Anglican, Nkhoma Synod join PAC demo

155

The CCAP Nkhoma Synod and the Anglican Church in Malawi have urged their members to join the December 13 nationwide demonstrations organised by the Public Affairs Committee (PAC).

Malawi Council of Churches (MCC), a mother body made up of 25 member churches and 20 Para-church organisations spread across Malawi, also asked churches to participate in the protests.

PAC wants Parliament to table and pass reforms bills

The Nkhoma Synod leadership said in a statement that as a member of PAC and MCC it is totally in solidarity with the PAC’s intended peaceful march to push for the tabling, debate and passing of the proposed Electoral Reform Bill.

“To this end, the Synod, is advising all Church Ministers and Heads of Synod institutions to facilitate the participation of their members and institutions by passing on the accessed communication from the Synod Secretariat.

“It is the wish of the General Secretary that, all the city congregations and Heads of institutions should have the communication stipulating the logistics handy by Friday, 8th December, 2017,” says the statement by Nkhoma Synod Deputy General Secretary Rev Brian Kamwendo.

The Anglican Diocese of Northern Malawi on Saturday asked all its members to participate in the forthcoming peaceful march organized by PAC.

MCC on Sunday called on all its members in faithful spirit to join the peaceful marches as committed and spirited citizens of Malawi.

In a letter signed by chairperson Bishop Fanuel Magangani, MCC said all Malawians of goodwill should join the council in prayers to turn the nation onto a discourse that Malawians want in order to achieve Malawi that is needed by anybody.

“Malawi Council of Churches shall remain in solidarity with PAC And other likelihood bodies in pursuance of the tabling, debating and passing of the electoral and local government reforms bill so that the trust Malawians have lost in the electoral process  can be restored for the benefit of all Malawians and our country,” said the statement.

PAC thought of organising the march after efforts for the electoral reforms bills to be taken to Parliament and be passed during the November Parliament sitting yielded nothing.

According to PAC, the peaceful marches will start from community centre ground to city assembly offices in Lilongwe, whereas in Blantyre the march will start from Clock tower to civic offices.

In Mzuzu people will walk from Katoto secondary school ground to civic offices while in Zomba they will march from Zomba community ground to Mponda Freedom Park.

  1. Thanks to Dr.momoh who saved and cured me from hepatitis B.. virus.with his herb medicine you can also reached him for similar issue..or you can add him up on WhatsApp +2349068579672

  2. Demostrations do not bring change in malawi,,,,,,,the problem is ,you find all the big fish behind this sh*** are doin it for their personal benefits not for the nation as a whole. like what hapened on 2Oth july, poor malawians who were not even sure bout what was happening were the ones shot dead,,,,,the organisers shut tha f** up coz they got what they wanted. Nothing changed after the Demos…..,offcoz this country is a mess ryt now but aint gon be part of the Demoz

  3. Not surprised at all, PAC is behaving strange these days. What if the bill is rejected at Parliament will they mobilize the masses again?? Nkhoma synod has been pro-MCP ever since, so their involvement was inevitable

  4. Mmalo moti muwauze anthu apite kukapemphera ku church, Ku nsewu tikataniko? zopusa basi. Baibulo limanena kuti tizikhulupilira Mulungu nthawi ya mavuto. Inu mukuwerenga chani? Salvation is by faith alone and not works according to Paul.

  5. Am 100% agree with PAC and all church leaders coz there is relationship betwn church and politics. Some of these who are practicing politics r also member of a church. God is in control of all the earth and also who appoints rulers.Church & Politics r interrelated coz both of them deal with the same people

  6. I agree with other coments and disagree with some, follow the history hw ur country get to change eg pastoral letter followed the birth of multiparty etc may be thus why our our is full of evil im our leaders rule us with the mindset of politics is adirty game is very funny that the country want to be lead by dity people then we should stop crying tikutukwanilanji mpingo yialowererapo, amalawi azanga let us change our mind set

    • Participation in these demos is a personal choice….you stay home and let those who want to participate do without anyone giving them any names.

    • You know, some of those talking nonses are well educated people. They know the truth but bcoz they have been bribed by the government to speak negatively on the issue, we all know what this group did, it spoke strongly against one party rule. Why not today? They must let them speak for the people, the voiceless and those oppressed.

  22. Kodi wa seventhday ndye olungama kukhala chete nthawi zina ndikupusa koononga zinthu anthu omwe amavota amachokela ma church ndye anthu Ena musapezelepo mwai onyoza mipingo yomwe mumadana naye chifukwa imatsatidwa ndi anthu ochuluka mkumaipitsa mkumaphatikiza ndi satan Ai kulakwitsa

  23. PAC Voice of voiceless Malawian who can not understand the situation. We are twisted left and right. God guide us which is which money has made people forget you lord have mercy to our beloved Malawi.

  24. I feel sorry for those who say, churches have started politics…..if I may ask,how do u understand the word politics? Go deeper into your scriptures and you would find out that churches have been in politics before and even after Jesus. When God chooses a ruler to rule the country, can you say its spiritual or politics? Think outside the box please before commenting. Pastors are leaders for the churches, and presidents are leaders for citizens but both presidents and pastors they do deal with human beings.

    • ndikawona papa aķufula kulamulila paďziko lonse ĺapansi ……chifukwa çhokuti amawazondosa mpansi mawu amubuku lopatulika ngati mene ukupangila iwemu ….exp usazipangile iwe wekha fano losema , iwe ukuchitsema kumachiģwadilañso,kulidziwa kwambili bible ndikuyamba ķuliwonjemzela mzelu zina

    • For your information, am not a catholic member, its just a matter of understanding things. Which part of my comment are you failing to understand?

    • @Palian, you talk facts! Those who deem to be failing to understand you are Dunderhead Cadets of DPP and they do that deliberately! You will be surprised that Dunderhead Cadets of DPP post things which are full of lies and no facts at all and it is so shameful! Why do they Fear 50+1? Some say it is expensive yet the Donors push for 50+1…these Donors fund elections every time. Is funding for elections coming from DPP Cadets or DPP government? Fundo less!! They also castigate PAC badly and yet it is PAC which brought real democracy in Malawi. Pathetic Poor Cadets of DPP. They don’t love their country through UMBULI !!

    • I really like your facts , ndale ndi mpingo zimayendela limodzi. Olo mu tchalitchi mulinso ndale ,that’s why you also vote and campaign for a post like tressure or secretary.
