It was pure drama recently at Victory Church International when its senior pastor was forced to confess to cheating with a praise and worship member after his wife disrupted a church service on Saturday.
Pastor Frank Kitenge’s wife Diana Kitenge was grabbed by security personal and dragged out of the church after she questioned the participation of Clarity Muza in the praise and worship team when she is accused of dating her husband.
When journalists arrived at the church along Kaguvi Street, the church leader Pastor Paul Mwamba was instructing his security team to make sure Diana was not allowed inside the church.
“I will not go anywhere leaving my husband because you Pastor Mwamba want my husband to marry Clarity, a whore who is wrecking my marriage,” Diana was heard saying as she wrestled with church security.
“Who in this church does not know that Clarity has ruined my family and is getting a blessing from the church leader who is allowing her to sing in the praise and worship group?
“This is Clarity’s nude photograph she sent to my husband and the church is forcing me to remain quiet about it because Pastor Mwamba shares the word on radio. I will not leave my husband here,” said Diana displaying the nude photographs drawing the attention of workers and passers-by around the church.
Pastor Kitenge was asked to accompany Diana out of the church service and he openly confessed to the crowd that he is not an angel to resist Clarity’s love when his house is not in order.
“I have four children with this wife but she is troublesome. I am a pastor yes but also human,” said Pastor Kitenge confirming his illicit affair with Clarity.
“My wife has done a lot of things that affected our marriage and what does she expect me to do as a man? That nude photograph of Clarity she is showing people was doctored, only the head is hers not those legs and exposed private parts,” he said drawing jeers and calling of names from the crowd questioning his pastoral duties.
In an interview with H-Metro, Pastor Kitenge said Pastor Mwamba has failed, so has the church, the help his marriage that the two are staying in different places.
“I was expelled from the church along with my wife after the issue of Clarity was raised and my wife is the one who started circulating nu_de photographs of Clarity,” said Pastor Kitenge.
“Pastor Mwamba is the one who accommodated me in one of the church houses following a failed series of counselling sessions to restore my marriage to Diana.”
“She does not understand and the whole church is now against her actions (because) from time to time she comes to disturb church proceedings like this,” he said.
Diana accuses pastor Mwamba of wrecking marriages and encourages pastors close to him into second marriages claiming that their first marriages are not biblical.
“Pastor Mwamba is facilitating a marriage between my husband and Clarity accusing me of being possessed with evil spirits. If his claims are true where are his powers to cast the evil spirits if any,” said Diana.
“A number of church members’ marriages were affected following his teachings against first marriages because he divorced his wife and is after single ladies in the church,” she added.
