Church elders of Faith Ministries, a church in the Matobo District of Matabeleland South, have expelled its pastor after he impregnated six of the church’s married members.
The church elders brought to an end the sexual terror Derek Ngulube, the pastor had rained on its membership. The six married women had been impregnated by the pastor within the last one year. “What he did is just disgraceful and a person like him could not be allowed to be part of a religious institution because what he did goes against all that Christianity stands for. Some members were threatening to beat him up but they were restrained by the church elders.” The pastor is said to have opened up after prophesy by a visiting preacher that said that the church had an elder who was in the habit of bedding married women.
“He tried to deny the allegation but later came back to his senses and said he was the one in the prophecy,” the source said. The church elders summoned the six women’s husbands and gave them an account of what had transpired. When Pastor Ngulube was contacted for a comment, this is what he had to say: “I feel bad and I want to say I am very sorry for what I did. If I could be given another chance I wouldn’t repeat the mistake. I also welcome the punishment that the church leaders gave me.”
