati phwiiiii mmalawi muno? Shupit zanu azibusa adyera inu

  4. Thats so funny. How can u pray for someone who dont care about yo prayer. Akumenya defenceless pple in roads why cant u pray for them to stop. And when they come back they die like chicken. In Malawi soldiers dont have despline. They abuse their power. If u go to other countries u wil never c a soldier smacking pple. They behave very well. They take orders not make orders. But in Malawi i think because the country is so poor. UNHRC must look in the matters as well. As we speak 28 soldier 4rm Tanzania govt are being charged with rape and sexual abuse in refugee camps. That is spreading Hiv. Pray for them but dont test God.

  5. These soldiers are very arrogant they dont need prayers.amaona ngati chilichonse its because of usilikali.they forget they are human beings.I dont eveny them,zida alibe makasinja a welensike amene akunyadira.TZ ikhoza kuwaphulitsa makape MDF.

    Thats why they are soldiers and thats why they were trained to kill.

  10. Guys you have talked enough of soldiers prayers and most of your comments are against, but remember that God is God of all people and my bible is telling me that even Moses, David or Joshua were praying when facing war so what about with we Malawian soldiers, let us pray for them daily God love them too

    • I think u are missing the point. U can pray for someone who is willing to get a prayer 1*. Then behaviour/manners of those same soldiers aganist their fellow Malawians. How can u go rampage barbaric beating pple without a proper reason simply that ndife masoldiers we are trained to kill. They forget that they are human beings like me and u. They take orders from superiors not make orders themselves.
