Zambia Police
A clergy man of Presbyterian Church of Zambia (PCZ), in Chipata district has been charged with affray for allegedly fighting in church.

Eastern Province Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala said Reverend Sonye Banda of Mchini congregation with four other church members are reported to have fought in church after some church members blocked the Reverend from entering the church.

Mr Sakala said Reverend Banda was blocked from entering the church due to alleged mismanagement of the church funds.

Mr Sakala explained that the incident occurred on Sunday but was reported to police on Monday leading to the arrest of the five.

Mr Sakala however, disclosed that all the five were released after they paid an admission of guilt.

    • Over funds? He will be president of Zambia some day. People who either steal from unsuspecting clients or fight over funds have some potential. People in the diaspora being negative? No, factual and speculative with evidence, in State House!

    • People in the diaspora are the only ones who can have the courage to criticise our hopeless government. Inside Zambia if you criticise and you are a businessman you lose business opportunities, if you are a politician you are ostracized, if you are a journalist you can’t work for ZNBC Times or Daily Mail in short you can’t have a job. It’s a barrack not a nation. You can’t live in your own country unless you are agreeing with govt. Citizens or robots?

  1. Even men of God are now fighting for worldly things in this Christian nation. This is as a result of the national day of prayer.

  5. PRESS RELEASE from the Presbyterian Church
    We the Elders and members of The Uniting Presbyterian Church at St Peters congregation hereby affirm that the affray which happened at our Congregation on 28th October 2018 was as result of misunderstandings between a few members of the church and the Reverend Sonye Banda. The Misunderstandings were not about mismanagement of funds. We also affirm that the Reverend did not participate in the affray that took place on the said date. The Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa aims at bearing witness to the serving love of Jesus Christ, building vital, reforming congregations for worship, Ministry and discipleship. The church also aims at visibly proclaiming the kingdom of God through Unity Justice, Peace and Love.
    We therefore regret…

    • At one of congregations, a treasurer was killed using witchcraft because he had refused to authorize withdraw of the church. This church must be watched.

  6. We therefore regret that the reported story in the media does not represent the facts on the ground, Rev Banda is an upright God fearing Man. The case in question with the Police in Chipata is closed and the Church leadership has dealt with the case amicably.
