    AFM members complain over US$100 demands

    CHIVI – Several members of the AFM Parish at Chivi Growth Point have called The Mirror and complained against their pastor, Josiah Mudimu who they accuse of humiliating congregants for failing to pay US$100 which is meant for the procurement of a commuter bus.
    Congregants complained that Pastor Mudimu ordered all parishioners to pay US$100 each towards the project but the target is far too out of reach for the parishioners because of the harsh economic times. The congregants who spoke on condition of anonymity said that those who did not pay were called to the front of the church where they were humiliated by being asked questions as to why they were failing to pay the amount.
    The sources told The Mirror that some congregants have since stopped coming to church as a result of what they described as harassment.
    Pastor Mudimu refused to talk to The Mirror when he was called for a comment.
    “You feel harassed and humiliated when you are asked to stand in front of the church and explain why you can’t pay US$100 for the kombi. Some church members have since stopped coming to church to avoid embarrassment,” said a congregant who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals.
    Congregants are also complaining that even if they pay money for development at the church they are not given receipts.
