In a judgement, Case Number HC9664/11, Justice Tendai Uchena said Elson Madoda Jakazi, Reverend Bernard Maupa, Reverend Vusimuzi Ndlovu and Reverend Katanga as first, third, fourth and fifth respondents shall be “forthwith incarcerated in Chikurubi Maximum Prison for 90 continuous days” if they defy this provisional order.

They have also been ordered to pay all legal costs. The provisional order was issued at the High Court following an application by the CPCA in Manicaland where they sought an order “to restore possession and control and use of the All Saints Zimunya Church.”

The CPCA was represented by the Bishop, Julius Makoni, the Board of Trustees of Manicaland Diocese and Musiwa Mwashita, a church member at All Saints Zimunya as applicants.
