The members want to force out the Anglican Bishop Trevor Mwamba who has refused to quit despite a petition calling for his resignation. The faithful say Siele should probe whether the foreigners working for the church have work permits. A source in the church told Monitor that some foreigners are working for the diocese without the required papers. He alleged that Mwamba has appointed a South African as Dean and Vicar General even though there are qualified Batswana who can fill the position.

"The work permit for the Dean was rejected on the basis that there were Batswana who can take up the position.

We want the minister to have first hand information on misfortunes that have befallen our church," the source said.

He added that the dean is a close friend of Mwamba hence his appointment was not on merit but favouritism.

The recent petition calling for Mwamba's resignation followed a High Court ruling in favour of six priests who challenged their dismissal by the bishop.

Mwamba allegedly failed to obey the court order and tried to stop one of the priests from resuming duty until the police intervened. Some church members are disgruntled by this turn of events and want the bishop to resign.
