A UK based Malawian evangelist has prophesied that the next government in Malawi will be a Peoples Party led government. Evangelist Prophetess Elizabeth Kalonga made the revelation in an interview with Radio 247 Malawi.
Malawi will be having a parliamentary and presidential election in May this year. “God has shown me that PP will still be in power after the May elections- I have been receiving this message for some time and its time I tell the world what God is saying,” highlighted Evangelist Kalonga.
The woman of God went on to say there is a greater need for Malawians all over to rise up and pray for the future leaders. “What Malawi need are leaders who are not corrupt and who have the welfare of the people at heart, God is ready to raise those leaders but all we have to do is pray”.
She quoted the verse which she says Malawians should base their prayer on which is 2 chronicles 7 v 14 which says “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.
Evangelist prophetess Kalonga is one of the well-known Malawian UK based evangelists and a charity worker.
