CCAP Blantyre Synod Rev in incest scandal: Fathers child with own daughter

Reverend Chimesya Phiri is not new to sexual controversy that threatens his vocation. The Prison Chaplain for Blantyre Synod of the CCAP, has now broken the moral and spiritual code after impregnation of his own teen daughter who has since given birth, Nyasa Times understands.

Revv Chimesya: Incest scandal

Revv Chimesya: Incest scandal

The daughter, Eliza, fell pregnant last year while she was a student at Michiru Private Schools and was immediately dispatched to their home village.

The reverend allgedly asked his daughter to implicate a garden boy who was also immediately fired as a cover up despite his repeated claim of innocence.

The issue, which has been a secret for months, finally floated to the surface after the girl broke the news to her friends who came to visit her at the family’s home at the HHI Synod headquarters in Blantyre.

“She must have been tired and angry at carrying the shame on behalf of his father that is why she let the cat out of the bag,” said Nyasa Times source, a resident at the HHI Mission.

He added: “Its no longer a secret. Almost every resident at HHI knows about the story. The daughter has been telling friends about it. It’s a shame to the church and indeed the kingdom of God.”

This scandal is not the first for the embattled cleric to be involved in.

In 2008 the Weekend Nation reported that, while serving at Mpilipili Church in Mangochi, Chimesya employed a 12-year old girl to run house chores while attending school. But months later he was implicated in her pregnancy and was transferred from Mpilipili to Msoni Church in Chiradzulu by the Synod.

Chimesya Phiri denied any wrong doing and told the paper then: “I know this is a fight by some pastors against me because our synod is already divided. But I am ready even to appear in court and defend myself.” .

He admitted having employed the girl, saying he did so to rescue her from an early marriage which the parents had arranged with some man, a claim the parents denied.

The issue died a natural death as police and synod through then general secretary Rev. McDonald Kadawati covered up the story thus failing to help the girl’s family in soliciting justice and discipline.

Meanwhile, the synod is yet to meet and discuss the issue which has now caught the attention of thousands of church members. It is believed that even the Malawi Prison Services want Chimesya out as its chaplain.

Ironically, Chimesya’s moral decadence comes at a time when he was summoned by the synod after he spoke to the media attacking government.

Chimesya denies the story and blames his detractors at the synod for “cooking” it up to turnish his image and deal with him.

Blantyre Synod moderator said if indeed there was evidence on the matter, the Rev. Chimesya Phiri would have to appear before several courts of the Church that include staffing and nomination committee and the General Administration Committee which may recommend his dismissal.

  43. GRM says:

    I am very worried with the attitude of Chimesya as reported in Newspapers. Does he care about respecting authority? I am not familiar with the rules of this Mpingo. But i do not see how a car donated to man of God remain his and not of God? I am catholic and if catholics donated a vehicle to a hardworking priest that vehicle belongs to the parish akamachoka amaisiya. How can a pastor own property?Let alone how can he claim ownership of a car donated to him by doing God’s work for God people? Please educate me. Otherwise it is a scandal to fight for God’s property. More scandalous than this current fake story.

  44. Bratusha says:

    Kaya ndi zoona olo ayi, nkhawa yanga ili pa anthu amene amaika chikhulupiriro chawo chonse pa the so called men of God. Koma zonsezi zimadza chifukwa a khristu ambiri sawerenga ndi kumvetsa mawu.

  45. WAMUMPESA says:

    Many so called men of God are in fact wolves in sheep skin.They are at the centre of destroying other peoples marriages and relationships.My warning to my fellow christians is always keep an eye over your shoulders whenever a Pastor or Bishop visits your home.Now as for the innocient girl who has been impregnated by this stupid Pastor, i ask Patricia Kaliati to intervene in this matter so that the man gets a stiff penalty.This will serve as a lesson to other ungodly clergy.

    I cant judge him God will but if it is true, the church needs to take strong disciplinary measures on this pastor.

  50. ikamuna yamemena says:

    I have known this man of God and can say this is not true. There are elections at the synod people withing the church are doing whatever they can to paint each other the darkest paint that fails them to win. Not all what is written here is true. Who did the medical test to prove he did this? Please Blantyre synod behave yourselves. Don’t destroy each other because of positions.

    I will never trust this man

  67. Me says:

    How many times are you, journalists going to apologise for cooked up stories? Report the reality and not what some people pay you to report. By the look of things, this story is not true; people are trying by every means to tarnish other peoples image just for the sake of the synod’s elections.

    Very shameful we don’t need such people in high offices

  71. Mbuyankhoma says:

    The man of God, why are you so wicked to that extent? This is why Jesus had wished, if you were like him: No wife, no child no wealthy, inorder to save God well. What you have done is a disgrace. You lack charisma though………. Going to church is one thing, and to be Godly is another, really.

    Carrying my beloved CCAP

  77. point Blank says:

    Very sad story and very shameful. At least its a CCAP pastor not an Adventist Pastor coz this wall would have been full of Insults by now. This should act a light to you SDA pastor since you’re salt of this world and people expect you to be exemplary. As for our pastor pray to God to forgive you for you to enter the kingdom of God. As for the consequences, they will come. What will benefit you to have everything on earth and loose the kingdom of God. We are all sinners and Jesus died for all of us including you pastor.

    Chimesya is a Northerner, plz dismiss wt immediate effect! He a shameful character to our disciplined Synod. He wanted to fight the DPP government in the name of Prison & Synod, now let him dance to the tune!

  81. Josephy says:

    Munthu otsogolera nkhosa za mulungu amayenera khale chitsanzo kwa anthu onse koma izi ndie ziti? Wotchout christians satan also with you within the church

  82. Honest Man says:

    MAN OF GOD ??? My Ass !!!

  83. John K Black says:

    It is clear that these days the Church does not have any morals. Look how the CCAP in Blantyre is in a power/money struggle, and the same goes for the Muslim Association of Malawi. These people are mortals, and behave just as good or bad as any other. Only: they don’t pay tax (for unknown reason!) The Church has no moral highground any more.

  86. Dickson says:

    Rev, Chimesya need an urgent spiritual Devine.
    Let’s help to pray for the problem he has is beyond his capacity and unfortunately he can’t see that the devil is working withing him so that he can completely die spiritually..
    The sex scandal and the fighting he is in with him Boss ( The General Secretary ) all these signifies the power of the devil in him.
