A pastor with a pentecostal church reportedly confessed during one of his sermons that he had sex with a church member's wife whom he later impregnated.
Pastor Wilson Dhliwayo, in his sermons, also allegedly bragged that even paternal tests would prove that he was the biological father of the unborn child.
This was revealed at the Harare Civil Court, where the man of the cloth had arraigned the impregnated woman's husband, Tendai Gezi, seeking a protection order against him. Pastor Dhliwayo wanted Gezi to be barred from visiting his place place of residence and stop calling him. Gezi told the court that he was the biggest loser saying it was Pastor Wilson who was calling his wife.
"He said he was the father of my unborn child, claiming that he was the one who impregnated my wife. He said this whilst he was preaching in church. What irks most is the fact that he even brags that the DNA tests will prove that he is the one who impregnated my wife. He has also developed a habit of calling my wife over the phone. I am still in the dark as to why he calls my wife," revealed Gezi.
The man also told the court that they once convened a meeting at Man of God, Pastor Wilson's house to discuss the matter. He said they were waiting for the DNA results. "We went to his house on 5 November to discuss the matter. My sister and brother accompanied me to his house where there were some of his relatives," he said.
Responding to the allegations, Pastor Wilson denied having sex with Gezi's wife saying he knows nothing about the matter.
Magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti, who presided over the matter, ordered Gezi to stop calling and visiting Pastor Wilson's place of residence.
