South Africa – The 25-year-old woman from Mayville, Durban, KZN was over the moon when the pastor apparently told her he was in love with her and wanted her to be his wife.
She claims he told her he would introduce her to the congregation, but he never did . . .
Instead, on Sunday, Pastor Simbarashe Hwara of Prophetic Life International Church in Umgeni allegedly told the congregation of another woman that he loved and was going to marry!
“When I met him, I just fell in love with him.
“After a few weeks of dating he told me he was a pastor,” she said.
“He told me that he had a vision that I needed to join his church as I would soon be his wife.”
She claimed at first she told him there would be no s-ex before marriage.
“But he later convinced me an intimate relationship would strengthen our love,” she alleged.
“He told me we must keep our relationship secret because he was new in the congregation.”
She met the pastor in May this year but two weeks ago she ended the relationship.
On Sunday, Pastor Simbarashe allegedly introduced another woman to the church whom he said he was going to marry.
“I think he announced this woman to spite me,” she said.
She showed the People’s Paper angry messages, allegedly from the pastor. Her close friend said she was glad she managed to dump the pastor and his church.
“She is a good woman who deserves nothing but the best,” said the friend.
The pastor’s spokesman Garikayi Mushava said the woman was lying.
“He never dated this woman. She also proposed love to a pastor from Zambia who recently visited us,” said Mushava.
“As for messages, the pastor’s Facebook account was hacked and it wasn’t him who sent the messages. I don’t know anything about WhatsApp messages.”
The woman said the pastor was lying.
“He’s telling people I was possessed by demons,” she claimed.
