Church briefs PM on chaos besetting Harare diocese

The Anglican Church on Monday briefed Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on the chaos currently besetting the church in Zimbabwe in which ex-communicated Bishop Nolbert Kunonga is allegedly clinging to the church’s financial books and properties.

The regional synod, officially known as the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) and comprising Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe dioceses, told Tsvangirai that Kunonga was no longer a bishop or member of the Anglican Church as he had been ex-communicated after deciding to withdraw from the church together with Manicaland Bishop Elson Jakazi, a former army chaplain.

Albert Chama, a Zambian bishop who led the delegation that held discussions with Tsvangirai, told journalists at a press conference that the meeting with the Prime Minister was also meant to convey the church’s condolence message in the wake of the death of Susan Tsvangirai and nephew Shaun Tsvangirai.
