Supreme Court of Appeal sitting Blantyre has ordered Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango, founder of the Redeemed Presbyterian Church (RPC) and his followers to vacate a church premises belonging to CCAP Livingstonia Synod.
The Court also ordered Mhango’s church to surrender band equipment and Kanengo CCAP Church back account to CCAP Livingstonia Synod.
Judges Frank Kapanda and Anaclet Chipeta ruled that all property belongs to the CCAP Livingstonia Synod as it was bought for the church, not for an individual.
Reverend Mhango broke away from the Synod and formed his church but clinged to the Kanengo CCAP Church, was constructed under the Synod.
The Supreme Court said despite that the property was procured at a time when Reverend Mhango was the moderator Kanengo CCAP Church, the property belongs to the Synod.
Reverend Mhango broke away from CCAP Church three years ago after failing to come to terms with the Synod’s decision to transfer him from Kanengo in Lilongwe to Euthini in Mzimba.
Kanengo CCAP Congregation equally protested against their moderator’s transfer but the Synod maintained its decision forcing Mhango to break away after serving the Synod as an ordained Minister for 21 years.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
