Catholic Church suspends socialite priest indefinitely, after picture of abuse of position leaked.
The Catholic Diocese of Mzuzu in Malawi has suspended its socialite priest who was pictured making merry in Lake Malawi with a female member of his congregation.
In the picture, that appears as if the socialite priest was offering Baptism rite for the lady, the two were seen in a questionable post and position. It has been tagged as an abuse of the office.
The priest, who has been identified to be Father Ndlovu was obviously having beach fun, making merry, enjoying himself, in Lake Malawi, situated in Muzuzu.
The Bishop of Mzuzu dioceses, John Ryan has said in a letter to all societies and institutions in the diocese that the Father Charles Ndhlovu has been suspended from the entire dioceses, and therefore can never participate in any duty as a priest any longer.
“It is out of deep sorrow and regret that I write to inform the public that Father Charles Ndhlovu is now suspended from all priestly ministry and all roles related to it. He can no longer be seen participating in any ministerial duty in this great diocese,” says Ryan.
He announced that the suspension includes the section that he can no longer reside in any diocesan house and he has no access to any diocesan facility.
“The suspension of Fa. Charles Ndhlovu in an indefinite one, until such time I write again with additional instructions,” says Ryan.
Ndhlovu has recently headlined social media platforms with pictures of him and a woman, which some people say was one of the members of his congregation, apparently making merry with her in the Lake Malawi.
No one can really explain what the two are doing or the reason for staying in such position, but the point is that Father Charles Ndhlovu has been suspended indefinitely.
Check out what some social media users had to say about what the socialite Father was caught doing:
Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) has suspended the transfer of forex on its internet banking platform. Customers who try to make transfers from their domiciliary account have been left with disappointed. This is in addition to limitation withdrawing FX from the counter.
No reason has been given for the suspension but when a member of our team reached out to the bank on Twitter, they confirmed via private message that there is indeed a suspension.
When asked about issues transferring domiciliary account funds to other GTBank via internet banking, below was their response:
“Hello, please be informed that the service has been temporarily suspended and will be restored as soon as an update is made. We apologize for any inconvenience this must have caused.”
When asked about when it will be reinstated, the team could not provide a time frame. Their was response was “You will be duly notified once there is an update. Please bear with us.”
We cannot verify if this is as a result of a Central Bank of Nigeria policy.
But a Tweet from Zenith Bank Yesterday confirmed that withdrawal and transfer of FX are available on their internet banking.
If access to FX transfer is available via other banks, it might just be an internal GTBank issue.
Unfortunately, the bank is yet to issue a statement on this, many of its customers in disarray.
Here are some customers who have expressed their irritation on Twitter:
Please confirm my FX transaction so I can complete a part of my postdoctoral fellowship research project. I have been waiting. This is a very important part of my research. 🙏🏾 @gtbank_help@gtbank
What is happening to fx transfer? I made a transfer of 300USD To my Uncle and you are not approving it. You said it’s must be a related party. The first option was not a related party now that I used related party my transaction was not successful, no response no debit. Fix now
You are right. There seems to be individual discretion exercised. My experience with @gtbank_help@gtbank is that they are not allowing dorm to form account transfer within thesame bank. The bad aspect is the customer management process whr everybody just keeps quiet. Appalling
@gtbank frustrating her FX Account customers. You don’t want to pay us from the counter , why also bar us from making transfer? To make money na wahala, to also collect money you make, na wahala.😭😭😠😠😠😠#HeartlessGTBank
So @gtbank has decided to leave those of us who own a dorm account with them grounded. They have suddenly stopped withdrawal of FX currency. How do they want some of us who are freelancers survive? No human feelings, I thought my bank was supposed to make life easy for me
