A reverend killed himself after having sex with a married woman.
Reverend Menard Zvenyika of Zimbabwe, was accused of impregnating the married woman and was found guilty of adultery.
The reverend was suspended from the church after having sex with Rosemary Nyamukachi, 35. Her husband, Chezhira Mukobvu, filed a lawsuit against the pastor demanding $10 000.
The day the reverend was supposed to be in court over the lawsuit, he committed suicide.
The pastor of the Reformed Church, Rev Zvenyika, has criticized the disciplinary commission.
At the funeral, Makaudze told people that pastors who handled the case of adultery against Zvenyika, relied too much on a woman whom he described as a prostitute.
“What boggles the mind is that they believed evidence given by a woman who claimed she was pregnant when she was not,” said Rev Makaudze.
The pastor also criticized the reverend saying: “no problem is big enough to justify suicide.”
