Police have launched an investigation into the Zolozolo CCAP Church fracas which happened on Sunday morning.

Northern Region Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, Augustus Nkhwazi, has confirmed that earlier today, church service at the Mzuzu based CCAP congregation was disrupted after some choir members remonstrated against the leadership on annual membership fee payment.

It is reported that the Session Clerk informed the church that the congregation stipulates that only choirs that have paid an annual membership fee of K35,000 are allowed to sing during church services.

“Last week three choirs that have not paid their membership fee sang in the church without consent from the authorities. Due to this, the church anticipated the same this Sunday and sent some elders to hire some police officers from Mzuzu Police Station who fired in the air to restore peace and order when the concerned choirs were demonstrating against the decision and this resulted in disruption of the church service,” reads part of the communication which we have seen.

This did not go well with some of the congregants, who caused a scene at the church, prompting intervention from the law enforcers.
