AFM has been marred by conflicts since 2016 when the side led by Reverend Madawo, then led by Reverend Aspher Madziyire, embarked on a Constitutional reform process.
The development sparked controversy with the side led by Reverend Cossam Chiyangwa arguing that the process was unconstitutional hence null and void. Speaking to H-Metro, Reverend Madawo said:
When we were elected into office in November 2018 I made a plea for reconciliation and unity in the church, I am still repeating my words, this is still our position as AFM in Zimbabwe. To everyone who left the church, to everyone who followed pastor Chiangwa our hands are still open for reconciliation the doors of the church are open for them, this includes pastors, elders and congregants alike.
He added that some unsuspecting members of the church were led astray by leaders. His message is in sync with the pledge he made when he was elected by his side in 2018 to lead the church.
Meanwhile, the side led by Bishop Chiangwa has since appealed against the High Court ruling at the Supreme Court.
