A Glad Tidings Pastor has appealed to Harare Civil Court asking for a Protection Order to restrict a white congregant who provokes him and shouts in the church.
Waynard Ruzvodzo dragged Macbeth Clerk to court after Clerk could not respect the church by keeping quiet and by disturbing the services by calling him a liar in front of the congregants.Clerk also politically influences congregants while the church is impartial in cases of politics so they could support him as he campaigned for being President in 2013 Elections.
“My Lord I wish this man may be restricted from coming to church because he disturbs my sermons in . He shouts and when I confront him so that we could make peace he raise his voice and we end up not solving anything, ”said Ruzvodzo.
Clerk denied the allegations saying he does not interrupt the church sermons but Ruzvodzo is a racist his segregating me from church. He thinks I am politically afflicting other congregants.
“I have been a congregant from 2011.I do not disturb his sermonizes he claims I do. The Pastor throws me out of the church is that what the Holy Spirit teaches him. I am peacemaker and I am everyone’s lover,”said Clerk.
Presiding Magistrate Tafadzwa Mhiti granted Ruzvodzo a peace order against Clerk and ordered Clerk to respect the church.
