Court orders Rev Chimwemwe Mhango to vacate Kanengo CCAP Church premises: Loses case to Livingstonia Synod

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.

Rev Chimweme Mhango: Court kicks him out of Livingstonia Synod premises

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.

Much as I have great respect for Chimwemwe here for once he goofed big time. The plot number and everyting they built were registered under Livingstonia synod-how can he and his legal team not see that legally the property does not belong to their new church. If I build a house
at someone’s else plot; does that make the plot mine??? Though you had invested a lot of resources at these borrowed premises it is not too late to search for your own plot and legally call it your HQs and build your esteemed RPC church.

This is a very fair judgement. The church building and equipment were under Livingstonia Synod

Its just a regrettable situation at hand. The church should not reach this status. It’s a great shame to the world over there. What will the unbelievers out there say to us? It’s a shame. I feel shy
