The Livingstonia Synod of Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has accused President Peter Mutharika’s administration of promoting divisions in the country which it says is contrary to what the administration preaches.
The observation comes hot on the heels of another scathing criticism by the quasi religious group, the Public Affairs Committee (Pac) which described Mutharika’s leadership as transactional and not transformative as claimed by Mutharika.
Speaking during a funeral ceremony of Traditional Authority Malanda at Mkundi Headquarters in Nkhata bay, Synod General Secretary, Reverend Levi Nyondo accused the current administration of fueling disunity in the country among others through continued administration of the quota system.
Nyondo also trashed Mutharika’s appointment of SymonVuwa Kaunda as Presidential Advisor on Unity and Parliamentary Affairs saying that his role has not yielded any unity.
“We, as Synod of Livingstonia, are surprised with the country’s leadership as far as unity is concerned. We ask ourselves that which unity is Vuwa Kaunda working on with the President.
“We have seen many children from Northern Region being left from the current university selection because of ‘quotasystem’ yet the President talks about unity. We are asking you Vuwa and Nankhumwa to tell the President that Synod of Livingstonia questions about the unity you preach,” said
Nyondo attracting applause from those that gathered at the ceremony.
Quizzed in an interview Kaunda lamented the synod’s remarks observing they came at the wrong place.
He, however, said the synod’s observation will be forwarded to Mutharika. Meanwhile, the body of Traditional Authority Malanda was laid to rest on Monday. He was 77.
He will be remembered for his role in setting up by-laws that forbade early marriages among girls, especially along Lake Malawi.
He is survived by two wives, 12 children and 30 grandchildren.
