Leader of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, has once again appealed for peace and calm to the Malawi nation as the Constitutional Court is about to deliver its verdict on the elections case.
The verdict, which was scheduled for release within 45 days from the final day of the case hearing, is expected to be pronounced towards the end of this week.
He has since appealed to the world to pray for the spirit of peace to reign in Malawi.
The ECG leader was the first to go public in October 2019 to raise an alarm on the need for leaders from religious, political and non-governmental groupings to start preparing Malawians to accept elections court outcome.
His message was well received, acknowledged and acted upon by leaders from various strands of Malawi.
Underlining the importance of his message, the ECG leader took to the pulpit during a Sunday Service in Pretoria to reiterate the call for peace and calm.
He said: “With few days to the ruling, I am calling on the entire nation, everybody listening to this message right now, to take a moment and pray for the nation of Malawi. There is a ruling that will define the political route of Malawi and, already, stakes are high. Let us all pray for peace and calm in Malawi.”
The ECG leader has, again, asked political leaders – both from government and the opposition – to scale up messages of preparing their respective followers to accept the verdict of the court.
He said that whatever direction the ruling may take, even those that will make an appeal, should do so without stirring emotions of the nation.
