Bishops Bvumbwe, Malasa refuse to comment on mother bodies stand backing PAC

A critic of Public Affairs Committee (PAC) former vice-chairperson Bishop Joseph Bvumbwe of Evangelical Church has refused to comment on a stand by the quasi-religious organisation’s mother bodies to back the body following reports of cracks among the member organisations.

Bishop Joseph Bvumbwe: Critic of PAC

There have been reports that a splinter group of Bvube,  Bisop Brightson Malasa of the Anglivan Church’s Upper Shire Diocese and Reverend Alex Maulana, general secretary of the CCAP Blantyre Synod was being established

The three pro-government faith leaders argue that the quasi-religious body has departed from its initial values.

But the mother bodies  to which the three belonghave come out to defend the religious institution.

The bodies have also refuted allegations that some of them have withdrawn their membership from the institution because it has departed from its original mandate.

The five are Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM), Malawi Council of Churches (MCC), Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) and Quadria Muslim Association of Malawi (QMAM).

The bodies said in a statement, PAC has only five mother bodies and not eight as purported by some quarters prior to the 5+1 All-Inclusive Stakeholders Conference held on June 7 and 8 this year.

“We further wish to point out that mother bodies have never been excluded in PAC decision-making because they are constitutionally involved at PAC governance level as far as decision-making process is concerned,” reads the statement signed by all chairpersons and general secretaries of the five mother bodies.

The mother bodies quashed criticism, saying all decisions taken by the organisation have their endorsement through the board of trustees and general secretaries.

Bvumbe  could not immediately comment on the position taken by the mother bodies.

“I can not talk about the statement which I have not seen,” he said.

And Bishop Malasa also refused to comment.

“Let me comment later when I see the statement,” said Malasa.

Maulana could not be reached to comment on his position.

Change of times. Good that my Catholic Bishops went to school and they don’t want to

be used anyhow. They stand by the truth

Ma Bishop wa PAC akuizembayi nkumaiputsitsa adzaifuna. Ndale zimasintha Zinthu zimasintha kwa ena temporarily kwa ena permanently. Only God knows knows the inner motives of these men of God. And since it is in public at the appropriate time chosen by God He will also answer in public. But for now we can not know for sure but time will come only Him knows.

Don’t worry about Bvumbe and colleagues. They are part to the problems and you want to turn them into part of solution. Never and never because they are benefiting out of Malawians’ sufferings.
