A pastor was arrested on a charge of inciting to commit murder after allegedly hiring two friends to kill church members who caught him having sex with married women, police in Zimbabwe said.
Harare police said that they have arrested 28-year-old Thomas Makoni, after being accused of trying to kill two members of his church.
According to the police investigation, Makoni hired his friend, Talent Nyakunengwa, to kill 27-year-old Kudakwashe Elliot and 40-year-old Afra Nhanhanga both of Chitungwiza, because they exposed his relationships with married women.
Makon offered Nyakunengwa $30 and a mobile phone in exchange for killing Elliot. Nyakunengwa revealed the plot to Elliot before telling Makoni that he had killed him.
Makoni paid Nyakunengwa as promised.
Two days later, Makoni approached Nyakunengwa again and ordered him to kill Nhanhanga and all the occupants of his house by using a bomb.
Nyakunengwa warned Nhanhanga, and he called the police.
