Robbers Invade Church and Steal Cash

Robbers invaded St Gerard’s Catholic Church in Borrowdale and stole undisclosed amounts of cash in the early hours of yesterday.

In a statement Rector and Parish Priest Father Mark Chikuni said the robbers invaded the church premises and broke into the parish office, blowing safes and taking cash that was being kept there before banking.

Between 01:30hrs and 0200hrs this morning we heard sounds of explosions in our compound.

“These culprits also entered the main church through the cry room and broke into the Parish Priest’s office, the sacristy, and the altar server’s room. They desecrated the sacred rooms, turning things upside down most likely looking for more cash,” he said.

Father Chikuni said no one was harmed including the guard on patrol.

He said the church’s finance council is now working hard to increase security urging the public to support them in any way possible.

Father Chikuni also said the church does not keep cash on the premises.

Robbers Invade Church and Steal Cash


The Zimbabwe United Methodist Church (UMC) described as “a betrayal of the Gospel of Jesus Christ” a decision by its mother body to recognise homosexuality.

This comes after General Conference delegates of the UMC early this week, in the United States, voted overwhelmingly in favour of homosexual practices in the church that has a footprint globally.

By a vote of 523 to 161 after about an hour-and-a-half of debate, General Conference delegates eliminated the 52-year-old assertion in the denomination’s Social Principles that “the practice of homosexuality . . . is incompatible with Christian teaching”.

In the same vote, delegates affirmed “marriage as a sacred, lifelong covenant that brings two people of faith (adult man and adult woman of consenting age or two adult persons of consenting age) into a union of one another and deeper relationship with God and the religious community.”

Randall Miller, who chaired the Social Principles Task Force that led the development of the revisions approved over the past week, said this was a historic moment.

It’s been 40 years of work for me and others to remove the incompatibility clause from our Social Principles and really live in through our belief that all people are sacred,” said Miller, who is gay and long advocated for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in church life.
