Archbishop Bernard Malango: Henderson May Not Return

"The office of the Anglican Archbishop of Central Africa in Zomba has indicated that the decision to order Bishop James Mwenda to return to Zambia does not mean giving a chance for rejected British clergyman Paul Nicholas Henderson to head the Diocese of Lake Malawi.

"Provincial Secretary Eston Pembamoyo said Monday Mwenda had to leave the country to allow for neutral discussions between Anglican bishops in Malawi and the laity of the Lake Malawi on the way forward.

"Pembamoyo ruled out the possibility of reconsidering the diocese’s first choice, Henderson, who was rejected following allegations that he supported gay activities in the United Kingdom.

“Henderson’s case is a closed chapter. There is no way we can start discussing him again,” said Pembamoyo.

“After all, Mwenda’s contract has not been cancelled and if in the long analysis it transpires that he should not come back he will still be paid for the period he was going to serve as diocesan bishop,” said Pembamoyo.

"He said the other two Anglican bishops, James Tengatenga and Christopher Boyle, will meet the complainants to find out their concerns before inviting Archbishop Bernard Malango to agree on the future leadership of the diocese.

“Quite a number of people were doubting if Reverend Henderson is a man of sound faith and we have found that he is not, according to research by the Anglican Church,” said Malango.
