A pastor has sought the protection of the courts from his estranged wife who is disrupting his church services.

Family of Christ International Church congregants and their pastor are reportedly worshipping in fear as their leader’s estranged wife is in the habit of pouncing unexpectedly just to disturb services as a way of fixing him.

Rodwell Mavumahoko has been humiliated by his wife Beatrice Mupungu Mavumahoko forcing him to seek a protection order against her so he could have peace and regain his dignity.

Pastor Mavumahoko said his wife Mupungu who left their matrimonial home in November 2016 had developed a bad habit of coming to his church to disturb services.

“I am applying for a protection order against Beatrice Mupungu Mavumahoko. She should stop her habit of coming to my home and church to disturb services. She should stay away from church meetings and disrupting services,” he said.

However, the woman did not attend the court session and the presiding magistrate Tancy Dube granted the protection order in her absence.
