Speaking during the same meeting which took place at the Lilongwe District Commissioners Office, CCAP General Secretary Vasco Kachipapa said it is regrettable that the statement was made.

Kachipapa said Nkhoma synod has been in existence with Chewa People for a long time and both believe in peace all the time.

Lilongwe District Commissioner Dr Reckfold Palani commended both parties for resolving the differences amicably.

“We are happy that our counterparts the Nkhoma Synod have swallowed their pride by apologizing withdrawing the example of Gulewamkulu given.So we are happy with that.”

Lukwa has since pledged to inform Kalonga Gawa Undi that the matters have been resolved and that all is well now.
