In a shocking turn of events, Reverend Oscar Nyasha Mukahanana, the Harare East District Superintendent, was found dead following an adulterous scandal involving a church member.
The scandalous affair came to light when an audio recording of the pastor’s secret meeting with the lady was leaked on the church’s WhatsApp group. The revelation led to widespread humiliation and ridicule, eventually culminating in the tragic demise of the clergyman.
According to reports by Daily Mirror News, the audio captured Rev. Mukahanana boasting about his affair with the young woman.
