The General Assembly of the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP), mother body of three synods of Malawi namely Livingstonia, Nkhoma and Blantyre CCAP, has expressed concern with conflicts rocking the church.
Moderator of the General Assembly, Reverend Dr Timothy Nyasulu, has said the leadership in the three Synods handle misunderstandings.
He is quoted in the Daily Times commenting on divisions rocking Kanengo CCAP where the congregation have broken ranks with Livingstonia Synod in protest against Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango’s suspension.
Rev Nyasulo told the paper: “The wrangles are not only haunting Livingstonia Synod but are also prevalent in Nkhoma and Blantyre Synods. In Nkhoma Synod, we hear some ministers are not happy with the allegations of the missing K60 million at the secretariate; while in Blantyre Synod, we hear politics amongst the ministers is taking centre stage. What is wrong with our churches?”
He said the CCAP conflicts are putting the church members to “shame”.
According to the report, Nyasulu said a recent meeting in Lilongwe with the Assembly General Secretary revealed that political influence had impact on the leadership of the Synods and that the quality of leadership at the Synods was also a concern
He stressed that the General Assembly is “ ashamed” with the conflicts and fear that “such conflicts can mislead dedicated church members.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
