CCAP Blantyre Synod to lift suspension of 4 clerics

Blantyre Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has said it will lift the suspension of four clerics who accused the synod’s leadership of politicising the pulpit by urging clerics to campaign for Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the fresh presidential election held on June 23.

Ngalande (R) and other clerics to be reinstated 

The four are the Reverend Donnex Mateyu Ngalande of Chileka CCAP who is also coordinator of the group, the Reverend Dezio Maloya of Sharpevale CCAP in Ntcheu, the Reverend Frank Mkwezalamba of Madziabango in Blantyre Rural Presbytery and the Reverend Duncan Kananji of Blantyre City Presbytery.

Blantyre Synod general secretary the Reverend Billy Gama said the synod wants to reinstated the ministers “to move on.”

Gama, a sympathiser of the DPP, said he has held discussions with the clerics and they showed remorse for holding a media  briefing without the synod leadership’s consent.

He said the synod will have a management meeting on Thursday this week to decide on lifting the suspension.

Ngalande claimed that the synod leadership held a meeting at Likhubula Youth Centre in Mulanje on May 28 where 95 ministers were taught how to encourage CCAP members to vote for DPP.

But DPP presidential candidate immediate former president Peter Mutharika lost to  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Rev Dr Lazarus McCathy Chakwera, who is the new Head of State.

Billy Gama made me stop going to CCAP church in the southern region. Malawians were suffering under Peter Muthalika and other dpp cadets and yet he gave it a deaf ear for love of money. Billy Gama belongs to hell. Heaven is not for him.

Soon after the news about the clerics suspension , I hinted here that the suspension was subject to the elections I said if dpp wud win , these 4 men of God were doomed. It was a calculated move aimed at seeing on which side the elections wud go. Now that dpp had lost , Billy Gama is toothless . He can’t bite , or even a little His strength lied in dpp as it was where he got the money for his synod post Billy Gama is a big cadet He even shamelessly told and encouraged his former xul… Read more »

The corrupt synod’s top brass really had no choice but to reinstate the rebels. See, the former’s patron, the corrupt DPP, was shellacked during the FPE. So Gama and his ilk won’t have any more cash to do the bidding for their real master: DPP (not God). ( Gama and his friends literally bribed the so-called Christians to vote for them during the synod elections, using our taxes. Mxii!).

Bvuto la a Malawi is Chikristu cawo is just lip service., the majority of them anyway.God this God that but their actions do not reflect their beliefs and they are quick to condem those who worship quietly as not belonging to god or Mulungu samudziwa. Not every one who makes noise about God is a true follower 0f God.God will punish you.
