Reverend Dr. Levi Nyondo has won an unprecedented third consecutive term in office as general secretary for Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod.
He won with 206 votes against Rev. Timothy Nyasulu’s 109 votes.
The elections, dubbed “bloody and controversial”, were hampered with great political interference.
Nyondo told Nyasa Times after the elections that he was ” grateful to God.”
Reverend Joseph Mwale , who lost of on secretra general post when he came third, is new deputy general secretary with 82 votes. He was reelected.
Nyondo is a fierce critic of the government and there has been reports that the Peter Mutharika administration was bankrolling Nyasulu to unseat him.
But Nyondo said he is sett to continue providing checks and balances to the State.
“We will continue to speak on behalf of the voiceless,” he said, “when government has done something good, as a church we will give credit.”
He said time for elections are over and they need to work together.
