Anti- abortion demos in Lilongwe yesterday.

In a petition presented to the government, the two religious bodies have describe the bill as “evil” arguing that it is contrary to the teachings of the Bible and Quran.

The march dubbed citizens ‘Citizens Match for life and family’ celebrated under the theme ‘Lighting the candle’ brought together other members from religious believers like the Quadria Association of Malawi, Church for Central African Presbyterian and the Rastafarian community.

Fr Henry Saindi

Fr Henry Saindi; We are not a secular nation.

In his speech ECM General Secretary Father Henry Saindi said Malawi is not a secular state rather a God fearing nation, hence no need to legalize abortion and same sex marriages as it is against the wish of God.

After receiving the petition on behalf of parliament, law maker, Juliana Lunguzi assured the two religious families that they will act in line with the issues outlined in the petition.

“I am a Catholic, a woman and at the same time a professional nurse and I wouldn’t accept the abortion bill and same sex marriages. Pray for us so that we are guided by the Holy Spirit when we are in the August house” said Lunguzi.

In an interview with Malawi24, Quadria Association of Malawi publicity secretary sheikh Jafali Kainga said human life must be looked after from time of woman conserving to time of death arguing that the bill is a direct attack to life.

The match saw Malawians against passing of the bill by storming the roads of Malawi on Tuesday morning.

  3. Thats good, God should shower you blessings our law makers, malawi is a fearing nation, such demonic practice must happen elsewhere not here in Malawi. I think we should adopt sharia law for these gays and lesbians to know how serious we are!

    • Kkkkkkkkkkk! Mr. Kaunda, bwanji mukulemba zinthu zopanda substance pa public domain. Okay, ngakhale sizololedwa ndi malamulo, anthu amagwirilira akazi, kuba, kuphana komanso kuchita katangale. So zimenezi tizilorenso? By the way, ku USA komwe mumaona ngati kuchimake kwa homosexuality only less tha 15 out of 50 states have legalised it. Anthu oti lobbying yawakanika kumeneko akumathamangira ku Africa to lobby for these silly things bcoz ma Africans ndi atulo komanso osauka. Who told you that abortion or homosexuality is legal dziko lonse, muzizitsata man osamakhala ndiulesi.

  6. I do not understand how any MP can guarantee such a thing, the ballot is secret, and so it should be. Further, democracy in a SECULAR republic, is democracy. It should not be governed, or guided, or influenced by any one church or religion! Of course, this is irrespective of this issue or bill at hand!

  7. Sitidzakuvotelansoni, Mwatikwana Komanso Muthetse Mabanja Anuwo Mupite Kumaiko Komwe Amalola Lamulo Lanuli Mukakwatile Azanu Amuna.Osamapanga Lamulo Lophweteka Ena Ngati Zomwe Mumachita Mnyumbamo Ena Safuna.Zopusa!!

  8. Koma pepani muzikhalako serious polemba nkhani, I mean you should be paying much attention to grammar when writing because it is boring and very distractive reading a news with full of broken English like yours. Do that if you want to be more successful and a leading figure of online news. With what you are writing, people will find it very abtrusive to believe in what you are writing because of lack of serious

  9. Ndiuchitsilu ndichifukwa chake ife kumalawi timakuthawa timakana uchitsilu ngati umenewo naoso atsogoleli amene akulamulila pan chikondi alibe agalu

  10. Weather bill is pass or not but I don’t see a defference coz those who want to keep pregnat they will keep it as the wish and those who abort it they always do it even if its againest the law. (Let’s just turn to god is the one who. Can sove our problem)

  11. The government of Malawi ,listen to the citizens for their grievances ,MPs don’t just every time follow the rules & laws of the western countries particularly US. Where Satan has put his throne Rev 2 v13 she wants to deceive the whole world ,whatever she propose you just follow her ,our MPs pls don’t pass the bill ngati nditima $s two tikhale zanyansi ayi kwathufe

  12. Tiyeni tingosusananazo koma tisatsindike kuti Malawi is a God fearing nation. It was a good fearing nation those days zonsezi izi kulibe not anymore. Kusowa kwa mvula, njala, kusika kwa kwacha, katangale, ngozi ndi zizindikilo zoti Mulungu watopa ndi mtundu wathu wolamulilidwa ndi ziwandawu. Nyanja ndi iyo ikutapidwa poyelayelayo. Ufiti ndi nsanje ndiye pepani. Ukayamba business akukawapo, pokhapokhapo nawe ukakhwime.
    Ambuye tithandizeni.

  13. Anthu opanda mzeru azisapota zimenezi. Mmalo mokonza mavuto anjala, magetsi komanso mazi ndi mankhwala mkumalimbikisa usiluwu. Mukachosa achemwali anu. Asiyeni amalawi aziopa mulungu.

  14. For those who are screaming…… no! no! don’t pass the bill ,they surely show their ignorance because the country, Malawi, is not governed by the bible instead it’s governed by the constitution… look! don’t get complicated the country, Malawi, is not a church so tell your pastor not to pass this bill in your church. Because this bill does not force you to marry your fellow man or woman or to abort but it fights for the freedom of people who need it…. tamvana?????????

  15. Thats it.Glory glory to God.We say no to Arbotion and Homosexuality Malawi iz a God fearing nation dont ever turn it into soddom and gomolla.Long live malawi the warm heart of Africa

  16. Satana Wathana Nafe Amalawi, Kudzichemelera Ife ngowopa mulungu!! Taonani Paliponse Ungawone Satana akupangapo zake, wa hurker cctym zonse, Basi Phee..Kumakambirana Zimenezo,munthu Wapulumuka Kozipha Basi Amangidwe Ndiye izi nzichani.

  17. He Who Believes In God Scriptures Can Not Do This Evil Things, Remember Abortion Is Killing Samesex Marriges Is Prohibited According To God Scriptures, So These Two Things Are Completely Evil To The Almighty God Please My Fellow Friends Lets Stay Away With Them To Avoid God’s Anger Thanks.

  18. God is wotking here. Remember when people with reprosy wanted to seek food from the enemies of Israel? The enemy army thought they were being attacked by a very superior army and fled. Leaving food,weapons etc.
    Israel defeated the enemy without throwing a single arrow nor javelin.
    God will defeat these evils. The enemy of life.
    Suppose we were to say every old person must be removed because they teach youngsters bad habits such as ufiti kuba kutukwana and so on. Would old people not resist? Now you take advantage of an innocent,defenceless child and kill it!

  19. Atsogoleri kapena kuti andalenu akamakulumbiritsani muzilumbira mdzina la ma donors chifukwa mukakhala mmipandomo mukumaopa kwambiri azungu kuposa mlengi,,,,mukulora zofuna zazungu mpomwe mavuto akuchulukirabe,,,,olo ku nyumba yamalamuloko mukungophimba maso amphawi uchitsiru umeneu munauvomereza kale kale!!

  20. Am not of the contraly opinion with those against the legalisation of the act but whether we want or not, this will one day pass. imagin other country legalising adultery and no criminalisation. do you think this wont happen?. Jesus said , as it was in sodom and gomorah the same will be in the last days. let this be a gist that end is near and prepare our lives. Soon and very soon ,the great babylon will fall. kwezani, tukulani maso anu.

  23. There is no such thing as collective faith. We are not a God fearing nation rather probably most people in this great nation fear God. Don’t mistake the two.

  24. Mu nthawi yakale anzathu akachimwira Mulungu , nazindikira kuti achimwa pambuyo pake amalapa, kuvala ziguduli ndi kudziwaza ma phulusa kusonyeza kugonja kwa Mulungu, Komanso kupempha chikhululuko ndi kut Mulungu awachotsere miliri ndi matembelero pakati pawo…

  25. sitilola khalidwe lonunkha kuononga chikhalidwe cha anthu kumalawi kuno any one who is behind zimenezo asesedwa momvetsa chisoni asayelekeze ngati afuna mtendere bishop take care!!

  26. passing the bill or not, the abominable act won’t stop, somewhere somehow our daughters, mothers, sisters, aunts, etc are involved, just keep on preaching Jesus rather than this.

  27. Love thy neighbor except if he’s gay that is, then punish him. Shame on you! I respect religion, but it has no place in the legal system.

  28. For those who seriously fear God, they cant defend such a bill even an inch but from a satanic angle its very applicable to legalise abortion and same sex marriages. What Malawians demonstrated yesterday is a strong message that they will not side with evil come rain come sunshine. For me the debate on this topic is as good as no debate at all bcoz it wont succeed at all cost, in the end it may just trigger more non-related protests since there are already many sectors that are not ticking hence the need for demos as well.

  29. That Malawi is God fearng country is CORECTLY WRONG!!! Tangolingaliran uchimo uli mdela lanu……mmmmmm nyasiiii!!!! + Yes the bill ‘ll nt pass but take note the behavior ‘ll progress with e maxmum increase. Kwathu kuno ku 25 atskana akukwelana okhaokha, nawo anyamata sakuimva akukhala nyumba zabwno khalidwe lake lomwel. ZAONENI!

  30. ufiti, umbava, uhule, uchidakwa, sanje,kaduka, miseche,kuphana, aneneri onyenga,ziphuphu nde mkumati God fearing country mukunamiza ndani inu????

    • That’s barbaric and backwards. This is 2016 enough with the Stone Age mindset! These are people you’re talking about. Shame on you!

    • Those are not people rather demons, what they do even a dog can not do, I hope u were not born from gays or lesbians, had it been that your parents were gays you could have been where u are supporting such demonic act!

    • Ah that’s very christian of you, I always wonder if religion has brought the evil out of its followers you are the prime example here.

    • God himself destroyed Sodom because of the same sin u are defending here from the punishment, and the punishment for those people was also written in both scriptures, Bible and Qu’ran, death pelnaty is the punishment for these people, so what are u defending here?

    • Futur Ameer Abubakar Mdeza what you need is to be enlightened on what it is to be a decent human being. Killing someone because they are different from you shows you lack empathy. Who cares what your scriptures say! There is a reason Malawi is a secular state, because if it wasn’t we’d be committing human rights violations left and right because of people like you! You’re the perfect example of a fundamental extremist! You have no place in society mate, sorry for the harsh truth!
