Vice President Saulos Chilima has appealed to various stakeholder groups to ensure that the peace that Malawi enjoys persists.
The Vice President was speaking in Lilongwe during the commemoration of the International Peace Day.
Chilima said the peace that Malawi enjoys should not be taken for granted, urging stakeholders and various leaders to desist from doing things that can jeopardise peace.
“These include kunzimva, bodza and chibwana. Chibwana chimalanda komanso chimasokoneza mtendere,” said Chilima.
Quoting Albert Einstein, Chilima said “Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding,” he said; adding.
“Peace is when people are able to resolve their conflicts without violence and can work together to improve the quality of the lives of people.”
The commemoration was also attended by Minister of Civic Education and National Unity Timothy Mtambo, UN Resident coordinator Maria Jose Torres among other dignitaries from government and non state organizations.
