Presbyterian News Headlines For The Week Ending April 7, 2012
In this week's news articles the most complex come from the country of Malawi and the Nkhoma Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian. It began with a church-wide pastoral letter on Sunday April 1 that was critical of Malawi's President Mutharika and his government for economic conditions and government corruption.
The Government responded a couple of days later saying that the church was not acting in good faith, was promoting unrest and was motivated by money because of a K10 million pledge by the government that was not fulfilled.
This story took an unexpected turn at the end of the week when President Mutharika died unexpectedly of a sudden heart attack. (BBC Article)
