Rev Mhango’s Kanengo CCAP pray under heavy police guard

Congregation at Livingstonia synod breakaway church, Kanengo CCAP on Sunday prayed under heavy police guard following a High Court ruling that vested the church building land in the hands of the Livingstonia synod trustees.

Rev Mhango: Renegade church

The presence of the armed police in camouflage battle gear however did not deter the congregation praising and singing led by Livingstonia synod rebel cleric Chimwemwe Mhango.

Kanengo CCAP session clerk Hebron Banda said the church was surprised with the presence of police since Thursday.

“We are children of God who love peace. Since Thursday, we are surprised to see these armed men, what is happening? Why are they here? Who is sending them?” asked Banda rhetorically.

He said the congregation held the prayer services peacefully.

“Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango conducted the prayers beautifully, very well indeed, we were very jovial, the Holy Spirit came down and was with us,” he said.

He asked the congregation to be calm even after losing the High Court case to Livingstonia synod and the heavy presence of police.

Lawyer for the congregation Zeros Matumba said he would be appealing against the High Court ruling that went in favour of Livingstonia synod, describing it as lacking.

“The congregation is not happy, we need clarification through the appeal,” said Matumba.

He said he was working to obtain a stay against the High Court ruling that ordered all bank accounts and the Kanengo CCAP land be surrendered to Livingstonia synod.

The wrangle between Livingstonia synod and Kanengo CCAP started after Mhango was transferred to Euthini CCAP, a transfer Mhango rejected and the synod subsequently fired him from the Livingstonia church of the CCAP for insubordination.

The presence of Livingstonia synod in Nkhoma CCAP also caused a storm as there is s written memorandum of understanding of all the CCAP synods including the Blantyre synod not to encroach on each other’s territory but money opportunities in the capital city are tempting the men of God.

    If you have no idea what the police are there for, then you are a strange being! Are you sure, you can pretend that all is well n have the ball to wonder what the police are there for? Or you think that if conflict erupts, God will descent or come forth to protect you? Is this how you think Gods works? You think that those people who died after being hit by a lightning while in a church praying, were praying to some other god? If people can die while praying, what more with someone running away with a bank account?
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Are you guys sure that the rat-cockroach, cat-rat and cat-dog bank account chases have anything to do with salvation or the name of God? Not many have told you this but truth is, God is not happy with what all of you are doing. Into disrepute, you are putting His name with such ‘divine’ comedy of ungodly manners.

    If not careful, many may lose more than you think. Look around! You will see that besides ethnicity, the most brutal wars, the most persistent n never-ending conflicts on this planet are fought in the name of religion either protecting a “sacred” place or thing or wanting to claim or destroy a “sacred” thing. Religious conviction is one of the most powerful garments which, if worn; one knows nor fears not even death.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    You are lost guys! Rediscover yourselves n reconcile with God. Otherwise, you are slowly becoming less of God’s and more of something else. And its scary.

  22. bunyah says:

    the appeal will yield nothing, just leave the premises amicably, they belong to livingstonia synod

  23. Khwethemu says:

    Osamakapemphera ku Synod kwanu bwanji? Kukonda ndalama. Mtundu wovuta uwu ngati wa a lomwe. No difference at all.

  24. Bristone Mabichi says:

    An appeal is fine, go ahead my lordship, but I hope you know the genesis of it all. Before Rev. Mhango went there, Livingstonia Synod had already established itself as having that congregation. The Rev. Mhango was sent or rather authorized by the Synod to be there. Everything being conducted there is under the Synod. Those who opt not to follow the Synod have all the right to quit and leave the property under those who are subjective to the Synod. Nothing new here, these have happened even in Pentecostal churches and the grieved party simply walks out to some other church or start yet another. It did not even involve the courts. It is a straight forward issue: Rev. Mhango, with due respect, find another place with your flock. Malo ayo nga Sinodi ya Livingstona. FUMANIPO waka chisisi

  28. Benzma says:

    This man is an opportunist. He is confusing Some Christians fo his personal gains. If he died today what will happen to these pipo. If he is realy a man, Why can’t he find a place and start his own church since he already has a Ministry? Shame on him Mtumbuka wosayamika.

  29. Jim says:

    When people rebelled in Blantyre synod they went and formed Presebeterian Church of Malawi and built another church no one claimed any church building where ever they were praying to me these were true and peaceful christians God bless PCM

No matter panali ma issues ena regarding your transfer, inu mukanangopita to save God and prove your critics wrong. Apatu mwazisankhila ulemelero wapa dziko

  36. Nakhwiri says:

    Where did they pray? In the same church or somewhere else?

  37. Nthamenye says:

    The Synods in Malawi have been getting away with alot. I urge the Kanengo CCAP to appeal and press on without surrender. Any surrender will mean that these Synods will continue to act with impunity and outside the doctrines that govern christianity.

    its time CCAP membership realised that salvation does recognise a particular denomination or name of the Church. Salvation is about oneself and his/her relationship with God. Churches are just vehicles. And if vehicles loose breaks or are driven by unruly drivers, the passenger has a choice to either continue or disband from this vehicle.

    Its time we started accepting that we cannot all have the same views. Let us respect those who think diffrently from us.

    i think u Chimwemwe mhango u are aprobrem why cant u vacate there and find ur own place of worship

  50. Chibalo says:

    Guys leave the man of God alone.He has already stayed in the village and do you think at this stage after his children have tested good life in town, they go to better shops and schools,then they must pack up and stay in the Nthengere again?Does the church not have other Pastors who can go there? Are we honest to say the calling matters when we know that even here the work of God is far from done and then we send a good preacher and a muscian away to the village where there is no Nyasatimes?By the way, even you who is reading this piece you are in town and you want him and his wife to suffer in the village in the name of a calling when other Reverents in the same congregation change from city to city?Musiyeni munthu alalikire bwino bwino popanda chilema.

    Kkkk money opportunities tempting men of God. No comment apa

  53. English Guru says:

    Nkhoma Synod should just confiscate this church for encroaching in its territory by Livingstonia Synod and then the whole CCAP should do away with the rule that clerics (Reverends) from other synods cannot minister in another. Whatever the reason, but that is regionalism being practised
    in the church.

  54. Ambwiye says:

    Mwachoka kwanu kumpotoko kumazakangana kuno ku Lilongwe? Satanic yanuyo osamachitira ku mpoto kwanuko bwanji? Kulimbirana chakhumi cha ambwenumbwenu amu 25? Namwe wanyithu wa ku 25, osangolowa mpingo wina bwanji? Mukufuna muzivabe mau mchitumbuka kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  73. Gulukunyinda says:

    Where will this lead you Chimwemwe Mhango? You are devil sent disguising yourself as pastor. If you have that zeal, you will honourably bow out of the synod’s premises. U did same thing at Embangweni, Zolozolo CCAP confusing people each time you have a transfer. What Holy Spirit descended on the congregants? Hahaha I laugh even the devil comes as an angel just to deceive people!!! Beware!

  74. chatonda says:

    One wonders, what is wrong with people from the North? When it comes to Federalism, you were in the fore front and it has flopped. When it comes to University selection, you always complain of being robbed your opportunity, when it comes to Church issues, you were the one who encroached into Nkhoma Synod’s land illegally and now the infighting amongst yourselves and the court has ruled with a clear direction, you continue to make noise in this country, Why?? and What exactly do you want??? Nkhoma and Blantyre Synods are very peaceful and quiet. Cant you learn something from them for once? Both Central and Southern Regions are very quiet regarding fereralism, why inu nokha nokha kuvutitsa mdziko muon? Why/ When it comes to politics in the PP , IT IS always Nzomera Ngwira and Kachali making noise in the region and in Parl;iament, What is wrong with you people???
    You are a disgrace to the nation and you better reflect and change. Malawi does not beong to the North only but to all if us. People will be tired one day as these issues will culminate into violence one day because you claim to be ill treated while it is in your mind only.
    If anything happens in Malawi, it is because of people from the north who are never satisfied with the little the country is able to provide to all of us. That is a bad example to the nation. Malawi is poor and needs all of us to develop it. Read acrefuly and reflect on your conduct in this country. Shame on you all from the north from church to politics.

  75. tawonga says:

    Man of God Chimwemwe Mhango, When God calls you, you move out and start afresh. Not necessary to cling to other peoples property. You have to be a source of peace and blessing than of confusion and hatred. If God is on your side, he will give you new property. Or submit yourself to the authority of Livingstonia CCAP Synod rather than be a source of rebellion. Why are you leading your followers into rebellion? Remember the principle of sowing and reaping-whatever a person sows, that shall that person. If you sow rebellion, you will reap rebellion from your church sooner than later.

  76. ZZ Junior says:

    Atumbuka firstly you rise up against Chewas thinking you have a solution to all your problems. when left alone, you rise up against each other. Tumbuk against Tumbuka and then you preach federalism..Koma kumeneko.

  77. Yes, continus praying in eneast to God he will answer soon.the multitude of people who followed Jesus were mostly after the free fish&bread, not his teachings…Amen !!

  78. Yes,continue praying and loving God and his people, he will answer through thd holy spirit soon.
    Remember the people who flovked to Jesus were after the fish&bred free,not his Cts or word…amen!

  79. Boyi says:

    Just continue praying. The Lord will answer
