Khumbo Kachali blasts Livingstonia Synod


Former Vice-President, Khumbo Kachali on Friday took a swipe and blasted church ministers within Livingstonia Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) for dragging some of its leaders to court over alleged ‘unconstitutional’ elections that were held at Loudon General Assembly last year.

Kachali said the current squabbles among the synod’ leadership is putting its own Christians to shame.

He was speaking during a fundraising dinner which the synod Health Department organised to raise funds for its three hospitals of Embangweni and Ekwendeni in Mzimba and Golden Memorial at Livingstonia, in Rumphi.


Kachali took advantage of the gathering to express his concern over the squabbles that he said are embarrassing members of the synod.

Reverends Timothy Nyasulu and Clifford Baloyi and Church Elder Spencer Mhone dragged the synod’s General Secretary Reverend Levi Nyondo and the entire leadership to court but the court ruled that the two parties should institute a mediation team to discuss the matter out of court within 21 days.

“Such meetings unite us as your sons from different areas. I am saying such meetings are better than meeting in courts. Let me tell you, the moderator and all the ministers, that if you are dragging each other to court, you put us to shame.


“Courts are made for us politicians and thieves. If you also go to courts, what will we, politicians, do? How are you going to teach us about forgiveness?” Kachali queried.

However, speaking in an interview, Baloyi said it is unfortunate that Kachali seems to be used by the synod leadership to defend the church.

“When did the synod appoint Kachali to be speaking on issues of the synod? Why is he blaming us in this matter without hearing from our side?” Baloyi queried.

He then condemned the synod for allowing Kachali to express sentiments that can lead to chaos.

However, speaking at the event, moderator John Gondwe avoided commenting on Kachali’s speech.

He only concentrated on challenges the synod hospitals are facing, disclosing that the synod has managed to raise K1.6 million out of the budgeted K30 million for the year 2017.

During the event, Kachali also took advantage to sell his newly formed Freedom Party, announcing that he will soon unveil its ideologies and manifesto.
