Apostolic Faith Mission pastor, who is identified as Joseph Ponda from Tynwald in Dzivarasekwa, Zimbabwe, was caught having sex with a married female church member inside the bush.
According to reports, the pastor is nursing his wounds after being attacked and humiliated by passers-by and congregation in protest.
The Pulpit was then handed to a final year student Pastor at Living Waters Bible College.
Ponda was left with more questions than answers after one of the church leaders, Bishop Panganai Makarichi visited the assembly and introduced his replacement as he said that an investigation into the matter is underway.
In response to the new developments, Reverend Ponda said he was disturbed and surprised by the Bishop’s decision as church members were seen leaving the church after the pastor’s replacement (as seen in the picture below).
The pastor is yet to comment on the issue which has gone viral.
