Rev Timothy Nyasulu: CCAP conflicts worrying

Moderator of the General Assembly, Reverend Dr Timothy Nyasulu, has said the leadership in the three Synods handle misunderstandings.

He is quoted in the Daily Times commenting on divisions rocking Kanengo CCAP where the congregation have broken ranks with Livingstonia Synod in protest against Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango’s suspension.

Rev Nyasulo told the paper: “The wrangles are not only haunting Livingstonia Synod but are also prevalent in Nkhoma and Blantyre Synods. In Nkhoma Synod, we hear some ministers are not happy with the allegations of the missing K60 million at the secretariate; while in Blantyre Synod, we hear politics amongst the ministers is taking centre stage. What is wrong with our churches?”

He said the CCAP conflicts are putting the church members to “shame”.

According to the report, Nyasulu said a recent meeting in Lilongwe with the Assembly General Secretary revealed that political influence had impact on the leadership of the Synods and that the quality of leadership at the Synods was also a concern

He stressed that the General Assembly is “ ashamed” with the conflicts and fear that “such conflicts can mislead dedicated church members.”

Shame to our so called today’s Reverands, cause though their hearts wish to be in line with God and do God’s work they are unable because they love money than loving GOD. They know well what they supposed to do but their hearts mwadzadza chinyengo. shame shame.

When Rev Mhango was at Chiwavi members did not want him to leave,when transfered to Katawa the members there did not want him to leave for Embangweni.At Embangweni, they rejected him transfered to Ekwendeni….At Kanengo the same. It means, according to my opinion, either the people associated with him trust him or he has the problem.It is up to him(Rev Mhango) to solve this problem.I suggest forming his own church and people will follow him as every leader has a following or conform to what the Synod follows when transferring its pastors.Otherwise we r to blame either the synod or… Read more »
Rev. Nyusulu if you say that the synods are a shame then you are also because you are the people to solve such problems in the synods. You were there as a pastor for such problems. The issue of Kanengo CCAP the Rev. knows very well what he is doing to confuse innocent christians, I strongly believe that there is no secret on the eyes of God. The foundation of church from the background of confusing people will have its reward some day here on earth or in heaven. My fell Christian do not be shall minded, think beyond the… Read more »

The love of money is the root of all evil. We should be careful they way we look at this amenity that makes things move in our earthly life. It should help prepare us as we await our journey to heaven. The things that have happened between our two synods; Nkhoma and Livingstonia is a typical example of the devils tricks to defeat believers. All was well and there was harmony in our church but following events that have overtaken the partakers – our very reverends baffles us all. Let us PRAY ceaselesly to ask GOD to renew us and… Read more »
The truth is that leadership of the church in the name of Reverands has brought all this misery happening in all our Synods and a few misguided church elders like the ones at Kanengo CCAP who are busy preaching confusion on Madziko radio another church radio station repeating the same lies every week, please enough and don’t give them another forum or else you will mislead people. Rev Mhango humble yourself. Anzanu ku BT Synod atatsusa the roman catholic pastoral letter the Bt Synod chopped off thier leadership positions and sent them to other churches they humbled themselves and left.… Read more »

General Synod has a problem: why are they not being proactive? Look at the Livingstonia/Nkhoma Synods border wrangle- all reasoning people noted that there is a problem at the General Synod – tribalism rather than Chritianity triumphed. Bvuto ndiloti enanu ubusa munalowa chifukwa cha kubvuta kwa ntchito- it was not a calling.
