Catholic Church suspends socialite priest

The Catholic Diocese of Mzuzu has suspended its socialite priest who was pictured enjoying in Lake Malawi with a lady member of his congregation.

Mzuzu diocese bishop John Ryan says in a letter to all communities and institutions in the diocese that the diocese has suspended Father Charles Ndhlovu.

“It is with deep sadness and regret that I write to inform you that Fr. Charles Ndhlovu is now suspended from all priestly ministry and all functions related to it,” says Ryan.

He says the suspension includes the clause that he is not to reside in any diocesan house or facility.

“It is an indefinite suspension until such time I write again with further information,” says Ryan.

Ndhlovu recently headlined social media platforms with pictures of him and a woman some people say was one of his congregation, seemingly enjoying in Lake Malawi.

Why suspended the father for conducting baptism as prescribed by the scribes? This was baptism in the lake, part of his work.

Sorry but the picture does not mean much in my view. Just like anyone else kukasamba kunyanja with a friend can happen to anyone else. Sindikuonapo mvuto ine. Wojambulayonso ali ndi vuto mujambula bwanji munthu wina nkumakayika pa social media. Ufiti basi ndiye mwapindulapo chani.

Anthu awa amaonjeza. Even some bishops are crazy. This zomba bishop is now selling trees to raiply by bypassing all church structures claiming the trees belong to the diocese, and therefore his. I thought the trees belonf to church but there are people who have jurisdiction over them.

Bishop John Ryan is a great man who wants to promote the work of our Lord God. Some Bishops pretend to do the work of God but inside them there is big rot. Our church the Catholic is the biggest and well respected spiritual wise and i commend the Bishop for his zero tolerance on Fathers that abuse their work in the name of the church. A good example is of Father Mac Mkandawire who married late Elizabeth Nyirenda (ex- sister) MHSRIP.
