Pastor “Poisoned” Before Crucial Church Elections
6 November 2020

The Seventh Day Adventist church in Zimbabwe is investigating the alleged poisoning of one of its senior pastors Fortune Chipunza.

Chipunza who is a senior pastor at the church’s North Zimbabwe Conference (NZC) is currently receiving treatment.

The alleged poisoning has been linked to the church’s impending internal polls.  It is unclear whether the church has engaged the police or not.

The Seventh Day Adventist Church NZC spokesperson Pastor Ahmed Kahn told ZTN on Thursday that he is not aware of what really took place.

He added:

We are hoping that results provided by doctors who have worked on him can help us understand what happened and then we will take it from there.

We have asked (Pastor Chipunza) for the results, but he doesn’t want to show them to us. We have asked some people to go and talk to him because without the results, there is nothing we can do.

Pastor Chipunza said he was not in a position to speak to the Press at the moment adding that he was only “focusing on my recovery.”- ZTN News
