LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow) –Malawi nation is suffering from pneumapathology, a spirit disorder, due to its attitude toward authorities and fellow citizen, President Peter Mutharika has diagonised.
Speaking at Zomba Catholic Secondary School ground during the consecration of the Very Reverend Father George Desmond Tambala as Bishop of Zomba Diocese, Mutharika said, although Malawi continues to yearn for transformation, its people resist change every way it comes.
“We are full of cynicism and we have no faith in ourselves as a nation. We want change, but we don’t want to change the way we think. We want to take a positive direction, yet [we] are blinded by negative attitudes. We want to see everything negatively.
“The spiritual health of a country determines the thinking, the attitudes, and the character of a nation. And our collective national character determines whether we develop or whether we regress into petty existence,” said Mutharika.
Mutharika bemoaned Malawians’ negative attitude, exemplified by the spreading of sensitive rumours and lies against authorities and fellow citizens.
President Mutharika fell down outside his Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during a tree-planting ceremony on Friday and State House insiders say the President also fell in the bathroom at the Palace which has affected his ability to govern the nation and sparking rumours of his health.
But Mutharika in apparent reaction the rumours of his health, said Malawi is a country “ in which someone can sit down and create a story.”
“And because most of us don’t have the wisdom to question whatever we read on social media, worsened by our Malawian hunger for rumour, we have made Facebook and Whatsapp our Bible. But I will count on you the Church to teach us the old ways of believing in truth. You are the people to heal the national spirit because the Church is the guardian of morality,” said Mutharika.
