PRESS STATEMENT | 25th JANUARY 2019
BUILDING A PEACEFUL NATION FOR A FREE AND FAIR ELECTION
The three Christian mother bodies in this country, namely Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) and Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) and members of Side by Side movement, are concerned with the recent reports of politically motivated violence which is on the increase in this nation especially this time as we move closer towards 21st May, 2019 Tripartite General Elections.
There have been reports of people being harassed for belonging to other political parties or holding different political views. The whole essence of multiparty system of governance, we embraced in 1994 as a country, was the respect and tolerance of different political ideas. This violence must not be nurtured to take root in our nation but quickly and completely eradicated if we are to develop as a nation.
