Vice-President Saulos Chilima on Sunday donated K1 million to St. George Anglican Parish in Zomba during the church’s fundraising event.
Chilima, who attended mass at the church, advised congregants to commit themselves to God’s work, adding that churches can be self-sustaining through members’ contributions.
Said the Vice-President: “This church depends on its members for development, but this can be fulfilled through Christians who are dedicated and committed to the church through contribution of resources.”
On national issues, Chilima spoke against the killings and abductions of people with albinism.
He said: “Some people still believe one could become rich through this act. For the past three years, none of the convicts or suspects have shown signs of richness because of the act.”
In his message, St. George Anglican Church parish priest Reverend Father Mathews Singano Kachala said the church was humbled to have been visited by a serving Vice-President for the first time.
He said the leadership of each institution, including the nation and the church, should lead people towards God’s will.
The church presented a gift to Chilima in appreciation of his attendance of the event.
