Archbishop Gianfranco Gallone said this on Saturday in Lilongwe.

"Malawians need to be firm in prayer. Let the prayer work amidst this political instability," he said.

He said the church would want peace to return to Malawi.

The head of the Catholic Church in Malawi Thomas Msusa condemned violent protests which have led to loss of lives and property.

He said Malawians can protest peacefully.

Msusa said the church has organised countrywide peace prayers in all its churches on October 19.
