Rogue bishop stealing Zim church assets

2012-09-14 00:00

“IF [excommunicated] Bishop Nolbert Kunonga tries to take over the Anglican church in Matabeleland, he will be playing with fire,” a prominent Zimbabwean church leader warned yesterday.

Kunonga is an outspoken supporter of President Robert Mugabe and Zanu- PF who left the CPCA and formed the Anglican Church of the Province of Zimbabwe (CPZ) in 2008. He appointed himself archbishop of the CPZ. He also forcibly prevented people from worshipping in Anglican churches unless they supported him. “Given that Kunonga is Shona, and the history of atrocities that the [Korean-trained, largely Shona] Fifth Brigade committed in Matabeleland in the 1980s, the people of Matabeleland are most unlikely to stand for Kunonga’s interference there,” Gandiya said. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
