$2 000 ex­tor­tion af­ter pas­tor fails to pay hooker $20

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Na­tional News -

She said Pas­tor Kadun­gure made her re­lo­cate to her new lodg­ings in River­side sub­urb since he was now pay­ing her rentals and buy­ing food.

Guduza said the man of cloth even barred her from sleep­ing with other men. “He said he had prob­lems with his wife and he would visit me time and again un­til some­time in Au­gust when he said he was ter­mi­nat­ing our re­la­tion­ship,” she said.

In his af­fi­davit, Pas­tor Kadun­gure said he met Guduza at a food out­let in Gweru in May last year. “That time things were un­well at home and I was try­ing to re­fresh. Later I re­alised that she was a pros­ti­tute and I told her of my po­si­tion to stop the whole is­sue be­cause I’m a pas­tor,” said Pas­tor Kadun­gure.

He said Guduza then started ex­tort­ing money from him threat­en­ing to ex­pose their af­fair to the pub­lic.

“She calls or texts de­mand­ing money of which I don’t have and I’m bor­row­ing from friends be­cause I’m afraid of be­ing ex­posed by her,” Pas­tor Kadun­gure said.

He said be­cause of his as­so­ci­a­tion with Guduza, he was now deep in debt.

“I have been si­phoned monthly rentals, util­ity costs, food costs and I told her back in May that I needed to stop pay­ing but she re­fused and threat­ened me with un­spec­i­fied ac­tion,” Pas­tor Kadun­gure said.

When he filed the ap­pli­ca­tion, he said he had lost $900 to the woman but yes­ter­day, Pas­tor Kadun­gure told The Chron­i­cle that he had erred in his “mo­ment of mad­ness” and the money had gone up to $2 000.

“I gave her about $2 000 to buy her si­lence and it was be­com­ing too much. But please don’t pub­lish this. My life will be ru­ined. It was a mo­ment of mad­ness on my part,” he said. — pchi­tumba1
