In order to cement administration’s relationship with the church in the country, on Friday, June 2, 2017, the President of the Republic of Malawi, HE Peter Arthur Mutharika interacted with members of the clergy from the Central Region at Kamuzu Palace.
During the meeting, President Mutharika and the clergy shared a common belief that the church and government both serve one people and therefore need to always work together
“I seized the opportunity to appeal to the members of the clergy to help raise awareness on the need for citizens in the country to take part in the on-going National Registration exercise so that Malawians have a valid identification document”, said Mutharika.
The President said that he is sure that with the current cordial relationship that the government share with the religious bodies will help them work together to develop this nation and take it to greater heights.
In Malawi, some Church leaders have been accusing the ruling government of biased decisions on regional developments. The leaders have been saying that the government of Malawi favours one region and leaves the other.
This meeting which was hosted by the President might be a good platform for the clergy to be open to President and reveal the issues which affects Malawian citizens as the country’s economy is in turmoil.
