Sokari discusses the decision by the Malawian president to pardon a gay couple who were sentence to 14 years in prion: “The decision to pardon rather than allow the Malawian legal process to take it’s own course in the matter raises concerns about the” autonomy and sovereignty” of African states.”

    When the people of Sodom and Gomora were destryedsome of the actions they did before God were sins like these. When Noah preached to the antedeluvians, he was pleading with them to stop sin, but the people did not adhear to the plea, hence, they were all destroyed. We have seen so many calamities happening on our planet, far and beyond, all these are the reflection of God’s anger. Should we suffer just because of some other people who just want to fulfil their desires? No, No, No. Malawi has just started harvesting the fruits of doing good before God.

    Please, Gays and Lesbians, think twice. Others should not perish just because you want to fulfil your desires. God Bless MALAWI!
