APOSTOLIC Faith Mission in Zimbabwe (AFM) headed by Amon Madawo has gone after suspended church pastor, Panganayi Makarichi demanding return of a top of the range vehicle the cleric was given by the church before the split.
Makarichi allegedly got dismissed on allegations of plotting a coup against Madawo.
Madawo was declared legitimate leader of the church recently by the Supreme Court following a drawn-out tussle for control of the religious institution with his rival Cossam Chiangwa.
AFM has filed an application demanding the return of an Isuzu KB currently being driven by Makarichi arguing the latter had no authority to hold on to the church’s property.
In an affidavit by Briton Tembo, AFM says the car should have been returned long back.
“This is an application for a vindicatory relief compelling Makarichi to surrender to the applicant its motor vehicle, an Isuzu KB 300 Double cab truck following the termination of the respondent’s employment with the church sometime in December 2018,” said Tembo.
“Makarichi has been in possession since the split of the church in 2018 to date.
