By Staff Reporter

President Dr Lazarus Chakwera is this morning presiding over the African Methodist Episcopal Church Centenary celebrations in Kasungu.

The celebrations are set to be held at Hannock Msokera Primary School Ground Traditional Authority Mwase.

African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded by its first Bishop Richard Allen in 1794 in Philadelphia.

Born out of a desire to right racial inequality, oppression and social injustice, the AME Church is a community of trailblazers that holds the distinction of being the first independent Protestant denomination to be founded by black people.
