Scholars of New Religious Movements in Malawi (Chakanza 1991; Pauw 1993) have divided the mergence of African Initiated Churches into four phases. The first phase includes churches that were founded by Malawians: in the colonial period, from 1880 to 1964. The second phase is marked by political independence in Malawi in 1964.
