Congratulations Rev. Gama. The elections followed all constitutional order of the Synod. There were no issues of raping the constitution as was the case with Livingstonia’s Rev. Nyondo. I believe you are the best G.S in the country’s CCAP SYNODS. The likes of Kachipapas with their blind loyalty for the man that damped them in a very humiliating way, are no match. Nthawi ya Amai Sosten Gwengwe rightly cautioned Nkhoma Synod about Chakwera by reminding them how he deserted the church after sending him to College in South Africa in total display of his opportunism.

Congratulations Reverends Mbolembole and Billy Gama. Congratulations to the entire executive. Blantyre Synod, you make us proud. You are anointed to serve God. How I wish Livingstonia Synod borrowed a leaf from Blantyre. Here in Livingstonia, we are being spearheaded by satanists and witches. Rev Levi Jombole Nyondo, a scrap and a heap of filth. Lord Have mercy on Livingstonia Synod. Congratulations Blantyre Synod

Am wishing you all the best but please abolish what is called church bank which is taking place in some churhes under your watch in which if a member of the church borrows money from the group, he/she is asked to back the borrowed money with interests. In our bibles there about 100 verses which are against charging of interests to our fellow brothers and sisters. For example, (1) Proverbs 28:8. Whoever multiplies his wealth by interest gathers it for him who generous to the poor. (2) Deuteronomy 23:19-20. You shall not charge interest on loans to your brother, interests… Read more »

Now DPP rests assured that Blantyre CCAP Synod is fully captured. When religious leaders are politically absorbed they cant lead followers to salvation but to earthly gratification. Sad for the once mighty Synod!!!. For 3 -5 years spiritual darkness will engulf the Synod. The few candles of righteousness have been have been out .

Aneneri onyenga okhaokha awa. Most of them bought by DPP. The outgoing GS has expressed concern over racism. They are divided themselves instead being role models in uniting the country.
