Christians in the country have been urged to venture into businesses with a right motive

Christians in the country have been urged to venture into businesses with a right motive so that their deals and gains glorify God…….Pastor and entrepreneur Bruce Clarke from Advance Church in the US said this in an interview with Trans World Radio ahead of the workshop called Growing your Business that will be held tomorrow at Cresta Hotel in Lilongwe……Clarke said that Christian believers need to have enough money to help extend God’s kingdom…. The breakfast workshop which will target Christian entrepreneurs is being hosted by Capital Baptist Church in Lilongwe.



Communities living in Lilongwe have blamed the current court system


Communities living around Ntandire in Lilongwe have blamed the current court system, which they say is lessening the power of Traditional courts, that are designated for chiefs……According to the communities, it is not clear where to go with an issue, as now they say the Traditional courts, are no longer operating……. Senior Chief Chigoneka, told Trans World Radio that there is need for civic education for communities to know where to present a case, to avoid being confused……….Speaking in an interview with Transworld radio, Rose Banda of Mtandire Township in Lilongwe blamed courts for presiding over cases which would otherwise have been judged by local chiefs…..This development she say has reduced the viability of chiefs as people do not seek the attendance of chiefs any more…Banda further said that the mutual understanding that was present between chiefs and their people has vanished. …..On his part Senior chief Chigoneka of the community says people need to be civic educated on what issues are supposed to be presided over by both sides…….However the chief was quick to point out the need for having such a court as it will help in settling some crucial matters …..

Improve the News Reading Standards-Listener

I was on air this morning between 5 and 7 am. Within this block are programmes like Kadzutsa, Word Alive and Joy in the Morning/Chimwemwe Mmawa.

News Reading is demanding

We do have the news at 6 am and 7 am. While handing Joy in the Morning, a Blantyre-based listener sent a text message via the mobile phone and encouraged us to improve on pronunciation of some words especially in English. I was encouraged that here was someone who wanted us to improve on something. Normally most of the comments we get have to do with someone being blessed by this and that programme. And indeed we had many who said so this morning. But I particularly requested for those weak points and I am happy someone pointed out this.

Reading news and nkhani is not easy job. It is demanding. It can be scary sometimes. It just needs a free mind. When one reads the news, you just have to forget anything else and concentrate. Otherwise you can easily mess-up. I personally enjoy it and always wish I could do better. That aside, there is one day in 2005 I will never forget when I read the news of the passing on of one of the big people I was close to at a personal leve through my family. That was a very emotional bulletin for me but I think I managed to handle it well. I had a professional duty to deliver but also I had my pain at the loss of such a person. It was difficult that morning to excuse myself as I was alone at the studio to handle the news (that is one of the challenges of our station).

It was a privilege for me to have a listener Griffiths Nkhwazi join me on air during those two hours. Here is something that I really looked forward to-the involvement of listeners. This week, I hope that many will take the microphone and be live on air if possible. It is their radio week and I think we should practice the Genuine Democracy of the Airwaves. I hope I can see and hear more of their voices on air. Such will and can speak on our behalf to fellow listeners about the prayer, financial, technical, moral and any other support we need. They have heard enough of  and from me, isn’t it?

Programmes Worth Noting on TWR Malawi

Anchors: the relaxed Ali Kalichero always get humbled as they sees stories discussed in Zokhudza AMalawi on Sunday evenings published in some of Malawi’s dailies.

Ali keeps saying, “The fact that we have someone listening and then writing a story based on what we discussed in the programme means we are dealing with real issues affecting Malawians. This is one of the indicators that the programme is doing well-a development which can attract sponsors”

When it first aired in 2006, some Christians did not like it arguing that there was little or nothing biblical in it. But TWR production team maintained that as part of wholistic programming, all Christians needed to be challenged with issues that many not be directly be mentioned in the Bible.

As the name suggests, Zokhudza AMalawi deals with issues affecting Malawians. The programme is a weekly panel discussion often featuring hot topics currently under debate. It airs on Sundays at 6 pm to 7pm and runs in English and Chichewa.



Come Saturday evening at 17:30 and Friday mornings at 11:00, you won’t miss the voice of Victor Kaonga hosting a range of guests in English, Chichewa and on a few occasions in Chitumbuka. This is a 30-minute profile programme letting the listener know more about the featured guest as they share something about the life, work, family, faith, favourites, etc.

It is one of the most inspiring programmes as one is able to identify with some of the guests who include business people, politicians, Leaders of note, Civil Servants, Medical Personnel, Clergy, Opinion Makers, Celebrities, people with special historical associations, etc.

As you drive home after a normal working day Monday-Thursday, TWR Malawi keeps you unwinding your day through music, thoughts, sports updates with Gregory Kachitigu, news, etc. Sunset Mix is just a perfect opportunity to hear about the day’s weather as well as approach the evening with a purpose. It starts running at 16:30 to 17:30 with hosts who take the airwaves on a weekly rotation.

TWR aims at giving you the full menu daily through broadcasts meeting the felt needs of every intended listener.
