Rev Maulana fires another critic Mawaya after Chimesya:  CCAP Blantyre Synod wrangles

Controversial riddled Blantyre Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbytery (CCAP) has summoned Reverend Paul Mawaya to face disciplinary committee on allegations that he is organising the Synod youths to create CCAP Blantyre Synod Youth against Homosexuality in what insiders say its part of witch-hunt by the general secretary the Reverend Alex Maulana on his critics.

Nyasa Times also understand that Mawaya, moderator of Michiru CCAP,  has since been removed from the Blantyre Synod Radio Board with immediate effect without proper reasons and he has since been replaced by Reverend Nasiyaya, a blue eyed boy for Maulana.

Another casualty is Blantyre Synod Youth Director Rev Mulere being accused of organizing the youth to be attacking Synod leadership and is on verge of being transferred as his fate is still undecided.

One of fierce critics of Maulana, Reverend Stanley Chimesya has been dismissed as synod’s prison chaplain with immediate effect and replaced with the Reverend Mathero Msatithe of Nchalo CCAP congregation in Chikwawa.

Chimesya dismissal comes after Nyasa Times reported that he wrote a letter to the general secretary last month detailing a number of the synod’s shortfalls on which he demanded clarifications from Maulana.

But Maulana said the removal is “solely on that basis of years.”

He said: “We are posting him to Nchalo CCAP because the one who has been appointed to take over from him is from there, so we thought of just posting him there.”

Chimesya, who is scheduled to travel to the United States of America (USA) and Canada for more than a month to talk about prison chaplaincy ministry accused his boss of victimising him for his stand against honesty and because of a vehicle, Nissan Serena, which former president Joyce Banda ‘donated’ to him when she was still in power.

He said Maulana decisions are being done “out of jealousy.”

Nyasa Times on Thursday posted a story quoting Chimesya’s letter dated 19th January 2016, in which he queried the synod’s bank overdraft worth millions of kwacha at National Bank of Malawi accumulated in 2015 when it collects millions of kwacha in form of offerings, rentals of its premises and other sources.

Meanwhile,   Rev Mawaya who competed against Maulana during the controversial  Synod’s general assembly last year that saw some Church Moderators led by Very Reverend Professor Silas Ncozana walk out is said to be in bad books with Maulana as he deemed one of the church leaders that are against Maulana poor administration.

In a move as a thank you to his trusted boys who have been campaigning for him and always on his side, Rev Maulana has appointed Rev. Innocent Chikopa as new board chair of Blantyre Synod Health and Development Commission replacing  Reverend Daniel Gunya while Rev Juma is the board chair of Blantyre  synod management representing all reverends replacing Reverend Makuleya James Sande.

Maulana is also sidelining  Blantyre Synod Advisory Council Chair Very reverend Dr Silas Nchoza as he never supported Maulana during  Synod elections and also for openly condemning Maulana’s leadership style in an open letter he wrote.

But Maulana said the shake up in the synod is normal and that: “People will always come up with their own stories.”

Those who are doing that should know that they are the leaders of church who are supposed to advise the government but if they cannot maintain discipline in their church how can advise other people we have to put our house in order tichotse chitsotso chathu poyamba

Exactly. Nowhere is Maulana’s tribe refered to. This shows how we folks from the north discuss issues and not ethnicity on this forum.

Paul! I never thought you would fight these battles when we were growing up as teenagers. What soothes me is the fact that you were a quintessential son! And you deservedly chose to serve Almighty. I vividly recall the day you told me “the African Bible College degree I have just gotten isn’t specialised enough for what I want. So, am going to Chanco to do rigorous theology”. Well as Shakespeare put it “I do profess to be no less than I seem; to serve him fully that put me in trust: to love him that is honest; to converse… Read more »
