There’s noth­ing holy about Pas­tor Nkosi’s re­turn to the church. Mon-Wed SABC1 (*191) 20:30

On Wed­nes­day 8 June, the board of the KwaMashu King­dom Church sus­pends Ayanda (Kay Sibiya) fol­low­ing his Tues­day 7 June brawl with Mx­olisi (Naymaps Mapha­lala). But while a pas­tor who beats up his brother in a rage might not be fit to preach, the board is set­ting a wolf to guard its flock when they bring back the dis­graced Pas­tor Nkosi (Mondli Makhoba). “He feels pleased that he’s been called back, just to rub it in Ayanda’s face that he won,” laughs Mondli. “Nkosi wants to win souls and win the church mem­bers’ minds be­cause he be­lieves in God. How­ever, he has his own agenda around that, which is to make more money.”

MORE MONEY

Pas­tor Nkosi daz­zles the con­gre­ga­tion with his pas­sion­ate, charis­matic preach­ing on Mon­day 13 June as the first step to mak­ing his for­tune. “He will preach on of­fer­ing more of­ten and at times he will make them feel guilty – that they need to of­fer more, be­cause he goes on to say every­thing that they have is from God, so why don’t they give it back to God? And he knows that be­tween the con­gre­ga­tion and God is him,” Mondli says, “so every­thing goes through him.”

POWER & PER­VER­SION

Pas­tor Nkosi is also quick to re­veal that he has re­turned from his “time in the wilder­ness” with great power to speak in tongues and also to heal with prayer. “He uses oil that he’s prayed over and he makes peo­ple be­lieve that this oil works. So peo­ple come in and ask for prayers. He will also pray pri­vately.” And for Pas­tor Nkosi, that means time alone with his other weak­ness: women. “He doesn’t touch men, only women,” re­veals Mondli. “He touches them in­ap­pro­pri­ately, but when they open their eyes and look at him, he will look as if he’s deeply in prayer when he does it.”

RE­MOV­ING THE RI­VALS

To re­ally sink his claws into the King­dom Church, Pas­tor Nkosi is go­ing to have to si­lence all other voices. So from Wed­nes­day 15 June, we’ll see him start turn­ing the church against Hlengiwe (Gugu Gumede). It’s go­ing to be an epic bat­tle be­tween good and evil. Take us to church, Uzalo!
