By on

BULAWAYO Pentecostal preacher Pastor Nyathi of Healing Ministries has been beaten to within an inch of death by a member of his congregation after he was caught having an affair with the parishioners’ wife.

Detained for two days and repeatedly beaten by church member Isaac Dube, Pastor Nyathi is currently in a private hospital where is he is battling against death.  Mr Dube discovered the affair after picking up his wife’s phone and noticing that she and the preacher had been exchanging amorous messages.

One family source said: “Mr Dube picked up a phone in his car and at first he assumed that one of the people he had given a lift could have dropped it but got the shock of his life when he read messages. When he read the messages, he discovered one where there was his wife’s name and they were all love messages.”


Following the discovery, Mr Dube hatched a plan to track down his rival which he did with the assistance of a female friend who pretended to be his wife. He then managed to catch the mischievous pastor and interrogated him until he confessed.

“He then took the pastor to his house where he forced him to tell his wife about the illicit affair. When the pastor had confessed before his wife, he ordered him to say his last words to the woman as he was seeing her for the last time.

“They then left for Mr Dube’s home where the pastor was locked up for two days and was given a thorough beating. “They left the man at his home and his family ferried him to a private doctor where he is being treated,” the source added.

When the woman at the centre of controversy realised that her husband was not showing any mercy towards PastorNyathi, she alerted a neighbour who assisted her to take the pastor to his home in the middle of the night. He was then taken to a private doctor for treatment and it is not yet clear if he will survive or not.
