Pastor bashes female congregant

Pastor bashes female congregant
Published: 12 February 2019 (43 Views)
A PASTOR with the Family of God (Fog) church in Beitbridge, Henius Muzopa, faces arrest for allegedly bashing a female congregant on Sunday.

It is alleged that Muzopa, most likely influenced by factionalism in the church, responded to a greeting gesture by congregant Thokozile Moyo, with fists when the two met at their church premises in Dulivhadzimo.

Muzopa switched off his phone yesterday when the Southern Eye sought comment.

According to witnesses, Moyo arrived at the church with Gloria Muleya Chimurudze to see an elderly member of the church who was sick.

Moyo held out her hand to greet Muzopa, who is from a rival faction, and he allegedly responded by punching her instead. He kicked her in the back as she turned to flee.

Moyo was briefly hospitalised after the alleged assault and a medical affidavit by Aramu Magodora described Moyo's injuries as severe, but unlikely to cause permanent disability.

Moyo has since made a formal report under RRB number 3822334 at Beitbridge Police.

Ever since Fog founder Andrew Wutawunashe divorced his wife, quarrels have dominated the church after a provisional court ruling said members should share the churches registered in the couple's names.
