AFM Pastors Sue Madziyire, Want Adoption Of New Constitution Declared Null And Void

Underfire Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) Church in Zimbabwe leader, President Aspher Madziyire has been taken to court by two disgruntled pastors, Amon Chinyemba and Arthur Nhamburo. 

The pastors want the High Court to nullify the National Workers Council meeting that amended the church’s constitution.

The pastors also want the court to order the AFM leadership to adopt the correct procedure for amending the church’s constitution. Part of the pair’s court papers read,

While the provision in the constitution stipulates that the board of elders is also part of the National Workers Council, rogue elements, who were not part of the board of elders, were bussed to the meeting despite the existence of Clause 3 of the High Court order barring non-members from attending…It is worrying the church is nearing a major split because the respondents have gone on to act on the unlawful resolution of 15 September 2018, which resolution was never voted for and was adopted without deliberation.

Madziyire and his lieutenants are yet to respond to the lawsuit.
