A sex-crazed pastor in Zimbabwe has been arrested for hiring an assassin to kill two members for exposing his sexual escapades.
A supposed man of God in Harare, Zimbabwe, Pastor Thomas Makoni has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for hiring assassins to kill two members of his congregation after they exposed him as a sexual pervert, reports My Zimbabwe.
Pastor Makoni who is the Founder and General Overseer of Gospel of the Kingdom Ministries, appeared before Chitungwiza magistrate, Renika Dzikiti, who remanded him in prison custody while adjourning the case to July 27, 2015, after the prosecutor, Ntombikayise Nleya, said allegations against Makoni arose on June 5, when he hired his childhood friend, Talent Nyakunengwa, to kill two of his church members, accusing them of being the cause of his problems.
The prosecutor further told the court that after Kudakwashe Elliot and Afra Nhanhanga, both of Chitungwiza, had exposed Makoni's sex escapades with several women in his church, Makoni allegedly went to Nyakunengwa’s house during the night where he narrated his story and plan.
The court heard that Makoni tasked Nyakunengwa with the elimination of Elliot by beating him to death. He offered $30 and a Samsung Vinovo cellphone as a reward.
But Nyakunengwa revealed the plot to Elliot. Nyakunengwa then went to Makoni’s church in bandages and told him that he had done the job during which he sustained his injuries. Makoni paid Nyakunengwa as promised.
Two days later, Makoni approached Nyakunengwa and allegedly ordered him to kill Nhanhanga and all occupants in his house using a petrol bomb. Nyakunengwa alerted Nhanhanga. Nhanhanga and Elliot later reported the matter to police.
