Rev. Chimwemwe Mhango shakes Livingstonia Synod, CCAP pastors and followers defect in Karonga

Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango, founder of the Redeemed Presbyterian Church (RPC) on Sunday shocked the Livingstonia Synod’s Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) elders when nine of their pastors and and hundreds of followers defected to RPC.

Rev Chimwemwe Mhango makes inroads in Karonga for his RPC

Mhango, who is the former CCAP pastor under the Livingstonia Synold based in Lilongwe, was launching his RPC church at Maghemo hall in Karonga.

The launch was part of his plan to expand the church across the country.

Mhango was welcomed by hundreds of people some dressed in CCAP uniform when entering the hall.

“I am very happy today especially because of your hospitality. Your coming shows that you are all seeking for the truth and power of the Lord, and you will find as well as receive it today” said Mhango.

He said his church will also deal with humanitarian support, education, apart from spreading the word of God.

After seeing that half of its members absconded from the Sunday services to join the RPC, Greenwell Mwamondwe who is one of the CCAP church elders at Kabwiri in the district attacked Mhango and described him as a rebel.

“Don’t be deceived with him, he is a rebel. He is there today because of CCAP, his education is because of the Livingstonia Synold,” said Mwamondwe.

Mwamondwe, who is also the former ambassador to Zimbabwe and lawmaker,  further said “mukupusikika waka namazgu ya munthu uyu.

In an interview, Mhango said the doors are open to anyone and my aim is not to fight with the CCAP but to do the work of God.

Mhango said he believes that he is called by God to serve Him in a special way.

He said: “It’s just the grace of God. I feel that there is a task that God wants me to fulfil.l. God can use any situation to make things happen differently. I feel called in a special way and these developments are a huge encouragement to my life.”

Mhango  unveiled the RPC at its Kanengo Congregation after cutting ties with Livingstonia Synod following his refusal to take up a post in Euthini.

Livingstonia Synod’s Reverend Peter Mhlanga, who was ministering at Thunduwike congregation under Jambo Presbytery in Mzimba, recently also joined the Redeemed Presbytery Church .

    Who is Chimwemwe Mhango to shake the Synod. If 2 pastors rebel against the Synod basi Synod ingagweee? He shud go back on to his drawing board yaaa!!! plant your own Church umawona a Synod amakuyankha mbwerera zako umabwebwetazo? You shud be ashamed of yourself. Time will come when you will pay for your deeds, believe it if you know law.

    Some people who are against Rev. Chimwemwe Mhango will still write bad about him. Kuonetselatu kuti sizamulungu.. Munthu at no time o ever heard him kunyoza Livistonia Synod but thanking them kuti ndimakolo ake, anamthandiza.. Za Mpingo Wa Kanengo tose tikudziwa kuti akupempherabe momwemo chifukwa a khristu akuti adamanga okha pamene synod ikuti amamanga pasi pa synod yi..thus why inapita Ku court. Ena akuti they will chose to use force, why people of God? Ndiposo ndi kuopseza chabe kutengela kuti ochuluka ndi ati. Let’s just leave this God’s hand kuti ndizochokela kwa iye let it be, chifukwa ndi maso athupi sitingaone koma auzimu..

    whether in CCAP or Redeemed, you just an organisation branch and not a church. it God to come in flesh, suffered and shed His blood on the cross to buy His church Acts 20:28. His church is to be known upon His name Acts 4:12. Just think with with me “Redeemed” means to buy back. we see this
    first in old testament when the Israelites were made free from Egyptian bondage, which was foreshadowing the demption Christ has made to all nation and you think its a name for a church. there is only one church Christ died for Matt 16:18, how to be addede to it, see Acts 2:37ff.

This is not surprising Chimwemwe Mhango nthawi yina ndi ma frastrations ake anayambanso ka Church kake ku Mzuzu kadakanika pano wati akatole mpingo womangamanga wa Kanengo.

  9. Mgemezulu says:

    This so called man of God Chimwemwe Mhango is too crooked. He is money hungry. Ask him as to why he is still housing his church in the building belonging to Livingstonia Synod? Changing the name of the Church, changing uniforms in the building which is not his. If he is man enough let him leave the Livingstonia building and stand alone. Its where he will test if all those in the building belong to him. He hates people who are trying to put sense in him to leave the building. All this is because the Supreme Court of Appeal is taking long to finalise the issue otherwise the people who belong to the Synod praying at TTC and the whole Presbytery will one day take the law into its own hands and storm the building to chase this man out of its building. Give me space the writer of this article will witness this ordeal. Chimwemwe Mhango in the presence of people pretends to be a good man stay with him you will no him. The people following him will regret they will help him fullfil his failed mission and he will leave them padzuwa mark my words. You dont know Chims big croooook. The people you are seing in the whole have been imported from his Kanengo Redeemed they boarded a bus on Friday morning to Karongo. I can count they could be 4-6 from Karonga.

    Ndalama ndiyo yasuzga apa.

  11. pixy says:

    If Livingstonia Synod has rotten policies what do you expect?More pastors and christians will defect to RPC.

  12. ungwelu says:

    Does God recognize churches? NO!!!!!!!!!
    A Chimwemwe Mhango, all you want is money and that is why you refused to accept the administrative posting to Ekwendeni because at Ekewendeni there is no money. Then you refused to go to Euthin because there is no money there. Do not lie to the innocent souls because God sees you. So it is not surprising that you have invaded townships. There people of various origins in these townships, including foreigners.
    The problem with many of us particularly the urban poor think God is in a Churches. Sorry guys He is not there. Find the Living God in your heart. Be patient and obedient to authority which Chimwemwe did not. How do you follow such a leader?
    With these churches calling themselves redeemed sprouting all over there will be great confusion and
    that is when Our Lord Jesus will come.
    Again, why did Chimwemwe use “Presbyterian” in the name of his church? My simple understanding is that Presbyterian belongs to C.C.A.P. General Synod to which Blantyre, Nkhoma, Livingstonia, Harare, and Lusaka belong.

    1. Brown Gondwe says:

      Chimwemwe Mhango should stop claiming God has sent him to do this that’s total rubbish he is money hungry and those who are following him are misguided and not real Christians.God will punish you and don’t misled people just because you want more monies that’s why you refused to go to Ekwendeni as you want to stay in towns where rich church members gave our more money,shame on you

  13. Richard Soko says:

    I feel it is wrong for Rev Chimwemwe Mhango to wage war against Livingstonia church which trained him. What does Jesus gain from cannibalism?

    1. khanyiziral says:

      Is he waging war? He was launching his new branch so if the people defected there, what wrong has he done? People have different likes and choices.

  14. jando says:

    There is nothing in wrong in diversity. This has happened in Roman Catholic. Has the church ended? Why must it be news if it happens in CCAP.

  15. Wanangwa Gondwe says:

    amen ….Rv Dr Chimwemwe Mhango u where called for a purpose……….. 1 thing I love in u papa mulibe nthawi yonyoza synod but doing his work u where sent for…… proud to hv u papa in our church Kanengo ..lero tinali kukaronga next ku khondo we…. preaching der gospel pali pose

  16. nzima says:

    End times. Come soon Lord and redeem your people before they get completely damaged beyond repair by these force and power hungry pastors.

  17. chiperoni2 says:

    Truth is that Jesus Founded His Church on the day of Pentecost and has been growing ever since.Therefore all these that men claim to have founded are theirs fulfilling what Paul said: In the last days men will heap to themselves teachers after the itching of their ears…… Jesus said I have come in my fathers name and you receive me not, but if any come in his name him you will receive.

    1. Atomic says:

      I like this million times. You have written the truth from the Bible.

  18. Geofrey says:

    problem is u people ur using church as political form

  19. Redeemed says:

    Those of you who are saying its fake news you were not there in Karonga. Wait for another shocker in Mzuzu and Mzimba in two months time. If you want proof ask your synod officials.

  20. Themba la Mathemba says:

    In the state of denial! How long will be there? This is the beginning of the end of the Livingstonia CCAP political Party.

    We want to hear the Word of God and not politics in Church. For politics we have Kalua, Mzomera and Mkandawire to entertain . For too long we bore your political ceremonies. Dada Mhango rescue us. Werenga Mau timve. Very soon we will crown his Bishop of all Bishops

  21. thifo says:
