Pastor heals with Beer and Meat

Unrepentant pastor strikes again faces $500 000 lawsuit. In 2015, the same pastor made headlines after he was allegedly caught bathing with a married woman destroying her marriage in the process.

Kingdom Shakers Ministries pastor, Tawanda Muchirahondo, is facing a $500 000 lawsuit from Alex Alufisha for bedding his wife, Rutendo Wallen Mvere.

Back then, Muchirahondo’s alleged secret romantic affair with a married congregant, Melody Chizengwe nee Mandiamba was exposed by the woman’s 14-year-old son. Now Alufisha is demanding $250 000 as loss of consortium, $250 000 as contumelia with interest at the prescribed rate from the date of judgement to the date of full payment from the pastor.

Alufisha is represented by Kelvin Kabaya and Calexy Maunga, both of Maunga, Maanda and Associates, and Muchirahondo is represented by Cosmas Chibaya of Chibaya and Partners.

The parties appeared before High Court Judge, Justice Neville Wamambo who was sitting in Mutare on Monday and is expected to pass his verdict soon. In his declaration to the court, Alufisha said Muchirahondo sometime between 2017 and 2018 had an adulterous affair with his wife.

Alufisha said he confronted Muchirahondo and he admitted to the adulterous affair. The declaration read: The defendant apologised to the plaintiff and promised to end the affair with his wife. The plaintiff accepted the apology.

Despite the apology, the defendant went on to resume the adulterous relationship with the plaintiff’s wife for a period not known to him, but he is now aware that the defendant even defiled his matrimonial bed, couches and his home where he slept with the plaintiff’s wife several times in his absence knowing that he was in Harare.

The relationship, however, came to the plaintiff’s attention sometime in December 2019, and he confronted the defendant who again admitted to the adulterous affair.

The defendant has clearly demonstrated to the plaintiff that he has no respect for him and the institution of marriage. These actions have caused plaintiff to lose consortium and suffer great pain. He has suffered damages.

However, Muchirahondo through his lawyer, Chibaya denied ever having an affair with Alufisha’s wife. Reads Muchirahondo’s plea:

There is no proof of the defendant having an affair with the plaintiff’s wife. Defendant denies that he admitted that he was having an affair with the plaintiff’s wife.

The defendant has a five-minute meeting with the plaintiff in Harare in December 2019 where the plaintiff threatened the defendant after making unfounded allegations that the defendant was having an affair with the plaintiff’s wife…

Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi: We will compromise on lobola law. There has been a deadlock between Government and traditional leaders over a clause in the Bill which stipulates that payment of lobola must not be used as a prerequisite for a couple to register any marriage, on the grounds that only the couple can make any conditions for a marriage and that no one else can grant or withhold permission for a union.
