Blantyre, 20 September, 2021 / 2:29 pm (ACI Africa).
The President of Malawi has hailed a Catholic Archbishop in the Southern African nation as one exemplifying “servant leadership.”
President Lazarus Chakwera who was speaking at the end of the Eucharistic celebration to mark 25 years since Archbishop Thomas Luke Msusa was ordained a Priest said the Malawian Catholic Church leader has been a source of inspiration.
“Every time I think of leadership I get inspired by the life of Archbishop Msusa; he is a living example of servant leadership which encourages institutions to work with dedication,” President Chakwera has been quoted as saying during the Saturday, September 18 event.
He added in reference to the Archbishop’s decision to have the Holy Mass in his native village of Iba in the Catholic Diocese of Mangochi, “Through your servant leadership, you've shown us the need to respect where one comes from as you could have chosen to celebrate your silver jubilee elsewhere in town and not here, at your home village.”
President Chakwera also praised the Local Ordinary of Blantyre for his humility, which, he said, has made it easier for the Malawian Archbishop to work with everyone.
