Arsonists torch Seventh Day Adventist Church in Mzuzu

Communities around Lupaso area in Mzuzu City Monday morning woke up to a rude awakening when a Seventh Day Adventist Church in the area was set ablaze by unknown people.

According to Mzuzu Police Public Relations Officer Martin Bwanali, it was one Austin Nkhoma whose house is close to the Church who noticed the fire at around 4:00 am and alerted other community members.

“The community members mobilised one another and put off the fire before alerting Luwinga Police Station,” Bwanali said.

He said Police are hunting for suspects and appealed to the public to help them with information that can lead to arrest of the culprits.

“Property valued at K395, 000 was lost in the fire and we are doing everything possible to uncover what led to the suspected arson,” he said.

Pastor for the congregation, who only identified himself as Phiri, declined to comment on the development and referred the reporter to his Communications Officer who was not readily available.

Once caught, the suspects will answer the charge of arson, contrary to section 337 of the Penal Code

If Seventh Day Adventist Church is a CULT then why on earth do you believe in JESUS CHRIST? JESUS CHRIST worshipped on seventh-day. We are saved to obey GOD meaning once saved you keep GOD’s commandments. We are not saved to disobey GOD. If argument is that salvation by grace through faith means no more obeying GOD’s commands then are you saying… Read more »

Sad thing is that Seventh Day people don’t eat pork, I feel sorry for them




read the bible very carefully the book of hebrew it says the law took as to sin but christ save us by his grace means we are no more saved by the day which is part of the law but by the bood of jesus we are free.
the day can not save you but the blood of jesus can


@ Wa seven. we will not be saved just because you congregate on Saturday or Sunday. obey God by refraining from sins. Leka chigololo chako chija udzapulumuka.
