Apostle Gitwaza declares new Executive Committee and fires some of the people who started the church with himPosted By: Rutayisire Patience - On:06/02/2017
In a meeting which gathered all Bishops and Shepherds of Zion Temple in Rwanda on 28, December 2016, they willingly notified it in order to confirm it. Each mandate should last 2 years.
When Zion Temple status changed on 5, Feb, 2017, they established new leadership system that include; Executive Authentic Word Ministries and Zion Temple celebration center Rwanda as Apotre Gitwaza addressed on Facebook.
Members of the new executive committee of Authentic Ministries and Zion Temple are: Apotre Gitwaza (irreplaceable) , Bishop Charles Mudakikwa, Rev Dr. David Bulambo, Pasteur Nobert Runazi, Pasteur Hubert Kagabo, Pasteur Vincent Hakizimana, Pasteur Kamanzi Symphorien, Pasteur Karengera Ildephonse and Pasteur Uwera Egidia. Apotre Dr Paul Muhirwa Gitwaza remained on Visionnaire post. Those who lost their positions are: Bishop Dieudonne Vuningoma, Bishop Muya, Bishop Claude Djessa and the former assistants of Gitwaza.
The new committee
Gitwaza is said to have dismissed them after 4 months out of service and he officially allowed them start their own churches. Some of Christians who talked to Inyarwanda.com were astonished to see Gitwaza fire people who built the church with him and served it until it becomes a solid church. Bishop Vuningoma said that he didn’t know anything about his dismissal.
A prayer for the new committee
Speculations have been around that the dismissed bishops had unsuccessfully tried to dethrone Apostle Dr Paul Gitwaza who founded the church and who is its representative all over the world.
Bishop Claude Djessa and his wife are no longer members of the committee
Bishop Dieudonné Vuningoma and his wife are rumoured to have been definitely fired from Zion Temple
