Rev Nyasulu drags CCAP Livingstonia Synod to court: Sues reverends Nyondo, Chipofya for defamation

Reverend Timothy Nyasulu and eight other clerics of the Livingstonia Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) have dragged the synod leadership to court challenging the re-election of the Reverend Levi Nyondo as general secretary (GS).

Rev Nyondo: Sued for defamation

Nyasulu, who is CCAP General Synod moderator, argues that the election of Nyondo and others was unconstitutional and wants another elective general assembly.

The clerics are also suing Nyondo for  maliciously saying that Nyasulu and two other  had collected K50 million from Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to palm oil members of the church not to vote for Nyondo.

The Livingstonia Synod is renowned for being critical of government, especially the DPP administrations, due to the introduction of the quota system of selecting students into public universities, among others.

Nyondo is a key fierce critic of government.

According to  statement of claim dated May 22 lodge at the High Court in Mzuzu by lawyers   at Lameck and Company, the complainants claim Nyondo accused  Reverend Clifford Baloyi of soliciting K30 million to kill him.

The petitioners want Nyondo and Reverend Douglous Chipofya to face defamation rap as they claim that their reputation as members of the synod is “still greatly injured.”

The statement of claim says they have asked Nyondo to retract the allegations but he has refused to do so “thereby aggravating defamation.”

Nyondo and Chipofya could not immediately comment.

    You would have settled this problem within your quarters, not going to a civil court. Here it means both teams do not want to come around the Synod Table & amicably resolve the issue. May the Loving God whisper into your hearts so that you come together.

  2. Nkhombokombo says:

    Za Church tisamatengerane ku Court chonchi, we areb diluting the the reverency of the Church. Mpaka a mention of zipani mu Church!! shame on you!!

    Mkhritu kapena mbusa wotengera Synod ku court akuyenera atuluka Kaye Synodyo kenako azipita ku khoti

  5. Tiyanjane says:

    So meanwhile, where are Dr. Nyasulu et al worshiping? In the same synod headed by Levi Nyondo? If so, I wonder how they will face their congregations this coming Sunday. Lots of explanations to give!!!

  6. Rhodrick says:

    I thought being a Rev. is a calling from God. If at all there are problems in the church why not go to God than run away from Him.Look now, some people who can distinguish the synod from the Nyasulus and Nyondos are castigating one of the smallest tribe in the north. Why?why?why?

  7. mwama du. says:

    I thank God for the failure of Nyasulu. God guided me well not to vote for this man called Nyasulu. He is a shame to the synod.
    We know you are war with God’s people.

  8. ESTERY CHIBAMBO says:

    Nkhani ngati izi were not there when my Achika ( Rev. Wedson Chibambo) was GS something is just not right with CCAP especially Livingstonia Synod, mpaka ku court waliska

  9. Douglas Ndindi says:

    Are there any people out there who have the courage to preach the word of God to these leaders? If there aren’t any, then I say “Come now, Lord Jesus! Yes, before things get worse in this world. Come Lord”.

  10. Nophiya says:

    Koma zavuta mpaka kusintha constitution yampingo Bakili style

  11. mtete says:

    I have always thought squabbles like these are associated with political parties like what is happening in DPP, MCP, UDF and PP.
    Is CCAP Livingstonia Synod Afford in disguise?

  12. George Goodwell Sabrina Nyirenda says:

    Anyasulu zomerani kuti ndalama mkapoka, and what you are doing it’s because of pressure iyo wa DPP wakupani.

    meeting yinu mkapangiranga Ku nyumba ya Khumbo Hastings Kachali, pa Mzimba Boma, and this meeting was attended by Goodwall Gondwe, Vuwa Kaunda, Jappie Mhango, etc

    so kutipusika apa yayi, u will never won this case in Jesus Name,,,,,,,

    Ine Moses Mkandawire palije ichi ningachitapo chifukwa ntchito yane yakuzuzula vyakuwalo kwa Synod, vyamukati mwa Synod yayi, Chifukwa cha malamulo ya Church and Society ya CCAP Synod of Livingstonia.

  16. Joseph Moyo says:

    NYASULU SHOULD JUST RESIGN FROM THE CHURCH AND CONTEST ON DPP CANDINDATE WE ALL KNOW THIS IS A PROPAGANDA BY DPP AND THEY ARE SPONSORING NYASULU BUT YOU WILL NOT SUCCEED GOD IS WATCHING WE KNOW DPP IS DESPERATE THEY WANT SOMEONE LIKE NYASULU WHO IS WEEK TO LEAD THE SYNOD.
    LETS WAIT AFROBAROMETER HAS ALREADY SPOKEN YOU WILL SEE USELESS NYASULU,SO STUPID LIKE HIS DPP

  17. Mphwache wa Bingu says:

    Kkkkkkkk koma Atumbuka simuzatheka. Mukhale nokha mukukangana mwaona kuti a Nkhoma synod akusiirani malo. Nanga mukazakhala mboma zizayenda koma? Bolanso Chaponda ndithu!

  18. Gonapamuhanya says:

    No wonder no mtumbuka sadzalamulura dzikoli!

  19. Jimmy Likagwa says:

    Kodi in all these simukumuwona Chimwemwe Mhango akukhwiyizila amend akuwadziwa bwino anthu wa camp ya Nyasulu ndi Baloyi ndi ma sympathizers a Chimwemwe Mhango. Ndiye wawona watsala pang’ono kuluza mlandu wakewu in Jesus name akufuna kuchita divert attention ya wlanthu from Mlandu wake kuti atanganidwe wanthu kunyoza Synod. Ngati Ali owopa Mulungu atsutse a Nyasulu ndi Mhango ngati ndunama. Nonse muchoke mu Synod mukuwononga dyera lavuta si Company tu ndi ndalama za a mphawi muwauka nazo.

  20. Andrew says:

    Chitima nane chanikola chomene kwa imwe balongozgi wa CCAP. Why do you submit yourselves to civil courts on issues that would have been amicably resolved in-house? Shame upon you, no reasonable person will understand this!

  21. Typical of Livingstonia Synod. This confederation organisation stinks. Just register a political party agalu inu

  22. Mine says:

    Should I say signs of the time No,but ndalama ikamalankhula chulungamo chimakhala chete.

  23. PILLAR PILLARD says:

    TO SAY THE TRUTH. PLEASE ALL SYNODS SHOULD REMOVE THE NAME CCAP. IT CANT WORK. WE SHOULDHAVE “THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF NKHOMA”, “THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF LIVINGSTONIA” AND THE “THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF BLANTYRE”, SO THAT YOU CAN BE FREE TO DO YOUR OWN THINGS AT YOUR OWN TIME WITHOUT REFERING YOURSELVES TO BE UNITED IN THE NAME OF CCAP. THIS IS FALSEHOOD. AS A PRESBYTERIAN MYSELF, I WOULD RATHER ASSOCIATE WITH OUR TRUE ADENTITY BECAUSE EVEN OUR LITURGIES ARE DIFFERENT. THE ANGLICAN CHURCH HAS ONE SYSTEM WORLDWIDE, THE CATHOLICS HAVE ONE SYSTEM WORLDWIDE, ETC. WHAT YOU ARE DOING IN YOUR SYNODS SHOULD NOT POLUTE EVERYONE IN THE NAME OF CCAP. WHO AGREES WITH ME FELLOW PRESBYTERIANS?

  24. Patrick Phiri says:

    This is not a church at all.

  25. Harawara says:

    Livingstonia is a religious political party. It meets all qualities of political party and practices both political and religious rituals. So its not surprising to see them fighting because that is what happens in party politics. My call is to followers – followers stop following these devious and myopic leaders. No salvation through them. My advice to Nyondo and henchmen get your Synod registered in the register of political parties. We enjoy more when hearing your political outbursts that sermons. In you and your church there is falsehood and deceit and you will pay for every prayer to say. You will burn in the hottest part of hell because you are leading many innocent ahinya astray.

  26. Yow says:

    Please sort out this internally,do not give a space to the devil to ridicule you our Spiritual leaders,please May God unit you.Contact and dialogue is mother of every problem.Please discuss in house.Tingajilengeska ku wanthu awo watikhumbila viheni.Chonde tunani mitima waliska,vitimba heti yayi.

    koma Yesu wakhaladi pang’ono kubwera…nkhondo zama Church zachuluka

  28. mwaka says:

    I wonder if Nyasuru is a senior minister and if at all he is salved?? but what they are doing is abnormal for real believers and learnt for that matter. hey Nyasuru and friends ur disgracing the body of Christ. i swear you will never again be a leader in the synod in Jesus name

  29. Francis Matope says:

    I thought it is the circular world that should seek help from the church. Why then are you dragging each other to court? You are the hope of the hopeless, you are the light of the world. Why should you rely on the injustices of this world? It’s a big shame. Imitate the first church.

  30. Bt synod says:

    I have been saying this all along, dont blame nkhoma synod for the squabbles with Livingstonia synod…. Anthu awa they survive on squabbles and others did not like my thoughts. Now what is this? Livingstonia will always seek issues wherever it goes and whatever it does including its branches….
    Church and society…… Lisap……. Musatinyase afiti opemphera inu

  31. Mwipwa says:

    Learn to be God fearing People. What examples are you showing to the followers? If you are sent to continue the work of Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior surely you would not be in the situation you are in now. We are really tired of hearing clergy fighting over leadership. You don’t even mind that God gave his only son because of our sins including the ones you Clergy are doing now(Leadership wrangle is really shameful).Please let those want to serve in truth and reality continue the service of our Lord Jesus Christ. Can you not emulate from other Synods please. Do not mislead God’s people surely you will be answerable because of your selfishness.

  32. AMDALA BAMBO says:

    more of politics than holy spirit, Almighty God forgive this leadership for deviatiog from religious principles and keep on winning souls. they meddle even in politics, what aquagmire. recently nyondo stood on podium to promote a leader a mcp at kamuzu memorial day, fancy that ? where are we going, man of GOD? TO TAKE HIM TO COURT IS THE RIGHT MOVE FOR THY SHALL NOT OPPRESS OTHER, THE BIBLE SAYS

  33. GODFEARING PERSON says:

    These churches are only using the name of God but they are far away from the will of God. Be careful church members, these so called men of God are only misleading you and make you more poorer while they are enriching themselves and their families. See what is happening here. The Body of Christ seeking justice from the world! What a shame. The church is supposed to be an example of the Kingdom of God. Please understand the bible people, God is more important than these Crooked prophets, apostles, bishops, reverends, pastors etc. They are now using magic to demonstrate the power of God to make people believe them. Be Careful People!

  34. Hatton says:

    Koma abale blue ndi nyatwa mpaka abusa a Nyondo ali mu blue. Koma mbusa blue atomuyenera uyo.

  35. Dzambo says:

    Nyasulu, Nyasulu, self_centred,frustrated Trinity International university PhD holder. You never seek the good of anyone nor are you competent in anything. Nyondo is fearlessness and stands on principles while are a real sell_out!

    1. Chiukepo says:

      Imwe ba Dzambo, “Nyondo is fearlessness”? I thought he is AFORD president dedicated to fight for his territory, the ‘North’? This ‘fearlessness’ Nyondo or synod must re-examine its public conduct because it is far from religion. They are giving CCAP and christianity in general a bad name just like the Islamic fundamentalists are giving Islam a bad name with their terrorism. Just an advice.

      1. Dzambo says:

        Ba Chiukepo,Yes Nyondo is independent minded, he speaks his mind guided by the moral duty as a minister, especially in the context of marginalisation. You can’t compare Nyondo with Nyasulu or Malasa of Anglican or Bishop Bvumbwe. These are complete sell_outs, sycophants in religious garb.

        1. Dzambo says:

          I prefer a minister like Nyondo, who fights for the welfare of the poor wherever they come from than the enemies of the demos evident in some of the religious leaders in Malawi.

  36. Mwana Wa M'Phalazgi says:

    Mose baliska imwe mukuzunulana apa, Ivi mwayamba kuchita ivi Vya satana mwenecho. Kwali ndimwe a Rev. Nyasulu, Baloyi, Nyondo , Chipofya panyake kuti Livingstonia Synod. Mose ivi mukuchita ivi vya satana. Ninjani wamulowani?? Dr. Laws wakayamba mu Muzimu, Imwe mukukhumba kumalira mu thupi. Who has be witched you guys???

    Which Bible are you using now? Panyengo ya Chimwemwe Mhango mukaluta ku Khoti, tell me is that Chimwemwe Vs Livingstonia issue over? Or has any body won the case?? This is hypocrisy at its worst. Sono mwayambaso yinyake. I would suggest that mose mwanjilika na vibanda. All these Reverends mentioned in the above article muchoke. I am saying ALL OF YOU, GET OUT OF LIVINGSTONIA SYNOD. Just go home to your villages and start practicing witchcraft. You are NOT CALLED TO BE GOD”S SERVANTS. Which court has resolved Nkhani ya M’Mpingo??????

    NO, vibanthu ivi vyazelezeka.

  37. lesley says:

    This is not an church. Its an organization where people seek benefits and fill up bellies.. Koma ngati mulumana ndikudyana, chenjerani mungaonongane.

  38. Conte says:

    This church is a joke. Always quarrelling either among itself or with others. Recently we had the saga with Chimwemwe Mhango. Musiye kukulirana mutima. Sinkhani yopitila ku court iyi.
