After public exposure and embarrassment by his own daughter about his s_xcapades cheating on his wife, prominent Harare-based pastor and businessman Shingi Munyeza has announced that he was stepping down from his pastoral role at Faith Ministries Church due to a ‘moral failure’.
Munyeza, who is a member of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Presidential Advisory Council (PAC) and coincidentally a government critic, announced his resignation from leading the church in a Facebook post on Tuesday night. He said:
Recently, I allowed myself into a situation where I fell morally. I failed my wife and family, I failed the church that I am part of.
I, therefore, seek your forgiveness. I’m stepping down to introspect and be restored. I covet your prayers and support. God bless you all.
Munyeza also quoted a Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:7, which reads, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.” He also wrote:
I FAILED. LEADERS MUST NEVER BE SPARED WHEN THEY FAIL! THE WHOLE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE INDIVIDUAL! I WILL RISE AGAIN!”
Munyeza’s cheating scandal blew on his face in the public domain after his only daughter Nomsa publicly challenged her father after he had posted a message saying he loved his wife and would love to be with her forever after 26 years of marriage.
“Happy anniversary to my best friend, confidante, my love and mother of our only daughter. I want to grow old with you, till death separates us. It’s been a great 26 years of growth, learning and joy. God has been great to us, for that I’m truly grateful. I love you always and forever.”
Nomsa posted a message, saying her father was fake as he couldn’t say happy anniversary to her mother or his wife when he had cheated on her and then left her (the daughter) ‘fatherless’.
“Happy anniversary to a wife you cheat on and a daughter you have left fatherless…
“You rather remove this post because you do not cheat on a wife you love, that is called evil.
“Your heart and your pots are out of touch, you do not cheat on someone you love”, Nomsa ranted.
Munyeza however did not reveal the nature of his moral failure and it is debatable whether he would have made the confession if he had not been exposed by his daughter.
Harare Live has gathered, according to some sources, the controversial pastor cheated with Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa and once aborted a baby. Will share more details…
