In his report to the general conference, CCZ president Rev Dr Alfred Kalembo explained that regrettably during the year under review, the council lost a dedicated member of the executive committee.
“Mrs Mbaza was a chairperson for the two CCZ run teacher education colleges and a member of the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church”, Dr Kalembo said.
After he read out an obituary that he requested the august house to stand and observe a moment of silence in memory of the late Mrs Mbaza. In breaking the silence Community of Christ Bishop Catherine Mambwe offered a prayer of thanks giving for the life of Mrs Mbaza during the time she was part of the CCZ family.
