    Something doesn’t add up here,this is 2018,and the pastor was given the money in 2016? To start with,did the pastor have house for sale? Chances are that this widow was enticing the pastor with money to get sexual or love favours.In short,there was a relationship between the widow and the pastor,but after calling off the relationship,that’s when she comes out to say she was swindled.

      There is a hidden agenda behind this..The pastor was enjoying nicely together with the widow and after realising that money was getting finished, the pastor resorted to another widow who had money..Point should be noted seriously..if thorough investigation will be carried out, info will have it that the Pastor used to come for prayers to widows house but time for lodging out,no one saw him..

    I think that widow was promised something I come you can give someone k170000 nothing happened again you add k90000.it is clearly that that widow was promised to got married by the pastor,now that it took time for the pastor to divorce his wife and marry her.she has now come and out lying that she has been swindled…..ifibabanakashi ukushishita ngafilefwaya ifyupo kuti waya mukulamupa ishafula ifyo,anyway congratulations ba pastor mwalilyamo.

    Why do women fall victim to such? This is not acceptable. Shepherds devour his own flock

    Zambia will be like that widow in these loans. For Znbc we have Topstar, soon we shall have TopZesco for Zesco..Znbc is already like that widow, soon it will be Zesco…China knows you cant sell national asserts companies direct, so first China has to promise you
    economical breakthroughs and promotion… the way that pastor did to that widow through soft free like loans like the Topstar one. Then them take 60% and total control. Can you give more shares in a national project than what you have? Can that happen in America? Or China? Careful TopZesco is coming soon. Selling Zesco blindly like Znbc

      How come politics are discussed in this issue?? What is the relevant here? Just stick to the point of discussion. These are false prophets that the Bible talks about. Zambia let us wake up. Nobody can offer prosperity but God himself. That is too much money to have swindled the poor widow. Many of these pastors are just making the Church asa business, praying on poor victims. That pastor must go to jail.

    My fellow Men of God be careful with money, sex and telling people if things God has not communicated to you.Today other churches their leaders world wide are apologizing for their sexual scandals. To our mum a widow , since 2016 finshi mwalecita? At least you know where the Pastor stay and the business he does. Ulupiya lwalikwata icibanda icikulu.Sit down and get the money back.
