More Sex scandals In Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church

Sex scandals continue to rock the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church as another pastor in Liwonde, Pastor Banda, has been suspended over allegations that he was caught pants down .

According to a report in Friday’s Weekend Times, General Secretary of the Seventh day South Field Luke Limbithu confirmed that the pastor was suspended to pave way for investigations.

“As a church, we have procedures that we follow and we have done just that. At the moment we are treating it as a rumour or just an allegation until we have gathered evidence that is when we are going to act on it,” Limbithu is quoted as having said.

When asked about incidents of similar nature in the past, Limbithu said they were still investigating, according to the tabloid.

“We are still investigating those cases because when we have that kind of information we treat it as just a rumour until there is evidence to prove otherwise,” he said.

Limbithu reportedly stunned the paper hours after the interview when he called again remonstrating that he did not want to be quoted.

“Please I don’t want to be quoted in your story so don’t include me in your story, so don’t include my name because if you do I will take legal action,” he said.

In December last year, the ‘scandal sheet’ carried a story in which pastor Mark O’dala, resident pastor of Ndirande SDA was accused of snatching Andson Kazembe’s wife, Brenda Chona, after the pastor was asked to mediate in the family’s wrangle.

Kazembe wrote a letter complaining about the pastor’s actions and asked the church to act on it but the church says it is still investigating.

In January this year, the Weekend Times carried another sex scandal story involving Pastor Victor Kachola who is studying abroad but was involved with a married woman, Janet Nkhoma.

The scandal was revealed through e-mails that were being exchanged between the two which contained crispy and lewd details of their sex encounters and their plans to elope.

    Another couples of years peopke will forget it. They are just human. Maybe they are good guys. It’s their weakness. They are just in the wrong profesion.

    Seventh-day Adventists claim to be a far more noble class than the general public. Moreover, they insist on being heaven’s exclusive franchise. In fact, they are busily climbing the ladder toward perfection so that Jesus can return (see COL, page 69). However, based on their repeated behavior, Jesus will NEVER return. The first perfect Adventist has not yet been identified.

    Sexual scandals leveled against men of God are increasing, Do others enjoy making funny of others or it is real. At least nobody has been proved to nave done it then I wonder the truth about these stories.

    This is a sign of the last days strange things will happen. Lets sure pray and submit all our clergys in the Holy ghost so that they stay protected. Abale kulakhwa ndi kwa aliyense ndiponso tiyeni tiwathandize kuti cholakwacho achisiye ndithu. Otherwise pointing fingers wont do us any gud. Nawonso ndi anthu with feelings ndiyeno angathe kuchitha zoyipa koma tiyeni tiwapemphelele achokeko ku zoipazo. Hope these men of God have families and the families should stand beside them until the allegations are over. Awa ndi mayesero basi, nthawi yake. Lets not judge we will be judged too. Jesus came to save sinners right. Tonse tinaphelewera pa maso a Mbuye koma mwa chisomo tipulumuka. Dziwani kuti mpingo wonse wa A Mbuye ulipamabvuto ndiyeno tiyeni tiwuyikize m’manja mwa Chauta basi. This applies to all religious leaders regardless of their church.

      lets not defend or accuse others without sufficent evidence…much as you trust him, u dont have sufficient proof to make his case rt. However, there is sufficient evidence to suggest the same that he might have done a bad act. let inquiry bring us a true reflection of what transipired…this is said with true respect and didginity to our feelings
