Pro-Mugabe Anglican Bishop Wins Church Assets

From Zimbabwe-

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Bishop Nolbert Kunonga should have control of the Anglican church assets, the state-owned Herald reported.

The paper said Deputy Chief Justice Luke Malaba upheld an application by the Diocesan Trustees for the Diocese of Harare led by Kunonga, who lost control of the church in 2007 after he withdrew his diocese from the Anglican Church Province of Central Africa, in protest against the tolerance of homosexuality by Anglicans in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Upon establishing his anti-gay independent Anglican church, he was replaced the Anglican Church Province of Central Africa who last July appointed a Bishop Chad Gandiya, sparking a bloody battle for the control of the church which has sucked in Zanu (PF) and the main faction of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

But of concern to the congregation had been the partisanship and bias of the Zimbabwe Republic Police. The police had ordered that only the Kunonga faction should worship in the Anglican premises.
