Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, PAC’s Chief Executive Director Robert Phiri said the religious body is set to host a national day of prayers in October with the date to be communicated later, where the 2019 tripartite elections top the petition list.

“There are plans to host national prayers, and preparations are underway. One of our agenda is meeting with presidential candidates from all political parties where among other items to be discussed is advocating for peace during the 2019 tripartite polls.”

“When we are done with the preparations we will announce the date and the theme but possibly this will be between October and November,” explained Phiri.

Commenting on the development, Chancellor College based political analyst, Professor Mustafa Hussein, said there is a need for people to be patriotic and pray for the country with sincerity and has advised politicians to fulfill their promises to the people.

“This has come at a good time. Our country is truly in need of serious prayers, I am saying this because all Malawians have seen the political violence we have had, people being beaten up, cars being torched thus a clear indication that we have lost the human sense.”
