The sex starved pastor was said to have dragged the cow from where it was grazing, into a thicket and was busy enjoying himself with the animal when a resident identified as Washington, stumbled upon the strange act.
The shocked Washington who could not believe his eyes, raised an alarm, which brought out the other residents armed with dangerous weapons with the intention of dealing with the pastor but he had fled the scene but was later caught by the pursuing locals.
“Immediately he realised I had busted him, the pastor took off as I shouted at him to get the attention of locals. We pursued and caught up with him as he tried to cross a flooded river.
Had it not been the timely intervention of the area assistant chief, the man of God would not have survived the wrath of furious villagers who were roughing and beating him up,” Washington narrated.
The assistant chief of the village, identified as Mulalo, noted that the suspect was a known clergyman and belonged to the popular Zion Christian Church, popularly known as ZCC Church, which is about the largest church in Southern Africa, with its international headquarters at Zion City, Moria in Limpopo.
However, the local church leaders have disowned Pastor Nkundlande, though two church leaders later confessed that the pastor had worked at their church but was in the process of starting his own church.
