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.


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


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!!!


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?

mwama du.

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.


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

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”.


Koma zavuta mpaka kusintha constitution yampingo Bakili style
