More Than 100 Orphans In Anglican Care Left Vulnerable

Kunonga’s loyalists on Monday morning evicted three Sisters, namely Sister Dorothy, the Matron, Sister Plaxedes, who was in charge of medical needs and Sister Anna Chitsura who was in charge of the library and the orphans’ studies from Shearley Cripps Home, an orphanage housing more than 100 orphans and located at St Johns Chikwakwa in Murewa, Mashonaland East province.

The supporters of Kunonga, affiliated to his Diocesan Trustees for the Diocese of Harare based their actions on a Writ of Ejectment, which was obtained on September, 12, 2011 after he caused the Registrar of the High Court to issue it against the Anglican Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) led by Bishop Chad Gandiya.

The eviction of the care givers came even though human rights lawyer, Jeremiah Bamu of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights had on Friday served an urgent chamber application on Kunonga’s Diocesan Trustees for the Diocese of Harare seeking to set aside the Writ of Ejectment issued by the High Court.

Meanwhile, Justice Tendai Uchena will on Wednesday preside over the Urgent Chamber Application filed by ZLHR lawyers challenging the Writ of Ejectment.
