RIP Mama, Troubled AFM Church Founder Dies

When people go home to be with the Lord, ours is only to accept that, their assignment that the Lord has created them for, their assignment that the Lord has send them in this earth to do is done.

It is a well fulfilled and admired departure for someone to do the work of God and be remembered for the impact that person has made in the body of Jesus Christ. Unlike a lot of men of God that died without even amending their ways.

They died without getting a chance to apologize to the people that they have hurt. They died without getting a chance to prove themselves that, whatever people thought of them, they were wrong. That's when you see that this life that we live, it is not our own.

You decide to do something tomorrow, tomorrow may never come. So we thank God for the life that she has lived, may God bless you soul

By A Correspondent- One of the pioneer leaders of the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) of Southern and Central Africa, Elizabeth Sibanda has died, aged 79.

Sibanda succumbed to diabetes at a private clinic in Bulawayo on Thursday last week and will be buried on Wednesday at Lady Stanley Cemetery in Bulawayo.

Reverend Morgan Sengwayo founded the AFM of Southern and Central Africa in 1955, and MDC-Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is one of the pastors in the church.

Sibanda’s daughter, Ordinance M’ckarm, described her late mother as a visionary church leader. She said:

She was a dedicated church elder and leader who played a crucial role both in church and in our family.

My mother was a pillar of strength, a humble person full compassionate and a defender of the faith, who showed selfless dedication to the old-time religion.

She was a visionary church leader who had a spiritual calling to assist vulnerable groups.


She also advocated for the inclusion of youths and women and in church decision making processes.

Sibanda together with her husband, Reverend Richard Sibanda were one of the pioneers who worked with Rev Sengwayo during the church’s formative years.

She was actively involved in the missionary trips dating back to the mid-1950s, which saw the church spreading its wings to the SADC region.
