What I have said to my team is that at a point such as this, with 40% adjustment in our currency, it means that Malawians are paying the price.

What is especially important is addressing the question of how religion can be enforced through political means and what can be done to create a political environment that, on the one hand, acknowledges the role of religion in society, while on the other hand does not impose one religion on the populace at the expense of all others.
