EFZ disheartened by the immoral conduct of some clergymen

General News EFZ disheartened by the immoral conduct of some clergymen

Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) has condemned the immoral behavior being exhibited by some clergymen in the country.

EFZ Chairperson Paul Mususu says it is disheartening that some clergymen are implicated in immoral activities.

Bishop Mususu pointed out that clergymen were leaders in society who should lead by example.

He said it is particularly shameful when the custodians of morals are ones exhibiting immoral conduct.

Bishop Mususu has since challenged religious leaders in the country to preach through their conduct.

And Christian Coalition Pastor, Clergy Chombela, said the wicked conduct of some clergymen was a source of embarrassment.

Pastor Chombela called for the resignation of such clergymen as they were tarnishing the image of the church in the country.

He noted that even though clergymen were only human and not exempt from temptations, they are spiritually better equipped to withstand enticement.

This comes in the wake of numerous reports of sexual misconduct by some clergymen.

This week Police in Lusaka detained a 42-year-old church elder of Emmasdale Seventh-Day-Adventist Church for alleged defilement and abduction of a 15-year-old girl.

Emmasdale police officers picked the church elder yesterday after he was apprehended by members of his church in Monze on Tuesday on his way back to Lusaka from Choma.

And Police spokesperson, Bonny Kapeso, confirmed the development in an interview in Lusaka yesterday.

“Yes, it is true that the police are holding a 42-year-old elder of Emmasdale Seventh-Day-Adventist Church for defilement and abduction of a 15-year-old girl,” he said.

Mr Kapeso said members of the church apprehended the elder on Tuesday last week at a filling station in Monze where he was trying to refuel his car on his way from Choma.

He said the elder was carrying the girl with him.

Mr Kapeso said the church elder is detained at Emmasdale Police Station and will appear in court soon.

  1. Should have condemned Fr. Frank Bwalya.. That insane prelate advocating for violence on behalf of Sata.

  2. These clergy, its a shame. Ama catholic priests bapena sodomising young boys, now that I think about it most alter boys in African countries where sodomized by these monsters in sheep skin. I guess they were and still are terrified to tell their parents.

  3. With the mushrooming of all sorts of churches nowadays, there must be an umbrella body charged with enforcing strict code of conduct of all clergymen/women. They’re really getting out of hand. These hyenas hidding in their midst must be flushed out.

  4. Even YOU Mususu.
    Opening your DIARY can even make someone vomit.
    Its very-very unfortunate that the crop of CLERGY MEN and WOMEN in our country is HIGHLY COMPROMISED.
    God will surely one day give us good ones.

  5. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

  6. #1 and 2 how has this suddenly become an issue about the catholic priets? This issue affects all different faiths and its got nmore to do with individuals than the churches they belong to. Grow up!!

  7. Good news those who spoke well.

    As for “This week Police in Lusaka detained a 42-year-old church elder of Emmasdale Seventh-Day-Adventist Church for alleged defilement and abduction of a 15-year-old girl“, this is very unfortunate but more details as opposed to what has been reported are needed to clear the matter on what exactly happened. This “Mr Kapeso said members of the church apprehended the elder on Tuesday last week at a filling station in Monze where he was trying to refuel his car on his way from Choma. He said the elder was carrying the girl with him” report leaves much to be desired. It is very difficult to interpolate on this news as the girl is not said to have been his daughter or whatever he was doing with her.

  8. #6, POMPI, Its an example of how the clergy are misbehaving, am not singling out the catholic priests. If you find it offensive, then am sorry but thats a fact. Here in the USA, the catholic church has compensated hundreds of families regarding sodomy of young boys. Infact one diocese is bankrupt because they had to shell out too much $$$ for court fees and settlements. Now google that!

  9. #6 Brother /sister Pompi,dont wory,people always go out of topic and for some,they cant stay without mentioning Catholic Church,they suddenly become sick!!!! Meanwhile,lets just continue to pray for our Pastors and leaders of the churches for the light of the Holy spirit and for Mother Zambia.

  10. It is our duty as church members to pray for these leaders, for they are main targets for the devil. The devil has but little time and is working on the principle ” Attack and destroy the sherpard and the sheep will scater away”. Let us pray without ceasing in these last days…………

  11. Imwe ba clergy simumvela! Using those white collars and robes to pull off fast ones! Elo under those robes, tamufwala natu underpant, making it easier to remove the ntwenu and do the chitenichi!! Shame on you!! Some of you even doing these aboninable acts in the name of the Lord!!!

  12. #11 BA MOZE, LMAO, UMM, looks like mwapyana ba RB, the flags keep changing every day.When did you live the US?

  13. #8 Dalitso you are welcome! No worries my dear, this affects all and for me i’m more concerned about the victims coz they are usually left with emotional scars for life. Only problem is that some people tend to miss the point and just tend to paint the picture like its a Catholic thing when all the religious circles are affected, muslims included.

  14. It’s high time somebody talked openly and loudly about the immorality of these clergymen especially sex wise. It is all denominations which are affected. Look at this SDA elder – Ba patriach again!!!. And some catholic fathers/priests are the most irritating e.g chilya ichili T chi Father Nsama from Ndola – m told the bafoon even appealed against his sentence pa fya bupulumushi. Why can’t the Bozo resign? Chopeti!!

  15. Shallow and daft journalism,e.g Gen Singogo is a UCZ church elder, Chiluba is pentecostal prophet and they are facing serious cases in the courts of law or already sentenced but no one ever mentioned their churches. You can only bring in the name of the church where the suspect is an employ of the church such as a Pastor. This man is just a member of the church and as such the name of the church should not be ridiculed or brought into odium. Think of it, how many prisoners in jail right now where once elders and deacons of various churches and if we were to mention churches every time one commits an offence, we would all stop going to church. By the way Henry Kapoka is a catholic citente secretary for woodlands extension.

  16. #12 Dalitso. Good afternoon. Don’t worry about this flag thing pa LT. Myself am in Zambia but the flag comes out ati Italy (infact i had to look up this flag coz i didn’t place it). The same me when i blog from my laptop the flag changes to USA. I have been wondering maybe the make of the computer you are blogging from also contribute tuma flag though i have no explanation for those with Zambian flags. By the way my Desktop is Lenovo (Italian) whilst my Laptop is Sony Vaio (American). Tetiwishibe any way limbi LT kuti ayafwa apa.

  17. 15 mala msana wandalama greetings. On “This man is just a member of the church and as such the name of the church should not be ridiculed or brought into odium. Think of it, how many prisoners in jail right now where once elders and deacons of various churches and if we were to mention churches every time one commits an offence, we would all stop going to church. By the way Henry Kapoka is a catholic citente secretary for woodlands extension“, I personally think it is good to give out all truth so that other would be culprits are careful not to bring the name of God to disrepute. Do you remember the artilce by the POST tabloid over the SDA Church and some adultery message that was on the front page?

    Let us just understand them all.

  18. I will talk about catholic priests/ nuns as I am a catholic myself. These clergy have vowed celebecy , but what has come out of USA and UK parishes is completely disgusting. As for the Zambians ones our women are not safe at all. Those who can not toe the line can follow Milingo’s example.

  19. isn’t this why the whole clergy and organised religion was abolished in the new testament. The clergy is like a catalyst for corruption when you bestow powers on people and expect them to be righteous then this is what you get. Hebrews 7, matthew 23 stresses that the importance of only having one leader in Yeshua, but these clowns have other human beings in charge of people

  20. Christianity is a way of life .let us be wise enough to differenciate the wolves from sheeps .
    moreover the very people who make these guys fall, in traps are the same christians they evangelise to . The fact is there but let us give them a chance , they are human in nature ,it does not mean when one is a priest then ,they are immuned from sin . let pray for them.
    we are all sinners and let us not remain sinners but strive to holiness. after all aliyense ali nayo madobi-dobi . lol

  21. #4. Donovanosis, Has a sick mouth, some one should help him. He loves to slander. He believes one sin is bigger than the other. Those who slander and those who abuse themselves have one end, hell.

  22. so now the issue is on Christians and our conduct…..

    Its true its a shame for one who proheses to be Christian (wose off a leader) to misbehave or have illconduct. The truth is we are ‘in the last days’ where we should xpect immorality to reach its peak. Lets understand that Christians, leaders in form of priests, pastors, deacons, elders etc are also human beings who can sin….. Being a Christian is a good step because atleast one reaslises that despite being a human being sinful by nature,one can look up to God for help. Lets not dehumanise any Christian, (REGARDLESS OF AFFILIATION) and instead help them realise their wrong and avoi9nd the same sin. 2day its our brother 2morow it may be u. Some of you condeming may even be in worse off situs…. look at your own conduct 1st

  23. Jesus said: “Be on the watch for the false prophets that come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will recognize them.” False prophets would produce “worthless fruit.” (Matthew 7:15-17) The ones above are such
