The Archbishop of Canterbury is traveling to Zimbabwe in hopes of being able to stop the ongoing violence caused by renegade Anglicans under the leadership of Bishop Nolbert Kunonga.
“Williams is pressing to meet President Robert Mugabe over the matter according to Chad Gandiya, the Harare bishop for the Anglican Province of Central Africa.
Mugabe and Kunonga enjoy close ties.
[…]“At the moment there are parishioners being banned from church buildings by Kunonga with help of the police. They are worshiping in open spaces, under trees or booking other church buildings,” Gandiya said.
Some of the churches that have been taken over by Kunonga are the Borrowdale church, the main cathedral in central Harare, Dzivaresekwa, Kuwadzana and many other Anglican parishes where the police are chasing away people belonging to the mother church. “
