Midlands State University (MSU) has banned defrocked Pastor Martin Gumbura’s End Time Message Church from holding services on campus ,following the government order to close the church’s a activities after its leader was jailed for 40 years.
The group has however remained adamant by continuing with services on campus , despite the order from the Ecumenical Chaplain’s office to stop services forthwith.
Speaking last week , Chaplain Menson Mpofu said the church was banned from conducting services on campus.
“End Time Message church has been banned from conducting services. You know their story which is awash in media,” Mpofu said.
“The knew it and that is the reason why they did not come for this meeting,” he complained as the church’s representatives did not attend the meeting to discuss Christian activities on campus.
RelZim could not get a comment from the group’s chairperson as he declined to comment on the issue.
End Time Message’s fate on campus is hanging in the balance after leader of another faction, Gumbura was convicted for rape and possessing pornographic material in his house.
Gumbura’s actions came under widespread attacks from Pastors and spiritual leaders in the country , while national leaders took every opportunity to hail scathing insults on the church leader who maintained his plea for innocence.
He however appealed the case in the High Court without success.
