PRESS STATEMENT ON THE ARREST OF A BISHOP FOR SEXUAL ABUSE OF UNDERAGE GIRLS

The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has learnt with disbelief the conduct of a named church bishop who sexually abuse underage children in the name of conducting exorcism.

The church has observed that there has been an increase in the number of people claiming to be men of God using the name of God and authority they are entrusted with by members of their congregations to conduct outrageous activities such as taking advantage of innocent children and destroying their future.

The arrest of the so called bishop should be an eye opener to society to understand that we have “wolves in sheep clothing” and must make informed decisions of which houses of worship they should join.
We urge police to continue with the good work of arresting, without delay, all perpetrators of all forms of sexual violence and other vices against humanity.

The church members should also ensure that they investigate the backgrounds of their pastors before they can trust them to preach the word of God. It is the duty of parents to ensure that their children attend church services or meetings under strict supervision.

It is the duty of every citizen to ensure that we do not allow evil to take root in church and society. The church should be protected from bad elements and be allowed to remain a respected safe haven which offers solace and comfort to society which it has always done and this should remain so.

    • Zambians are brainwashed into believing in witchcraft and satanism and worshiping their pastors. The Bible is misinterpreted by many, be careful. Worship God not your pastor.

      Give tithe to your family!

  2. The Council of Churches must not waste ime fighting the so called dudious “men of god”.The real fight must be against the rapid spread of Islam in Zambia.This religion which is like a sugar coated bitter pill.Here are a few facts;

    1}The moslem men are marrying christian girls and converting them to Islam.If a christian man tries to marry a moslem girl,all hell will break loose eg the recent persecution of a Christian woman in Sudan.
    2} Mosques are being belt all over Zambia in prime land and these disturb
    transmit noise every morning.

    Please council of Churches it’s high time you opened your eyes to this threat.They will not stop until they place a moslem in State house and turn Zambia into an Islamic nationas.

  4. Bishop Matongo also sexually abused 2 girls below the age of 15 in the name of sisterhood. 2 of his wives were at the forefront making sure baba Matongo had intercourse with the girls. His father had 55 wives and the youngest was 14 yrs. In 1993 Dr Ludwig Sondashi, Legal Affairs Minister then under Chiluba’s Govt sued him and before the case could be concluded he died. Ifyo apuswike mambala.

  6. Churches must form a professional body same line as ZICA, LAZ etc. Pastors, Bishops etc must qualify to be members of this body for them to be allowed to practice. You can not have every donkey claiming to be ‘man of god’ practicing as Pastor or Bishop! Government must move in and cause Parliament to pass Law to regulate these criminals!!

  7. Sad. It is not only under age girls. These fake Pastors target beautiful young women as well. They will accuse them of Satanism with the hope of gaining sexual advantage when the women go to them for exorcism. Zambians should move away from s****pid superstitions in the name of Christianity.
