Zimbabwe: The gauntlet is down

Twin victories for Zimbabwe’s Anglicans

Courts in Zimbabwe have ruled that a sacking of Anglican teachers was illegal and that a former bishop must hand over a church to the new bishop.

Both decisions favour the Anglican Church recognised by Lambeth Palace rather than the breakaway church instituted by renegade bishop Nolbert Kunonga. They come in the wake of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s tour of Zimbabwe, in support of the Anglicans who have suffered at the hands of Kunonga.

The day after a Harare court judged that Kunonga’s dismissal of staff at the Daramombe Mission was unlawful, the Ministry of Education ordered their reinstatement.

Also, Zimbabwe’s High Court has told former Bishop Elzon Jakazi that he will be jailed for contempt if he does not relinquish control of a church to Bishop Julius Makoni. It seems that the gauntlet is down, now. Watch this space?
