President Peter Mutharika has urged people in the country to live in peace and harmony despite having different religious beliefs so that Malawi should make strides in development.

Mutharika made the remarks in Mangochi on Saturday during the Priesthood Silver Jubilee celebration of Blantyre Archdiocese Bishop Thomas Msusa.

Mutharika wants a peaceful Malawi.

Mutharika told the gathering that differences in religious beliefs must not be a factor of dividing Malawians because it is only through peaceful co-existence that people in the country can move forward as a nation.

“Whether you are a Catholic, a Hindu, a Muslim or a Pentecostal, you need to strive at promoting love, peace and harmony which can take the country to prosperity,” Mutharika said.

The Malawi leader said order brings peace and unity, noting that the life of Archbishop Msusa is a symbol of love and orderliness in times of hopelessness.

“The life of Bishop Msusa should challenge all of us to love God and attempt to bring peace and unity among our friends so that we continue to live in harmony,” he said.

The president then urged Malawians to embrace the three development pillars of patriotism, integrity and hardwork because the country’s destiny lies in the hands of people who are productive.

He appealed to the clergy to pray for the country’s leadership to fulfil its development agenda pointing out that government is taking the necessary steps to bring development through various initiatives.

On accidents, Mutharika said the situation is worrisome and added that he has set up a committee to find out the cause.

“I have instituted a joint committee of the transport and police sectors to establish and find solutions to the rising cases of road accidents, most of which, I believe are a result of overspeeding and drunk driving,” he said.

In his remarks, Bishop Msusa commended government for promoting freedom of worship and he called on religious leaders to dwell much on preaching the word of God instead of wasting time castigating other churches.

Malawi will never be a peaceful country for the fact that you ate the one who is creating more problems in this country.And yet you begging for peace, how do you expect people to follow you?

  9. I totally agree if president, what is our symbol ? No matter what religion we follow lets share love.GOD is love. Our country it’s God loving place.know our beautiful culture. Don’t loosen the line. Lets walk together in love

  10. Very important message. Malawi is not doing well in love sharing with our neighbours because of love of money. Malawi lost Christian virtues because of lust for power and wealth. This why we see people hunting for albino community, people looking for human body parts, theft, embezzlement, witchcraft, corruption, internal political squabbles and fighting……..hence peace lost into prison and graveyard. Surely it is never too late to change and turn around. Each one of us must go deep into our bedrooms to clean our hearts. God will listen. He knows all our secrets and what we do in private. Matt 6:6.

  11. How can peace prevail if pple are not comfortable in terms of economy, freedom of speech, access to better human necessities like water, housing, electricity, better road infrastructure etc.
