USPG Ireland has forwarded this communication from The Rt Revd Dr Chad N. Gandiya, Diocese of Harare, Zimbabwe.
Our Supreme Court hearing took place this morning (22 October 2012) from 9.30 to close to 13.00hrs and finished all the matters. Most of the Kunonga appeals including that of Manicaland were thrown out. So for Manicaland we go back to Justice Bhunu’s judgement which was in our favour. The Harare matter was heard and the judges reserved judgement. They will notify us in due course (within 3 months I am told) their judgement. I am very pleased that it’s over so quickly. It went very well and we are happy the way it went. This does not mean you stop praying – please continue to pray as the judges write down their judgement. The end is in sight now – Praise God! Please share with friends.
Linda Chambers, National Director of USPG Ireland said, ‘This is very positive news, and we hope and pray that the violence and intimidation suffered by our Anglican brothers and sister in Zimbabwe will cease. USPG Ireland has travelled with Bishop Chad on this difficult journey and we are grateful to everyone in the Church of Ireland who has supported him in prayer. There is still an opportunity to help Bishop Chad to pay legal bills and assist him to rebuild his diocese.’
