20 people who burnt down a church arrested

20 people who burnt down a church arrested by the police.

Twenty people were arrested from Mkata Village in Chileka, Blantyre, for allegedly having a hand in torching the Headstone Prophetic Ministry’s church building.

In an interview with the press, Chileka Police Spokesperson Jonathan Phillipo confirmed the development.

Members of the Mkata community had earlier stormed Chileka Police Station to demand their release.

A squabble over funeral rites for GVH Mkata between members of Headstone Prophetic Ministry and the Gule Wamkulu cult is believed to have prompted the enraged community to set fire to the church and vehicle last Sunday in Malawi.
