Court documents rot at Reverend’s compound


Embattled Blantyre Synod of the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) Reverend Stanley Chimesya’s has been served with a letter whose contents are not yet known because the letter remains unopened.

It was sent through un known messenger and dropped at his compound having failed to convince the Reverend’s wife to sign get the letter on behalf of her husband.

Reverend Chimesya, who the Synod suspended on February 8 this year for speaking to the media on Church affairs, told Times Group that the family does not know what is inside the envelope as it remains unopened.

His transfer to Nchalo Congregation in Chikwawa was also cancelled due to the transfer which was effected just days after he was dismissed as Synod’s Prison Chaplain.

Chimesya’s wife, Mphatso, has said that the man who she insisted she did not know went to their house, which is within the Synod headquarters premises, with an envelope and asked for the Reverend.

“He said he was here to drop an envelope containing court documents which the Reverend was supposed to acknowledge receipt by signing somewhere. But when I told him that my husband was not around, the man said I could sign on his behalf which I refused. I told him that I could not use my signature on documents meant for her husband,” Chimesya’s wife said.

She said when the man continued pressing for her signature, she gave him Chimesya’s phone number and after talking to him for some minutes the man left the compound.

The wife said the man went to the house again on Friday but Chimesya was not around.

“He again tried to force me to sign and receive the envelope but I told him what I had said the previous day. Then he said he would just go into the house and drop the envelope there.

“This is when I closed the fence door and left him standing outside the compound. That’s when he just threw the envelope into the compound and it is still where he dropped it,” she told Times Group.

The Reverend said apart from the letter of suspension that he received last month, there has been no communication from the Synod secretariat.

Chisanga could not disclose the content of the envelope, saying it is Chimesya who can open and say what is in that envelope.

“Why should I tell you things that he is supposed to tell you? We have sent him an envelope, he is supposed to open it and tell you what is contained in it. It is true we sent him a letter but why should we tell you the content when he can’t open it?” Chisanga said.

Synod General Secretary Reverend Alex Maulana said it is his deputy, Moyenda Kanjerwa, who is dealing with issues to do with Chimesya.

The disagreement between Chimesya and Maulana reached the climax last year before the Synod’s electoral General Assembly in August. Maulana was accused of getting financial support from the Democratic Progressive Party while Chimesya’s camp was allegedly pro-People’s Party.
