Zimbabwe’s bishops threatened, abused, report claims

 ANGLICAN bishops in Zimbabwe are reportedly receiving death threats and one worshipper who refused to follow an excommunicated leader was killed.This was revealed in a document viewed by the Associated Press (AP) that the worldwide head of the church, Rowan Williams, who was on a visit to Zimbabwe, gave to the country’s longtime ruler, President Robert Mugabe last Monday.The Archbishop of Canterbury, Williams, handed over a report to Mugabe detailing incidents of intimidation.The church in Zimbabwe has been divided since 2007, when a pro-Mugabe bishop was excommunicated for inciting violence in his sermons.Followers of Nolbert Kunonga maintain he is still the church’s legitimate leader, and they have taken over the main cathedral, hospitals, the church’s bank accounts and some 55 schools with the help of police loyal to Mugabe.“In Harare, the police have disrupted church services and have been using tear gas and baton sticks to drive people out of church buildings,” the document read.“As a consequence, most churches lie empty each Sunday, except where a handful of Dr Kunonga’s priests and their families are able to occupy them.”Priests and deacons are arrested without charge on a weekly basis, often on a Friday, allowing the police to hold them over the weekend without charge, so that they cannot minister to their congregations, the report said.Anglican bishops in Zimbabwe have received death threats over the phone, in person and at gun point, it added.And in February, a parishioner, who had refused to join Kunonga’s church, was found murdered, the report said.“We have information which very strongly suggests that she was murdered because she belongs to the Diocese of Harare CPCA. She had received threats to that effect in preceding weeks and days as she consistently refused to join Dr. Kunonga’s Church.”
