According to Mwanamvekha, the prayers that President Peter Mutharika will grace will be part of Independence Day celebrations in the country.

Mwanamvekha who is also the chairperson of this year’s Independence Day celebrations said the prayers are aimed at thanking God for bumper harvest this year.

“The theme of this year’s commemoration is thanking God for a season of plenty. We want to celebrate the good rains and bumper harvest that Malawi has experienced in 2016/17 faming season. Malawi is one of the blessed nations as some countries have not done well,” he said.

Malawi’s 53rd Independence Day celebrations will be preceded by mini celebrations in major cities of the country.

According to Mwanamvekha, the mini celebrations will be held on July 5 before the main event in Lilongwe.

“We would like people in the Southern, Northern and Eastern regions to join us in marking our 53rd Independence Day celebration. This is why we have organised these events in the cities,” Mwanamvekha said.

The other event to celebrate the day is a football match that will take place between Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers at Bingu National Stadium.

Malawi attained independence from Britain on 6th July, 1964 and became a republic on 6th July, 1966 with Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda becoming the first president of the country.

I hope as a nation, not as an individual, the denominations to take part do exist and recognized as such in the country. Being a national issue lets not discriminate one another based on religion

    1. You are not a farmer bro that’s why you are too blind to see!
      Why the use of thanksgiving to God for the good rains when farmers are being robbed the product of the same rains?

  8. …instead of praying, this day would better be served planning about irrigation. When the rains don’t come, that’s what we can fall back on…prayers, not so much.

    1. I thought they are to thank God for the rains of whom even the water for irrigation can not be found if He so willed.
      Sir you should be thankful

    2. Thomas Mumbo brilliant point but you’ll see that when it comes to talk about God the irrational takes over and there cannot be opposing views.

    1. Yeey you stupid….you were fed by whites, wt a white god,,we as Fricans new God before they even came to Africa,,,we knew our God of ancestors, I will never praise a white god…

    2. Yeeey you stupid, God created itself in its own image,,, the first person on earth was a black person, the black race originated in Bangui, CAR… the first thing on earth was darkness… the Sun is black.. the nutritious soil is black…our skin is black, so who we are?

    3. Kkkkkk,lots of people to hero by ignorant,but our holy God is good,,he ll make a way to those who doesent no him to know him,,God help you my friend mbiyo

    4. God is him?, he is a man?…..dont underestimate our God…..your indoctrination method of God is not correct my friend….go back black history… Who did black people pray to before slavery and collonisation?
