The Government has taken note of the statement by the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) Synod of Livingstonia on the current socio-economic and political development processes in Malawi.
The statement, which was issued at the end of the General Administrative Committee meeting held from 21st 24th August 2015 at Phwezi in Rumphi notes with appreciation positive developments that Government has registered since the State President, His Excellency Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika came to power in Malawi in 2014.
It also highlights some gaps that should be addressed by all, including government, traditional and religious institutions, the private sector and civil society.
Government wishes to acknowledge the balanced and sober approach that the Synod has taken to highlight the issues, giving credit where it due and rallying the efforts of all Malawians to address, through concerted efforts, the challenges that the country is currently facing.
Government acknowledges the gaps that the Synod has highlighted, and wishes to assure the people of Malawi that it is doing everything possible to address them.
However, Government wishes to join the Synod in inviting all Malawians, including all political parties, religious institutions, traditional leaders, the private sector and civil society, to work together to support its efforts in this regard.
