Mining Minister Calls for Peace and Love Among Students

Minister of Mining Monica Chang’anamuno has argued  all students in the country to preach and demonstrate peace and love to one another emphasising that this will help Malawi to improve in the education sector.

Chang’anamuno was speaking on Friday at Mbinzi Secondary School in Lilongwe during the re-launch of World Day of Prayers in Secondary and Primary Schools in Malawi by the Malawi Council of Churches (MCC)an event which attracted participants from 30 public secondary schools from Lilongwe.

“The re-launch of World Day of Prayer is important because as Malawi, we are having Malawi 2063 vision and for us to achieve this we need peace and for that to come we need love, therefore the theme is in line with this as it talks about bearing love with one another”. She said.

Chang`anamuno said the youths need to grasp peace and love as a country that doesn’t have peace can never fulfill its vision therefore, adding it is important to go to schools and let students know that they need to practice peace and love while they are young.

Malawi stopped observing the day in primary and secondary schools because of the COVID 19 pandemic.

General Secretary for Malawi Council of Churches, Reveland Alemekezeke Phiri, said that the future for this country is in the hands of the younger generation therefore re-launching the World Day of Prayers in schools is a right step forward as the youths are the ones to implement vision 2063.

“As MCC, we have sensitised other churches that wherever there is a school, members should ensure that this day is maintained and prayers should continue, “He said.

He also advised student in schools to participate in world day of prayer and that peace, love and prayer should be part of their everyday life’s.

In her remarks, Phalace Samuel a student at Mbinzi Secondary school expressed gratitude for the re-launch of this day saying it helps to bring unity and love between students, teachers and Malawi as a nation.

She also pleaded other students to stop practicing vandalism in schools as this disturbs education learning.

Women’s World Day of Prayer is an annual event held on the first Friday of March. This year, the day was held under the theme “I beg you…Bear with one another in love”
