As Malawi commemorates 60 years of independence, the recent passing of Vice President Saulos Chilima and other prominent figures has cast a shadow over the country, prompting President Lazarus Chakwera to call for a commemoration centered on prayer and national unity.

This year’s observance departs from Independence Day’s traditional festive events and ceremonies. Instead, Malawians are encouraged to unite in solidarity and engage in spiritual reflection. As Malawians gather in churches, homes, and communities across the country, they will remember the sacrifices made for independence and pray for guidance and strength as they navigate the path forward. This unique commemoration serves as a poignant reminder of the nation’s resilience and the enduring spirit of unity that has carried Malawi through decades of independence.
