Catholics mobilised to join electoral reforms demo

148

Catholic Bishops in the country have agreed to support Public Affairs Committee’s (PAC) nationwide demonstrations which will be held on December 13.

The protests are aimed at expressing disappointment over government’s failure to table the Electoral Reforms Bills and its handling of the local government reforms.

Henry Saindi

Saindi: The bishops have endorsed the demonstrations since ECM is part of PAC.

The nationwide demonstrations will be held under the theme “We Demand Transformative Leadership: Now is the Time to Reclaim our Destiny.”

According to a letter signed by Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) secretary general Father Henry Saindi, the bishops have endorsed the demonstrations since ECM is part of PAC.

“During their Extraordinary Meeting held from 23th-39th November, 2O17 at the Catholic Secretariat, Lilongwe, the Bishops endorsed the peaceful marches on the basis that ECM is a member of PAC,” says the letter.

The bishops have since called on catholics to pray for the country’s leadership so that leaders should do what is right and good for the nation.

Catholics have also been encouraged to join the protests in the spirit of citizenship.

The letter says churches across the country should mobilise all catholics to participate in the peaceful march.

  1. There’s nothing more difficult here than only to agree on what the opposition side wants as simple as that If the dpp say no to electeral reform bill that means they are good at playing crooked games during elections time and we won’t agree we will fight until we silence this blackout corruptive good for nothing the dpp organization

  2. Catholics are in the prophecy,no wonder why church and state are now close to each other. Sit down with these books; Daniel and Revelation will the one who is excising all the characteristics of the beast repeatedly mentioned in those books. Nothing strange here!

  3. Am happy that even when the Head of state is being sworn in…He/she holds the Holy Book ( Bible)….symbolizing obedience to the word of God which entirely strengthens justice !..

  14. The Catholic bishops always bring light where the darkness is confusing people and all of you who are not able to understand what these catholics have said you are part of that darkness. Aposonati. Kkkkkk!

  17. I would to know a verse in the bible which states that church elders must be enforce laws of the country wherever possible ,,,,, I have never heard of jehovah’s witness and seventh day adventists in those acts

    • A God fearing leader hates evil and put a good fight for the goodness of his subjects. Those Jehova’s witness and the Seventh day leaders and their followers are all dead people who are still walking on two legs.

    • Just read how influential prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and John (the Baptist) were to their contemporary governments.

    • Sir, We Hv 2 Kingdoms Sacred And Secular. The Sacred One Is There 2 Check The Other. I Doubt If U R Really Interested In Bible Readings Coz U Would Hv Known This B4. Check On Your Computer The Luther`s Reformation U Wil Get This. Next Time Behave As An Intellectual, Wat U Hv Presented Here Is An Error In Reasoning, We Call It Appeal 2 Ignorance. In Short, PAC Is Not Crazy It Knows Wat It Is Doing

    • tikakumana kunseu komweko..tikapisana mu nkanjomo nkufinyana mapwala koopsya….abwere atakhonzekatu oledzebwawo…atha kukomola ma sisteri ndi HIV uko nde ati anke kuti? kulambira mafano ziboliboli asiyira ndani? tiyeni ku nseu,ifenso tri konko…100% ready..lets face off motherfuckerz

  18. Lucifer is the owner of the whole world’s Kingdom ,,,, I wonder why bishops who claim to be holy still associate themselves into these political issues ,,,, are demonstrations biblical?????

    • Very biblical. Read how women demonstrated against king Saul when he was coming from the battle. Again, how people demonstrated against the Roman government when Jesus was entering Jerusalem

    • All this democracy you are enjoying today was faught for by the clergy.even from john chilembwe if you don’t know ask your grands they will tell you the truth.ask american king Martin Luther Jr the pastor taught for the freedom for Americans.can you seee??? Any question?
      Iwe ndi okuba eti??? One of the cashgaters koma siunagwidwe eti? Mfiti yolodza dziko lako lomwe.

    • Ana obadwa mma 2000 umu, what do you know about democracy??…. This same PAC brought down one party system….stupid and deluded DPP followers

    • In Old Testament Mafum Ndi Ma Prophet Amapangira Zinthu Limozi Ndipo Ngati Mfumu Yachita Zosemphana Ndi Mulungu Kapena Anthu, Mulungu Amazuzula / Kulanga Kuzera Mwa Atumiki Ake Ndeno Church Liyenera Kutengapo Pali Pa Zamudziko. Apikene

    • Catholics are the most evil satanic grouping worldover..the papacy is the symbol of evil worshipping..fucking their sisters,boozing,worshipping idols…i hate this deceitfull grouping…bomboklats!! fire burn dem…

    • Zinazi ngati simuzidziwa kulibwino kukhala chete the clergy people have done a commendable job as far as democracy is concerned in Malawi umbuli basi oh ndikukumbutse do u know Archbishop Desmond Tutu? ndi mmodzi mwa azibusa amene anamenyelela ufulu ku south Africa tsono inu ngati mwatopa kagoneni cause u no nothing

    • I should assure you guys

      demonstration is never a sacred way of influencing change

      Don’t take me back in old testament where men of God were engaging in physical fight(wars) ,,, after the death of jesus if you really read bible you will notice that all these were eradicated !!!!!!!

      Are you sure pastors should be flocking in roads and claiming that it’s biblical??????

    • #Zawenee , Do you know what Jesus said to the Pharisees who were trying to block the people that were singing and following Jesus as he was entering Jerusalem? Jerusalem by that time was characterized by demonstrations against the government that was imposed on the Israelites. The Pharisees knew that the crowd that was following Jesus was demonstrating against the government and wanted Jesus to disperse the crowd, but the answer from Jesus diluted their perceived authority over the people.

    • Go and read again my friend these people were singing in praise of son of God not that the governance must change they were not demonstrating for change and mind you jesus didn’t come to be ruler in this evil world…

      State the verse that is explaining what you have highlighted…
      Jesus was not after governance but salvation of you and me

    • Some people ask questions in public like babies crying for milk which is not there? So politicians are associated with Lucifer? Is that what u mean?

    • Before the Don of democracy ‘ they were the freedom fighters, remember the likes of John Chilembwe. These so called #new generation Bishops ‘ i don’t think they even understand the word #peace.

  19. Plz know this is ained at genuinely looking at what us rational nationally. Tbe Bishops have not wronged anybidy. Together with PAC remain the only consious of iur country. The bation says we need it who says not?

Matthews 24: 7 , Countries Will Fight Each Other, Kingdoms Will Attack One Another , There Will Be Famines And Earthquakes Everywhere. 10 , Many Will Give Up Their Faith At That Time ; They Will Betray One Another And Hate One Another. Ndavomeleza Kt Mpingo Wa Roma Simpingo Wotumikira Mulungu Koma Wachinyengo. Inu Ntawi Yanta , Zimezo Zilibe Phindu Koma Udzani Antu Anu Kut Yesu Waneng’enera Kubwera.
