AFM Congregants fight over church property

MASVINGO – The faction battles ravaging the
Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) last week saw members of the Mucheke Assembly dragging
each other to Masvingo High Court fighting over the church’s stand at Number
27990 Dare Street, Mucheke.
aggrieved church members who are aligned to Reverend Cosam Chiyangwa’s camp includes
Masvingo overseer Reverend Donard Ndoni as well as pastors Joseph Madzinga,
Julius Mutume and Jaison Gwara. They appealed against the congregants of the
reform faction which is led by Reverend Amon Madawu.
two factions were having a misunderstanding as to who is the rightful owner of the
Mucheke Assembly Church, the public address system, kitchen utensils,
furniture, decoration materials and Holy Communion cups stationed at 27990 Dare
Street, Mucheke.
High Court ruling by Justice Joseph Mafusire was that the two factions should
co-exist and have equal access to the moveable and non-movable property.
of the two factions were also ordered to agree on the use of premises in terms
of the calendar of events so as to avoid clash of events and ensure proper
mutual use.
two factions shall also be jointly responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and
shall jointly share any expenses such as utility charges and salaries for staff
stationed on the stand which shall accrue on the property.
