Lazarus Muyambi, a retired Anglican cleric who owns Chita Chezvipo Zvemoto (CZM) Primary School, Gokwe St Agnes Children’s Home and a Healing School in Gokwe buried his wife Neddie inside the church in a move that was roundly condemned by a good number of the community members. Some community members went as far as to urge the chief to summon Muyambi and deal with him.
Some of the mourners told NewsDay that:
This is unheard of. Chief Njelele must intervene. This practice will cause drought in the area.
The church is a place of worship and even Jesus Christ was not buried in the church, this will bring a bad omen to Gokwe.
